Finally, Some Heat!

Today's harvest includes 18 SunGold, 15 White Currant, 14 Violet Jasper, 6 Marianna's Peace (one 6 ounces), 6 Garden Peach, 5 Red Grape, 5 Husky Cherry Red, 4 Yellow Perfection, 3 Zapotec Pleated, 2 Japanese Black Trifele, 2 Taxi, 2 Principe Borghese, 2 Red Currant(1), 2 Red Currant(2), 2 Green Grape, 2 Green Zebra, 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow(2), 2 Snow White (back yard), 2 Thessaloniki, 2 Jaune Flamme(2), Gypsy, Black, Toni's Round, T. C. Jones, Ananas Noire, German Orange Strawberry, Speckled Roman, Dr. Wyche's Yellow(1), Black Krim, SunSugar, Stupice, Orange Fleshed Purple Smudge and Poma Amoris Minora Lutea for a total of 111 tomatoes.

Our weather is finally warming up! It got up to 95 degrees yesterday. This will help mature the tomatoes on the vine. It also sterilizes some of the flowers so they never become tomatoes so it's both good and bad. Today should be just as warm if not warmer.

The back yard Aunt Ruby's German Green finally has a tomato growing on it! There are two in the front yard. Aunt Ruby's German Green(1) has some good sized tomatoes growing on the vines. Aunt Ruby's German Green(2) is the same height (roughly 5 feet) and has one very small tomato growing in slow motion, if at all.

My wife watered some of the back yard tomatoes.

I need to stake several of the tomato plants.
