The kids came over today, and nearly 43 pounds of tomatoes were picked. They ran the gamut from green to ripe and every shade in between. Seems like John loves fried green tomatoes! My, there are still a LOT of tomatoes out there, but it's supposed to get into the thirties tonight, so it's possible no more will be picked.
Scott also took a grocery bag full of green peppers, a bunch of carrots, four large green onions, a bowl of cherry tomatoes and a bunch of parsley...and I forgot to weigh them before he left! I am going to give it an educated guess though, as I need every ounce I can get to reach 1000 pounds. I'm sure there were at least five pounds of peppers in that bag (probably more), the carrots I've been pulling have come in between 11-13 ounces, so I'll call these 12 ounces, onions will count as 6 ounces and the parsley at 2 ounces. I won't worry about the cherry tomatoes. I'm up to 973.685 pounds! I have no doubts the parsnips will bring it up to goal.
