Harvested Over 3000 SunGold Tomatoes This Year!

Tuesday's harvest includes 24 SunGold tomatoes.
Wednesday's harvest includes 25 SunGold, Husky Cherry Red(1) and Snow White(2) for a total of 27 tomatoes.
Thursday's harvest includes 37 SunGold, 2 Snow White(2) and Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total of 40 tomatoes.
Today's harvest includes 33 SunGold, 2 Snow White(2) and Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total of 36 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 3000 SunGold tomatoes this year (3013)! The scary thing is this plant has a lot of new blooms and may have another large harvest in the next month or so.

Having noted that, I'm pleasantly surprised by the SunGold harvest during this month. My internal harvest prediction for October was going to be 200 tomatoes and after the first week I thought that would be too high. We've harvested 320 SunGold tomatoes this month, 395 overall so far.

We've had Santa Ana winds the past couple of days. Both Snow White(2) and SunGold are noticeably less tall -- they've been blown to the west. It's unclear what damage has been done, if any.

Our new dog found a hornworm on Snow White(2).

We have definitely passed our all time harvest high for a year (2009/11,155 tomatoes). We are currently at 11,267 harvested tomatoes and the number will continue to rise.
