We Have Another Giveaway!

As much as I can grumble about the shift away from summer, the truth is that I love Autumn. I'm an October baby, so really, I shouldn't be too surprised- it's in my blood, after all. One of the best things about the changing seasons is having an opportunity (excuse?) to hunker down with a good book when the weather doesn't lend itself to my being outside.

That being said: Could there be a better way to kick off the upcoming season than with a book giveaway? I think not! I'm super excited to announce that the wonderful folks at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds have generously given me a copy of their beautiful book The Heirloom Life Gardener to share with one lucky reader.

Much like their stunning catalog, the book is packed full of great information as well as some truly beautiful photos. It's definitely a lovely addition to any gardener's bookshelf, if I may say so.

About the book, from the Baker Creek website:

"The Heirloom Life Gardener is the first comprehensive guide to heirloom gardening—whether you're just starting out in your backyard or have been gardening for years.

The Heirloom Life Gardener is not just another boring how-to book based on the latest gardening trends. It is a fun-to-read book that weaves Jere's and Emilee's personal lives and life-long adventures in gardening into a resource of tried and true methods of gardening based on necessity and economythe way it is done at Baker Creek.

Both beginning gardeners and already successful gardeners will benefit from tips to help them avoid many costly mistakes. 240 pg. Colorful Hardcover. "

Still want to know more? The book was featured on NPR, too! Click here to check it out.

To enter the giveaway: Leave a comment here, or on Facebook, and tell me what you're looking forward to doing this coming Autumn and Winter, now that the gardening season is winding down. Are you a crafter? A quilter? A four-season outdoorsy person? I want to hear about it! 

The fine print: US entries only, one entry per person. Entries accepted until 11:59PM on September 23, 2014. Winner will be picked via a random-number generator. I have not been compensated for this post, aside from being given the copy of the book to giveaway, and my opinion of the book and the company remain my own.
