When I started this blog, it was with the intention of simply keeping track of my backyard habitat. In the beginning, I was not very disciplined about posting, but this summer I made up for that, even if it has mostly been with photos of daylilies.
My next goal for this blog is to generate more interest and attract more readers, but I want to reward the few of you who have been regular visitors. So, yes, we are having a contest.
All you have to do is leave a comment naming your favorite vegetable. Then I will randomly select a winner. The big prize? Your very own copy of Farmer John's Cookbook.
If you don't know, John Peterson owns Angelic Organics, a farm that provides 1200 Chicago-area shareholding families with boxes of fresh produce by following a community-supported agriculture (CSA) model. The cookbook was derived from the newsletters they provide with the produce, and besides recipes, provides a glimpse into farming, the people who farm, and those who participate in CSA's. For more information, rent "The Real Dirt on Farmer John" from Netflix. He is not your average farmer!
So comment now! Comment today! The contest will be open until August 8, 2008.
Thank you for your support.
