Pink Berkeley Tie Dye and Great White are Winners!

Today's harvest includes 15 Matt's Wild Cherry, 9 Sunchocola, 8 SunGold, 8 Sugar Snack, 6 Evan's Purple Pear, 5 Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, 5 Orange Paruche, 5 Stupice, 5 Husky Cherry Red(2), 4 Bloody Butcher, 4 Bread and Salt (7 ounces, 6.5 ounces), 3 Indigo Rose, 3 Neves Azorean Red (13 ounces, 6 ounces), 2 German Orange Strawberry, 2 Aunt Ruby's German Green (6 ounces), 2 Garden Peach(1), Speckled Roman(1), Indigo Apple, Porkchop(1) (6 ounces), Yellow Perfection, Adriana's Grande, Blue Gold, Pineapple, Speckled Roman(2), Jaune Flamme, Black Icicle, Solar Flare and "Green Zebra" (not Green Zebra) for a total of 98 tomatoes.

Today's harvest star is Neves Azorean Red. My wife instantly noticed the large Neves Azorean Red on the counter this morning, even though we still have parts of prior harvests on the counter as well.

Last night my wife made a two panini sandwiches. Inside one of them was Pink Berkeley Tie Dye and the other had Great White. Both were warm. The Pink Berkeley Tie Dye was delicious and almost refreshing, though it had the high acid kick at the end. Great White was quite good, too. But I think Great White makes a good "support" tomato, such as in a warm panini sandwich. If Great White were eaten standalone, it might be a little dull while Pink Berkeley Tie Dye can certainly be eaten solo and have it be memorable.

There are several plants to be pulled. Adriana's Grande is ready to go after an excellent July. I don't like the output of the current Black Krim tomatoes and Stupice is ready to go.

I beat the Thursday sprinklers this morning (Woo-hoo)! However, I tend to harvest quicker than normal. I've noticed that I tend to skip Black Cherry on sprinkler days, for what that's worth...

No milestones today.
