Harvested Noire Charbonneuse(1) and Carmello!

Today's harvest includes 21 SunGold, 11 Husky Cherry Red(2), 8 Sweet 100, 8 Husky Cherry Red(1),  6 Sweet Baby Girl, 3 Yellow Currant, 3 Matt's Wild Cherry, 3 SunSugar, 2 Green Grape, 2 Nyagous(1), Noire Charbonneuse(1) (new), Carmello (new), Sweet Million and Red Currant for a total of 71 tomatoes.

Yesterday my mother-in-law and her older sister came to visit. We roasted zucchini, eggplant, chile, chicken and skewered tomatoes on the barbeque. The food was good and the company was good as well. We visited a local carnival in our neighborhood for a short period of time. We gave most of our remaining harvested tomatoes to our relatives to take home.

I did a fair amount of hand trimming old and yellowing tomato leaves in the front yard in the evening.

Noire Charbonneuse was my favorite tomato of 2007. The one we harvested today was a little blotchy, but it was ready to harvest.
