Book Giveaway: Grow Your Food for Free

UK Author Dave HamiltonNOW THAT I’VE FINISHED MY BOOK REVIEW of Dave Hamilton’s book called Grow Your Food for Free*, I’m going to give away (including delivery) a copy of the book to a lucky Suburban Hobby Farmer reader.

For those of you who are not familiar Dave Hamilton, he writes the blog called the SelfSufficientIsh. His book shows readers how to combine dumpster diving (called skip diving in the U.K.) and other money saving ideas so that you can live large on vegetables and fruits grown in the backyard.

All you have to do to enter is list one of the fruits or vegetables you’ll be growing in the spring in the comment section below. The deadline for entering your favorite spring vegetable is:

Deadline to enter: 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on September 24, 2011

I’ll pick one person at random to get the book completely for free. The winner won’t even need to pay for delivery. I’ll announce the winner (and directions for receiving the book) on September 24 at 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time in the comment section below.

So don’t wait. All you have to do is list a fruit or vegetable in the comment section below. You have a very good chance to win. Good luck!

    It’s tomatoes for me! We’ve finally got some home preserving gear, and really want to process some nice pasta sauces this year.
