I won! I never win anything. A few weeks ago I started reading the Simply Stated blog by Real Simple. I ran across this post where readers could make a comment and by doing so, put their names into a drawing for a Burpee Home Gardens starter set with tomato, pepper, and basil plants. I got an email yesterday from Real Simple saying that I was one of the 8 lucky winners. I wasn’t sure it was legit until I looked at the blog this morning and saw my name listed as an official winner.
I’m not positive what the set IS. I assume it’s seed packets and not live plants? But, I’m excited about it whatever it is. Tim and I wanted to start a square foot garden this summer, but it’s already May 15th. Is that too late? Maybe we can at least get our boxes built this year, so we can start a garden next year. We already have quite a few projects to do this summer – paint the garage, repaint the front of the house, rebuild our back porch, paint the stairway to the basement, etc. etc. etc. Plus, we need to have tons o’ fun.
I’m excited to see the starter kit. Thanks Burpee and Real Simple!
