Harvested Pink Furry Boar!

Today's harvest includes 44 SunGold, 13 Husky Cherry Red(1), 10 Husky Cherry Red(2), 7 Yellow Currant, 6 Red Currant, 5 Garden Peach, 5 Yellow Perfection, 4 Nyagous(1), 4 SunSugar, 3 Green Grape, 3 Carmello, 3 Crimson Cushion, 2 Berkeley Tie Dye (7 ounces, 16 ounces), 2 Italian Heirloom (9 ounces, 8 ounces), 2 Matt's Wild Cherry, 2 Noire Charbonneuse(1) (7 ounces, 6.5 ounces), 2 Big Bite (9 ounces), 2 Black From Tula (7 ounces), 2 Pineapple Pig (9.5 ounces, 9 ounces), Pink Furry Boar (new), Dr. Wyche's Yellow, Sweet Million, Black Cherry(1), Snow White(1), Watermelon (9.5 ounces) and Indigo Rose for a total of 128 tomatoes.

I couple of tomato plants in the back yard had a 45 degree angle -- they got top heavy -- so I needed to stake them. I also staked a couple more (Berkeley Tie Dye being one of them) that had issues.

Something besides a bird ate a big chunk out of a large Big Zebra tomato last night. Perhaps an opossum?

My wife went to a party last night with some friends and of course she brought tomatoes. According to the consensus at the party, Pineapple Pig was a little watery and bland. But the tomato "chips" dried in the humidifier was a huge hit. The first batch was completely gone -- nothing remained.

Pink Furry Boar is a cute looking tomato, looking somewhat like an apple.

Both Pierce's Pride plants have maturing tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 600 SunGold tomatoes (630) and over 300 Husky Cherry Red(1) tomatoes (307). And we've harvested over 2000 tomatoes for the year (2006).
