We love hearing your stories.
Since we started blogging, people often stop us and tell us about their canning projects. Or garden projects. Or to remininse about growing up as a farm kid. We’ve heard some great tales about exploding salsa jars, escaped bovines eating corn stalks, and all the wonderful times they’ve shared with their mothers or grandmothers in the kitchen.
We want to celebrate these wonderful experiences by featuring them here at Despite Everything. Starting today, until August 1, 2012, anyone who would like to share their photos and/or stories will be featured in an upcoming post about the importance of storytelling. For your efforts, you’ll receive a really cool Tomatopalooza t-shirt, designed by us.
What we’re looking for: original photos from our readers that tell a story. Show us what you’ve been canning or growing in your garden. The best photos (in our humble opinion) show happy faces. Provide a brief description (250 words or less). Also, if you’re a writer and would like to submit a blog post for us to consider, leave us a comment below!
To get the t-shirt (while supplies last!), submit your photos and/or stories email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to identify everyone in your photo and provide us your address and phone number.
Come! Join the fun and get a Tomatopalooza t-shirt while they last!
