Woo - Hoo, I Won!

I was so excited when Fern at Life on the Balcony contacted me earlier this week and told me I had won her October contest for guessing how many cilantro seeds she had collected. You can see the picture of the actual seeds in my post from last Friday which also included my guess of 98. Well, I was only off by 2 - the actual number being 96.

The excitement of winning continued when my wonderful prizes arrived.
First was the book "Big Ideas for Small Gardens" by Emily Young and Dave Egbert.

Second was a $10 gift certificate to Renee's Garden where I can buy all sorts of cool heirloom seeds for next year!

Thanks so much Fern, I really enjoyed your contest!

Fern's going to be running a contest every month for the next several months, so be sure to keep an eye on her site. You might be the next winner. And even if you aren't, she always has great tips for small space / balcony gardening. This is a great site even if you have a large space, for what is a large space but a collection of smaller spaces.

Congratulations! We bought that same book when we heard the author speak here at the garden show a few years ago. Great ideas that are easy to implement. Have fun with it!

Thank you everyone for your congratulations. I am really looking forward to picking out some seeds. Probably in a couple weeks when we have the garden all tucked in for the winter. I'll be letting you all know what I decide on :)
