Giveaway Win Number 1
I've been very lucky over the last week and have won not one but two giveaways, so I thought I'd tell you about them.
The first giveaway I won was this Kitchen Garden Herb Planter from Sharon from Wigglywoo and Chickens too. Until last year, I only grew the odd herb plant, and they were mainly for the bees. I've never used many herbs in cooking. Last year, I decided that I'd quite like to add to my herb collection, so I bought a few more plants, parsley, marjoram, mint, sage and thyme. You can read about it on my Inspired post from May last year.
Since adding to my collection, I've been a bit more adventurous in using herbs in cooking, so this giveaway prize is very welcome. It means I'll now be able to grow some herbs on my kitchen windowsill and they'll all be on hand when I want to add something to a dish. There's room in it to grow four different herbs, and it comes with seeds for basil, parsley, chives and coriander.
Thank you, Sharon, this is a very welcome prize and it's greatly appreciated.
I live in Leeds in West Yorkshire with my husband, son, daughter and Archie the dog. I'm a stay at home mum and I have many hobbies which include gardening, knitting, crochet and genealogy. The Good Life blog follows my progress on my allotment and Through The Keyhole blog follows my family life. I hope you enjoy reading and will follow my adventures with me.
