Harvested Three New Tomatoes!

Wednesday's harvest includes 9 Garden Peach, 8 Yellow Perfection, 8 Black Cherry, 6 Blue Beauty, 5 Green Grape, 5 Jaune Flamme, 4 Pineapple, 4 Isis Candy, 4 Jersey Giant, 3 Shah/Mikado, 3 Piement, 3 Indigo Rose, 3 Husky Cherry Red, 2 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red(2) (new), 2 SunGold(2), 2 Kellogg's Breakfast (8 ounces), 2 "Something Orange" (20 ounces, 14 ounces), 2 Husky Red(1), 2 Supersweet 100, 2 Speckled Roman(2), 2 Speckled Roman(1), Hungarian Heart, Porkchop, Paul Robeson, Missouri Pink Love Apple, SunGold(1), Grande (11 ounces), Snow White, Juliet and Husky Red(2) for a total of 90 tomatoes.

This will in all probability be our high harvest day (90 tomatoes). That's...not very high. However, the "Something Orange" tomatoes look great and the Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red(2) looks pretty good for being in the raised bed.

I believe most of these tomatoes were brought down to my in-law's residence by my wife.

Thursday's harvest includes 6 Yellow Perfection, 5 Jersey Giant, 5 Black Cherry, 4 Aunt Ruby's German Green (8 ounces, 6 ounces, new), 4 Green Grape, 4 Garden Peach, 4 Indigo Rose, 4 Blue Beauty, 2 Kellogg's Breakfast, 2 Jaune Flamme, 2 Pineapple, 2 Supersweet 100, 2 Speckled Roman(2), 2 Porkchop, 2 Shah/Mikado, 2 Paul Robeson (6 ounces), 2 Amos Coli (7 ounces), 2 Isis Candy, 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow, Husky Cherry Red, Crynkovic, Ananas Noire, "Something Orange" (14.5 ounces), Cuor de Bue (10 ounces), Juliet and Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red(2) for a total of 65 tomatoes.

The Aunt Ruby's German Green look quite good. Most of the tomatoes have a very light red blush to go along with the darker green mature color.

Friday's harvest includes 9 Black Cherry, 7 Jersey Giant, 4 Supersweet 100, 4 Yellow Perfection, 3 SunGold(1), 3 Isis Candy, 3 Green Grape, 3 Shah/Mikado, 2 Juliet, 2 Porkchop, 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow, 2 Paul Robeson, 2 Jaune Flamme, 2 Garden Peach, Amos Coli, Indigo Rose, Husky Cherry Red, Pineapple, SunGold(2), Blue Beauty, Pineapple Pig, Snow White, Ananas Noire, "Something Orange" (12 ounces), Sweet 100 and Husky Red(1) for a total of 60 tomatoes.

Saturday's harvest includes 7 Snow White, 5 Black Cherry, 5 Sweet 100, 5 Shah/Mikado, 4 Garden Peach, 3 Supersweet 100, 3 Porkchop, 2 Husky Cherry Red, 2 Cuor de Bue (6 ounces), 2 SunGold(1), 2 Jaune Flamme, 2 Blue Beauty, 2 Pineapple Pig (6 ounces), 2 Isis Candy, 2 Garden Peach, Amos Coli, Piement, Japanese Black Trifele, Kellogg's Breakfast (6 ounces), Pineapple, Dr. Wyche's Yellow (7 ounces), Aunt Ruby's German Green (13 ounces), Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red(2) (6.5 ounces) and Husky Red(2) for a total of 54 tomatoes.

I went down to Orange County in the morning. I brought two days harvest of tomatoes. I gave a bag to a barista in Tarzana, two bags of tomatoes to my mechanic in Westminster, and two bags of tomatoes to my mother. Later on I visited my in-laws. My wife and I got back late in separate cars.

Sunday's harvest includes 9 Sweet 100, 8 Black Cherry, 6 Blue Beauty, 5 Snow White, 5 Garden Peach, 5 Jaune Flamme, 4 Rosella Purple (8 ounces, new), 4 Shah/Mikado, 3 Indigo Rose, 3 Husky Cherry Red, 3 Pineapple, 2 Amos Coli (6.5 ounces, 6 ounces), 2 Jersey Giant, 2 Speckled Roman(2), 2 Pineapple Pig (6 ounces), 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow (9 ounces, 12 ounces), 2 Isis Candy, 2 Yellow Perfection, Hungarian Heart, Vorlon, Speckled Roman(1), Black and Brown Boar, SunGold(1), Japanese Black Trifele, Cuor de Bue, Juliet and Supersweet 100 for a total of 78 tomatoes.

"Rosella Purple" is another Aunt Ruby's German Green. First off, it's not purple, it's green. We tried it for dinner. It was delicious but it was Aunt Ruby's German Green. I'll need to adjust the spreadsheet at some point...

Earlier we had tried Paul Robeson and it was actually pretty good. The skin was a bit tough but otherwise was just fine.

Today's harvest includes 14 Snow White, 4 Husky Cherry Red, 4 Pineapple, 4 Black Cherry, 4 Jaune Flamme, 3 Indigo Rose, 3 Yellow Perfection, 3 Green Grape, 3 Blue Beauty, 2 Porkchop, 2 Amos Coli, 2 Supersweet 100, 2 Isis Candy, 2 Piement, 2 Jersey Giant, 2 Aunt Ruby's German Green (6 ounces, 6 ounces), 2 SunGold(2), 2 Shah/Mikado, Paul Robeson, Dr. Wyche's Yellow, Garden Peach and Husky Red(2) for a total of 64 tomatoes.

My wife roasted today's tomatoes for tonight's dinner. They were terrific with the pasta.

During this period we harvested over 2000 tomatoes for the year (now we stand at 2157) and over 1000 harvested tomatoes in the back yard for July (now stands at 1093).

I know updates have been spotty but we've been busy with life...
