The Contest Arrives!
If you've been reading my blog entries, you may already know about my love for the Mathers and this amazing gardening book. I really can't say enough about this book. So that's why I'm giving my readers a chance to win a copy of their very own!!!
I had struggled in the past to find a complete gardening book that addressed a few things that I consider relevant. For example, gardening in MY zone...not how to grow ornamental grasses in Victoria BC. Also, I had difficulties finding a gardening book that didn't speak in scientific terms rather than plain old english. If you are a novice gardener or if you consider yourself an expert...this book can still shed some light on things.
It features: how to capture rain water and use it in your garden efficiently, a little history and how-to on root cellars or storing food without using ANY hydro electricity, it discusses gardening in an urban environment as well as living off the grid in the country, how to read a seed catalogue, it offers a variety of vegetables that can be grown right here in Ontario, and a lot of humour along the way.
The best part about this book is that Cam and Michelle Mather have been there and done that. Whatever the issue may be, they have the experience and expertise to back up their information. If they don't know about it, they probably have a neighbour who does! They really do revel in the community aspects of gardening, sharing your information and your crops. They even include some recipes!
So here's the catch....in order to win your very own copy of this amazing gardening book...all you have to do is answer the following question in the comments section of this post. I will contact you about your mailing information if you are the lucky winner!
"What is your funniest gardening story?"
It could be something that happened whilst gardening, something unexpected that happened with a crop, something you learned and made you laugh. Use your imagination and it just may pay off!
