A big one

This is a “Pineapple” heirloom tomato. I noticed it lurking behind some foliage, but I had no idea how huge it was until I picked it. It did put up some resistance, but after wrestling it to the ground, I finally managed to hoist it over my shoulder and drag it to my kitchen.

How big is it? Well just look at it next to the poor little dachshund.


And here it is next to an extra large egg.


Pretty isn’t it, with that yellow and red coloring? I am going to have to make myself a really big sandwich.

    That tomato looks dangerously large. Don’t turn your back on it.
