The Tide Is Coming In!

Today's harvest includes 25 Husky Cherry Red(2), 24 Matt's Wild Cherry, 19 SunSugar, 8 Garden Peach, 7 Husky Cherry Red(1), 7 Bloody Butcher, 6 SunGold(1), 6 Sweet Carneros Pink, 6 Black Krim(2), 5 Vorlon (7 ounces, 8 ounces, 7 ounces, 6 ounces, 9.5 ounces), 5 Jaune Flamme, 5 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, 5 Snow White, 4 Haley's Purple Comet, 4 Southern Night (6 ounces), 4 Black And Brown Boar, 3 Golden Mama, 3 Orange And Green Zebra, 3 Stupice, 3 Black Krim(1) (7 ounces), 3 Crimson Cushion (18.5 ounces, 19.5 ounces, 7 ounces), 3 Cassidy's Folly, 2 Pink Berkeley Tie Dye (11.5 ounces), 2 Kellogg's Breakfast (7 ounces, 6 ounces), 2 Indian Stripe, Porkchop (6.5 ounces), Patio, Lime Green Salad, Green Grape, Black Seaman(2), Dr. Wyche's Yellow (7 ounces) and Portuguese Neighbor (19.5 ounces) for a total of 171 tomatoes.

The tide is coming in! Today's total is nearly 100 more tomatoes than last Thursday's harvest, nearly double Friday's harvest. Remarkable!

Again, we have some beautiful, large tomatoes in today's batch. Crimson Cushion and Portuguese Neighbor lead the way.

I'm surprised at how productive Husky Cherry Red(2) has been!

Over the past couple of days we have been cleaning out our second freezer. It was defrosted and cleaned out over the weekend, then placed in a more convenient location within our garage. And just in time! Also we've been doing many small and not so small upgrades to our house.

We've been giving away a fair amount of our tomatoes but now there are simply too many to give away. My wife is roasting some of today's harvest as I type this.

We now know which color the Brandywine plant will be. It will be a Yellow Brandywine. Also, a large Persimmon has started to mature.
