A gardener of extremes

From this: To this:

How's this for a tomato? After a plethora of golf ball size tomatoes from the "Early Girl" variety, my "Mr. Stripey" plant started producing these monsters. I included the drinking glass to illustrate scale. That tomato's almost 6" in diameter. One thing about heirloom tomatoes, they may not be pretty but they are delicious.

My tomatoes are all green yet...the biggest out there is probably 2 inches in diameter. It is the best tomato plant I have had in years though!! It is growing like a weed out there!
