The Youth Garden Project is inviting the community to participate in the first annual Blue Ribbon Produce Contest.

“Start growing your record breaking produce now and come show it off at our Harvest Festival on September 21,” the Youth Garden Project said in a recent public statement.

Entries will be accepted in categories labeled classic; largest; weirdest; most anatomically correct; flower arrangement; biggest tumbleweed and longest bindweed.

There will be prizes for first place winners, best in show, and peoples’ choice.

The Youth Garden Project (YGP) said more information on the contest will be made public soon.
