Enter The Sun's annual garden contest for 2013

If you have a garden that makes your neighbors green with envy, we want to hear about it.

The Baltimore Sun is searching for the most beautiful and creative gardens in the metropolitan area. We'll have our panel of experts select the best small, medium and large gardens. Flower gardens, shade gardens, container gardens and even water gardens will be considered, but they must be designed and tended by amateurs. Winners will be featured in The Sun and will receive a $50 gift card.

To submit your entry, send three to five photos and a 200-word description of your garden by email to homes@baltsun.com or by mail to Baltimore Sun Garden Contest, Features Dept., 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore 21278. Be sure to explain the type and size of garden, its noteworthy features and what inspired you. The deadline for submission is June 7.

    When hanging a hammock, avoid harming trees

    Our hammock has always been attached to an eye bolt screwed into a tree. When we took down the hammock this fall, we discovered the eye bolt has been completely engulfed by bark. Just swallowed up! We barely got the hammock off. How do we cut (drill?) out the eye bolt?
