Harvested Six New Tomatoes Today!

Today's harvest includes 49 SunGold, 21 Husky Cherry Red(1), 21 Husky Cherry Red(2), 11 Black Cherry(1), 7 Sweet Million, 5 Matt's Wild Cherry, 5 Red Currant, 4 SunSugar, 3 Sweet 100, 3 Nyagous(1), 2 Snow White(1) (new), 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow (18.5 ounces, 7 ounces), Speckled Roman(1) (new), Creme Brulee (new), Jaune Flamme(2) (new), Tolstoi (new), Black and Brown Boar(2) (new), Noire Charbonneuse(1), Speckled Roman(2) (6 ounces), Ella's Pink Plum, Yellow Perfection, Carmello, Yellow Furry Boar and Taxi for a total of 145 tomatoes.

The Dr. Wyche's Yellow is a beauty. I hope to get an image over the next day or so.

The Speckled Roman(2) is another beauty. It has more of the "hand grenade" girth that I love to see. The Speckled Roman(1) has some blossom end rot but still looks pretty good.

The new Snow White(1) tomatoes are not as ivory colored as I'm used to seeing. They're more whitish than ivory in color.

Black and Brown Boar(2) is another nice looking tomato. We weren't too thrilled with it last year. But this tomato looks very, very nice.

Tomorrow we'll be harvesting Black From Tula. I was quite tempted to harvest one or two but held off.

I don't know if I've ever harvested six new tomatoes in one day. I think that's a new one for me.

Here's an image of some pickled tomatoes my wife made last night.

The tide is coming in! I don't think we'll get to this total over the next couple of days, but the tide is coming in.

We've now harvested over 300 SunGold tomatoes (333) this year.
