Harvested Adriana's Grande!

Today's harvest includes 9 Orange Paruche, 7 Stupice, 5 Yellow Perfection, 3 Sunchocola, 2 Adriana's Grande (new, 8 ounces), 2 SunGold and Matt's Wild Cherry for a total of 29 tomatoes.

The Adriana's Grande are nice to have but they matured a little early because the branch they were on had bent downward.

We've now harvested over 300 tomatoes this year (304).

My wife roasted a lot of our tomatoes in the oven and they came out great! We also tasted Hungarian Heart and it was fabulous.

I double watered the front yard tomatoes. I gave fertilizer and worm castings to Janet's Jacinthe Jewel before watering. During the watering I did a lot of tomato taping and cutting off some of the dead branches.

Porkchop(1) has a growing tomato. Now everything in the front yard has growing tomatoes.

Vorlon has a maturing tomato, but the plant looks stressed. However, several Bread and Salt are maturing, Earliana is about ready for harvesting and the tomato garden is set to explode. Don't be fooled by the "stressed" tomatoes that have matured, there will be plenty of unstressed tomatoes naturally maturing coming over the next half month or so. And our tomatoes are already really tasty.
