Harvested Over 4000 Tomatoes In July!

Today's harvest includes 61 SunGold, 11 Snow White (front yard), 9 White Currant, 9 Garden Peach, 8 Husky Cherry Red, 6 Poma Amoris Minora Lutea, 5 Black Krim (6.5 ounces, 6.5 ounces), 5 Azoychka/not Azoychka, 4 Japanese Black Trifele, 4 Babywine, 4 Red Grape, 4 Red Currant(1), 3 Snow White (back yard), 3 Sara Black (8 ounces, 11 ounces), 2 Violet Jasper, 2 Red Currant(2), 2 Jaune Flamme(2), 2 Gajo de Melon, Paul Robeson, Gypsy, Thessaloniki, Nyagous, Enchantment, Sweet Tangerine, Emerald Evergreen (10.5 ounces), Brown Berry, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye, Aunt Ruby's German Green(1) (7 ounces), Patio, Stupice and Sweet 100 for a total of 157 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 4000 tomatoes for the month of July (4003) and over 4500 tomatoes for the year (4540).

And in an unusual anomaly, as of today we've harvested more front yard tomatoes (2296) than back yard tomatoes (2244). What makes this unusual is that we're growing only 20 tomato plants in the front yard and (depending on what you count) 57 in the back yard, nearly triple the number.

My wife cut up a Large Pink Anna tomato and added as part of a dish. While none was left to eat directly without the enhancement of other foods, the tomato clearly tasted fresh and somewhat “bright”. This isn't unusual for a cherry tomato that can pack a punch, it is unusual for a tomato that weighs more than a pound. I believe we have a winner in Large Pink Anna.
