Wow, where'd all these tomatoes come from? Snow White had topped out and several plants are "old" after producing a lot of fruit. This morning I kept pulling good sized tomato after good sized tomato after good sized tomato...

My wife has been working her butt off all week preparing various tomato dishes and distributing our harvest. She's taking a day off today from tomatoes.

There's still a lot of Matt's Wild Cherry to harvest...
