Harvested Four New Tomatoes; Planted SunGold(2)

Saturday's harvest: 3 Creme Brulee, 3 SunGold(1), 3 Matt's Wild Cherry, 2 SunSugar, Black Krim(2) (new) Japenese Black Trifele (new), Husky Cherry Red(1), Golden Mama and Jaune Coeur de Pigeon for a total of 16 tomatoes.

Today's harvest: 7 SunSugar, 6 Creme Brulee, 4 Stupice (new), 2 SunGold(1), Green Grape (new), Jaune Flamme, Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, Japanese Black Trifele, Husky Cherry Red(1), Matt's Wild Cherry, Volunteer(1) and Honkin' Big Black Cherry for a total of 27 tomatoes.

Yesterday we picked up another SunGold to place in the spot formerly occupied by Nyagous. We got it planted this morning.

I've been doing a fair amount of staking, training and taping on Friday and Saturday. A couple plants are already approaching six feet tall.

Several more plants have tomatoes that are maturing. I don't think I can list them all but here are what I remember off the top of my head: Vorlon, Australian Giant Oxheart and Oaxacan Jewel.

We tried Creme Brulee this morning and we both liked it a lot. A mild, sweet flavor with the tomato taste coming at the end. Two thumbs up! I tried our Jaune Coeur de Pigeon and it was only okay. The tomato is normally good, but this plant is not. We both tried the Volunteer(1) and liked it, but we don't recognize the flavor.

Our Manchester Terrier picked off a ripening Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe last night and ate it.

This afternoon we put a small cage on the second volunteer. It has buds on it. I will be including it on our online spreadsheet shortly.

Black From Tula has a growing tomato on it! We are now down to only two plants without tomatoes. On wait, we just planted another SunGold, so we still have three plants without tomatoes.
