Harvested 50 Gypsy Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 12 Thessaloniki, 8 Black Cherry(2), 5 Black Cherry(1), 4 Yellow Perfection, 4 Red Currant, 3 SunGold, 3 Japanese Black Trifele, 3 Marmara, 3 Snow White(2), 3 Indigo Rose, 3 Snow White(1), 2 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, 2 Oaxacan Jewel, 2 Indigo Apple(2), 2 Red Boar(2), 2 SunSugar, 2 Husky Cherry Red(1), Indigo Apple(1), Black and Brown Boar(1), Dr. Wyche's Yellow, Olga's Round Yellow Chicken Egg, Big Bite, Carmello, Husky Cherry Red(2), Marianna's Peace (11 ounces), Noire Charbonneuse(2), Pineapple(2) and Gypsy for a total of 74 tomatoes.

Thessaloniki is going through a second wave. We didn't harvest Thessaloniki from July 31 to August 12. August 13, 1 tomato. 5 more empty days, then 1 tomato on August 19. Since August 22 we've harvested 35 Thessaloniki tomatoes, at least 1 every day, 19 over the last two days.

We've traded tomatoes with friends over the last several weeks and have received figs and peaches in return.

Yesterday's high: 93.7. That's okay. And it was clearly cooler at night.

It's not clear why the harvest nearly doubled today. It just is.

We've now harvested 50 Gypsy tomatoes this year! When we've tasted Gypsy this year we've liked it.
