July 2011 Tomato Analysis

Here are our July harvest numbers, by year:

2007 -- 6154
2008 -- 1629
2009 -- 4576
2010 -- 4108
2011 -- 3876

Our numbers for July are solid. If it weren't for the lack of a harvest today, we would have easily had over 4000 tomatoes harvested for the month.

What's notable in these numbers is that the months for July 2007 and July 2009 were greater than all of my harvest for 2008, just over 4500 tomatoes.

To repeat, we planted later this year than we have in other years. This is the first year we took a "mulligan" -- Nyagous only produced one bad tomato. We pulled it early and planted SunGold(2). If that plant takes off we'll have a strong August and September.

The tomatoes have been notably tasty this year. The only "miss" I can think of is Black And Brown Boar. Everything else has been good to outright amazing.

Solid numbers this year, with the potential for stronger numbers (as compared to prior years) in the upcoming years.
