Harvested Over 5000 Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 66 Matt's Wild Cherry, 17 Snow White, 11 Garden Peach, 7 Haley's Purple Comet, 6 Husky Cherry Red(2), 6 SunGold(1), 5 Golden Mama, 5 Orange And Green Zebra, 4 SunSugar, 3 Pineapple (11 ounces, 10 ounces), 3 Pink Berkeley Tie Dye (7 ounces), 3 Aunt Ruby's German Green(1), 3 Sweet Carneros Pink, 3 Green Zebra(2) (not Green Zebra), 2 Oaxacan Jewel(2), 2 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, 2 Husky Cherry Red(1), 2 Kellogg's Breakfast (8 ounces), 2 Large Pink Anna(2), Persimmon (9 ounces), Neves Azorean Red (7.5 ounces), Bloody Butcher, Porkchop, Big White Pink Stripe, Portuguese Neighbor (9 ounces), Southern Night, Dr. Wyche's Yellow (6.5 ounces), Cassidy's Folly, Australian Giant Oxheart, Paul Robeson(2) (8 ounces), Hungarian Heart (10 ounces), Coyote (not Coyote), Jaune Flamme, Large Pink Anna(2), Honkin' Big Black Cherry and Green Doctors Kiwi(2) for a total of 169 tomatoes.

We have now harvested over 5000 tomatoes for the year! The tomato total will slow down dramatically when Matt's Wild Cherry gets exhausted, but we are on a pace to harvest about 10,000 tomatoes this year (my guess). Speaking of Matt's Wild Cherry, we've now harvested over 1100 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes this year.

As you saw in my previous posting, my wife has laid down hay in the "koi pond". This will help keep the ground more temperate and the hay will eventually work into the soil.
