Nah, but first time I've seen that though. Although, that same tomato plant did kill another tomato plant that was growing next to it. None of my other tomato plants are growing any "double tomatoes" like that, just that one plant and tomato. So I have no idea why it's happened.

I didn't actually plant that particular tomato plant, it grew wildly (probably from some seeds I planted last year is my guess), and it is one of the best one's I've grown this year - although another one has overtaken it and is much taller than it but.

I grew up on a farm. My Daddy always had tomatoes in his garden.

That's a little unusual, but not at all unprecedented.

It's fairly typical for a tomato, especially the beefeater type.

Try growing squash or gourds and you'll see that, that tomato isn't so weird.

Lots of plants produce occasional twinned fruits. Some probably have a genetic propensity to do so. Have you never seen twin nuts in a single shell?

A lime, a lemon, and a pea walked into a bar...
The lime ordered a beer, the lemon got some tequila, and the pea got a diet coke. The lime and lemon watched pea order, and eventually tried to ignore their sense of disgust at a diet coke. They listen to the music being played, drink up their drinks, and eventually get off the stools and pay. As they head out, they see a giant hill over yonder. Lime points it out and says, "ten dollars if you climb to the top first". Lemon and pea, being good sports, agree and each put 10 dollars in. They race up the hill as fast as they can and Lime wins. Lemon and pea are mad, but don't care enough and pay up. They look down and Pea, being the youngest, says, "yknow, as a kid I'd roll down these types of hills", and being the drunk two friends Lemon and Lime were, they immediately went down. First Lemon, then Lime, then Pea. Finally, as Pea rolled down, Lemon vomited in a nearby trash bin. Pea was jumping up and down and yelling "another! Another!", but Lime grabbed his shoulder and said:


"Easy peasy, Lemon's queasy"
If you're against eating fish that in turn could feed those matoes, grow em aquaponically with Spirulina instead?

Well, so much for that tomato plant - it's well and truly had it...

Don't feel bad . I am dreading going into my motorcycle shop and cleaning up all the exploded coke cans.
9F this morning.

I left 2 litre diet cokes out and a case of cans.
Wife is afeared I'll break my neck. Slippery.

My other plants are still alive, but one of them has grown taller that the pole I've tied it to.

I wanted to grow some corn again, but the rats just eat the corn cobs - nearly every single cob the bastards ate last year. They ate my neighbor's fruit on their plants too from what I overheard them saying.

Get yourself a Jack Russell terrier. They are the world's best ratters.
