The later plantings are looking promising.
Mostly sunny days with warmer temperatures earlier in the week. Daily temperatures ranged between 23°C – 35°C. Overnight temperatures ranged between 9°C - 19°C.
Currently, we are not harvesting.
As we monitor the earlier plantings we can see that we experienced a challenging start to the season, particularly with respect to the fluctuating weather conditions that we received. These earlier plantings have remained unpicked for longer than we had anticipated, which has caused some of the tomatoes to have a compromised shape. The later plantings are looking promising as they have not been exposed to large amounts of stress which will in turn give us larger harvest volumes and better quality.
