Garden Giveaway #8: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Composting

WHAT!?!?  Yes… you read that right… Chris McLaughlin’s book that ISN’T EVEN OUT YET (but you can pre-order it on Amazon right now)!  Well, and you won’t get it until it comes out either – but when it does, you (well, you… if you win) will get a copy of it.  For those of you that do not know which book we are talking about (or for those that can’t read the freakin’ title of this post) the book is called…

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Composting (Check out the fan page on Facebook)

That title makes a lot more sense now eh?  Thought so.  So you have been wondering how to do the whole “composting” thing, but don’t know how to get started?  Or maybe you just can’t do it right – you keep trying and trying and can’t seem to get that black gold that you desire.  This is the book you need to have.  Chris is a composting master of the universe – and she provides you w/ everything you need to know about composting in one easy guide.  And no… I did not just call you an idiot.  I mean… nevermind.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Composting

Oooooooooooh wait a second… I almost forgot the cherry on top part!  Chris has agreed to come to your house and show you personally how to compost!  Not really, I made that part up.  And Chris just read that and spit her coffee all over her laptop.  Sorry ’bout that.  I lie a lot.  Not really.  There I go again… lying.

What Chris really agreed to was to sign this copy of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Composting.  AUTOGRAPH PEOPLE!  FROM FAMOUS PEOPLE!  CHRIS IS KINDA A BIG DEAL – I think she was on American Idol or something.  Maybe Project Runway… or maybe she is kind of a big deal on Twitter.  I can’t remember.

So you know what to do…  and if you don’t, I will write the next book called… “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Entering Double Danger Contests By Leaving a Freaking Comment – FOR THE UMP-TEETH TIME!”  Didn’t mean to yell at you, I get excited sometimes.  I’m lying again.  I meant to yell at you.  Leave a comment.  A nice one, about how cool our site is and how funny I am and how you wish you could win The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Composting.  We will randomly draw a name tomorrow and announce the winner… like always.  Then we will laugh and drink and talk about how fantastic life is.  Until next time… good luck & good gardening.

  1. I can’t wait for Chris’ book to come out! I’d love to get a free signed copy. Please see that I win this one! Oh, and you are hysterical (even with all the lying).

  2. Hahahahahahaha….DUDE – I SWEAR to you, the tea cup was at *my mouth* when I read this! And I’m TV famous because I was on that show…what’s that one called?..Um the one where it’s like from Asia somewhere and you have to go through this gauntlet of inflatable Godzillas…on water…with people shooting at you. Do you watch that one? (Well, obviously you do…)

    (Oh yeah, just pull me out of the entry – Ha)

  3. LOL.. I found you via facebook, via Dee…

    While I’ve been composting for a while, and with some success, it would be nice to know what I’m doing right and wrong.

  4. Ooooh enter me, enter me! It looks like I should check in your site more often! 🙂
    How’s that garden coming along? We started one in the kids’ old blue pool from last year (that had some holes in it) and our radishes and some lettuce are about ready to harvest 🙂

  5. Oh man! I was hoping Chris was really showing up for personal coaching! I need help pulling weeds something fierce! 🙂

    This is yet another great contest and I look forward to the release of The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Composting!

    (and I’m trying those ribs this weekend!)

  6. Pick Me! Pick Me! I just found the site via facebook, and I intend to waste, errr…constructively use…my time this afternoon browsing through it while at work. 😀

  7. I’m a complete idiot when it comes to composting, so I’m really looking forward to this book. Could use the personal lessons from a TV star, or even a Twitter star, but I understand busy schedules.
    BTW, When trying to wrap a website in bacon, try using toothpicks for anchors. But it’s funny enough sans bacon.

  8. Hmm, given that my current compost pile has started to annoy my neighbor, perhaps I qualify as someone who needs this book. In the meantime, nice site!

  9. Chris is such a lovely and knowledgeable person in the gardening world. Just knowing what I do about Chris, this book should be full of complete, and easily understood instructions on how to create the best compost, and in the easiest way.

    I hope to be fortunate enough to gain this wonderful book either by give away, or eventually by purchase when it becomes available. The signed copy would be nice. Be sure to check her blogs or Facebook page out, you will not be sorry, and come away richer in knowledge of the gardening world.

  10. Oooh, ooh! I’ve had my pile for years and have never been able to get it to cook. I clearly *need* this book!

  11. Gardenergal (Teresa Cansell)

    Oooo…. I would love to win this! Besides, my hand is getting tired of holding the thumb and forefinger in the shape of an L on my forehead.

  12. I just found you through #FF and you are funny! I’d love to win this book, although I won a book last year on twitter and the person never sent it to me. Hmmm…But seriously I’d love to know more about composting.

  13. I am pretty sure this is rigged….Im just sayin. Just in case, here is my comment and name. I need that Compost 101 book, I really dont know a thing about posting.
