Tell us your story:

No till gardening was the articles phrase that caught my eye. My children were only eating canned vegetables-usually just corn or green beans-and I knew our menu could improve. So to change our vegetable habits, 2 years ago we built a garden bed and planted tomatoes and basil. This year we had tomatoes, okra, carrots, green beans, eggplant, summer squash, onions, and herbs. It is so fun to shop for seeds together and plan(t) our garden. Everyone now has a healthier approach to our meals!
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!
