Sometimes in the midst of the summer farm and garden abundance, it's hard to remember to plan ahead for the fall and winter months. A little planning now can help you make that abundance last long into the winter--so we're having a contest to tell us what fall and winter crops you're growing this year!

Lately many people have been using the website Pinterest to organize their garden ideas and wishes. We think this is an excellent idea as it provides a great visual representation of what you'd like to grow. The boards people create are beautiful to look at and fun to use.

We would love to see what YOUR dream fall/winter garden looks like. We're inviting you to create your dream fall garden by "pinning" varieties you'd like to grow onto a board, then sending us the link to your board. We'll randomly choose three winning boards, and the owners of the winning boards will receive a Winter Garden Collection of seeds to help make those garden dreams come true!

Check out our past winter growing articles to get some ideas for your board!

The rules are simple:

  • Create your own board called "Winter Garden from High Mowing Organic Seeds". Pin vegetable varieties you'd like to grow this fall/winter. You can pin varieties from our High Mowing Organic Seeds website or any other site.
  • Come back to this post and leave us your Pinterest "Winter Garden" Board URL in the comments section below. Make sure to use your real e-mail so we can contact you if you win!

Enter by 4pm, Friday, September 5th 2014 for your chance to win the Winter Garden Collection! The winner will be announced on Monday, September 8th.

Contest closes at 4pm (EST) on September 5th, 2014.  The fine print: High Mowing Organic Seeds is giving away 3 Winter Garden Collections (a $13.75 value) to three lucky winners!
