Harvested Over 100 Indigo Rose Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 21 Black Cherry(1), 16 SunGold, 14 Snow White(2), 11 Husky Cherry Red(1), 10 Husky Cherry Red(2), 9 Snow White(1), 7 SunSugar, 5 Yellow Perfection, 5 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, 4 Indigo Apple(2), 4 Indigo Rose, 3 Carmello, 2 Speckled Roman(3), 2 Pink Furry Boar, 2 Nyagous(1), 2 Red Boar(2), 2 Redfield Beauty, 2 Red Boar(1), 2 Ella's Pink Plum, 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow, 2 Indigo Apple(1), Kellogg's Breakfast, Chinese Tea, Oaxacan Pink, Olga's Round Yellow Chicken Egg, Sweet Million, Red Currant, Big Bite, Pineapple Pig, German Orange Strawberry (7.5 ounces), Japanese Black Trifele, Neves Azorean Red (15 ounces), Italian Heirloom (9 ounces), Amazon Chocolate, Noire Charbonneuse(2), Watermelon (7 ounces), Pineapple(2) (22 ounces), Gypsy, Marmara, Taxi and Tolstoi for a total of 147 tomatoes.

Yesterday's high: 103.2. It's still hot!

I noticed a flaw in the on line spreadsheet yesterday. The amount of harvested Neves Azorean Red was too high. I found the flaw and fixed it. The July numbers adjusted downward. The original reported amount of 6088 plummeted to...6068.

What a beautiful Pineapple(2)! I don't think I've pulled such a heavy tomato this late in the season. This tomato buried the pretty 15 ounce Neves Azorean Red, another good tomato.

We have more plants to pull.

I don't plan to harvest tomorrow.

We've now harvested over 850 Husky Cherry Red(1) tomatoes (857), over 100 Indigo Rose tomatoes (101) and 50 Speckled Roman(3) tomatoes this year.

Harvested Over 9000 Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 34 Black Cherry(1), 18 SunGold, 15 Husky Cherry Red(2), 14 Snow White(2), 8 Husky Cherry Red(1), 6 Snow White(1), 4 Carmello, 4 Red Boar(1), 4 Indigo Apple(2), 4 Yellow Furry Boar, 3 Noire Charbonneuse(2), 3 Redfield Beauty, 2 Vorlon, 2 SunSugar, 2 Indigo Apple(1), 2 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, 2 Olga's Round Yellow Chicken Egg, Nyagous(1), Speckled Roman(1), Black and Brown Boar(1), Ella's Pink Plum, Pineapple Pig, Brad's Black Heart (7 ounces), Oaxacan Pink (6 ounces), Black and Brown Boar(2), Italian Heirloom, Amazon Chocolate, Black Cherry(2), Earl of Edgecombe, Watermelon (7 ounces), Pineapple(2) (19 ounces) and Indigo Rose for a total of 142 tomatoes.

Yesterday's high: 99.7 degrees. There's something wrong when 100 degrees feels like a relief...

My wife took out Persimmon, Ramapo and Omar's Lebanese. We harvested 16 Persimmon and 7 Omar's Lebanese but both were successful plants. It's not just numbers, but the quality and size of the harvested tomatoes.

My wife also completed the front yard watering and most of the back yard tomatoes as well. There's more to remove but I need to look them over before deciding which ones go. She also made more sauce from our tomatoes.

Last night I tried Yellow Furry Boar again as part of dinner. There was no fur on any of our Yellow Furry Boars this year but it tasted smooth, juicy and quite good. Our August tomatoes still have it...

Today's harvest was definitely heftier than it has been in a while. The Pineapple(2) looks beautiful!

We've now harvested over 9000 tomatoes for the year (9104)! Also, we've harvested over 1500 back yard tomatoes this month (1568).

We've harvested over 600 Black Cherry(1) tomatoes (611) and over 50 Indigo Apple(2) tomatoes (57) this year.

And on a personal note, this is my 1000th blog post!

Harvested Over 100 Nyagous(1) Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 38 Black Cherry(1), 22 SunGold, 13 Snow White(2), 8 Husky Cherry Red(2), 8 Snow White(1), 6 Nyagous(1), 5 Indigo Apple(1), 5 Husky Cherry Red(1), 5 Indigo Apple(2), 3 Sweet 100, 2 Black and Brown Boar(2), 2 Tolstoi, 2 Black Cherry(2), 2 Yellow Perfection, 2 SunSugar, Ella's Pink Plum, Red Currant, Redfield Beauty, Chinese Tea, Vorlon, Speckled Roman(2), Delicious (7.5 ounces), Amazon Chocolate, Indigo Rose and Porkchop(2) for a total of 133 tomatoes.

Yesterday's high: 105.1. But the heat wasn't as oppressive and the air was noticeably clearer in the evening. Is the heat wave gripping the area finally going to break?

My wife pulled Berkeley Tie Dye, White Zebra and Noire Charbonneuse(1) from the front yard. Also, Matt's Wild Cherry was severely cut back a few days ago. There's several in the back yard that can be pulled -- beefsteaks, mostly -- but I haven't told my wife yet.

My wife also watered the front yard tomatoes and some of the back yard tomatoes.

Last night my wife cut up Porkchop and Vorlon for dinner. They were both delicious! Winner and winner.

We've now harvested over 2000 tomatoes this month (2010). My prediction for the whole month was 2400 tomatoes and we've reached 2000 before the halfway point. Obviously we'll blow by my prediction but our harvest is currently dominated by cherry tomatoes. As the weather cools, so will the harvest numbers. It doesn't look like it now but we could be down to about 30 per day by the end of the month.

We've now harvested over 2450 SunGold tomatoes (2461) and over 100 Nyagous(1) tomatoes (103) this year.

Yesterday's high: 105.8. It was particularly warm at night, making it difficult to sleep.

My wife made sauce out of some of the tomatoes but other than that, not much happened. It's been so hot that other house items have backed up.

We've now harvested over 500 front yard tomatoes this month. Also, we've harvested over 700 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes (715) and over 200 Snow White(2) tomatoes (205) this year.

Yesterday's high was 107.8. Need I say more?

I was going to mention that while most of the cherry tomatoes are thinning out, Black Cherry(1) still had a fair amount to tomatoes to mature. As you see but the sudden increase, some of them matured yesterday!

Today's harvested Neves Azorean Red tomatoes look quite nice.

Black Krim(2), Sweet Baby Girl and Creme Brulee were pulled. I told my wife that three more in the front yard could also be pulled.

We've now harvested over 5500 back yard tomatoes this year (5502). Also we've harvested over 2400 SunGold tomatoes (2415), over 500 Black Cherry(1) tomatoes (502) and over 250 Snow White(1) tomatoes (251).

We did distribute some tomatoes to our friends in the West Adams district but other than that, nothing happened. Look at the second paragraph...
