Bedtime + The Layered Garden Giveaway

by postroad on October 20, 2012

ah… bedtime. Seems to be an all-encompassing endeavor over here! But this time it’s the garden’s turn. I’ve been busy tucking in the garden for winter! Since baby boy, getting outside has felt like much needed therapy. I can only sit still inside for so long before I feel like jumping out of my skin!

Which is why I am cherishing every tiny bit of time I get to spend out there. Even if it’s just to pull the weeds that are multiplying even faster then our family seems to be.

Do you garden? This year I decided I want to learn how to save my own seeds for next year.  My favorite…. sunny lemon yellow sunflowers. They were so easy and such a fun project to do with my preschoolers!

All you do is cut some of the stalks that are dried out. (slightly brown on the back). Put the dried stalk in a paper bag and keep it in a cool dry spot until the seeds start to fall out. (You could just leave them in nature too…. but the birds might eat them all before you get a chance to save a few.)

I tied mine to my porch swing. If the bag gets wet make sure you put a fresh one on or your seeds may spoil with mold. Next year I’m going to plant a long row of these on the other side of my veggie garden with pumpkins below spilling down the hillside. I can’t wait!! I just need to transfer a bunch of the pig *** over there and dig up a bit. I think this would work for many flowers….. next year I am going to try this with some of my perennials and try to grow my ‘lil garden on the cheap.

Phew…. fall is such a busy time of year. Today we are saying goodbye to Pig-Liggies. :( The chuck full freezer will be nice but I can’t decide how to best avoid the chore……. go bumming with the kids or work on the 265th batch of tomato ______. (fill in the blank with either soup or salsa….. check those links out to see my favorite canning recipes this season.)

(sad to see them go….. but you can read why we grow our own food here)

If you have stuck with me this long you deserve a reward!! How about a big fat gardening book giveaway reward?? Because gardening season is coming to a close, I am stocking my library and library card with a bunch of juicy gardening books. I love learning. Especially garden learning. And especially in the dead of winter when there is five feet of snow on the ground and all I can think is the possibilities of what might be. (With gardening, I really do think the dreaming is half of the fun.)

The Layered Garden is an awesome book. It is so inspiring wether you are an advanced Gardener or someone who just wants to get started. I love that it tackles more of the design aspect and that the pictures are a-MAZING! It is all about designing your cottage garden so you will have continual interest and color year round.

When Timber press Publishing contacted me to see if I’d like to giveaway a copy to one of you I was all over that!! Someone is going to be one lucky reader!!!

To enter… please leave me a comment letting me know what you’d love to learn about or be inspired by to apply to your yard + garden

For extra entries you can share this giveaway on FB, Twitter, Pinterest, your blog, or any other social media site. Please leave an additional comment for EACH ENTRY.

The winner is also going to be gifted with NEW PRV handmade soap!!! (not yet released but will be out oh-so-soon!!)

Have fun!! Good luck :)

p.s. Timberpress publishing is also having an awesome giveaway on their site too….. (totally separate from this one).

I too love to garden. I have 6 raised beds that I garden out of and I am always trying to learn new things to do with my gardens. I have strawberries in one of my beds and asparagus in another bed which leaves me with 4 beds to grow out of. I would like to learn more about mulching my gardens and also the process of growing various crops together. I have heard that you can grow tomatoes with another crop under them to maintain a weedless area. So many things you can do. If I win this book, I would get a good hot cup of coffee and snuggle up some January evening when the winds are blowing and the snow is falling and dream. Thanks so much for all of your wonderful inspiration and ideas.

I have 2-3 acres of yard. That’s a lot of mowing. I have a vegetable garden, several hosta gardens and a few flower gardens. However, I’ve never been truly happy with any of them, and would love this book so I could learn how to update, change, completely redo – whatever it takes to make my gardens something I’m really happy with. I’m retiring in June so I will have a lot of time to work on them after that. So thanks so much for the chance to win.

Hi Heather! I would be so happy to win a copy of this book! I recently moved from my home of 32 years, to our new, forever home! It is a new build, so we are startingour landscaping from scratch:( I did manage to save some bulbs given to me from my grandmother, as well as some favorite perennials. Hoping they transplant into the new design (whatever that might be!) Thanks again, and also looking forward to trying your new soaps!!

I am an avid gardener but still stuggle with the design aspect of things especially after the perennials seem to take over. This book sounds amazing! I am a summer person even though I live in New England where the winters are way to long. My saving grace is that the seed catalogs arrive right after Christmas, I force lots of bulbs, read gardening books and open my greenhouse March 1st. Thanks for the great posts!

I love my gardens (‘cept the weeding). I actually would love to learn how to design and grow containers amongst my garden beds. I’ve been with the same old favorites for years and I’d like to expand my selections without digging new beds! (which would just give me more weeds to deal with!)

I am Granny to 10 and live in a lovely double wide mobile home. Don’t have lots of room but do enjoy my flowerbeds and get compliments from other residents in the park. Have been using mostly perennials and being the thrifty resourceful person I am, love to start a new plant from seeds or a cutting. Would you like some cypress vine seeds or hyacinth vine seeds? Just planted curly willow tree I started from a branch. The book sounds lovely and so does the soap. Hope I win!

Good morning! I’ve been a gardener in some capacity all of my life. Sometimes it’s only been a bean in a Dixie cup! I always have to have something growing because there’s nothing quite like that feeling of bringing in flowers or fruits and vegetables you’ve grown yourself. You never quit learning new things though, especially about this subject. This book sounds very helpful and fun to look at. I would love this book for my library even if I don’t win it!

Hi Heather,
We live in the country and have a big yard. I have a couple of small flower beds. I have dreamed of putting in flowerbeds that wrap around the edge of our yard, and making peaceful sitting areas in a couple of places(backyard and front yard) Our house sits in the middle of a cleared space surrounded by woods on all four sides. I always look at ideas but really don’t know how to choose the right plants, etc. I would LOVE to win this book! Happy Fall!!

Hi Heather,
LOVE reading your blog! Have read the book but now want to read it again. :)
I also love to garden and have been gardening for many years. I have 2 acres I’m trying to keep up. Yikes!
Just a word of caution about the pig poo. (I hesitate to even bring this up cause I don’t want to cause any angst but hopefully you already know.) It’s best to not use pig poo on any vegetable gardening areas. Flower beds are fine. We unwittingly used our pig stuff on our veg beds years ago when the boys were small and unfortunatley, a couple of my little guys got round worms. YUCK! It wasn’t pretty. Thankfully the medicine worked and all was well in the end.
Take care.

Gardening has been pretty important around here of late as I have RA which is an autoimmune illness and eating organic has been huge. So we’re farmers now growing as much as we can as the more I eat of vegetables the better I feel. That has all been a learning experience… I love art, decorating,cooking all offer opportunities to learn and become happier people sharing with the world.

Our garden is the heart of our home., as is very apparent if you look at the Galleria page on our website, anniegapron.com. It’s where we’re happiest – my husband and me! Over the past two years we have been working towards layered flower beds, but have only had the random article here and there to go by. This book would be a WONDERFUL guide for us. Would love to have it.

BTW…….good luck with all the tomatoes. We also can and our freezer is full of crushed tomatoes, waiting to be made into sauce ~ YUM!

I was just reading in Hobby Farms magazine about carbon sequestration–which means not disturbing the soil. No tilling! (No weed-pulling?) Works for soybeans but not for corn. That’s the second reference I’ve read in recent memory to not digging your garden too much after it’s been established; it preserves nutrients in the soil. So instead of spading everything up every year, you can just add a layer of newspaper to keep the weeds down? Something like that. Lazy gardening–that’s my style.

I would love to add to my rather puny garden plot in our backyard. This year, I planted a ton of beans (I was going to do a lot of canning…), however, our friends the deer family had a little smorgasbord out there before they were ready to pick. I’m envisioning some kind of enclosure out of found materials – maybe with pretty perennials growing up the sides? I’d love for my backyard garden plot to be as pretty as the perennial gardens, but with a lot of delicious veggies to eat! :)

Gardening is one of my top 100 favorite things to do too! Sadly these past couple of years I’ve not been able to garden much – I’m 10 months away from a bachelor’s degree and I work full time outside the home, so my life is pretty full. We are down to our last two jars of salsa that I have managed to make in the past two years and my husband is so bummed. It’s gonna be a long winter for him without his favorite salsa.

I love learning too, all thing gardening is one of my favorite topics – if you could see my bookshelves, you’d understand. However, I do not have this book and it would be welcome on my bookshelf. Thanks for the opportunity and happy fall garden clean up (and tomatoe-ing).

Hi Heather!
I would LOVE to win this book! Gardening is a passion of mine but I have some unique challenges to work with as far as light and space. I am working on an English Herb Garden in raised beds, but had to create it in the DRIVEWAY! LOL! Where there is a will, there is a way. I do have an area I want to plant with flowers and herbs, but need some ideas about what to combine, etc.
Thank You For Offering This Gift!
Sincerely,
Laurie

I do love to garden and am always trying to do things differently and hopefully better! I am an organic gardener, except for my few roses (they’re another story!) and I get a great deal of joy from my little urban space. Winning this book would be a genuine treat to enjoy during our long, grey wintery days. I would even share it with my neighbors, who also love to garden!

Thanks for the posts–they are a happy diversion from writing the last chapter of my dissertation! Cheers, Katie

We grow our own vegetables in 6 raised beds as well as in pots on the deck. Every year I try to add to the flower beds, mostly perennials as they keep coming back.
I’ve given up on tulips as the deer always get the prettiest bulbs just before they open.
I would love to win this beautiful book so I can spend the winter months learning more. I go thru garden withdrawal once it’s all tucked away for the winter.
Love your blog. My daughter has 6 children like you. She just had our first grandson after having 5 girls. We are truly blessed with these beautiful children. I’m sure you understand what I mean.

Dear Heather,
I love the fact that you are saving seeds. It would be nice to hear about ways you and perhaps others save seeds, such as tomato seeds from heirloom varieties. When we buy the pricey ones at the grocery store we could save a few seeds to grow for ourselves. Also, I curious about tips on growing tomatoes, such as dry farming, cages or poles, etc. …I have saved green pole beans that were grown on a teepee trellis quite successfully by simply drying the last few on the vine and then putting them away in a dry place. Other things like tomatoes take extra care, I believe.
Thanks so much for your sweet inspirations and photos.

Gardening has taught me to embrace whatever the results are, and let go of any disappointment how results look from my plans. I can plant, water, weed, etc, but God provides the rain whenever He pleases, winds dance through tall stemmed plants, and moles/deer/rabbits enjoy the buds. I enjoy the process of gardening and savour the surprising results.

I guess you can see by my e-mail address that i am a gardener. i have gardened for many many years probably since i was a tiny tot at my father’s knee. We lived in Africa for 14 years and my Dad had a gorgeous garden there. He had to built garden beds and put canopies over them, made of bamboo mats, to shade them at the hottest time of the day. My DH and i had a huge,2 acre garden for many years i learned so much from gardening friends and books both from the library and from my own collection. When my DH passed five years ago i moved to another town and was gifted by being able to start a brand new garden all from scratch and planned by me! Gardening in Canada is very differant from gardening in Africa and i love that i can put the garden to bed in the fall and refuel all winter, quilting and reading and scrapbooking and planning for the spring, my favorite season.Now i get most of my inspiration from Pinterest and garden blogs like your’s. There are so many generously talented people out there and I am the happy benefactor of so many wonderful ideas. The trees are showing their gorgeous colors right now and the Robins are all vieing for space in my garden and pond and eating the Mountain Ash berries…it is a treat to be able to be a part of the changing seasons and to enjoy the gifts of each in their turn. ..there is something to be learned there to about change, rest and renewal. The garden never is the same from one day to the next and we too can learn from nature that change is good and that taking time to charge our batteries only gives us more energy and inspiration for the next project.
