NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) A Kansas man isn't letting more than 100 years slow him down. This week Vern Isenhower celebrated his 103rd birthday. He still lives on his own in Louisburg, Kansas where he gets around pretty well, and yes, still drives his own car. But the thing Vern is known for around town is his tomatoes. He has a huge garden with 70 tomato plants, which he still tends himself. For years Vern was the local authority on horses, but now he's known in the community as the tomato man. The first day of Vern's 104th year was spent quietly in the tomato garden. He sells hundreds of pounds of tomatoes each year, and sold nearly a thousand a couple of years ago. But he admits sales have gone down just a bit. Vern's daughter says her dad is still sharp and quite the character.
