16 1/2 feet of Cherry Tomatoes

Believe it or not, a fellow in the area, grew the above this summer.
Just incredible looking.  He said he has picked 1500 maters off of it
and there is another 1000 on it.  He grew it up his TV antenna in the
end.  His trick...heat off the bricks of his house and cow manure!
I want some seeds!!

Regards,

Dan

Be careful what you ask for.  I planted a cherry tomato variety called "Spoon".
 I had one plant, and it took over the whole garden.  It climbed out of its 5
foot cage and send vines about 10 to 12 feet in all directions, crowding out my
"real" tomatoes.  It was such a mess I didn't even pick most of the fruit.
But, the squirrels shure picked 'em and they buried hundreds of them all over
the garden.

Guess what my toughest weed problem is gonna be next year?

And maters are such hearty ***s anyways.  I always get a kick when driving on
the south side of Chicago.  We have these large waste treatment plants along the
highway.  Miles and miles of muck getting processed.  But you can generally find a
tomato plant growing somewhere.  Passed through and ready to go.  I wonder if the
sanitation workers pick them.  They would make ideal candidates for throwing at
politicians.

Gosh, guess I have to say Just Kidding.
