August 31, 2010- My big fat tomato

Hello faithful reader.

Back in the spring, a company from Ontario advertised a tomatoe plant that would grow 6-8 feet and produce 3 pound fruits.
So....... i bought a package. Three pre packed peat pots arrived and i started two of them. About 5-6 plants grew, and as they matured a bit transplanted them to various mediums, outdoor pots, the veggie garden etc.
None have grown to claim, one is 4' and a bit with average size fruits and one made it to 2 1/2 feet, planted in the veggie garden and has the biggest fruit. Not sure of the weight, but it measures 15" circumference. Looks big anyway.
None have ripened and i'm afraid they may not as fall is approaching and all of my regular tomatos are ripening.

The three peat packs were $15.00 and the shipping was $14.00. What a rip that was, but i figured as much.

Anyway, here is a picture of the big fruit.

Thanks for listening
