Is there a deadline on this? I have one that is still green and growing. It is small though.

I cry foul. Can't throw someone.. especially a friend, under the bus for last place, without pics from the grower. There is honor in that spot. You gotta own in G. Wear it proudly. I have a pic to post and a green one still in the bucket. I may be doing battle with Marv for that spot.

Ok you're right... she did not officially sign up. I mentioned her possibly entering way back here. My bad. Either way it's clearly a poor result... "lots of room for improvement" is the nicest thing I can say about my lowly tomato shame... lol.

My friend also has a nice one started in 5 gal. If she enters then whoever wins will have to beat over 50 other growers! Good luck all.

Brandon can relax, all the people who signed up and haven't weighed one yet are in last place, including me. I've got some candidates with potential on the vine that have made it past the BER stage so hopefully will climb out of last place at some point.

Relax? I don't know the meaning of that word.
