But just to raise the level of suspense a little before announcing the winner (remember I live in the woods and don't get out much), let me first tell you what's been going on around here during the last couple of days of nice weather.
Tuesday I got the whole strawberry patch cleaned up and weeded. I think it was the first time in years that I've done the whole job in one day. Lots (and lots) of bending, crawling, getting up and down to empty the weed bucket into the compost, and digging with a trowel. I'm lucky in that my back rarely bothers me, but Wednesday morning I thought my right wrist might be broken. All the trowel work, you know. No, it was nothing as serious as that, but the wrist did give me a little twinge every now and then all day. But only when I moved it. We still have to go get several bags of wood shavings from a local sawmill to use as mulch, but that finishing up part of the job is simple compared to what had to be done before the shavings can be spread.
Yesterday afternoon I did some more repotting of started seedlings. (Isn't it amazing how they keep outgrowing their little pots and seem to multiply under those lights at night?) I am waiting to get through this weekend (ice and snow supposedly coming . . . yep, kinda unbelievable, isn't it?) before putting a lot of the seedlings out under a cold frame.
Okay, I know some of you are getting really tired of not hearing what you came to hear.
Drum roll, please. Wish I had a dozen of these books to send out so each and every one of you could have a copy. But I don't so had to draw just one name. The lucky winner is . . .
Michelle, if you will go over to the Contact Me button on my right hand side bar and send me your mailing address, I'll get the book off to you asap. Thanks again to all of you who left a comment for this give-a-way.
