I picked seven tomatoes today.

There are only six in the bowl, because I dropped one and the wood chips on the ground cut the side a little. Emergency Tomato Protocol required that I immediately eat it, still warm from the sun and everything. Woe. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

It was pretty good. I've noticed two things about these tomatoes: they're very fleshy (which isn't to say they're dry; they aren't, but they don't have big juice-and-seed containing chambers either), and the skin is a little weird. Not thick or tough, but when I eat a tomato, the thin outer skin stays intact and I end up having to spit it out. It's like I should be skinning these before eating them.

They're still quite good, and I have another half-dozen well on the way to ripening.
