Harvested Over 3500 SunGold Tomatoes This Year!

November 14 harvest includes 30 SunGold and Snow White(2) for a total of 31 tomatoes.
November 15 harvest includes 23 SunGold tomatoes.
November 16 harvest includes 15 SunGold tomatoes.
Then we had two days of rain followed by 2 days of me getting up before dawn.
November 21 harvest includes 51 SunGold and Snow White(2) for a total of 52 tomatoes.
November 22 harvest includes 10 SunGold and Snow White(2) for a total of 11 tomatoes.
November 23 includes 8 SunGold tomatoes.
November 24 harvest includes 15 SunGold tomatoes.
November 25 harvest includes 9 SunGold tomatoes.
No harvest on November 26.
November 27 harvest includes 13 SunGold tomatoes.
November 28 harvest includes 19 SunGold tomatoes.
November 29 harvest includes 11 SunGold tomatoes.
No harvest today, too much rain.

We've now harvested over 3500 SunGold tomatoes (3510)!! That's a remarkable number. And the tomatoes themselves are still quite good. We had some of them in a bean soup last night and they were excellent.

We ended up harvesting 432 tomatoes for November, which is quite a high number so late in the season. Let's see how it compares to prior years:

2007 -- 0
2008 -- 19
2009 -- 181
2010 -- 214
2011 -- 125

Yeah, 432 is a remarkable number.

We harvested more front yard tomatoes in November (413) than in October (404). All of these front yard tomatoes are SunGold tomatoes.

We've now harvested nearly 11,800 tomatoes this year (11,795). We have a reasonable shot of hitting 12,000 this year, though a December frost can pretty much kill that idea.

It's been a great year for tomatoes!
