Today's harvest includes 23 SunGold, 17 Husky Cherry Red(2), 16 Husky Cherry Red(1), 6 Sweet 100, 4 Nyagous(1), 4 Matt's Wild Cherry, 4 Yellow Currant, 4 SunSugar, 3 Sweet Baby Girl, 2 Sweet Million, 2 Red Currant, 2 Black Cherry(1) and Crimson Cushion for a total of 88 tomatoes.

I was going to post that Yellow Furry Boar was a bit of a surprise, but it was damaged (It looked like a bird had pecked it). I figured my wife wouldn't try to salvage it, though it was a possibility. She didn't. She tossed it. I still counted this one because it didn't prematurely mature do to malformation -- it's just the first tomato for that plant got hit by a bird's beak.

The Green Zebra plant appears to be diseased.

I did a fair amount of staking and taping yesterday evening. A fair amount of plants are leaning due to growing up out the top of the cage and getting top heavy. It's getting harder and harder to maneuver around some of these plants...

My wife watered the patio tomato plants yesterday.

Taxi, Creme Brulee and Jaune Flamme(2) have maturing tomatoes. I'm sure there are others. The maturing Dr. Wyche's Yellow is large.

We've now harvested over 200 SunGold (217) tomatoes.
