Last night the Manchester Terrier got to a ripe Turkish Striped Monastery. However, this is the second time he's grabbed a tomato only after a late dinner. He was fed dinner after 10 PM and may have simply been hungry. It's possible that this dog actually has gotten the idea to leave them alone.
Also last night we tried Big Yellow Zebra. I thought it was overripe (we tried the first one) but my wife didn't like it at all. She even mentioned how much she didn't like it at tonight's dinner. At the time I told her to keep an open mind because this tomato was overripe. She understood.
Today I was the tomato Santa Claus. I brought bags of tomatoes for my mechanic, my brother and his wife and my mother. Everybody was happy to get them.
Also I visited my mother and father in law, took their two dogs and brought back their Green Zebras to sample. Their best harvest day was yesterday as well, harvesting 33 tomatoes. The mother in law does the harvesting and she lined them up for her husband to see.
We took more pictures of the 27.5 ounce Mexico plant. I'll post them later when I have more time.
