Harvested Over 8000 Tomatoes This Year!

November 30 harvest: 4 Snow White (front yard) and 2 Carmello for a total of 6 tomatoes.

December 4 harvest: 9 Snow White (front yard), 2 Sweet 100 and SunSugar for a total of 12 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 8000 tomatoes for the year (8014)! We've also harvested over 4500 tomatoes in the front yard (4513) and over 3500 tomatoes in the back yard (3501).

We harvested 214 tomatoes for the month of November, 181 in the front yard and 33 in the back yard.

The past two to three weeks have been cold in the morning. Twice the temperature has gotten below freezing and many times approached freezing temperatures. This is unusual for November. The spotty harvests are due to the freezing weather in the morning. Usually the coldest times of the day are between 6:00 and 7:00 AM around here and I harvest just after 7:00 AM.

If the gardeners had come today I would have left the Snow White in the front yard and have almost every other tomato plant pulled. My wife did pull Husky Cherry Red today as the plant was black due to the freezing temperatures.

We continue to slowly wind it down...
