Thanks!! it is off the 9.65. It was a late set at 4 1/2 feet. Could not get this plant to throw a mega. Finally got what looks like a 3-4 lobe fruit. Too bad this one will never show up in the GPC records. It would be the 20th heaviest tomato in the GPC records. 28" X 24.5" X 21.75". Weighed a little heavy using the Domingo formula.

Thank to all of you for your support. I could not have had this awesome year without the help and advice of several growers, Porkchop & Lambchop for their awesome seeds and advice. Thanks to Garden Rebel, Biscuit Ridge, Eddy Z for their support and advice. To Cindy Tobeck, Jim Sherwood, Chris Hamilton, Ron Barker, Brandon Clayton and Pete Caspers thank you for being there to witness and verify my entries.

As for a growers chat working on that. I wish there is one single thing that I did that I could tell everyone this is it! But that is not the case. I tried several ideas this year which ones worked and which did not is still to be determined. There is always the blind squirrel theory to be considered as well. LOL again thank you
