Again, today's numbers got goosed upward because I didn't harvest on Saturday.

Speckled Roman(2) kicked out a lot of tomatoes but it's because the plant has basically died. We have three or four more that can be pulled.

Friday's high: 103.1. Yesterday's high: 97.4. It's still hot but we may get cooler weather in the near future.

We hit a few numeric landmarks today. We've now harvested over 6000 tomatoes from the back yard this year (6074). Also, we've harvested over 2500 SunGold tomatoes (2527), over 750 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes (759), over 650 Black Cherry(1) tomatoes (659), over 250 Snow White(2) tomatoes (254), over 100 Sweet Million tomaotes (104) and over 50 Speckled Roman(2) tomatoes (51).
