The Heat Wave Harvest Bump Continues

Today's harvest includes 15 Black Cherry, 10 Snow White(2), 8 Garden Peach(2), 7 Snow White(1), 7 Paul Robeson, 7 Yellow Perfection, 4 back yard Husky Cherry Red, 3 Jaune Coeur de Pigeon, 3 Babywine, 3 Turkish Striped Monastery, 2 Green Zebra(1), 2 Oaxacan Jewel(2), 2 Husky Gold, Jaune Flamme, Mong, Red Grape, German Orange Strawberry, Orange Blossom, and Black From Tula for a total of 79 tomatoes.

The only way I can explain this rise in the harvest is that this heat wave is rushing the existing tomatoes toward maturity. Just remember this when I'm picking less than 10 tomatoes at the end of the month.

Yesterday's high was 101 degrees.

It's good to see Black From Tula again! Last time I picked a Black From Tula was exactly one month ago.
