    Wow, thank you very much! I didn’t expect to win at all. :-)

    I can’t find your email address on the site, so I’m using the contact form instead. (I…actually thought you were going to email the winner, whoops. I almost accidentally forfeited.)

    Thank you again! And please thank Joni (and everyone) at Hometown Seeds for me, too. I’m really looking forward to growing these seeds in my garden in the spring. :-)
