Giveaway Winner!

Well it's September.
Kate informed me yesterday evening that there was a frost warning. 
Summer's fading away.
You all know we ran a giveaway this summer.
Anyone who linked up to our July and August Friday posts were entered to win a gardening book!
Thanks to everyone who linked up.  There were four of you (hee hee):
Kate, Carla, Rachelle and Michelle.  All lovely blogging friends.
The method of selecting a winner was super technical.  I wrote all your names on pieces of paper and had Ben pick one. 
And the winner is....

Woot!  Congrats Rachelle.
The only thing about Rachelle winning is she works on an organic farm so what on earth doesn't she know about gardening?
We decided to give her a choice of three books that seem Rachelle-ish so we're more likely to give her something she'll enjoy.
Here are our selections:
Michael Pollan's Second Nature
Niki Jabbour's Groundbreaking Food Gardens 
So Rachelle, comment on this post with your pick and email me your mailing address! 
Thanks for the fun summer blogging, friends.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I'm chuffed to have won and the book choices are so thoughtful. I'm actually in the middle of reading Second Nature right now (it's very good). :)
It's a tough choice between figs and 73 other gardens! We do love figs - the BEST of which I've eaten from Jean Talon Market in Montreal, but I think I'll choose Groundbreaking Food Gardens.
Thanks again, this was such fun and I love reading all your garden posts.

It's so nice that you're reading Second Nature, Rachelle. You'll have to let us know how it is; I've been meaning to read it. I think your choice will prove to be a good one! It'll be released at the end of the year so we'll pre-order it for you!
