Gardeners have shared some great insights along with stories of bountiful harvests and losses to pests. And people are busy filling vacant spots with fall vegetable seeds and plants.
David Marcovitz of Baltimore County is our pick for this period's $25 Gift Certificate to High Mowing Seeds! David entered into the New to Gardening category and we're really impressed with his garden. He's got six 4x4' raised beds with cucumbers (that he has been pickling), cherry tomatoes, green beans, herbs, and some extremely tall corn. He's got deer protection in the form of PVC pipe and netting that he says has mostly held up this season.

Thanks to the 11 gardeners still with us who sent photos in! One more two-month period is left. We are looking foward to seeing the final update materials and choosing an overal winner.
Update period 3 is over on October 15. You can find the form here.
