Here is the post she wrote last year after winning my contest, complete with a picture of the seed prizes I sent her... Mother of Pearls & an Emerald Winter 2011 Giveaway Winner.
|Michele's prize from last years seed giveaway|
Last year was her first time winter sowing and it sounds like she's hooked. In her email, she said... "I...wanted to share as a reader our results that WS REALLY works and a raving endorsement for your contest/posts! Keep up the great work"
WOW! How cool is that?!?
She also sent pictures of her first ever, almost entirely winter sown gardens (very impressive!). Many of the plants she used in these gardens were grown from seeds she won in my giveaway.
She created two new "enchanted" kids gardens (last two pictures), one of them was a sunflower forest. How fun!

I especially love that arch she created out of cattle fencing, I might just add one of those to my vegetable garden this year. Look at those pumpkins hanging down from the top of the arch, very cool.
Michele, your gardens are gorgeous, and very inspiring! I am thrilled that I was able to contribute to your first winter sowing experience! Thank you so much for sharing your experience and photos with us, and helping to inspire others.
