Enter to Win Gardening Books!

Perhaps you've spent a good number of years perfecting your garden, and are now able to bask in the glory. Perfect soil, perfect amount of sunlight, perfect watering techniques, varieties perfectly suited to your locale, and a bountiful harvest are all yours.

Well, if you're like me, that's just not the case. I'm still working on my little deck garden, still tossing aside fails, and still searching for the perfect... anything. Yet, I still love it, and I still get to have fresh produce on hand, even when the Mississippi River rises to high levels, making it difficult to get to the store. So, I will keep working on it.

Hence, today's sweepstakes come to save the day! Here, you can enter to win some of the valuable advice offered by these authors, so you, too, can know the tips and tricks of that abundant harvest you so desire!

What luck!

Unwinning News

Alas, I am sorry to say that I will not be able to enjoy the prize I won from Underground Cellar, as reported in this post, nor will I be able to build my cloud cellar (I was really looking forward to building that collection!).

I received an email from them the other day, that said that the state of Illinois (where I live) has decided to stop allowing businesses to ship wine to residents. That stinks. Shrunk my world.

Better Homes and Gardens

Good Luck!
