The TomatoMania event at the Loteria Grill was a ton of fun! We brought German Orange Strawberry, Pineapple Pig, Indigo Apple, Yellow Furry Boar, Pineapple and Pink Furry Boar for consumption. We met fellow TomatoManiacs again and of course it's fun to reconnect and all. My wife brought tomato jelly for Scott Daigre. He made sure to stash it away. My wife also got an autograph from him for his recent article in Grow magazine.

My wife and I had a blast. Lots of tomatoes and good food. Time went by very quickly.

Last night we tried Aunt Ruby's German Green and it was terrific!

I told my wife that she can pull Chile Verde. Others may be going soon.

A Pineapple(2) tomato is maturing.

We've now harvested over 2200 SunGold tomatoes (2216). And we've harvested over 500 back yard tomatoes this month.
