We have a winner!
The sixth annual Great Long Island Tomato Challenge was held with much fanfare Aug. 24, with gardeners from all around Long Island gathering in Newsday's Melville auditorium to spend a couple hours sharing jokes and growing secrets, exchanging seeds, tomatoes and phone numbers, and — above all — competing for the title of Long Island Tomato King or Queen.
