We asked you to show us what you've been growing summer. Suffice it to say, your thumbs all must be an unbelievably bright shiny green. Picking our favorite harvest photos inspired several spirited debates. This month's submissions include:
  • A crop of bright orange pumpkins and a bright orange chicken surveying them, from Michael F. King of Vineland, NJ.
  • Two young girls playing with "harvest dolls" (vegetables swaddled as babies), from Virginia Swartzendruber of Estacada, OR.
  • Toddlers playing peek-a-boo in a bed of creeping phlox, from Linda McHugh in Logan, IA.
  • A flowering rhubarb plant, from Phonacelle Shapel in St. Ignatius, MT.
  • A big handful of carrots, from Angela Clapp in Warsaw, NY.
