It will warm up in Wilmington.
that's what they say.
In the meantime. . .
We're re-stocking the GARDEN section!
To get everyone back in the mood, we're kicking off the
GREAT GARDEN BOOK GIVEAWAYWe have two fantastic, brand new, autographed books to give to TWO LUCKY READERS! They are:
Proven Plants: Southern Gardens by Erica Glasener
This book is a gorgeous guide to selecting perfect plants for your southern garden. If you garden here in Wilmington, and the surrounding area, you know that things just aren't the same as they were in your northern garden. If you were born and raised here, then you might already know about all of the lovelies in this book. Or, you might find some new favorites.
If you don't win it, I can almost guarantee you're going to want to buy it. The art direction is inventive, and elegant. The whole book is full-color, and makes use of new photographs of the plants and historic illustrations. It has a "modern yet classic" vibe. The information is solid, and being a transplanted gardener with several seasons under my belt, I can say that I honestly wish that this comprehensive book was around when I first moved here five years ago.
Grocery Gardening by Jean Ann Van Krevelen, Amanda Thomsen, Robin Ripley and Theresa O'Connor
Another brand-new, full color, gorgeous and practical gardening book that not only tells you how to grow your favorite culinary plants, but also how to cook with them. I personally know the four ladies who wrote this book, and they are all fantastic gardeners and writers. They're all on twitter, and they're a scream! I think this will be one of my most-used books this summer once my veggie gardening kicks into high gear.
How do I win?Yeah, I know that's all you really want to know, now. Here's what to do. You have between today and Monday, March 15th to comment to this blog post with the reason why you think you need either the Proven Plants book or the Grocery Gardening book.
