1 pound 7.5 ounce Tomato that I raised in my garden this year. A slice of this tomato will hang over all four sides of a slice of bread...Mmmm
I have one that is still green that is going to be bigger than this one, I believe.

If y'all got a big tomato from your garden, post it here. Let's see them big ol maters!!

Here is a pic of the other big tomato in my garden that is still on the vine and green. That is my hand in the pic and I am no small fella, 6' tall, 240 lbs and I have large hands...I think this tomato is larger than the one in the pic I posted above.

LOL...It has something to do with prayer, around 1,500 pounds of compost manure, 800 pounds of top soil, 1,200 pounds of organic humous, and 2,000 pounds of sand in a 25 ft X 25 ft. square red clay garden space...
