When I first started this blog I thought only my family would read it. You know, family from far that wants to know what we are up to here in Idaho. Well that didn't happen. I have an aunt in Texas (Hi Aunt Robin!) who reads. Both of our daughters read it and our moms too. But that is about it for family as far as I know. My grandparents "don't want to buy anything" and that's OK since I am not selling anything. But a huge surprise to me was that so many other people read this blog. I am thankful for all of you who stop by and for those who leave comments. I have learned so much just by starting this blog/journal. I have 'met' some amazing people and discovered a wealth of fabulous information just by reading other garden blogs and links to great stuff.
So, to celebrate the turning of 10,000 hits (I know I am a little late:-) my daughter and I thought a GiveAway would be fun! So here is the latest and greatest edition of the Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving 2009 as well as a seed planter and some great little plant markers! All you have to do is add a comment to this post and tell me what the greatest thing happening in your garden is this week. It can be flowers or veggies, in my book a garden is a garden. You don't have to be a canner to enjoy reading the Blue Book. It will make you want to preserve the harvest, guaranteed. Books like this are how I became hooked! I will add all your names in a hat on Sunday evening and draw randomly then. I will post on Monday morning who the lucky winner is! Please leave me a way to get in touch with you when you post. Email will be fine. If you aren't comfortable adding your email address to the comment, just drop me a private mail through the Contact Me link in the top right corner of my blog, Ollie the Goat is the picture to click. Good luck!
