Harvested Over 550 SunGold Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 10 SunGold, 6 Sunchocola, 6 Husky Cherry Red(1), 6 Husky Cherry Red(2), 5 Sugar Snack, 3 Porkchop(2), 2 Pineapple, 2 Speckled Roman(2), Speckled Roman(1), Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, Blue Gold, Blue Beauty, Volunteer(4), Black Icicle, Persimmon(1) (not Persimmon), Solar Flare, Black Cherry, Green Grape and Michael Pollan for a total of 51 tomatoes.

Last night I had a turkey sandwich with sliced Blue Gold tomato. From what I could tell, Blue Gold is a good tomato.

Today's Blue Beauty was a fairly nice tomato, so was Blue Gold. The rest was fairly routine. Notable was the lack of any harvested Matt's Wild Cherry.

We've now harvested over 550 SunGold tomatoes this year (554)!

Harvested Over 6000 Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 9 SunGold, 8 Sunchocola, 7 Sugar Snack, 5 Husky Cherry Red(2), 3 Matt's Wild Cherry, 3 Husky Cherry Red(1), 2 Black Cherry, 2 Green Grape, Bread and Salt (6 ounces), Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1) (6 ounces), Volunteer(4), Black Icicle and Michael Pollan for a total of 44 tomatoes.

The Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1) and Bread and Salt tomatoes were nice, the rest was pretty much unremarkable.

We've now harvested over 6000 tomatoes this year (6041)! We've had a great tomato tasting year but the numbers aren't going to be as good as the taste. There's a good chance that we do not make it to 7000...but we'll see. We've also harvested over 1500 tomatoes in August (1502).

Harvested 625 Matt's Wild Cherry Tomatoes This Year

Today's harvest includes 10 Sunchocola, 7 Sugar Snack, 6 Husky Cherry Red(2), 5 SunGold, 4 Matt's Wild Cherry, 3 Michael Pollan, 2 Green Grape, 2 Husky Cherry Red(1), Earl of Edgecombe, Blue Gold, Speckled Roman(2), Volunteer(4) and Black Cherry for a total of 44 tomatoes.

Not only did we harvest a fair amount on Sunchocola tomatoes, there were some really nice ones in the bunch. Sunchocola had been getting "wobbly" with inconsistent maturing on the tomato. But there were several harvested low that were both perfect and large. Blue Gold was interesting as well.

We've harvested exactly 625 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes this year, though that barely qualifies as a milestone. We'll hit a major milestone tomorrow.

Harvested Over 200 Husky Cherry Red(2) Tomatoes This Year!

Today's harvest includes 9 Husky Cherry Red(1), 6 Sugar Snack, 5 SunGold, 5 Husky Cherry Red(2), 3 Sunchocola, 3 Green Grape, 2 Pineapple, 2 Michael Pollan, Matt's Wild Cherry, Evan's Purple Pear, Persimmon(1) (not Persimmon) and Dr. Wyche's Yellow for a total of 39 tomatoes.

The harvested Pineapple tomaotes looked all right but the rest was unremarkable. Well, Husky Cherry Red is unremarkable at best but that's why we like it. It's just a normal, productive tomato plant.

Now there are at least three tomato plants to be pulled. We're in pulling mode...

We've now harvested over 200 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes (204) this year! The Husky Cherry Red(2) plant is producing more than Husky Cherry Red(1) due to the fact that the leaves of Husky Cherry Red(2) are draping over Husky Cherry Red(1). Husky Cherry Red(2) is blocking the sun from Husky Cherry Red(1).

Also, we've harvested over 250 Sugar Snack tomatoes (255) this year.

No harvest Sunday.

Today's harvest includes 17 Sugar Snack, 10 SunGold, 7 Matt's Wild Cherry, 6 Green Grape, 6 Husky Cherry Red(2), 5 Sunchocola, 3 Volunteer(4), 3 Michael Pollan, 2 Blue Gold, 2 Evan's Purple Pear, 2 Dr. Wyche's Yellow, 2 Porkchop(2), 2 Husky Cherry Red(1), Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1), Ananas Noire, Purple Bumble Bee and Golden Rave for a total of 72 tomatoes.

Ananas Noire, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye(1), Blue Gold and Porkchop(2) were relatively interesting tomatoes while most of the rest were unremarkable.

My wife watered the front yard tomato plants over the weekend. The back yard tomato plants are still to be watered.

Two more plants can be pulled. We'll see if I can get to them tonight.

We've now harvested over 1000 back yard tomatoes in August (1046)! Our back yard harvest still hums along. Also, we've harvested over 950 Sunchocola tomatoes (951) this year.
