More Free Stuff From Fiskars

And the Fiskars fun continues.  They have also offered to give you people an UpRoot Weeder, another tool that Gen and I reviewed last year.  If you have a lawn, or some other part of your garden that gets overrun with little annoying weeds, this is the most fun toy ever. (And it works.)  Really, I had such a good time playing around with this thing.  You can read my earlier post here and Gen's here.

We actually ended up doing two videos because we were having such a good time.  I'll post them both below.  What you need to know is that you can post any kind of weed-related comment to win, and you can also go over to Gen's blog and get one there, too.



and the next one is:


Fiskars Loppers--We Have a Winner!

Thanks to everyone for commenting!  Commenter MiSchelle won in a random draw--she says:


Being the resident Master Gardener in my neighborhood, I'm often summoned to "help" prune shrubs and small trees. It's a good thing, because I'm a compulsive pruner and my own poor shrubs would be nibbled down to nubs if I didn't have this outlet. Now that I've passed the half-century mark I find it challenging to do rejuvenation pruning using only my regular loppers. These fiskars gear-powered loppers look like just the tool I need!


Thanks as always for playing, everybody!

50-Mile Bouquet--We Have (Another) Winner!

Debra Prinzing chose a winner from among you brave people who shared a photo of your own floral handiwork.  She put them all in a bowl and let her son choose one.

The winner of our random drawing is:

Ann Amato, A Year of Ikebana
