Green Garden Give-Away (#5): Over The Fence

Ok, this is the final give-away of the week.  This has been fun hasn’t it?  I mean who would have thought so many folks would have shown up and we would have got a chance to meet so many new gardeners & greenies!  Thanks for joining us here at Double D, we hope you stick around.  Wait…

Your not one of those people that just come around for the free stuff are you?!?

Better not be.  😉

So if you haven’t figured it out yet, all of this is in celebration of National Gardening Month and so what better way to wrap this up than for a gardening book for experienced & n00b gardeners?  No better way.  Give-away #5 is the gardening book – Over The Fence by Joe Lamp’l.  If you don’t know Joe… you don’t know Jack.  Wait…  you know what we mean.  Joe is on Twitter for you garden twits out there.  Go follow him if you aren’t already – here.  Here is the actual book…

Over The Fence - Joe Lamp'l

Joe is an elite gardener that has started a movement and you can read all about the $25 Victory Garden on his blog (which is an awesome read).  Joe has donated this book to the contests and we are hoping we can get him to sign the copy that you will win (but that is yet confirmed).  He has been on Good Morning America a few times in the last month – and is a true advocate for home gardening.  So how cool is it to get HIS book and truly learn from a long-time gardener that has a cause!

So you know what to do… comment and you are in.  If you are on Twitter – tell everyone you know!  And even people you don’t know.  We want this to be our biggest turn out of all.  So blog about it, call your neighbors – your cousins… Grandma.  Whoever you can think of that would love a gardening book – tell ’em.

As always, thanks to Joe Lamp’l for the contribution – and please go check out Joe Gardener and even download his free e-book in the meantime (while your waiting to win of course).  Good luck everyone!

  1. Me! Me! Me! Me! Pick Me! Joe is a great guy, very approachable and always happy to help. And maybe he shares the secret of his last name in the book! (never met anyone w/ an apostrophe at the end of their last name before) 😉

  2. Hey I’d love to have that book for two reasons; A. see my website for how it can help me, and B. tomorrow is my birthday. No joke, the big 3-0. Congrats on your success Joe, I’m off to Twitter about you now.

  3. Okay… we begged yesterday… and that didn’t work. I can see we’re going to have to get more serious about this. I’m seeing some sort of curse on your garden that will prevent it from growing ANY BACON!! *insert evil music here*

    We’ll see…

    (but reallly… PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME!!)

  4. This looks like a great read! If I win it, I’ll start a book discussion group around it! And put it in the lending library, too!

  5. New gardener here and very excited…..thanks for the opportunity to win something that might help me get going. What are the odds the book has info that will help me get rid of squirrels? They are wearing me out! 🙂

  6. …I admit it, I’ve only come here for the free stuff! However…if I win this book, I’ll come back here and read ever so much. yes, I will, you can be sure of it.

  7. Yeah for Joe! I had the pleasure of meeting him in person a few weeks back at a SF Flower and Garden Show – wonderful guy. Hey – I love your website, too. If my husband doesn’t give your workbench a go – I just may try it myself!

  8. I’m all for Joe’s project – mine is one of the envelopes full of seeds to arrive at the post office in his video – and I would love to have a copy of his book, signed if possible. It will go next to my signed copy of Owen Dell’s ‘Sustainable Landscaping for Dummies’.

  9. I don’t know if it would be right letting me win this contest…I am gardening challenged. As in. I don’t do it.

    But I will make out with the author for kicks and giggles!!

  10. would love to win! we’re going to have our first garden this year & are starting absolutely from scratch! since we don’t have garden tools, we’re even borrowing those from people to cut down on expense. 🙂 joe’s the best! can’t wait to see his how victory garden comes together.

  11. Well, it IS my first time visiting, but I’m so glad I found this site that even if I don’t win, I’m glad I came, and I can promise you I’ll be coming back often. Just the mention of bacon up at the top of the page has me intrigued! I’m a master gardener and am teaching some gardening classes this coming Saturday, one of which is “how to grow $650 worth of vegetables from $10 worth of seeds” which we are calling a “recession garden” but clearly it comes from the Victory Garden concept! Thanks for advertising this contest which got me to look at this site!

  12. Well, I can’t keep any plants alive…. seriously. You’d think with my genes I’d have an amazing garden, but no. My Mom LOVES her gardens! She runs the local Farmer’s Market through the summer and gets to meet all sorts of great gardeners.

    Call me cheap, but this would be a great Mother’s Day gift for her!

    I’m going to add you to my April Giveaways section of my blog and Twitter this for you. Great blog and great giveaway!

  13. Please pick me! We are replacing all non-native and invasive plants in our yard with native edible plants & could use all the help we can get.
