Tomato Growers Take the Challenge

Tomato Growers Take the Challenge

It's tomato time!

The 2012 Great Long Island Tomato Challenge will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 24 at Newsday, 235 Pinelawn Rd., Melville.

Strategize now and nurture your plants all summer long, then bring your biggest, heaviest fruit to the event, where I will weigh tomatoes and name this year’s Tomato King or Queen.

In the meantime, send a photo of yourself with your tomato plants, along with details about your techniques and the varieties you’re growing, to jessica.damiano@newsday.com and you might be featured in Newsday.
