The Winner is…

The Winner is…

First of all let me apologize for the delay. I had hoped to announce this this morning but Blogger (the blogging platform I use for The Home Garden) has been down since Thursday evening. I was unable to write anything about the drawing for the Dupont Weed Fabric and Lowe’s Gift Card until now. I mentioned the delay on The Home Garden Facebook Page which is a good place to visit if something like this happens in the future!

To participate in the drawing all that was necessary was commenting and sharing your favorite weed prevention tips!

Here’s what you shared about weeding and who shared it:

Use newspapers or cardboard to prevent weeds (with mulch)
Laura, Anonymous, karenleigh, Tina, Megan, Danielle B., Michael, Sylvia, Denise, Lola, Melody, KayzKreationz, Anne, Randy, Rowena__, Gloria, Tessa, Dena, Mysterious OpenID Person (sorry you didn’t leave a name 😉 )

lisa, lorraine, Kevin, Ginger, Brenda, 

The old hand weed by hand technique!
Alison, Alan, My Kids’ Mom, Kristine M., Brandi Mills, Carmen, C.A.Marshall, Junk Loving Girl

Rolling up landscape fabric at the end of the season.

Covering with grass clippings.

Flame Weeders (Some Like it Hot)!

Till it and kill it! (Catchy!)

Now for what you’ve been waiting for – the drawing and who wins the landscape fabric along with a $100 gift card to Lowe’s. By using the random number generator set to pick the number between 1 and 43 (for all the great comments) and counting down in order from the first comment we will come up with our winner.

Drumroll please!

are you drumming yet?

It’s OK if you are in your office just grab two pencils and drum with the erasers…

No one in your office will mind…

They might think you’re a little crazy though…but it is Friday after all….

…paradiddle … paradiddle….roll…

and the winner is…..

Comment number 40! Which means our winner today is Ginger! Congratulations Ginger!

And thanks for everyone for commenting and visiting The Home Garden!

  2. Congratulations Ginger. I'm sure you will put it to good use.
    I too say "Lucky Lady"

  3. Aaaah I am insanely excited! Thank you! With Scott just quitting his job to stay at home with Clara, I have been resisting the urge to spend much money on plants this summer. This will be such an awesome, guilt-free way to fix that problem 🙂
    And can't wait to try the biodegradable landscape fabric.
    Thank you, thank you! Will email you my info.
