Introducing the Winners of our Second Annual County Fair!By Melody Rose (melody)
October 22, 2011
The time honored traditions of harvest festivals and fairs are alive and well in the 21st Century. Dave's Garden has taken this a step further, hosting the virtual County Fair. Members from around the world and all walks of life come together each year to celebrate another growing season. The 'Best of the Garden' did not disappoint and the entries this year were wonderful! Winners received a one year subscription to Dave's Garden and a virtual blue ribbon for their profile page. Members from all over shared the best of their harvest, crafts and landscapes. Please join us as we honor the winners and runners-up. By clicking on the winning image, the full-sized image will be viewable, along with the second place, third place and runners up. The winning recipe is posted and the link to the Cooking Forum will take readers to the runners up.
