Tell us your story:

About 3 Yrs ago, we started gardening with our daughters. We enjoy starting our own seeds from the produce we have collected them from. We plant our garden on monthers day each year. Every year we also try some new veggie. We've have lemon cucumbers, watermelon radishes, kale, broccoli rabe, just to name a few.
The veggies rarely make it to the table! But when they do we all cook them together. I don't think a snow pea not been eatten straight from the garden yet!
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your family is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
