Lots and Lots of Rain...
December 24 harvest: 16 Snow White, 2 SunSugar.
Yesterday's harvest: 39 Snow White, 4 SunSugar.
The harvest has been spotty due to a lot of rain over the last week and a half. That and it's too cold when I get up in the morning. Yesterday's Snow White harvest was handled by my wife during the afternoon.
My wife is making preparations for next years crop. She has purchased a plastic enclosure to house the tomato seedlings. I think she'll start the seedlings in a day or so.
There were near torrential rains between the harvest on the 17th and the 24th. Many of the ripe tomatoes were discarded due to severe splitting. Some of the splitting was so severe the tomato nearly turned inside out! I've never seen such behavior before.
The Snow White is showing signs of minor frost damage and is finally looking old.
