Autumn is a time of harvest and gardeners the world over show off their produce, livestock and hand-made items in county fairs, harvest festivals, agricultural shows, fetes and exhibitions. We enjoy gathering together to celebrate the year’s bounty. Join us for the second annual Dave’s Garden Pixel County Fair; a Celebration of Harvest Traditions with a Virtual Twist!

Last autumn was the inaugural County Fair and everyone had so much fun, we decided to make it an annual event. Members shared their best recipes and photographs of produce and farm animals, but we had categories for the urban dweller as well. This is the only county fair where you can show off your balcony or patio, right alongside the barns and quilts.

Here's a look back at the winners from 2010 and links to the runners-up. We hope these photographs inspire you to enter this year. Winners receive a blue ribbon on their profile page and a year's subscription to Dave's Garden. This link is to the 2011 Contest Page. This link is to the Recipe Contest page. You'll need to be logged in to enter, so let us know if you need help with that. This is the link to our Helpdesk.

You have until midnight Pacific Time on September 30th, 2011 to enter your photography and recipes into the 2011 Dave's Garden Pixel County Fair. Good luck to everyone!
