Harvested Over 3000 Tomatoes In July!

Today's harvest includes 24 Orange Paruche, 15 Matt's Wild Cherry, 14 Sunchocola, 11 SunGold, 10 Sugar Snack, 8 Husky Cherry Red(1), 8 Husky Cherry Red(2), 4 Indigo Rose, 4 Evan's Purple Pear, 4 Stupice, 3 Pineapple (6 ounces), 3 Black Cherry, 3 Garden Peach(1), 2 Speckled Roman(1), 2 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, 2 German Orange Strawberry (7.5 ounces, 7 ounces), 2 Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1), 2 Speckled Roman(2), 2 Snow White, 2 Garden Peach(2), Bloody Butcher, Adriana's Grande, Earl of Edgecombe, Hungarian Heart (10 ounces), Blue Beauty (6 ounces), Paul Robeson and Garden Peach(3) for a total of 132 tomatoes.

I was very close to harvesting an undersized Beauty King. It was completely ready by sight, but by feel it wasn't there yet. I'll probably harvest one or two tomorrow.

After harvesting the back yard I did a five second plant watering of each tomato in the ground. We have a heat wave coming and I wanted to give the plants a little drink.

We've now harvested over 3000 tomatoes for July (3058)! It looks like we'll harvest a little less than 4000 tomatoes this month, less than the estimated 5250 at the beginning of the month. Also, we've harvested over 1500 tomatoes in the back yard for this year (1503).
