Harvested Back Yard Aunt Ruby's German Green Today!

Today's harvest includes 15 Snow White (front yard), 9 Principe Borghese, 6 SunGold, 4 Violet Jasper, 2 Husky Cherry Red, 2 Red Currant(2), 2 Pierce's Pride (one 7.5 ounces), 2 Black From Tula, 2 Yellow Perfection, 2 Aunt Ruby's German Green (back yard) (new), Japanese Black Trifele, Aunt Ruby's German Green(1), Aunt Ruby's German Green(2), Babywine, Black Krim, SunSugar, Dr. Wyche's Yellow(1), Weeping Charlie, Berkeley Tie-Dye Heart, Black Zebra, Snow White (back yard), Thessaloniki and Toni's Round for a total of 59 tomatoes.

Almost for certain this will be the only day this year in which we harvest from all three Aunt Ruby's German Green tomato plants.

We've now harvested over 3500 tomato plants from the front yard (3520).

I've been soaking our compost pile over the last couple of days. It's working – I see the pile has fallen a few inches.

I watered the front yard tomato plants this morning. I watered the back yard tomato plants and fertilized the container plants a couple days ago.

Oooh, I forgot to mention that when I watered the back yard, I discovered another tomato volunteer!

There won't be another update for a few days as I will be out of town until Sunday.
