We have winners for our Digging Deep Book Party! First, thank you to all who entered — I read every comment and was very moved by how you all find hope and healing in the garden. It’s a tremendous resource for every part of our lives that goes so far beyond simply being a “hobby” — I know I’m preaching to the choir here. I am thankful that your gardens have been such deep sources of joy and peace in your lives.
So, the lucky gardeners who won our giveaway are Laura Flanders (her blog is Colorado Backyard Gardener) and Diane Hartman (her blog is Food Allergy Kitchen) — congratulations to you both! Laura won the Nature Innovations containers and Diane won the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds & Authentic Haven Brand compost tea bags.
I know we all love giveaways and garden prizes — hell, anything free is great, right? Seriously, we love doing fun things like this, and we thank you all for participating — that makes it even more fun. I am honored to be a part of celebrating Fran Sorin’s re-release of her incredible book — I hope you all go and get a copy for yourselves. It’s been my before-bed reading for the last couple of weeks, and I can tell you that Fran is a beautiful writer and intuitively “gets” the profound role that gardens and plants play in our lives. Thank you, Fran — for being Fran and for guiding all of us in this journey.
