Harvested Over 500 Babywine Tomatoes For The Year

No harvest done yesterday.

Today's harvest includes 5 Babywine, 3 Snow White(2) and a back yard Husky Cherry Red.

We've now harvested over 500 Babywine tomatoes for 2009 (501)! We've been real pleased with this tomato, I'd be happy to grow it again. I wouldn't call it outstanding, but it is quite good.

In the near future I'll be cutting down the posts to one or two a week. Posting about harvesting two or three tomatoes with nothing else to say doesn't make for compelling reading.

A Pleasant Surprise

Today's harvest includes Snow White(2), Babywine and Dr. Wyche's Yellow (8.5 ounces) for a total of 3 tomatoes.

The Dr. Wyche's Yellow was a pleasant surprise. I didn't know this plant had a tomato that large on it!

The temperature got down to 41.5 earlier this morning.

We've now harvested over 100 tomatoes for the month (102).

Double Digit Harvest Days Are Behind Us For 2009

Sunday's harvest: Snow White(2) and Babywine for a total of 2 tomatoes.

On Saturday I mentioned to my wife that I think our double digit harvest days are over this year. I had pored over Snow White(2) and while there are a lot of growing tomatoes on this plant, there were few mature ones. As you can tell by this harvest, that proved true.

Today's harvest: 2 Snow White(2) and Patio Princess for a total of 3 tomatoes.

I stapled the loose fence on the west side of the “koi pond” back to their fence posts Sunday afternoon.
