I've been up with the sun running most days lately, but--blessedly--he sleeps in just a little more every day. In addition to the tardy sunrise, the mornings are getting chilly. The Kid, who happily rides in our jogging stroller in a diaper and t-shirt in July, has had to don pants and long sleeves this past week.
The garden is coming to that time of year too. I'm harvesting and drying fistfuls of sage in anticipation of the winter holidays. My roses are making plump, orange hips. My beloved cosmos are keeping me busy, pulling off their seed heads and depositing them into my recycled take-out container for planting next spring.
And, of course, I'm trying to squeeze in one last round of veggies. I emailed Cubit's Laura a few weeks ago (yes, that's what I call her in my head!), desperately seeking broccolini. It's one of our favorites, and I can't seem to find the seeds locally. She happily agreed to provide.
Of course, I couldn't leave it at that, so I had to get a few other favorites, as well. I ended up choosing....
Once I had made my selections, Nice Cubit's Laura suggested, "Hey, why don't we give that same set away to one of your readers too?" I thought that was a splendid idea, so here you go!
This week's giveaway is one set of the seed packets listed above. Winning them is easy as growing broccolini. Just go "like" the Cubit's Facebook page, then leave a comment telling me you've done so.
I'll pick a winner next Saturday. In the event you can't wait that long or need more seeds than that, Laura is also offering a coupon code. Put in "MYBIT" at your Cubit's checkout and you'll get 15% off your seed order. The code is good until December 31st, so you can also enjoy it for Christmas and (if you're on the ball) next spring's seed orders!
[P.S. I've only had two entries in the Kidecals giveaway last week--me thinks many of you may have been distracted with the holiday--so I'm going to keep it open just one more week. It's a really awesome one, so go put your name in the hat!]
