    Oh, it is sooo cute…you couldn’t possibly eat something so cute?

    That is very tiny! Unbelievably tiny. But is it fair to enter so late in the year? I guess it would be fair IF I found one that was even smaller.

    Sara, I think it might just have been my tiniest of the year — I enjoyed finding it!

    Lorian, I actually haven’t eaten it yet…you’re right — it’s way too cute.

    Carol, I don’t know…it seems like as long as the growing season is still rolling (even if it’s still rolling because of inordinately weird weather), it should still be fair game! :-)

    Genny, what variety did you grow that grew so tiny? This kind is Mexico Midget, which was incredibly prolific this year.

    That sure is tiny. It may well be the only October tiniest tomato entry.

    That little cutie would be just too hard to resist popping in my mouth if I had it. Of course, I would take a photo first! Happy GTS,

    Curtis, I hope not — I know other folks have certainly been getting their tomato growing on with this weird weather.

    Aiyana, I still haven’t eaten it — it’s on my windowsill!

    If someone is going to beat you with this effort, Genie they’ll have to photograph a seed.

    Stuart, I still think Chigiy has me beat! But yeah…this one was super tiny!
