Backyard Volunteer Is White Currant

Today's harvest: 2 Stupice, Violet Jasper, Volunteer(1) (White Currant).

Unfortunately, the birds got to the Stupice tomatoes again. We put them in the compost pile.

In the evening I did a bit of training but spent most of the time looking for hidden, ripening tomatoes. I found a ripening tomato on Volunteer(1) (though it wasn't so hidden). I harvested it this morning and it looks exactly like White Currant. The distance between where it was grown last year and this year is something on the order of 50 feet. I don't know how the seeds got there but we're happy it germinated! I've updated my on line documents.

A tomato in one of our containers is maturing. I believe it is Red Cherry.
