Harvested Over 3000 Back Yard Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 7 Sunchocola, 7 SunGold, 7 Husky Cherry Red(2), 6 Matt's Wild Cherry, 6 Michael Pollan, 5 Sugar Snack, 3 Persimmon(2) (not Persimmon), 3 Garden Peach(1), 2 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, 2 Solar Flare, Bloody Butcher, Great White, Volunteer(4), Indigo Rose, Snow White, Evan's Purple Pear, Aunt Ruby's German Green, Porkchop(2) and Husky Cherry Red(1) for a total of 57 tomatoes.

Outside of Great White and perhaps Aunt Ruby's German Green, there wasn't much to today's harvest. Well, 6 Michael Pollan tomatoes was nice to see.

If the gardeners come on Saturday I'll have them be aggressive in pulling out the burned out tomato plants.

I just checked on my original harvest prediction for August -- 1650 tomatoes. We've harvested 1226 so far this month, but the harvest numbers are falling fast. It looks like this prediction will be accurate.

We've now harvested over 3000 back yard tomatoes this year (3020)! Also, we've harvested over 600 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes (604) and over 500 SunGold tomatoes (506) this year!
