Review & Giveaway: Spring Gardening with Plow & Hearth


My parents have always kept an organic garden, as children we were enlisted to water the plants while they were at work.  For us it was a chore and we were not appreciative of the health and cost saving benefits that comes from growing your own food.  But as adults we all get that 'aha' moment where we look back and realize "Mom and Dad" were right.
  

I grew my own tomatoes and cucumbers a few years ago but only last year did I fully appreciate my garden.  You can read up here in my "How Does Your Garden Grow" articles about my wonderful yields.

This spring, get out into your garden and start planning your organic garden with Plow & Hearth.  We took the quickest and easiest route and built a raised bed garden last year.  If you are interested in organic gardening, all you need is a raised bed kit or raised bed corners and non-treated wood plus rich soil, compost, manure and seeds.  We love Burpee seeds because of the good quality plants and vegetables that result.
                                                        
 

 

As part of my Spring Fling giveaway event which is being held next month (March 13th-19th), Plow & Hearth has kindly sent me a few garden products for review and offered a $50 Gift Certificate giveaway to fit the "Out with the Old, In with the New" theme prize package. 




I chose the natural cedar wooden pathway for review as the organic garden area can get a little muddy from the water run off.  This pathway now offers an easy to use walkway and I will be able to harvest my vegetables without getting all muddy.  I also have visions of using this pathway in a Japanese garden theme.


I love making my garden my own with small ornaments.  The ladybug and turtle ornaments not only serve as hidden treasures but doubles up to hide my shed keys.

BUY IT
This spring, make your garden work for you with a raised bed garden from Plow & Hearth.  Gardening has never looked so fun, stylish, healthy and economical.
  
WIN IT
Thanks to Plow & Hearth a Freebie Junkie reader will win a $50 Gift Certificate to be used at Plow & Hearth. 

Early entries to the giveaway are now Closed
