As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, I'm ready for butternut squash soup and pumpkin pie! What's in your fall harvest? Do you have beans, beets, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, chard, cauliflower, chicory, endive, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, onions, parsley, peas, or pumpkins -- all in season -- in your garden? Prove it! This summer we asked for your farmers market finds, and now we want to see fall harvest photos from your farmers' market, backyard garden, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), container garden, or wherever you get local fresh fruits, herbs, or vegetables. Lacking inspiration? View all our readers' photos , and today's juicy composting and vermicomposting slideshow. Click through for details. Upload Photos: The Technical Stuff: Please send only jpeg files. Photographs should be no larger than 550 pixels wide, 72 dpi (that's sized for the web), and 200 KB or smaller.
