If you’ve pretty much mastered the art of planting seeds and/or seedlings, giving them the right amounts of sunshine, water, and fertilizer, you’re probably ready for some new challenges.
Starting with your current compost pile or bin, have you considered adding worms to the mix, literally? A worm bin, or worm composting, can add a new dimension to your garden by providing rich soil processed by worms. This giveaway features a copy of How to Start a Worm Bin by Henry Owen, and this quick and easy read will walk you through the entire process from buying the right kind of worms through harvesting both soil and “worm juice”. Friends of ours, living along the Rio Grande in New Mexico, swore by their worm bin. They told us the liquid “juice” they got from the bin was the richest fertilizer they had ever used, so I’m sold on this technique to improve gardening results.
The second prize in this package will kick up your seed saving skills. When you fall in love with a particular variety of tomato, for example, if you can save seeds from the tomatoes you harvest, there’s no need to purchase seeds next year. However, not all plants are equal when it comes to saving seeds. I’ve written about this skill before, here and here, but if you win this book, The Garden Seed Saving Guide by Jill Henderson, you’ll have that information and more in a single compact book.
The winner of this giveaway receives both books, but if you aren’t the winner this time around, both can be purchased on Amazon.
