Harvested Four New Tomatoes Today!

Today's harvest includes 16 Orange Paruche, 6 Sunchocola, 3 Earliana, 2 Yellow Perfection, 2 SunGold, 2 Sugar Snack, Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, Vorlon (new), Evan's Purple Pear (new), Jaune Flamme (new), Husky Cherry Red(2) (new) and Stupice for a total of 36 tomatoes.

This should be about the tenth Jaune Flamme harvested but the first nine have been eaten by scrub jays. Speaking of which, we haven't seen the scrub jays in about a week or so. My wife has noted that there are large crows patroling our neighborhood now. Note that the scrub jays didn't get our exposed Cherokee Purple tomatoes yesterday.

We finally breached 30 tomatoes today, reaching 36. Don't be surprised if within three weeks it's over 130 tomatoes. We'll see.

The harvested Vorlon is a "stress" harvest (maturing quicker due to stress) and is tiny. The plant itself seems stressed. The other newly harvested tomatoes look just fine.

Here's a before and after image of our roasted tomatoes from a few days ago.
