Let’s go off today’s measurements...”Wilson“. could be green for a couple more days...could flash tomrw...same with “frank the tank”...then 2-3 days and pick?...maybe 4?...the 2 closest guesses wins a super pack of monster mater seeds that I’ll send out over the winter ...you can also win the 5.71 lambchop,my personal favorite seed...good luck.!!!...I guess frank-6.08....Wilson 10.02

wow, you are cruel porkchop..giving me these numbers...my fried calculator, I gave it some special pain reliever., comes up with 3x measurements x .00047 for a total of 9.56. I hope woody has things in place. From this point..it really comes down to mfactor...hope you have a really big m porkchop. Remember the rules..you have to tell us all how you did it.

I don't know porkchop..on your 30 1/2 measurement you are catching an air gap both top and bottom. I still think best estimate would be measuring it as two tomatoes..estimating the numbers you cant physically measure. Without a doubt it is going to have a big weight. Can it break 9.44...i have my doubts.

9/16/2019 6:13:27 PM

9/16/2019 6:29:04 PM

I know it is huge...but is it huge enough. I hope I am wrong. Tomato growing would benefit from it being over. I have no doubt..you are going get pb. WR is the next step. You just might make it.

porkchop....I would love you to prove my gut feeling wrong. You holding the WR would be so beneficial. Hoping for the best...but you have a lot of air gaps to overcome. It is a ride...you have to deal with the pragmatics...No congrats...until it is on the scale.

Dont get down porkchop...I think you will take top weight in the GPC this year. Dan usually weighs by now. He does not seem a late season grower. I keep running the numbers. I really don't know where you will finish. WR is not out of range. What is the genetics of the momate...6.5 is way over the brutus magnum...which I have been hoping for the genes for heavy. Enjoy the ride....it is not a given yet....you have a few more days...to get to wixoms image of you stressing. Secretly...try the two 3 multipliers..and see where you are with those numbers. I know you know how the mFactor works. We are all pulling for you. You are the best hope this year of bringing the WR back to the growers.

Just out of curiosity, you could measure it as 2 separate tomatoes and add them.
That would eliminate the biggest gaps & probably get you closer to a true measurement.
That is, if you have nothing better to do...ha

9/16/2019 8:53:43 PM

Oak Grove, Mn

The big measurments of the two joined should be doable. 24 inches is right about 5 pounds +/- depending on depth. If both are measuring over 24, this is taking into account trying to measure them as individual sectons...it is time to get nervous porkchop. Two 5's joined would win Eddy's prize. The super big are hard to estimate.

Be patient and wait. Don’t measure. You know, like I never did. With all your harnesses, trying to get you fingers in their you might damage it.

I’ve only measured 3 times.....def see scratching from the tape so that’ll be it...projected to pick Thursday or Friday...I’m thinking 30.5x29.5x23”...23 because I have a 1” thick tape...that’s over and inch each way from the 8.22 so I mean....maybe?...nah... I m with bob, poo poo
