There were about two dozen entries in the tomato beauty pageant - and - well - everyone who entered was a winner. Chef Chris Deitz, the South Perry Blog and two community volunteers judged three other categories: size (the smallest one won) - ugliness (it was pretty ugly) and taste (a classic, dark, striped sun warm specimen won). But it was the kids who stole the show.
