Yesterday my wife made another tomato salad for a barbeque party in the evening. She cut up Garden Peach and Oaxacan Jewel and some other red tomato, mozzarella cheese and dressing. The Garden Peach was good but the Oaxacan Jewel was nothing short of fabulous.

The larger Pineapple Pig harvested today is a beautiful tomato. I know my wife will put that one to the side. The Japanese Black Trifele looks great as well.

For some reason today was "throw rotten tomatoes in the garbage" day. The two maturing White Zebra tomatoes were hopelessly flawed and thrown away. Two Dr. Wyche's Yellow tomatoes had bad flaws. One could be salvaged and I kept that one but the other one was too far gone. There was a large tomato on the ground in the "moat" (Persimmon?) badly decaying. It took two paper towels to get most of it out.

Pink Furry Boar is maturing. In fact there was another, more mature Pink Furry Boar tomato with two bites out of it that needed tossing as well.

Here's an image of our dog in and among the tomato plants in the back yard cutout:

We've now harvested over 1000 tomatoes for the month of July (1014).
