End of season in approximately 2 weeks.
Very warm days and nights. Daily temperatures ranged between 28°C – 31°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 18°C - 22°C.
Reasonable volumes harvested.
Quality is good.
As we approach the end of the season, patch 10 will be reaching the end of its production. This will leave us with patch 11 to close out the season, which should be in approximately 2 weeks. The warm temperatures, pest activity, morning fog/mist have provided their challenges, but have been managed well with little compromise on tomato quality.

The plants are prolific and very productive.
Very warm days and nights. Daily temperatures ranged between 28°C – 31°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 18°C - 22°C.
Large volumes harvested.
Quality is good.
The new soil that we planted with this season has performed exceptionally well as the plants are prolific and very productive. Due to the warm temperatures, we are trying to keep up with the plants as they produce larger volumes of premium quality Romas. This has seen some of the Romas in our pack out be slightly mature in colour, but still showing healthy firmness. We forecast to remain in production for another 3-4 weeks.

We have just completed planting out the last green houses.
Cloudy days with consistent showers later in the week. Daily temperatures ranged between 12°C – 24°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 2°C - 10°C.
Currently, we are not harvesting.

We have just completed planting out the last green houses for the early part of the season. Our latest assessment on the earlier plantings is that the hydroponic plantings have come along nicely and they are 2-3 weeks away from their first harvest. The soil plantings are slightly behind, but we anticipate to still be harvesting on time.

Patches 10 and 11 are doing well.
Sunny and clear days with warm temperatures. Daily temperatures ranged between 28°C – 31°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 19°C - 21°C.
Good volumes harvested.
Quality is good.
Patches 10 and 11 are doing well. Plant health and tomato quality are ideal and we are prioritising maintenance as we are receiving warm daily and overnight temperatures, but heavy dew in the mornings. With patch 9 having reached its final pick we forecast harvest volumes to ease off.

We continue to harvest consistent volumes of large Romas.
Sunny and clear days with warm temperatures. Daily temperatures ranged between 28°C – 31°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 19°C - 21°C.
Good volumes harvested.
Quality is good.
We continue to harvest consistent volumes of large Romas as the persistent warm temperatures are helping with plant productivity and therefore a faster ripening process. As mentioned last week, if the current temperatures remain, we will most likely be ending our season sooner than expected.
