Harvested Over 500 SunGold(1) Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 20 SunGold(1), 3 SunSugar, 2 Stupice and Jaune Flamme for a total of 26 tomatoes.

On Sunday my wife pulled out Green Doctors Kiwi(2) and on Tuesday she pulled out the mighty Matt's Wild Cherry. We ended up harvesting an astonishing 2727 tomatoes off of that plant.

We've now harvested over 500 SunGold(1) tomatoes (514)! I'm impressed with the late output. It's not just producing large tomatoes, they're tasty as well!

My wife has 9 maturing pomegranates on her pomegranate tree. She harvested one of them today.

November 2011 Harvest Analysis

The harvest total for November came in at 125 tomatoes. This compares favorably with the October harvest total of 133 tomatoes. No dropoff to speak of.

Why was that? It's pretty clear -- SunGold(1). In October we harvested 26 SunGold(1) tomatoes. In November we harvested 90 SunGold(1) tomatoes. Some were quite large for SunGold tomatoes.

Here are the numbers for November for the prior years:

2007 - 0
2008 - 19
2009 - 181
2010 - 214
2011 - 125

Again, this year's total is right in the middle of the pack.

What does this mean? Nothing. 2007 could be considered our best year. It's too late in the season to glean much meaning from the numbers.
