Harvested Matt's Wild Cherry

Today's harvest: 2 SunGold, Matt's Wild Cherry

There are more Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes maturing. Within a couple of days we should be harvesting this tomato every day for some time to come. Several Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe tomatoes are maturing as well.

Last evening I checked with my wife regarding the container plant with a new tomato on it. I thought it was Aunt Ruby's German Green(1) and she verified it.

I had to use a stake this morning on one of the plants underneath the lemon tree. I'm already constricted in my manuevering through these plants because they are simply thriving. I can only imagine trying to navigate my way through this area 60 days from now.

Every plant in the "corner office" has growing tomatoes. I believe every container plant has growing tomatoes. Every plant in the "Middle East" (the area around our eastern fence which traditionally has not done well for tomatoes, where we harvest asphalt and rocks when planting) has tomatoes. Every plant in the south garden has tomatoes.

The "koi pond" has two plants without tomatoes. The area by the lemon tree in the back yard has one plant without a tomato. The three plants look healthy and it's just a matter of time before they show tomatoes.

Three of the four plants in the backyard cutout appear to be too weak to support tomatoes. The fourth -- Black From Tula -- was planted on May 15. It's too early to tell if it will get tomatoes but it is a good sign that I do see a bloom on it.
