I have worked out most of the details for The Great Garden Giveaway which is set to take place in a little over 2 months from now. This will allow us time to tell all our garden friends, family and co-workers. It will also give us time to decide on the gift we plan to give away! Running the event for 2 weeks ending on Earth Day (when we will announce our winner) works well since once the gardening season is in full swing most of us will be outdoors digging in the dirt!
Make sure to check out the details and the About page and send a tweet if you use Twitter announcing the event. There is a subscribe box you can sign up to receive updates when a new post is added to the blog so make sure to do that. If anyone has suggestions, don’t hesitate to share them with me.
I have also signed up to participate in another fun project sponsored by Renee’s Garden. Project GROW is a communal seed project for garden bloggers across the US. We will receive Nasturtium “Spitfire” seeds from Renee’s to plant and we report monthly on our blogs on the growing progress. Check out the link GROW if you are interested and make sure to watch my blog here to see my Nasturtium flower seeds grow!
One more fun garden activity …. One Seed Chicago which is another neat project. This one is limited to folks in the Chicagoland area and we can vote on our favorite seed between 3 choices….Bee balm, Nodding Onion and Purple Coneflower. Once the votes are tallied and the winner determined, all the participants will receive the winning seed to plant in their gardens!
Now if the snow would stop falling and the temperature turn upward to about 70 degrees I would be one happy gardener!!!
