We harvested the first two Sun Gold tomatoes on Thursday the 18th. Is that “late” or “early” or “neither”?
Fortunately we have a non-memory dependent answer. We’ve been keeping a spreadsheet of the harvests since we started gardening in 2013. Here’s what it says:

What is late is the Tromboncino. Most years we would have already harvested a few. As of right now there is one fruit of any size on the vines and none have been harvested.
The Fortex beans are rocking though — over three days and two harvests we pulled almost a pound off of the plants:
Today will be a day to start “cleaning up” the bottoms of the tomato plants. At least that way we’ll be able to see new fruit easily.
