A Giveaway

I've been on the receiving end of such nice giveaways lately that I thought it was time to add to someone else's joy.

So........I'm offering you a choice of two books.

The first one is Organic Gardening, an essential guide to natural gardening. By Christine and Michael Lavelle.

I like this book. For vegetables it offers information on soil and aspect, propagation, harvesting and storage and culinary uses. Nice. There's a lot of info in this mid sized book.






Next is something I consider essential. A blank book.





Just waiting for your deepest thoughts and pearls of wisdom.

Well, whatever. I've kept a garden journal since June 11, 2000. Wish I'd started sooner. If you keep a garden journal you know how valuable and entertaining they can be. (Especially in the winter months). If you've never had one, well, it's time to start.

So, just leave a comment and tell me which book you'd prefer.

I'll draw names July 17th.

I'd love to have a look at that Organic Gardening book! This is the first year that I haven't put any Miracle Grow on my veggie garden... or any of my flowers for that matter! I'm so proud :)

Kim and Victoria,

Guess Meg would not want the organic gardening book as she started an organic farm 28 years ago and might be considered a pioneer in the field, surely she would scoff at me for saying that. But the journal would be wonderful.

I have several Organic gardening books, but have never seen that one, so it looks interesting. One can always learn something new.

Sigh, I am getting a url error so my wonderful pertinent long comment is gone.

I'm taking myself out of the running for either, not because they aren't wonderful, but because I just want to say what a fabulous thing to be doing, to just "give away" things! I might have to follow suit real soon!

I will have to catch up on mine in the winter! I was doing great on it until I started blogging! So when Winter rolls around I will be busy! I would take either one! So sign me up
