Introducing the three finalists competing from cities, towns and homesteads throughout the United States.
Contestants will compete in six growing challenges designed to test their gardening bonafides.
Four of the competitions will be judged by objective measures (heaviest tomato, heaviest squash, heaviest sweet potato and hottest pepper), while two will be determined by voting on social media (most beautiful flower arrangement and best organic gardening hack).
Contestants who submit all required content and complete each of the competitions will receive $1,000 cash. The overall winner will have their choice of five grand prize options.
