1,000 lbs (July Update)

With over 300 lbs in July alone, I am reaching uncharted territory in yield.  Tomatoes are literally turning ripe before my eyes, and the numbers are staggering.  The canning operation is in full swing, with salsas, tomato sauces and juice being put up for the “colder” months of San Diego when the nighttime temperatures might drop down to the low thirties.  Brrrr?

Zucchini, Tromboncino squash, Bell peppers, and Cucumbers also are growing well right now.  It will be interesting to see if the extreme heat of August halts some of this production, as it had a tendency to do last year.  Reflecting back on last years late summer garden, I may have yanked out some of the heat-stricken plants too early.  This year, I am going to see if they can make a comeback if August does start to stifle production.

Total yield for the year so far:  612 lbs.

  1. I am jealous! Here in Liberal (Oregon) we just got our first three ripe tomatoes yesterday! Big difference a few lines of latitude make 🙂
