Harvested Over 11000 Tomatoes This Year!

Monday's harvest: 20 SunGold, 3 Snow White(2) and 2 Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total of 25 tomatoes.
Saturday's harvest: 23 SunGold, 5 Snow White(2) and 4 Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total of 32 tomatoes.
Today's harvest: 15 SunGold, 3 SunGold and 2 Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total 20 tomatoes.

We didn't harvest from Tuesday - Friday as we were out of town. We flew from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Some people on the plane saw Air Force One over to the right (Obama was traveling from Los Angeles to San Francisco for fundraising). Our landing was delayed because of it.

We took BART to our hotel. I bought three tickets but the machine spit out only one and then failed. I had to go find help with the receipt to get credit for the other two tickets. We got to the hotel (it's really a residence/club but we'll call it a hotel) and our keys wouldn't work in the door. So we got replacements. They didn't work, either. The master key worked, but nothing else. It took a bit over a day to actually get our own keys.

But don't let that get you down. It was a great room, we were happy and had quite a good time.

Apparently it rained while we were away. We got some minor rain in San Francisco but it was quite minor.

Thursday the Giants clinched their playoff series with the Cincinnati Reds. I got to see office workers across the street watch the game from their offices (we were on the fifth floor overlooking Market Street). That was fun to watch.

I picked off a hornworm on Snow White(2) today.

Anyway, we've now harvested over 11,000 tomatoes for the year (11,013)! I believe our one year record is 11,155 in 2009 but I'm too lazy to look it up right now. Also, we've harvested over 2750 SunGold tomatoes for the year(2790).
