First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Yesterday’s tomato count was 6,681. I just went outside and picked 22 tomatoes for a new grand total of 6,703. And the winner of a $100 American Express gift card is… Marithia! She guessed exactly 6,700 (only three off from the total). Marithia has a little something extra to be thankful for today.
Marithia is the 8th Grade Transition Program Coordinator at her local Junior High School. “My job is to prepare our 8th graders for high school, by teaching them study skills, test taking skills, organization skills, and how to advocate for themselves!”
Congratulations, Marithia and thanks to everyone for playing.
In the summer I was picking up to 150 tomatoes a day and now that it’s cooler, I’m still picking every day, averaging around 20 a day. I do expect the total to reach over 7,000 before this plant expires. (for new visitors, I did NOT plant this cherry tomato plant. It just started growing in my back yard!) Happy Thanksgiving to all and… easy on the pie!
