Today's harvest includes 73 SunGold, 12 Husky Cherry Red(2), 12 Husky Cherry Red(1), 6 Red Currant, 6 Green Grape, 5 Yellow Currant, 3 Nyagous(1), 3 Sweet Million, 3 Speckled Roman(2), 3 Yellow Perfection, 2 Nyagous(2) (new) (not Nyagous), 2 Tolstoi, 2 Redfield Beauty, 2 Big Bite, 2 Jaune Flamme(1), 2 Crimson Cushion, 2 Carmello, 2 Oaxacan Jewel (9.5 ounces, 13 ounces), Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1) (new) (7 ounces), Speckled Roman(3) (new), Speckled Roman(1), Chinese Tea, Berkeley Tie Dye (6 ounces), Matt's Wild Cherry, Sweet 100, Black Cherry(1), Black From Tula (6 ounces), Black Krim(2) (6 ounces), Thessaloniki, Giant Syrian (11 ounces), Garden Peach, Indigo Rose, Jaune Flamme(2) and SunSugar for a total of 158 tomatoes.

My wife watered the back yard tomatoes yesterday. Afterwards, Black Cherry(1) fell into Brad's Black Heart. I fixed Black Cherry(1) in the morning. But Brad's Black Heart sustained some minor damage.

Two days ago it got up to 98.5 at Pierce College, about a mile away. Yesterday it got up to 103.1. Today may be even hotter. Watch the smaller tomatoes ripen faster (73 SunGolds!) followed by the mid-sized tomatoes and so on. We should have a wave of tomatoes in the few days as the heat pushes them to maturity.

I had a computer board meeting in the evening and brought tomatoes to the other board members.

Maturing tomatoes include Amazon Chocolate and Oaxacan Pink.

We've now harvested over 700 SunGold tomatoes (703)!
