Harvested Over 400 Snow White(2) Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 19 SunGold and 3 Snow White(2) for a total of 22 tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 400 Snow White(2) (401) tomatoes! Outside of SunGold, this will in all likelihood be the last "landmark" we hit for an individual tomato plant.

Speaking of SunGold, we've now harvested over 3300 SunGold tomatoes (3315)! I think we'll get to 3500 tomatoes for SunGold but what happens after that remains to be seen..

Harvested Over 11,500 Tomatoes For The Year!

Last Sunday's harvest includes 29 SunGold and Snow White(2) for a total of 30 tomatoes.
Monday's harvest includes 24 SunGold and Snow White(2) for a total of 25 tomatoes.
Tuesday's harvest includes 16 SunGold and 2 Snow White(2) for a total of 18 tomatoes.
Wednesday's harvest includes 10 SunGold, Husky Cherry Red(1) and Snow White(2) for a total of 12 tomatoes.
Thursday's harvest includes 21 SunGold and Snow White(2) for a total of 22 tomatoes.
Friday's harvest includes 9 SunGold and Snow White(2) for a total of 10 tomatoes.
Saturday's harvest: 9 SunGold tomatoes.
No harvest today.

We've now harvested over 11,500 tomatoes for the year (11575)! Also, we've harvested nearly 3300 SunGold tomatoes (3296)! It doesn't look like we have enough to make 12,000 before the end of the year but we will get close.

We've hit a cold snap over the last couple of days so the production has slowed down.

This is as good a time as any to go over the October numbers. I didn't post it as a separate blog post but my estimate was 200 tomatoes for the month. After the first week in I was bringing it down to something like 160 or 150 tomatoes.

We ended up harvesting 491 tomatoes for October.

What happened? Well, you know. SunGold got a strong second wind. We harvested 404 tomatoes in the front yard and all of them were SunGolds. Good SunGold tomatoes.

I have no estimate for November. At this point there isn't much left but staying warm and harvesting the ripe ones...
