Great Reading

Winner: Kitchen Herb Garden Seeds!

Wow, somehow a whole extra week went past!  Apologies, all.  I have been working and working away.

Thanks, everyone, for writing about your herb gardens.  It was really fun to read about every one of them.

So – congratulations to….

Brandi Jo!

She writes:  “It is our household’s goal to grow and preserve enough produce from our garden this year to get through (most) of the winter. Since I am a chef, it will be a fun challenge to see all the different homemade ‘convenience’ foods I can make to use later…”

Enjoy your seeds – please feel free to come back and share how you did with your garden!  And many thanks to Hometown Seeds for providing the seeds.
