September giveaway



After the past couple of days' unpleasantness caused by someone not associated with me or my blog/forum, let's get back to normal, and here, for your delectation, is the September giveaway! Bit of a quickie this month, as time is getting on, but it's here nevertheless.:)
The book is "Gardening when it counts - growing food in hard times" by Steve Solomon; it's a Mother Earth book for Wiser Living. There's a huge amount of information on vegetable growing, it's a lovely book, an easy read covering a wide range of aspects of growing.
I've popped in four packets of my own seeds as well - pot marigold (calendula), corncockle, shoo-fly (nicandra, good for repelling aphids, really works :) ) and sweet cicely, whose leaves can replace some of the sugar used when stewing fruit. All the seeds have been collected from my garden here in Dorset, which has been organically managed for over 12 years now.
To be in with a chance of winning, please leave a comment on my blog, or send me an e-mail - address in the bar on the right under "September giveaway".

Good luck, and thanks for reading!

I liked the look of this book so much, I added it to Howard's Amazon basket.

But it's so far down the list now I can't find it!
