My wife cut back the Sweet 100 over the Thanksgiving break. She was afraid to completely pull it out because of other plants in the pot. In essence it has been pulled out of the ground.

The Green Grape was a real surprise. I had found the tomato along the gravel path outside of the “koi pond” fence. Apparently it had been buffeted there by the winds we've been having over the last several days. I hadn't harvested a front yard Green Grape in 2 months. I had assumed it had no more tomatoes on it.

Our November harvest total ended up to be 181 tomatoes – 163 in the front yard, 18 in the back yard.

We've now harvested 11,116 tomatoes in 2009.
