Great Long Island Tomato Challenge 2012
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and you might be featured in Newsday.
