Over 7,000 Tomatoes!

This is a number I never expected to reach. The new total after today’s pick is 7,008! I used to joke about still picking tomatoes on Christmas Day but that’s exactly what’s going to happen. There are still hundreds of green ones but guess what? There are new branches still popping up with yellow flowers, waiting to become even more tomatoes. I’m tired. I think I hate tomato soup now. People are avoiding me, afraid I’ll show up with another bag of tomatoes. “Here comes Farmer Jones again with another sack. Quick! Lights off, shades down, nobody’s home.”

    Omg Jenny, this plant may never die. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I know you must be tired picking every day. Yellow flowers mean more growth and more tomatoes. I noticed in the picture you have lots of blossoms. This plant really is never ending, seriously. It should have already slowed down by now and if it doesn’t slow down soon it may just go on forever. Poor Jenny 🙁

    Jenny,
    It’s so cool how you have gotten so many tomatoes from that one plant you didn’t even plant! I had six plants and two larger tomato plants and still didn’t reach anywhere near that number! Not to mention something kept eating the larger tomatoes, so I had to pick them while they were still green and let them ripe in the house.
    You must do a great job at taking care of them, I’m excited to see what your final total will be, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this plant of yours lasts for a long time to come!

    Maybe my guess of 10,000 wasn’t so far off after all.
