Harvested Black Cherry, Vorlon and Hungarian Heart!

Today's harvest includes 2 Black Cherry (new), Vorlon (15.5 ounces) (new), Hungarian Heart (new), Porkchop and Husky Cherry Red for a total of 6 tomatoes.

The Vorlon tomato was a thing of beauty, just short of a pound. That's pretty large for mid-June. The Black Cherry tomatoes were a pleasant surprise. They looked quite good as well.

Here is a picture of the harvest over the last two days. It's a modest harvest, but growing...

A Supersweet 100 tomato is maturing and will probably be picked tomorrow.

We tried the Vorlon tonight at dinner. I tried it, liked it, but my wife just loved it. She cut off another slice and she loooooved it. Later on I tried some more and I can see her point -- it got juicier and more delicious in a different part of the tomato. Great stuff!!!

Harvested Porkchop and Sweet 100!

Sunday's harvest: Husky Cherry Red and Stupice for a total of 2 tomatoes.

Today's harvest includes 2 Yellow Perfection, Porkchop (new) and Sweet 100 (new) for a total of 4 tomatoes.

First, I messed up in my last blog post. It was Sweet 100 that was maturing, not Juliet. And we harvested that tomato today. And I forgot to mention that Hungarian Heart has a maturing tomato. That will be picked tomorrow or Wednesday.

I did water the two SunGold tomatoes by hand. I also watered Green Zebra because it looks terrible.

Sunday morning I added tomato fertilizer to all the back yard tomato plants. I also added planter mix to the two Husky Red tomato plants. But we did not have time to water in the fertilizer for all the plants, nor did I have time to train or cut off the dragging branches.

We brought all our uneaten tomatoes to my in-law's house early Sunday afternoon.

I was expecting to throw away Porkchop this morning but there wasn't any blossom end rot. Hooray!
