Why Can'T I Grow Ripe Juicy Tomatoes - Poem by James McLain

Why do her tomatoes crack open just before getting ripe?
I think of them like stretch marks.
The skin needs to expand at the same rate as the meat inside.
When your tomatoe
goes through a short dry spell or an excessively wet spell
or are given too much of certain kinds of fertilizer
the inside meat will out grow the skin and it will as I watch it split.
