Four More Plants With Tomatoes

Yesterday's harvest: Husky Cherry Red(1) and Husky Cherry Red(2) for a total of 2 tomatoes.

Today's harvest: Husky Cherry Red(1).

Not much to report. I didn't do much training over the last couple of days, but I did do some training in the back yard this morning and the front yard tomatoes last night.

Plants with new tomatoes include Jaune Flamme(1), Porkchop(2), Marianna's Peace and Purple Dog Creek. I'm sure there are others.

Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1) Has A Growing Tomato!

Yesterday's harvest: 2 Husky Cherry Red(1) and 2 Husky Cherry Red(2) for a total of 4 tomatoes.

Today's harvest: Husky Cherry Red(2).

My wife watered the container plants and about half of the back yard tomatoes in the ground yesterday.

And I continue to "train" the tomato plants.

Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1) has a growing tomato.

The two recent plants in the ground, Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red and Aunt Ruby's German Green, both look quite good. We're happy that we pulled out two struggling plants and replaced them.

Harvested Red Currant; Two More Plants With Tomatoes

Today's harvest: Red Currant and Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total of 2 tomatoes.

I forgot to mention we moved the two currant tomato plants (Red Currant and Yellow Currant) to a more sheltered position underneath the patio cover on Saturday.

I asked my wife "Why move them? SunSugar did well there."
She replied "They're in smaller pots. They're getting too hot in their current location."
Checkmate. She's right.

So we moved them yesterday. I noted they looked a little whitish in color in comparison with the other container plants.

My wife watered the front yard tomatoes in the morning.

I trimmed off the lower branches for all the tomato plants in the back yard in the late afternoon. This was the second time I did this.

I noted that Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(2) and Gypsy had growing tomatoes.

Also, I spent a bit of time training the tomato plants. The branches on the larger tomato plants are growing between one and two inches a day. A plant could be fully "trained" today and need more "training" the next day.
