Jim?s ?giant? secret is TLC



JIM Baldi loves his tomatoes, so much so that he tends to it every night.

Or at least that's his version of how he has grown his latest giant 1.1kg tomato.

Jim's giant tomato was grown in a tub on the veranda of his Park Beach unit.

It is the second kilo-plus tomato he has grown.

"A few years ago I got one that was 1.06kg, but this one is just a bit bigger," Jim said.

And the secret of his giant vegetable success?

"A bit of TLC and good fertiliser," Jim says with a smile.

And the fertiliser?

"Well, perhaps the odd drop of home brew," he says with a wink.

The rest, as they say, is up to you to work out!
