Black Cherry(1) needs more attention. After falling into Brad's Black Heart on Monday, it's now doubled over in the other direction. I'll need my wife's help in propping it up again. The reason it's falling and doubling over is it has a lot of fruit high up in the tree. Even though the numbers haven't been too crazy for this plant, at some point they will rise.

Yesterday it got up to 106.5 degrees at Pierce College. It's hot! This will sterilize any new blooms (sorry Copper River) for sure, but also push growing tomatoes to maturity.

The Speckled Roman(3) pushes out long Speckled Romans. They're a bit on the thin side, but long, reminding me of a carrot.

Maturing tomatoes include Pineapple(1) and Porkchop(2).
