Monday Harvest Totals 8/31

This week was finally a week of tomato harvests! You can see what other gardeners have harvested at Daphne's Dandelions.

On Monday I harvested a 5 oz red heirloom and 4.5 oz of cherry tomatoes. I also took another chili pepper and 1.25 oz of lettuce mix.
On Tuesday, I picked the first of the green zebras. It was soft to the touch and more yellow than green in the background color. Also another 3 oz of cherry tomatoes
On Wednesday I picked the two good but ugly yellow brandywines which weighed 13.5 oz and 16 oz of green beans.
On Friday I picked the one and only pink tomato which weighed 11.12 oz, and the last of the red heirlooms which weighed 6 3/4 oz, as well as another green at 2 oz.
Sunday we picked 6 3/4 oz of Romas which were added to paste tomatoes from Farmers market to make a sauce, and a few more cherry tomatoes.

So every harvest this week had tomatoes for a total of 3 1/2 lbs of tomatoes. However, now the yellows, heirlooms, and pinks are gone. Some romas, cherries, and green zebras remain, but no more large tomatoes are in our future this season.

I'm out of large tomatoes too. Well I have some ripening on the windowsill, but no more to pick. The green zebra looks so pretty. Does it taste as good as it looks?

Nice harvest !
Yes, I want to know about Green Zebra too ! :D
(Mine are not ripe yet)

The green zebra taste good, I would describe them as "bright."

However, none of my tomatoes have been super tasters this year. And the sauce we made from the fresh tomatoes, while good, was not the awesome taste it usually is. I'm blaming the lack of heat.

The bounty is really coming in now! All the tom's look great.

I've got green Aunt Ruby's coming. Two different farmer friends insisted I take home a seedling and try a good green tomato. Would love to hear more about your Green Zebra. I just love the reds and yellows and oranges so much.

Beautiful harvest!
