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'm a forty eight year old mum of two and I live on the outskirts of Leeds in West Yorkshire. I've been married to Mick for twenty six years and we have a son, Daniel, who's twenty two and a daughter, Eleanor, who's eighteen. I gave up work in 2010 and now have more time to indulge in my hobbies of knitting, crochet and gardening. I hope you enjoy reading and will follow along with my adventures.
