Harvested Black and Brown Boar!

Today's harvest includes 8 SunSugar, 6 Matt's Wild Cherry, 3 SunGold(1), 3 Creme Brulee, 3 Husky Cherry Red(2), 2 Black and Brown Boar (new), 2 Bloody Butcher, 2 Volunteer(1), 2 Stupice, 2 Paul Robeson(1), Black Cherry, Japanese Black Trifele, Golden Mama, Vorlon (9 ounces), Husky Cherry Red(1), Indian Stripe, Pierce's Pride, Honkin' Big Black Cherry and Jaune Flamme for a total of 42 tomatoes.

I spent a fair amount of time in the evening staking and taping tomatoes under the lemon tree. The tomato plants in this section are notable for two things. 1) They are very tall. Most are 5 1/2 to 6 feet tall. A branch on Orange and Green Zebra is nearly seven feet tall. Already. Fruit is everywhere. 2) No harvested tomatoes in this area. The tide is coming...

Yesterday we tried a Lime Green Salad. We both found it a tad mushy, but we also agreed I may have harvested it a bit early.

The nine ounce Vorlon harvested today is a beautiful looking tomato. A typical brown tomato with green shoulders, but beautiful.

More maturing tomatoes include Chocolate Stripes(1) and Black Seaman(2).
