Harvested Over 5000 Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 21 SunGold, 8 Snow White (front yard), 5 Husky Cherry Red, 4 Red Grape, 3 White Currant, 3 T. C. Jones, 2 Yellow Perfection, 2 Orange Fleshed Purple Smudge, 2 Babywine, 2 Garden Peach, 2 Brown Berry, 2 Red Currant(1), 2 Enchantment, 2 Gajo de Melon, 2 Azoychka/not Azoychka, Jaune Flamme(2), Snow White (back yard), Red Currant(2), Principe Borghese, Michael Pollan, Black Krim and Large Pink Anna (13.5 ounces) for a total of 69 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 5000 tomatoes for the year (5033)! However, our pace has slowed down significantly. For instance, we have around 57 tomato plants in the back yard and we only harvested 26 tomatoes from the back yard today. Our tomatoes have tasted great this year and both my wife and I think this year has been a real success...but it appears that the numbers won't tell the whole story. As it stands right now, we stand little chance of reaching last year's harvest totals even though there are 20 more plants in the ground.
