We've now harvested over 300 Violet Jasper tomatoes (302)! This tomato plant really took off in early July and then tapered off. Now it seems to be getting a second wind.

Also, we've harvested over 2500 back yard tomatoes this year.

The harvested Large Pink Anna tomatoes are beautiful.

We tried the Black tomato. I liked it, my wife really liked it.

My wife and I took a water safety and CPR class yesterday as part of our ongoing education. We had a good speaker that made it interesting.

This is the fourth day in a row the harvest numbers have increased.
