Made a Compost Bin; The Bump Continues

Today's harvest includes 17 Black Cherry, 10 Snow White(2), 8 Babywine, 8 Yellow Perfection, 5 Garden Peach(2), 5 front yard Husky Cherry Red, 5 Paul Robeson, 4 Oaxacan Jewel(2), 3 back yard Husky Cherry Red, 2 Jaune Coeur de Pigeon, 2 Oaxacan Jewel(1), 2 Snow White(1), 2 Black From Tula, Dr. Wyche's Yellow, a front yard Speckled Roman, Black Krim, Mong, SunSugar, White Currant, Orange Blossom, Amazon Chocolate and Garden Peach(1) for a total of 82 tomatoes.

The amazing heat wave harvest bump continues! I don't know how long this will continue but we're happy about it, certainly.

On Saturday I added fertilizer to the back yard container plants and watered them. My wife watered some of the back yard tomato plants. Yesterday I watered the front yard while my wife completed watering the back yard.

Saturday I prepared to take out the front yard Speckled Roman. As I prepared, I noticed a good looking tomato growing in the center of the plant. That tomato was harvested today, having matured quite quickly.

Yesterday we made a compost pile made of wire fencing curled into about a four foot circle. We pulled Berkeley Tie Dye and placed it in the compost pile. There was other gardening done before the evening sun set and any organic materials were placed in the new wire compost bin.

The front yard Husky Cherry Red has now reached over 200 harvested tomatoes (203)! Also, the back yard Paul Robeson has now reached over 100 harvested tomatoes (101).
