Harvested Oaxacan Jewel(2)!

Today's harvest includes 23 Husky Cherry Red(2), 22 Matt's Wild Cherry, 17 Husky Cherry Red(1), 12 SunSugar, 11 Snow White, 9 Black Krim(1), 8 Haley's Purple Comet, 6 Sweet Carneros Pink, 5 Jaune Flamme, 5 Southern Night (6 ounces, 6,5 ounces, 12 ounces), 5 Golden Mama, 5 Black And Brown Boar, 5 SunGold(1), 4 Orange And Green Zebra, 4 Black Krim(1), 4 Garden Peach, 4 Kellogg's Breakfast (9 ounces, 6 ounces, 16 ounces, 7.5 ounces), 3 Lime Green Salad, 3 Crimson Cushion (11 ounces, 17 ounces, 16.5 ounces), 3 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red (11 ounces, 8 ounces), 3 Large Pink Anna(2) (6 ounces, 8 ounces), 2 Green Grape, 2 Oaxacan Jewel(2) (new), 2 Black Seaman(2) (6 ounces, 6.5 ounces), 2 Bloody Butcher, 2 Paul Robeson(2) (6.5 ounces, 6 ounces), 2 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, Vorlon, Indian Stripe, Porkchop, Stupice, Green Zebra(2) (not Green Zebra), Portuguese Neighbor (11.5 ounces), Dr. Wyche's Yellow (8.5 ounces), Green Doctor's Kiwi(1) (not Green Doctor's Kiwi) and Large Pink Anna(1) for a total of 182 tomatoes.

In spite of the growing numbers we may be topping out soon. SunSugar and Matt's Wild Cherry appear to be on the downside of their first harvest wave, but both are still quite strong and will have another harvest wave or two. Up and comers are Garden Peach and especially Snow White. The two Husky Cherry Red tomato plants have been remarkably productive.

Again, we've had some beautiful one pound tomatoes harvested today -- Kellogg's Breakfast and two Crimson Cushion tomatoes.

When my wife came into the kitchen she wanted to know what these large attractive red tomatoes were -- Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red!

Yesterday my wife watered a lot of the tomato plants. She also pulled out five tomatoes with too much damage -- Black Cherry, Paul Robeson(1), Emerald Evergreen, Creme Brulee and Chocolate Stripes(2).
