The heat finally arrived on Sunday hitting 90. The rest of this week has been 98 to 100 degrees each day. Today will be around the same. I wanted heat for the tomatoes and we got it! Be careful what you wish for....
|Cherokee Purple 1 pound 9 ounces|
|This plant has about 6 big tomatoes.|
|Green Zebra Tomatoes; I made green pasta sauce with these.|
|Black Krim that was planted in July|
|San Marzano that was planted August 1 from one of my extra seedlings.|
|Flame or (Hillbilly) Tomato|
|The aloe's are around 5 feet and Flame' is just about as tall now.|
Tony's watermelon's are getting huge. The Charentais melon's are also doing well, I can't wait to cut into these; this is the first year I have grown them and I have heard the flavor is wonderful.

Tony has calculated that we have picked close to 1000 tomatoes this year!!! Most of these plants are finished now, except for the ones along the driveway that were put in much later. I should be able to harvest from these plants through October. But for now I can use the break, I have processed the majority of these tomatoes, just keeping a few to eat until we can pick more.
