Found The First Caterpillar Of The Year

Today's harvest includes 14 Black Cherry, 9 Snow White(1), 7 Babywine, 7 Snow White(2), 7 back yard Husky Cherry Red, 5 Yellow Perfection, 5 Sweet 100, 3 Garden Peach(2), 3 front yard Husky Cherry Red, 2 Turkish Striped Monastery, 2 Vintage Wine, 2 Tiger Paw, Jaune Flamme, Red Currant, Oaxacan Jewel(2), Dr. Wyche's Yellow (10.5 ounces), Jaune Coeur de Pigeon, SunSugar, Italian Ice, German Orange Strawberry, Plum Tigris and Mexico (12.5 ounces) for a total of 76 tomatoes.

I found our first caterpillar of the season! If was about an inch an a quarter long on the White Currant tomato plant. I gave it to our Manchester Terrier to play with.

Yesterday it got up to 102 again at Pierce College.

My guess is that the increased harvest totals are due to the hot temperatures this past week. If that's true we'll have a severe slide in the harvest total in a couple weeks, if not sooner.
