Everyone post your favorite harvest picture(s) from this year so far! :) I've had the best luck with my Brandywine and Better Boys, though the extreme temps are slowing down the reddening process and making canning a bit more difficult. The first picture is my first Brandywine of the season. It weighed in at almost 3 pounds!!!! The others are just random shots from 2 different days when my harvest first started ripening. :)

RE: Post your harvest pictures!

Aww, thank you very much! This is my 3rd year gardening. I learned from my "Dad" (my father-in-law) who passed away last September from cancer. I've missed having him around to share my successes, so I appreciate you all not minding that I'm sharing it with you instead. :)
This is my first year growing Brandywine, and I'm hooked! I've never tasted such a sweet, meaty, juicy tomato.
I'd love to see pictures from your harvests too!

I'm jealous! :) My Brandywines aren't ripe yet and not much bigger than a baseball. They would normally be ripe by now, but Ma-nature hasn't been kind this year. That pic is like tomato porn..... Got to go wipe the drool off of my chin!

RE: Post your harvest pictures!

Don't get jealous too soon! My most recent pair of ripening ones' skin split around the circumference of the mater. We had a big rain a few days ago, so I attribute it to thin-skinned heirlooms exposed to a lot of water in one day.

RE: Post your harvest pictures!

that is one giant tomato. I will post my harvest pictures but not until another 3-4 weeks. I planted a bit late but most are intermediate varities of heirloom tomatoes. Following is my list that I have growing:
1. 1884
2. Brandyvine
3. Beefsteak
4. Cheorikee Chocolate
5. Cheorikee stipe
6. Black Zebra
7. Italian Pomodoro (dont know exact name, but green top)
8. Cherry (black and red).

I got 2-3 plants of each, right now they are flowering.

Thanks for sharing your harvest pictures, post more!

Looking Good! Some mighty fine chomping to be had in those pics!

Passing through cooling off before a shower and a nap!

So far today ...

Mountain Glory, Jet Star and Brandy Boy ... another bucket+ to pick yet but it is hot and I'm spent. A bit more than last week, which became 38 qts of whole maters, 5 pints of sketti sauce and 7.5 pints of salsa, these will become sauce.

Wow, my excitement over my first little cherry tomato seems silly now... I couldn't imagine what I would do with a table full of tomatoes, lol... I think I'll get there one day though, in a few years when I have a garden, not just a patio :)

Seriously though, very nice y'all! I've got three more little cherries ripening this week and I'll post some pictures when they are picked just to make yours look even better :D

RE: Post your harvest pictures!

cozy, out of curiosity how many plants to do you have in the ground?

I only have 5 plants (2 brandywine, 2 cherokee purple, and 1 that slips my mind at the moment) and Seattle's climate is a bit hostile to tomatoes so I'll be lucky to get any at all.

RE: Post your harvest pictures!

Harvest from last week. Top left to right: Jetsetter, Bear Creek, Jet Star. Middle row: Big Beef, Dona, Big Beef.
Bottom row: Big Beef, Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red.
The middle left and bottom Big Beef boxes are from the same plant. It was from 7 plants in all.


Yay! I learned (or relearned) how to embed a picture!

This is it so far other than a couple of cherries and a zuke. It's Grightmire's Pride(seed from Wintersown.org). I had to bring it in to ripen the rest of the way so the dreaded doe wouldn't get it. She's already pulled a few smaller toms off of other plants. Everything is late this year because of the weather so we're really looking forward to our first BLTs.

WOW! GREAT harvests folks! My teeny garden pales in comparison! Although I do have tons of cherries coming soon!
