CAPTION ONLY: GARDENER HITS THE BIG APPLE WITH BIG TOMATO

Robert Ehigh, of St. Clairsville, Ohio, boards a plane bound for New York Wednesday morning with a tomato bigger than his head, hoping it would beat the Guinness record holder, a 7-pound, 12-ouncer. Unfortunately for him, it was only 4 pounds, 4.5 ounces when it was weighed on "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee." If it had beat the bruiser in the "Guinness Book of Records," Ehigh and his wife, Lois, would have won $100,000 in Miracle-Gro's tomato challenge. However, they did win a $10,000 consolation prize.
