and BOOM. A new WR at 839 tomatoes on a single truss (previously 488). All needs to go thru Guinness etc, so hopefully they are happy with all the evidence and Iíve dotted the iís and crossed the tís! A HUGE thanks to Matt for coming over and painstakingly cutting, assessing and counting individual tomatoes! .
