Team Canuckle Heads

Just sent the latest stats to all the team captains and everybody's email that I have. If you want me to send them directly to you post your email.

58 tomatoes weighed in now for 238 lbs.
7 already over 6 lbs. including a 6.85 lb. beauty grown in a 5 gallon pot by Salad Doug! Plus 2 more that were thisclose to 6 lbs.

Rebel Rousers have made a move to the top for now but Jack still hasn't weighed his next big one. I had one of the Rousers tomatoes marked wrong so his total is going to be a couple lbs. lighter next update. Thanks go to Salad Doug's honesty for pointing it out to me.

I also see one of the cat's from across the pond has pounced. Udo Karkos weighed in with a huge 8.01 lber. I didn't know they had that many weeds over there to hide in.

Going to be an interesting week. Still pretty quiet in Cindy's and Porkchop's patch. Lots of pumpkin pics. tomatoes....not so much.

We'll see.

2 teams have made a name change since the stats went out.
7D are now the "Roma Gladiators"
and 2D are now "Team Salsa"

Good luck everybody.

Awesome job Zeke! I hope to be making those lb back later as other tomatoes come. But yes, things are going to start to get interesting and move quickly from here on in. Still coming to terms with the bucket - for a man who hates pots!
