My mum grows fantastic tomatoes, and boy are they huge! We weighed one of them today and it weighed half a kilo! Here’s a pic:

Mum reckons you could play lawn bowls with them. LOL

Thanks all :o)

Flori, you may have heard of Glenn McGrath, a frightening Aussie fast bowler who knocked a few English heads off during his career. His mum reckons the secret to big tomatoes is to put sugar in the furrow as you plant the seeds. We've never used that method - I must try it one day!
