Help us celebrate the first day of spring (it's tomorrow—mark your calendar) and with it, the return of fresh salads and herb-infused cocktails and vegetables that really taste like vegetables because they came straight from your garden. To kick off the season, we're sponsoring a series of giveaway contests featuring prizes from Williams-Sonoma Agrarian's new spring catalog.
To kick off a month of contests, this week we'll be giving away a Galvanized Trug made of corrosion-resistant metal and a set of five Oak Garden Markers, two edible gardening essentials for a potager.
Here's how to enter:
