  6. Nice tom! What kind was that? Some of our Beefmasters would get big, but I don’t think they were ever that big.

    • I’m fairly sure this was an Oxheart tomato seed that I got from the folks at WinterSown.org, although the description only promised tomatoes “up to a pound.” The plant was growing so close and so intertwined that it is also possible it could have been a Celebrity or an Ace 55. I’m saving seeds from all 3 of those for next year.
