    Sheesh jack those things have grown . I am interested in the paste tomato you are trying out. I have planted 20 Roma in the garden, to see how they will do.

    The jury is still out on the Alpine San Marzano called Redorta. It is the weirdest growing tomato I have ever had. Some people call the plants vines and this certainly applies to this variety. It has already grown above the top of the support and seems to grow about a foot every two days. It is not leggy as the plant in the garden outdoors is the same way. And, it looks droopy like it is in desperate need of water, but it is not. At first, I was wondering if it was ever going to set fruit, but it is now, and it is making up for lost time as it grows. The tomatoes look like paste tomatoes so it may be worth saving seeds if they taste good.

    It looks like something straight out of Jack and the bean stalk.

    Yeah, he is here, all day, every day, from sunrise to sunset. Thanks for reminding me, I just gave him his lunch. Just open the back door and say: Simon good stuff! He is here like a brown streak of lightning.
