Celebration Giveaway: Carrots Love Tomatoes

My blog went over 10,000 views and I'm celebrating with a giveaway!  

I have two copies of the book Carrot Love Tomatoes: Secrets of Companion Planting for Successful Gardening by Louise Riotte and would love to pass one on to a reader.  

You've heard of the Native American planting of the "three sisters" - beans, corn, and squash, plants who all benefit from being planted together?  Carrots Love Tomatoes takes that idea even further.  

Here is an excerpt from the book's back cover: "What Is Companion Planting?  It's just planning your garden to take advantage of the fact that vegetables and fruits- like people- have natural friends they prefer to be with.  And they help each other- like beets with onions or corn with pumpkins."

My copy is not in perfect condition (the copyright is 1975!), but it is in very, very good condition.

Blog readers leave a comment below this post and I'll draw names on November 30th.  I'll e-mail or contact the winner for the address where they would like the book sent.  Good luck!
