Renee's Garden Seeds Winners!


As you may recall, on Wednesday I invited readers to enter a drawing for 14 packets of Renee's Garden heirloom Merveille De Quatre Saisons bibb lettuce by leaving a comment saying what vegetables you're planning to grow this gardening season.

It's exciting seeing so many people planning vegetable gardens and including veggies in their ornamental gardens, some for the first time this year. It's been fun reading all your comments and getting a sneak peak at what will be growing in your gardens this spring and summer.

As promised, names were drawn from a hat. . . the Lawn Man's hat to be precise. . . one of many in his vast collection of baseball hats. To make sure the drawing was completely unbiased, I asked him to draw the names. He was happy to join in the fun.

Although I wish I had a packet of seeds to give to everyone who stopped by to comment and enter the giveaway, it IS awfully nice to have fourteen prizes to give away.

And now, without further ado, the winners are:

(Drum roll please. . . . )


Racquel/Perennial Garden Lover
James/Toyota Pictures
Eschley
Monica/Garden Fairie Musings
Sally Anne 03/Sweet Sally's Rays of Sunshine
Catherine/A Gardener in Progress
Frances/Fairegarden
Rose/Prairie Rose's Garden
Brenda/View From the Pines
Carolyn G/Carolyn in Carolina
Jen/Muddy Boots Dreams
Nancy Bond/Soliloquy
Laura/Laura's Gardening Journal
Gail/Clay and Limestone

Congratulations! Winners, please send me an email to lintys2057@gmail.com, and include your full name and mailing address. I'll get the seeds out right away so you'll have them in time to take advantage of the cooler weather lettuce prefers.

Thanks to everyone for playing, and thank you Renee for providing the seeds. I'll look forward to hearing from the fourteen winners and getting seeds out to you as soon as possible. Happy gardening, and happy eating!

  2. You're so sweet! I'm bummed I missed this and many other posts. My week has been crazy and I've missed catching up with all my favorite garden bloggers. I'm up tonight to see what else is going on out there!

  3. How exciting, Linda! Now I won't have to debate about what kind of lettuce seed to buy this year. Many thanks to you for sponsoring this, to Renee for her generosity, and, of course, to the Lawn Man!

  4. Thank you Anna! I'm happy to share them! Wish there were enough to give some to everyone!

    Thank you Gardeness! I'm sorry you missed it too. It must be a challenge keeping up with a little guy at home wanting your attention. I haven't forgotten what it was like having little ones - hard to find time for yourself!

    Congratulations Rose! I'm looking forward to sending you some seeds! I think I got a little carried away with lettuce seeds, good thing they usually stay viable for a few years!

    Thanks so much for participating!

  16. Aw, nothing like reading the results of a contest you never knew about! Congrats to the winners, I "know" a lot of those folks via the blogosphere and figure I'll get to read/see all about their lettuces as they grow. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm slowly getting around to other Bloom Day posts, one day late!

    Sorry you missed the drawing.

  20. Linda, I'm way ahead of you--I always stock up any time the Kroger (store brand) dressings go on sale. :) I'm particularly enamored with their lite Caeser, which doesn't taste lite!

  21. I've been wondering around the blogosphere trying to remember who was giving away French lettuce heirloom seeds. LOL! I'm glad I found my way back. Great fun to see who won.

  22. Thanks Dee! I had the hat and the slips all ready for the Lawn Man, then I thought I should have a picture for the post, so I grabbed the camera and snapped!

    Hi Skeeter, hope you're having a great day!

    Hi Monica, Excellent! You're good to go! I've been addicted to an Asian dressing with sesame oil lately. Mmmm! Caesar's one of my favorite dressings - bet it will be good on some nice French bibb lettuce!

    Hi Curmudgeon, Thanks for playing! Oh, that sounds familiar - I've spent plenty of time wandering around the blogosphere trying to find a particular post! The old memory just isn't what it used to be, and mine was never stellar to begin with! ;)

  31. We have been getting all that rain too Rose. I am way behind in the garden this year. The weeds are trying to win the war. It is amazing how the flowers seem to know when bloom day is occuring and wait until the following day to open.
