Four Year Anniversary Giveaway
It's four years today since I wrote my first post on this blog, so it's a little over four years since I took on my allotment. I'm using a four year crop rotation system on the plot, so this will be the last year of that rotation and I'll be right back to the start again next year.
It's become a custom for me to host a giveaway on my blog anniversaries, and this time I'm offering a set of Val Bourne's Ten Minute Gardener's Growing Diaries. There's three different guides, vegetables, fruit and flowers. I have these books myself and I find them very useful. They're great for dipping in and out of, and they provide lots of helpful hints and tips.It's especially helpful that they're split in to months, so you know what you should be doing when.
If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning the set of three books, just leave a comment on this post by midnight on Sunday the 7th of April, and I shall pick a winner at random next week.
Unfortunately, there's only one prize, but I'd like to thank each and every one of my readers and followers for visiting my blog and leaving comments, I'm still always thrilled when a comment is left for me to read. I hope you enjoy what you read here and that you'll continue to visit my blog in the future.
It's been a much nicer Easter, weather wise, than I was expecting, though no gardening has been done yet. I've been a little busy with other things over the last few days, but I'm hoping to get some seeds sown later on today.
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.
