Harvested 4 New Tomatoes!

Sunday's harvest includes 55 Orange Paruche, 20 Sunchocola, 14 SunGold, 10 Matt's Wild Cherry, 8 Husky Cherry Red(2), 4 Garden Peach(1), 4 Sugar Snack, 3 Ananas Noire (7 ounces, 8.5 ounces, 9.5 ounces), 3 Evan's Purple Pear, 2 Indian Stripe (new), 2 "Green Zebra" (new, not Green Zebra), 2 Indigo Apple, 2 Adriana's Grande (7.5 ounces, 9 ounces), 2 Bread and Salt (6.5 ounces, 6 ounces), 2 Green Grape, 2 Husky Cherry Red(1), 2 Garden Peach(3), Golden Rave (new), Aunt Ruby's German Green (new), Solar Flare, Black Cherry, Odoriko, Cherokee Purple, Yellow Perfection, Earl of Edgecombe (6 ounces), German Orange Strawberry (9 ounces), Pineapple, Jaune Flamme, Nyagous and Michael Pollan for a total of 150 tomatoes.

Today's total matches our high harvest amount for the year, matching Friday's total (two days ago).

Golden Rave looks nice, though that may be the only good tomato we get off of that plant. "Green Zebra" has no stripes and is red. Let's just say you can't be farther away from Green Zebra unless it's cauliflower. Indian Stripe was a bit of a surprise.

The harvested Aunt Ruby's German Green made me do a double take -- could the beautiful Ananas Noires I've been harvesting be another Aunt Ruby's German Green? My wife has convinced me it is not and I agree with her but they are awfully close. The Ananas Noire tomatoes have a very tiny streak of darkness that today's Aunt Ruby's German Green doesn't have. Ananas Noire are greenish brown tomatoes but these tomatoes are heavily on the green side.

Remember last week when I thought Orange Paruche was done with the first wave? Ignore that. This isn't a second wave, it's still part of the first wave.

I continue to be impressed with output of Bread and Salt. Just a lot of nice good sized tomatoes.

We've now harvested over 500 tomatoes in the back yard in July (501)!
