That's right... there is a contest for haiku about tomatoes. The Hot Tomato Haiku Contest is part of Nashville's Tomato Art Fest. You can enter up to 10 haiku (for free), and winners will be chosen in five different categories -- some serious, some humorous. The winner in each category will get a gift certificate to a Nashville store. One grand prize winner will be chosen for the whole contest, and that person will receive an iPad.
If you've got some tomato haiku laying around (and really, who doesn't?) email them in by July 31st for a shot at the iPad. Winners will also be invited to read their haiku on stage at the festival.
