In celebration of our Summer Color week, we invite you to tweet us your favorite garden-to-table ingredient—anything from a sprig of rosemary from the garden to summer's first tomato. The winner?
We randomly selected a tweet to win our contest; congratulations to @cjglondon with the winning tweet: "a sprig of fennel for freshness in soups, tabbouleh, with meat and fish."
Here's how to win:
- Follow Gardenista on Twitter.
- Tweet @gardenista a message about your favorite cooking ingredient from the garden and how you use it in a favorite recipe.
- Be sure to send us the tweet by Monday, June 11th, at 6pm PST; we will randomly select the winner, to be announced here on Tuesday, June 12th.
