Finally, my friends—it's here.
The day we've all been awaiting.
The day that kept us going through those dreary, chilly winter days...
SPRING! Tra la!
To celebrate the happiest of days...
* I'm giving away a “Spring into Spring” gift to one lucky, randomly selected reader!*
Look! Books! Plants! Seeds! And a tub!
The lucky winner will receive:
The Heirloom Tomato: From Garden to Table
by Amy Goldman. This is a seriously gorgeous book, filled with stunning photography, amazing history, and recipes, too! It was the first book I bought when I began my heirloom adventure. (You'll get a new copy—not mine!)
Grow Great Grub: Organic Food from Small Spaces
by Gayla Trail. This is a great how-to book. It's the perfect book for those who are land-challenged. Don't have a big backyard? No worries, you can grow a great harvest in containers! I like it, because even though we do have a yard, I still enjoy growing in containers on the balcony.
OK, maybe I'm lazy, but it's so nice to open a door, pick some herbs, and keep cooking dinner.
Plus—you get recipes! And instructions to preserve your harvest! You'll really like this book.
I'm also sending the winner some seeds from my favorite sources:
Baker's Creek Heirloom Seeds
Seed Savers Exchange
. Honestly, if you haven't visited these sites yet—please do. You will be amazed at the wonderful selections you'll find. (Plus, they're just really good people.)
Plus—who doesn't need a garden tub? I love these little tubs—they're great for collecting weeds, mixing soil with amendments, and carrying compostables to the bin.
And finally—the winner will receive six, organic heirloom tomatoes from
! (Yes, that's me!) The plants still need some more greenhouse time, but look at these roots, my friends! This is why I use organic, OMRI certified Dot Pots. When you plant these babies, you plant the entire pot—and the roots aren't disturbed. The winner can select six plants from the Garden Delights site, and I'll send you the secret code so that they will be FREE.
BUT—that's not all!
Everyone is a winner on the first day of spring!

Happy spring to you!!!
