Steve Guthrie of W. Hitchcock Rd. Salem was eagerly waiting the 8:30 opening of Washington County Farmers’ Market, not because he wanted to buy sweet corn or green beans before they sold out, but because he had a record-breaking tomato. His ‘goat bag’ did in fact beat Jack Sullivan’s 2.60 lbs by 0.22 lbs and won him a $5.00 bonus to the market. It was a good thing for him that he was early, for his record didn’t hold but about twenty minutes when Levi Hall of S. Martinsburg Rd. Salem put his ‘pineapple tomato” on the scales at 3.08 lbs. He also received the $5.00 record breaker market buck to spend at the market. Previous record holder June Voyles backed up her reputation with two more ‘big’ tomatoes, just was not as big as Levi’s, however all four of the previous record holders claim they have larger tomatoes on the vine. Challenge is heating up.
