Can anyone offer some insight into why my potted tomato plants have grown such thick stems?  They appear otherwise healthy and green and are watered everyday and have lots of warmth and sun.  Have I over-fertilized in the first 4-6 weeks of growth?

Also, the leaves on the San Marzano plant are quite large, is that typical of the variety?

Would love some guidance!
