There was no harvest on Thursday. Neither of us slept well. It got up to 107.2 on Wednesday and we didn't cool down the bedroom like we should have. My wife is ill and our bedroom was simply too hot for us to sleep well. I woke up before 5 in the morning, sweating. So I took care of a couple errands and went out for breakfast.

And yesterday it got up to 109.4 degrees. Yikes! But we cooled the room this time and the night was a tad cooler than the night before. We both slept well, certainly better than the night before.

But boy is it hot. Some of our plants are becoming bone dry. To be fair the plants will become bone dry anyway, just not so soon.

My wife pulled out Big Zebra yesterday and I believe she watered the pots the day before.

We've now harvested over 2300 SunGold tomatoes (2333), over 200 Snow White(1) tomatoes (213) and over 50 Chinese Tea tomatoes (51)!
