And the winner to my first ever give away is... Nikki! She posted correctly - potatoes! The green leaves you see are in fact the beginnings of my potato plants. This find was very exciting for me because I was afraid the raised beds that we tried this year were not providing enough soil for the potatoes. I was wrong!
So, what, you may ask is the prize for the smarty pants Nikki? She is the proud owner of a $10 Gift Certificate to Birdsong Community Farm! If you have not heard me rave about Birdsong Community Farm then let me take the opportunity. This is a local, truly organic farm which is run by FANTASTIC people - Joshua and Beth Haynes. Their goal is to keep their farm natural and the earth sustainable. They do a great job of informing the community of their work and assisting the community in gaining knowledge of a sustainable gardening environment. The Haynes have a booth at Cullman's Farmer's Market which is also another wonderful experience:) The Farmer's Market will be opening up on Saturdays starting this Saturday and the Strawberry Festival will be May 14 and 15. There is usually a 5K run that Saturday morning for anyone interested.
