I definitely have, Gene. Belly fat gone and have lost about 10 pounds. My blood pressure was already good but my digestion seems improved and I sleep better. My lower back feels better too. Mentally, it’s been a big boon given the pandemic.
And....it doesn't hurt that you have a beautiful lake to look at while you walk.

Update: Today was the 152nd day in a row I’ve done my hour long anti-Covid walk. I’m up to 502 miles. I’m theoretically gonna continue until we have a vaccine, but not sure how I’ll manage the coming winter!

I'm serious. If you want to take off weight, an hour of snowshoeing is a real calorie burner. One of the best things about it is that you can meander off into the woods anywhere you want without worrying about getting lost.

This may look just like any other red tomato variety (solid red one at the top), but I assure you, it would blow your mind.
They've ripened on the vine in the last month and 😋 😋 😋 😋 .
One of my absolute favorite tomatoes I've grown for years; with an interesting historical story behind it.
The other 'maters are-Jaune Flamme, Ceylon, Black Cherry, Lime Green Salad and Dragons' Eye.

*the following is an excerpt from Laurel Garza's web page on this amazing home grown 'mater...

This delectable historical family heirloom is one of the rarest plants we offer and our top seller. The flavor and color run deep in Goose Creek, a stunning, deep dark reddish-pink fruit, I call it scarlet or garnet, round or slightly flattened, sometimes lobed, with occasional tiny gold streaks and speckling.

Juicy, very sweet and intensely tomatoey as if injected with concentrated tomato flavor Goose Creek reaches 6 to 12 ounces. Ambrosial with a luxurious, silken texture, a lingering touch of sweetness and rich, earthy sweet flavors, it produces high fruit yields and very few seeds.

This family treasure comes to us from my sweet old friend and edible landscape expert, Jimmy Williams, author of the top selling gardening book, 'From Seed to Skillet', owner of HayGround Organic Gardening in California and recently featured on CBS News, Jimmy and his Native Island Gullah-Geechee forebears are descendants of slaves brought in bondage from The Caribbean to the coastal islands of the Southern United States to grow rice for plantation owners.

The Gullah are still keepers of a fascinating culture of food, language and beloved traditions--a most extraordinary and delightful people.

The seeds of this sublime fruit have been passed down through generations when Jimmy's great-great grandmother, a young Caribbean slave, smuggled them with her aboard ship. When the ship docked at Charleston near Goose Creek, South Carolina, she had the treasured seeds with her, hidden in her skirt pocket and planted them that first spring. Jimmy's grandma, Elouise Watson, shared this precious heirloom with him more than 50 years ago when he was a young man, assuring Goose Creek's place in his family's garden for generations to come.

Along with being very heat tolerant, it shows remarkable cold-tolerance along the cooler coastal areas where the fruits continue to set and ripen through November and December. It is a wonderful choice for growing in containers and does extremely well in the greenhouse.

I don't have the varieties you have, but my tomatoes are doing well on the south facing wall under the kitchen windows. But they are all ripening en masse!

Looks great D., tell me about the soil setup?
And what are those, maybe some San Mazano types on the left?
I got them from my neighbour so I've had to ask him which varieties they are.

They are in growbags (peat free soil in a bag!) they are incredibly common in the UK, every garden centre stocks them. You do have to remember to water them quite often as they do tend to dry out in the heat.

I grew some cucumbers in a few growbags a couple of years ago, I was so successful growing them that after about the 4th 'batch' all the neighbours hid when I tried to give them away!

We can a lot of our tomatoes (after pureeing), along with green beans, and other garden produce that we can't possibly eat as fast as it ripens.

It's kind of old school.

Yep feast or famine here as well. The tomatoes are ending up in all sorts of dishes, a load of the Plum tomatoes will end up in tonight's curry!

Last night, my book group decided enough was enough and we had a Zoom conference to discuss whatever we have been reading during lock down. One guy fell asleep while it was going on but had failed to mute his device. Consequently, we were all entertained by a continuous view of his ceiling along with a serenade of snoring....classic...

I stream it through my ROKU (Disney+) plugged into the back of my oppo's HDMI in.
I think I can get slightly cheaper if I upgrade my Sky subscription to the 4k Sky Q package (which has a 2TB HDD). I just have the 'normal' Sky HD but I have a 4k TV so I ought to make use of it!
