Tomatoes as tall as trees


HAMMOND, Ill. (WCIA) — An area gardener has an unusually prolific green thumb. Mike Montgomery says his cherry tomato plant is 17-feet tall. It’s too tall for him to even pick all the tomatoes off it, even with his tallest ladder. If you don’t believe the man is talented in growing plants, his grape tomato plants are 14- and 15-feet tall as well.
