Default Abominable Tomatoman

The odd looking tomato I've been writing about for a month or so is finally ripe. The plant is growing all sorts of shapes of tomatoes. It has been fun watching that plant grow and produce. Who knows what cross it is? It is a PL plant. Both of the tomatoes come from the same plant. Almost forgot, is this the results of a fused blossom?

On the one tomato, on the bottom it looks like somebody gave it a bunch of stitches.

Odd shaped or not, they looking good. Have you tasted one yet?

I am making a chicken breast strip sandwich with

Bacon
Onion from the garden
Lettuce
The smaller tomato
and Jimmy Nordello Pepper

Thanks Karen! Cool!!!!! Another new word I learned.

Salt....Did you save any of the seeds? If so, it should be interesting to see what develops. Glad it turned out to be tasty. Liked how you made your sandwich too.
