Well, there's good news: I think I figured out what's eating some of our tomatoes. There's bad news: I think I figured out what's eating some of our tomatoes. While harvesting in the back yard, a rat was walking across our north cinder block wall.

Technically I didn't complete the harvest. I left the last row of the back yard in the interest of time.

My wife spent almost all day processing tomatoes in various forms. This morning she took all the smaller tomatoes, added oil and began to roast them in the oven.

Maturing tomatoes include Paul Robeson and Omar's Lebanese. I know there are others.

Is Nyagous(2) another Speckled Roman? There are similarities...

Today's Pineapple Pig harvest looks great.

We've now harvested 100 SunSugar tomatoes this year. Also, we've now harvested over 2000 back yard tomatoes this year (2031) and over 2500 tomatoes for July (2582)
