This is being written just after the tomato tasting party at Loteria Grill but I'll save that for tomorrow's post.

Yesterday my wife completed watering the back yard. She also made fig jam. However, she said she used the wrong pectin so it's more of a fig sauce/syrup than a jam.

In the evening we tried Aunt Ruby's German Green and it was delicious!

We've now harvested over 7500 tomatoes this year (7576) and we're still going strong. This could be a tremendous year. Also we've harvested over 650 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes (657) for the year.
