Weekend Giveaway

Going home this weekend to share the new puppy with the family, pick up my computer (finalllllly), see my grandparents, go to a tractor show, eat chocolate from the best chocolate shop in the world, pick up the rabbit hutch my dad's been building for our bunny, and who knows what else...  Should be another busy weekend.

I'm bringing home a couple jars of homemade strawberry jam and lots of bags of garden-fresh lettuce that's growing faster than we can eat it.  Over Easter, I shared tomato plants that I started from seed with my parents, grandparents, and aunt and uncle.  One of the best things about our little farm is sharing the bounty of what we grow and cook with our family and friends.  With this thought, I am introducing the first-ever FarmBoots Giveaway!  All you have to do is comment on this post and finish this sentence : "My favorite thing about summertime is..."  Leave your email address (I will only email you if you win.)  I will put all the names into a hat and pick a winner!  What will you win?  A box of goodies from our little farm.  It may include a jar of home-made jam, hand-sewn oven-mitts, or a few of our favorite recipes...If your name is drawn I will contact you by email.  Good Luck and have a great weekend!

Oh, P.S. Thanks for reading!  I'm having a great time sharing my little farm adventures you!


  1. My favorite thing about summertime is that it stays light out so late!

  2. Ooooh, awesome! My favorite thing about summertime is hot days, cool nights, good food, cold beer, and lightening bugs. Ok, that was more than one thing, but you never set a limit!!!

    Oh, and you can hopefully add seeing ME to the list of things you're doing this weekend!

  3. My favorite thing about summertime is tomatoes!

    ps - I'm also a librarian, but I live in the city. I'm gardening, but I have big dreams of laying hens and beehives and eventually angora rabbits. Thanks so much for sharing your journey with us.

  4. Thank you! I hope your dreams of rabbits, hens and bees come true! My aunt and uncle live in a city and they just got bees. They live across from a park and they can watch them fly over to the park every day and then return to the hive.

  5. My favorite thing about summer is the way the sunlight comes through the windows in the stairway so when you walk past them you feel like life is perfect and magical. kayakergirl11@aol
