They look real good Tim.
I grow quite a few heirlooms, but I always have Park Seed Company Whoppers in my garden. It is a wonderful tomato.
I'm way behind you, but here is a photo of one of my whopper plants taken a few days ago.

Anyone grown these before? This is the first I've grown them, I hope they taste as good as they look!

My first ripe of the season! Of course, it's a Sungold.

Default Muchos Muchachas

Here's a shot of some Muchacha trusses looking down into the plant. You will notice significant hail damage on the leaves but this hasn't hampered the exuberant fruiting on this gem of a plant. I am becoming a Muchacha aficionado.
