    Hey Renea, I know we are supposed to post on another of your blog entries in order to enter, but I wanted to thank you on THIS one! How lovely that you didn’t succumb to the way so many bloggers run their contests lately. They want you to tweet every day for a week AND *like* them on FaceBook AND leave a post on two different blogs AND sign up for their newsletter AND touch your right elbow to your left ear, etc. You get the idea. So, it’s refreshing to discover your easy entry. YOU are a real winner! Thanks again and see you soon!

    Awesome give a way. It’s such a great concept for promoting your blog.I usually get plants from the local nursery. My five tomatoes and 8 green pepper plants hardly warants the starting of seeds. It’s such a great concept for promoting blogs.

    Have a great give a way day.

      It’s funny you have this about heirloom seeds, as I was just “turned down” at our local Farmers Market for having a craft that involved old seed packets that I incorporate into little baskets as a table decoration….what a bunch of chumps. They claim I’m “reselling” a product. The seed packets are dated 1974. I hope no one thought they would sprout. Some people have small minds. I liked the packets for the art of the Botanicals….Yours are lovely too.

        Good for you, Bridget! Sounds like you are just “recycling” beautiful art on those seed packets. Perhaps you should sell them on instead!

        If they are the same seed packets as featured I can understand why you would not want to through them, but reuse them instead!

        Some folks are not very very bright….!

    Took me sometimes to read some the comments, however I absolutely enjoyed the post. It proved to be pretty beneficial to me and I am determined to all the commenters right here! It’s all the time good when you can not only be informed, but also entertained!

    I liked the post on Poison Ivy. I have (so far – knock on wood!) managed to avoid getting the rash, but I know it is just a matter of time!

    I was so happy to see this post and the one about how you used seeds from the grocery store. I love to do these kinds of tests and have had great success!
