The Greenest Thumb Contest is not necessarily about the lushest plantings or the most idyllic water feature. This small patch of green (for instance) is two stories up off the street and accessible to its tender via only a window. Every time we see it we feel seriously happy. We imagine its tender to be creative, resourceful, and determined.
Know someone who exemplifies one or more of those adjectives and has the garden (or window box or flower bed, etc.) to show for it? Or have you yourself planted the garden of your dreams and want to share it? If your verdant Shangri-La is no smaller than a window box and no larger than 600 sqare feet, enter it in the Greenest Thumb Contest. The winner gets a gift certificate from a local nursery.
Send up to three pics along with your name, location, and up to 200 words descriing your inspirations, tips, or resources. Emails should have "CONTEST" in the subject line and go to sf (at) apartmenttherapy (dot) com.
The deadline (which we moved back) is Monday, June 12!
