A few of us have participated in a contest like this on Big Pumpkins and it has been a lot of fun.
They've changed their format a bit so we've decided to run our own competition with the old format.
Growers will be picked at random so new growers will be paired with veteran growers and an intermediate grower.
With comradery and support from your team members it should be beneficial to everybody, but especially to the new growers. We have great, knowledgeable growers in our club that would love to help new growers advance.
If you don't want to email me you can sign up on this post.
Post your name and personal best tomato here and your in.
Greetings to all, I am Giustino Ferraris and I am an Italian grower. For some years now I have also been working with tomatoes and my record is 5 Lbs. Too bad, I was unable to register for the 2021 contest, I wish all participants to have fun. Good cultivation!
Send me an email Pat firstname.lastname@example.org
Lots of time Pat. I just started some this week and will do more next week and the week after.
Nope. Have a few others. Give me a couple days to make a plan lol
Is it too late to jump in?
Here are the teams for the tomato contest. Good luck everybody
OK we've got 30 people now and entry is closed. If you still want to get in you'll have to talk 2 more into entering to keep the teams even.
We're at 26 now. We'll go over 30 if we get the chance lol
OK thanks Glenn
Hi Zeke, sign me up. Looks like I'll have some time on my hands this spring to get things started. PB was around 2 lbs.
Remember everybody this is a free contest!
Our goal is 30 people to make 10 teams. We're still short by 11
Thanks Simon, your in
I would like to sign up to participate in the GVGO Tomato contest. I only have a 4-H personal best, no weigh-off personal best.
Sounds like fun, hope i can get something weighed at lest.
Noah De Visser, personal best=non-existent.
I'll join in! I've never grown a giant tomato, but I'm willing to give it a try.
OK I've got all 3 of you. Thanks for entering
Okay, I think I will enter, but I will only be able to have one official weight, and one unofficial weight weighed, is that okay? Also, how do I enter?
