2006 Tomato Contest


I won, I won!

This is the first time that I have ever won anything, lowers head and blushes, and I will cherish this award forever. Thank you Dr. Charles for sponsoring the contest and thank you judges for choosing my tomatoes as the largest (and, no I don't have very small hands).*LOL* Also congratulations to all the other contest winners and I am looking forward to next years contest. Blushes again while everyone applauds and I receive a standing ovation.

I am so proud. How about a picture? And what becomes of the tomato afterwards - a nice spaghetti sauce? Salsa? or drizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with fresh basil. Great, I've just made myself hungry......
