Thank you to all 70 of you who entered last week’s garden giveaway contest!  I enjoyed reading all of your comments, and visiting some of your webpages through them. I’m always happy to meet new gardeners, and I hope to see you back again.

The winner of the metal crow is Kathlean Owens!  I will be in contact with you today to work out the delivery details, and pack him up for you ASAP so you can pop him in your own home garden.

Thanks for participating, enjoy this cute fall giveaway, and stay tuned for another great giveaway from Green Gardenista next month!

Who could say no to this cute little face, and what’s more, why would you want to?  Because he’s free!  He is my gift to you for reading along, or just stopping in for the day.  I appreciate your comments, and your feedback, and it’s time I gave you back something you can appreciate as well!

This cheerful little crow stands four feet tall when he is on his perch, and rocks back and forth in the breeze as the counter weight below him glides forward and back.  He is crafted and sealed to last year round in the garden, and will be sent to you in four easily attached pieces, which also makes him easy to store if you want to bring him in over the winter! Once he is assembled he will stand about 3 1/2 feet tall in your garden after he is inserted in the ground

So, if you’ve got a hankerin’ for some cute garden art in your yard, or just want something seasonal to add to your favorite container garden, leave a comment below to win!  I’ll be choosing a winner at random on Monday, October 25th.

Good Luck, and Happy Gardening!

Green Giveaway: “GreenStakes,” The 100% Biodegradable Lawn and Garden Tool

planted pot decorator pot greenstakes sodding 008 225x300 Green Giveaway: “GreenStakes,” The 100% Biodegradable Lawn and Garden Tool

Welcome to the Green Gardenista’s first Green Giveaway! I want to do my part to spread the joy of “going green” around, by giving you a great tool to do just that in your own yard!

Green Stakes are a 100% biodegradable alternative to metal sod staples and anchors, that solve all of our rusty “how do I recycle these” problems. This green innovation dissolves safely into the soil 8-24 months after installation, and can be used for a wide variety of garden tasks! I have used Green Stakes to anchor sod, mulch mats, and wildflower mats, but they have almost unlimited uses around the yard, and can be used with landscape fabric and even bird netting!

I will be giving away a box of 500 four inch Green Stakes next Thursday, October 23rd, to the winning name I pull at random from a hat. 


How To Win It Big: Enter your name, and what you want to use Green Stakes for in the comment section below, and stay tuned for the winning announcement to be made next Thursday! This particular contest is open to continental US residents only, due to overseas shipping costs. The stakes come in a box about the size of a standard shoe box..

Good Luck!
