For the last two months I have been savoring home grown tomatoes from my garden. Not that I am bragging but if you don't grow you own tomatoes, you don't know what you are missing. Rutgers, Cherokee Purple, Beefsteak, Tami G, Sweet 100 and Mortgage Lifter. Of all the varieties the Mortgage Lifter provided the most pounds of big tomatoes.

- One store bought Mortgage Lifter plant was transplanted into the bed on 20 April.
- On July 6, a 13.7oz/388g Mortgage Lifter was the first tomato harvested from the garden.
- As of August 31, 22.19 lbs/10.065kg of ripe Mortgage Lifter tomatoes have been plucked from a single vine.
Let me repeat that. I think it deserves repeating.
One Mortgage Lifter tomato vine produced 22.19lbs/10.065kg of ripe tomatoes from July 6 through August 31.
A plant that is still producing wonderfully tasting vine ripened tomatoes.
|Mortgage Lifter harvested 6 July 2013 weighed in at 388g/13.58oz|
In just three weeks summer will die to autumn. I will leave you with a thought I believe you should take very seriously.
Savor your garden while ye may.
