Since I’m finally getting around to starting my tomato seeds, I thought it might be fun to see if some people wanted to do a biggest tomato contest this year. Since we have people from all over the place here, the contest would end at the end of the year.
Here’s the rules:
#1 - Any tomato entered must weigh at least 1 lb. I’d rather not have this thread flooded with pictures of a bajillion 12 ouncers.
#2 - Any tomato is fair game. It doesn’t matter if it’s a hybrid or heirloom, single fruit or megablossom, etc.
#3 - It has to be edible. If you’re the competition guy that pumps so many chemicals into your irrigation system that no sane person would ever eat anything from that bed, there’s a contest for you somewhere, but it’s not this one.
#4 - Please provide a picture of the tomato on whatever scale you usually use to weigh produce along with the variety name.
#5 - It doesn’t matter how many plants you are growing. If you’re the guy/gal with a thousand tomato plants, more power to you.
To the winner go the spoils:
#1 - Bragging rights
#2 - A sense of fulfillment
#3 - The enjoyment that comes with friendly competition (consider this everyone’s participation trophy)
The winner will be announced early January 2021. Good luck everyone!
