An Update on Big Zack

With only four more days to grow, Big Zack is doing his best. In one week he grew from a circumference of 14 3/4 inches to 16 1/4 inches.

Yesterday I fashioned a sling for him out of a dishtowel.

Carol suggested that it would be easier to be awed by Big Zack if there were something next to him that indicated relativity. So first I draped a tape measure over himand next I clipped my cell phone to his stem

Somehow this does not seem to do him justice. Big Zack is a mighty tomato with the potential to break records. If only the Fair were over Labor Day.

That is a big tomato! Perhaps I should send you my tomato throne for when you harvest Big Zack?
