Tomato truss... new personal best. 7 tomatoes... 9.51 lbs. This plant had other fruit on it and was also competing with two other plants. I wrote this plant off but nevertheless it performed well. I am not optimistic about getting all that weight into one tomato... but at least this shows me where I need to focus my attention. This one had a damaged stem prior to the truss and I wonder if that's part of the reason it pushed this truss so big. Might have "girdled" the phloem.

Many things to consider 4 next year... whats the optimal pruning... getting the nutrients available but not excessive... getting & picking the right blossom. This is work, lol.
