It's a blog book party and I am thrilled to be one of the guests at this shin-dig.
My dear friend and fellow garden blogger, Dee Nash of Red Dirt Ramblings has just published her first book, The 20-30 Something Garden Guide: A No-Fuss, Down and Dirty Gardening 101 for Anyone Who Wants to Grow Stuff. (St. Lynn's Press, 2014).
As soon as Dee's book showed up on Amazon, I pre-ordered copies for my nieces & nephews to give to them this spring. Shhhh... do not tell them that I did that. It's a surprise.
Wow, this party is going to my head. I'm so excited, I'm even revealing secrets.
But seriously, just for a minute before we go around and meet the other guests at this party and I tell you what Dee has arranged for me to give away to one lucky reader, I'd like to say that this is a wonderful book for anyone who finds themselves wandering over to the seed aisle of the big box store this time of year and wondering what people do with those seeds. It's a great book to give to someone who has just purchased their first home and now has a "yard" that should really be a garden. It's a guide that will lead any new gardener through the minefield that a garden center can be to those who have never really thought about gardening, and help them make good decisions to have a garden they can be proud of.
Dee, this is a wonderful book and you should rightfully be proud to have your name on the cover.

Now, back to this party which is full of guests and prizes for all.
First, here at May Dreams Gardens, I am pleased to be giving away seeds and gardening tools. Seeds and gardening tools! Two of my favorite things to garden with.
The seeds are from Botanical Interests, my go-to seed company when I buy seeds.
Heirloom Organic Seed Bank Collection, which includes seeds for a complete vegetable garden, everything from beans to turnips, including peas, squash, tomatoes, and more... 24 seed packets. These are all open-pollinated heirloom varieties, the varieties our parents and grandparents grew, if they were gardeners.
The tools are just the kind I have... from DeWit, these are quality tools that will last a lifetime.
How can you win these seeds and tools? Just leave a comment below and make sure it will lead me to your email address, or put your email address in the comment, using a format like email AT gmail DOT com so it can't be scraped.
Enter by Sunday, February 23 11:59 PM EST and I'll choose a winner on Monday, February 24 by random number.
