I gave him lots and lots of composted lamb manure once he made it in the ground. Then in mid July I started sacrificing the other tomatoes growing on the vine with him. Now Zack is benefitting from all the energy the plant has to give. I’ll keep you posted.

Shhh! Can you keep a secret? The fair is less than a week away and I am working on one gigantic tomato out there in the garden. Last Thursday its circumference was 14 ¾ inches. Its name is BIG ZACK. I don’t stand a chance for him to be RED by next Thursday, the opening day of the Fair, but I do expect him to weigh a good bit. He started out as a pup.
