Yesterday Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1) was leaning into the lemon tree. So during yesterday's harvest I propped it back to be straight off the ground. Mistake! My wife reported that it had fallen completely to the ground later in the day. She later picked it up and propped it against the Pinapple(1) tomato. I staked it in this morning.

Speaking of which, I was able to point out the half-eaten remains of a Pineapple(1) tomato to my wife. She later disposed it. We looked at Black Cherry(1). I think we'll end up adding a concrete reinforcing wire support trellis for it in the future. Meanwhile it's still doubled over.

Maturing tomatoes include Purple Dog Creek and Delicious. I almost pulled Delicious today so I'll assume it will be ready tomorrow. I know there are other maturing tomatoes.

The two Chile Verde tomatoes look great! The trouble, though, is these are the only two tomatoes on the plant.

Here's an image of today's harvest.

We've now harvested over 1500 back yard tomatoes for the year (1586) and over harvested 2500 tomatoes (2684) this year.
