Pulled Out Nine Tomato Plants

Today's harvest includes 16 SunGold, 8 Snow White (front yard), 8 Violet Jasper, 5 Marianna's Peace, 3 Black From Tula, 3 Snow White (back yard), 3 Gajo de Melon, 3 Stupice, 2 Black Krim, 2 Babywine, 2 Sweetie, 2 Red Currant(2), 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow(1), 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow(2), 2 Pierce's Pride, 2 Zapotec Pleated, 2 Enchantment, Paul Robeson, Azoychka/not Azoychka, Thessaloniki, Jaune Flamme(2), Black Zebra, Weeping Charlie, Green Zebra, Persimmon (6 ounces), Orange Fleshed Purple Smudge, Poma Amoris Minora Lutea and Pineapple (6 ounces) for a total of 78 tomatoes.

Yesterday I pulled out nine tomato plants: Black Cherry, Japanese Black Trifele, Miss Elliotte Black, Aunt Ruby's German Green(2), Speckled Roman, Ananas Noire, Yellow Perfection, T. C. Jones and Nyagous. The season will start to wind down...

I watered the front yard tomato plants this morning.

We tried some of yesterday's harvest in our evening salad. The tomatoes didn't taste as “bright” as they did a month ago but they still taste very good.

My wife noticed our first caterpillar on Sunday. I hadn't noticed it until she pointed it out earlier today. It's a full sized caterpillar. My wife wants to keep it around. We'll see...

We've now harvested exactly 200 back yard Snow White tomatoes.

We ended up harvesting 2165 tomatoes for August, a little over half of July's total of 4108 tomatoes. I'd estimate September's haul at around 650 tomatoes or so.
