There were a total of 86 comments left last week on the post for a chance to win a copy of the Garden Rules by Jayme Jenkins and Billie Brownell.
I’d like to thank everyone who submitted a comment and left one of their own garden rules, and I’d also like to thank Cool Springs Press, Jayme and Billie for supplying the prize.
To select the winner, I went to Random.org and used their True Random Number Generator. I put in 1-86 and the number generated was 22.
The comments were ordered from newest to oldest and counted down to the 22nd comment, which was left by Jolene Schneider:
Mike, I stumbled across you and your website a couple weeks ago; you have completely inspired me to finally get off my butt and GARDEN already! There was always an excuse of not enough room, even though I have a huge yard and such… so my husband almost has my new composter fully assembled, and I bought a pretty pot (to increase my compliance) for the kitchen compost… got my veggies… etc. I have had the Michael Pollan books sitting around… I finally started reading those, too. And as I’m ready to start Food Rules, bam! You come up with this contest. So I have to say, I have to agree with the “No Rules” answer, but to be original, I will say that my rule for myself is that I will not give up, no matter the outcome, because even my attempt is an attitude in the right direction!! Thanks, Mike, for being my motivator!
Congratulations Jolene and thanks again to everyone who entered this contest. Please be on the lookout for more in the future.
