One smart tomato.

We are having a bumper tomato crop this year and are keeping busy BWB canning them. We do get some misshapen tomatoes in the bunch but we got one really brainy one this morning. http://tinypic.com/r/20f37k/9

Hang on to it Ross, I'm turning 77 this month and I may need it to replace my old brain. <G>
That is one weird tomato.
Our tomato crop for this year so far, has been dismal, small, odd shaped, no taste tomatoes, pulled the last plant up about a month ago. This has been one of our hottest summers in a long time.

Damn, I can't ever win contests. If I live to 82 that will be a totally new family male age. Most of our women live to 88 to 89, MIL lived to 100 + 8 months, her cousin lived to 101+ but all those women were coddled all their lives. We hearty men just manage to get along. <G>
I do find that a couple of naps a day keep me and the little dog happy. Just got up from one and feel the urge for another. Alas, I have to start cooking for the women around 1700 hours or they may get angry.
It's cloudy and 102F on the back porch, I am hoping for a nice rain but not a hurricane rain. I am amazed at the Gypsy pepper in the long bed, we planted it in the spring of 2015 and it is still producing peppers on a regular basis.

that looks like many of our tomatoes this year too. a lot of loss during cleaning and chopping due to stem throughout the fruit. figure it is the heat and water related, even if we've kept up watering it has been so hot and dry for so long (until the past few weeks) that i doubt we could keep up with the needs of these huge fruits.
as it was i have been surprised by how few BER tomatoes or tomatoes rotting on the plants. a few have been broken while trying to get them off the plants as they are so large and wedged in there.
i think we're about 2/3 of the way through harvesting. a large enough crop for sure to keep us busy for a few more weeks.
