WILLIAMSPORT - The Elmwood Farm community in Williamsport is producing more than new homes.
In a year that has been a challenge for gardening, Mike Hurley produced a tomato that weighed 2 pounds, 7 ounces. He said the vines grew to 6-plus feet and are now draping over and filled with more 2-pound tomatoes.
Hurley said he was given two plants in early spring by a co-worker who said they were yellow tomatoes. The plants were kept inside in early spring where they grew and grew.
Hurley said he worked the soil in the beds with dehydrated manure, humus and peat moss. He mulched with mushroom soil.
