Hey, thanks to everyone who has sent in a garden photo for The Dirt's third annual garden photo contest.
This is a reminder that the deadline to enter is midnight Sunday, July 10.
How to enter:
- Send in the single best picture from your garden to firstname.lastname@example.org. The photo should be a JPEG attachment.
- Include your name, what community you call home (or just include your address) and a phone number where you can be reached during the day. Please put "garden photo" in the subject line.
- If you would like to tell a short story about how this bed came to be, why a particular plant is special or why you garden, you are welcome to do so.
- We will accept the first 100 entries, because we're trying a new voting process this year and I have to spend time posting each photo in a photo gallery.
The photos that get the most votes from readers will be featured in an August issue of The Dirt column.
If all goes well, we'll try a veggie contest a little later in the season. In that one, you'll need to have someone pose with your produce.
If your crop is coming in now, you can shoot it now, but please do not send in any zucchini shots until the garden flower contest is over.
Now take off those gloves and start shooting!
