THIS WEEK MARKS THREE YEARS since I started A Way to Garden–which many of you think is actually Away to Garden, and an intentional double-entendre, because I’d just left the city for life in the garden when I began blogging. But no, I’m not that clever, at least not consciously. The blog is named for my 1998 book with a four-word title, and though you cannot tell that in the all-run-together url, the green masthead up top (adapted from the cover, see?) is proof. To celebrate, I’m offering a giveaway of two copies of that now-collectible volume that is the site’s namesake…if only you will answer this:
Have you bought my new book yet? (Tee hee. )
The actual question to enter the third-anniversary drawing:
What’s your favorite story or kind of story so far in your travels around my garden site?
(Not sure? Try the “Browse by Topic” List in the far-left narrow column on every page, which you can also access here if you prefer to browse by images. Or start with the “Best Of” top-50 page, or my latest offering, just compiled this week: Margaret’s Madcap Favorites (the ones I had fun doing or find myself referring back to or that just stick in my mind for who knows what reason).
So now tell us: What do you like best? The Andre doodles? Slideshows? Technique posts, like how to graft tomatoes? A recipe, a particular plant profile, an essay? Or what?
How to Enter
WINNERS WILL BE SELECTED at random using the tool at random [dot] org. Entries close at midnight Eastern on Thursday, March 10, with winners to be announced the next day. All you have to do to enter is comment below, saying what you like the most on this website.
Note: “A Way to Garden” (the book) goes for up to $200-plus on the used-book circuit; when I checked today, there wasn’t one available for under $65. So when I promised in the latest newsletter that we’d have a special celebration for this very big anniversary, I meant it. (What? You don’t subscribe to the free email newsletter?)
Thanks to all of you, old friends and new, for making A Way to Garden such a positive community. I look forward to another spring (summer, fall, and yes, even winter) together, and then some. First, though, don’t leave this page without putting your response in the comments: What about A Way to Garden (note: that’s four words, or one if it’s the url) makes you come back for more?
