Craig over at Dyke’s Edge Allotments ran a photo competition a few weeks ago and, guess what, I won with my parsnip photo!! The prize – a laminated magazine mock-up of the photo and some packets of seeds.
Thanks very much Craig for a great prize. If you haven’t checked out Craig’s blog get over there, he’s made amazing progress on the plot over the last few months.
I hope my winning form continues when I visit Newbury races this Saturday!!
Two weeks ago I started a free giveaway competition for a copy of “Food for Free” by Richard Mabey, a pocket sized guide for any would-be forager. All you had to do was leave a comment on the post to have a chance of winning.
There were 25 entrants battling for pole position: Craig, Jan, Lucy, Ian, Jo, Rob, Sue, Una, Andrew, Amy, Jade, Maureen, Louisa, Flighty, Mellisa, Ellie, Hillwards, Jenny, Niece, Mark, Brittany, Sarah, T.J., Carolyn and Angela.
Choe made the draw, independantly adjudicated by Emily, from her Peppa Pig Wellie boot.
And the winner is………………
Congratulations!!! I’ll be in touch shortly. Happy foraging everybody!
With Autumn now well and truly underway we’ve taken our first tentative steps into the world of foraging. To celebrate this new pastime I’ve got one of the classic guide books to give away. “Food for Free” by Richard Mabey, an illustrated guide to over 100 edible plants, berries, mushrooms, seaweed and shellfish, was first published in 1972 and is probably the best known guide book in its field. And the great thing is it’s pocket-sized, easy to take with you when you’re out and about.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, my daughter Chloe will draw a winner in a couple of weeks time, and I’ll post it out. Totally free, as simple as that. I look forward to hearing from you!
