Congratulations to the three winners or our drawing for a gardening book. They are:
- Janet and Mark Bucciarelli
- Helene and John Cunningham
- Barry Magnani
Once we reached 350 new members of Grow Food Amherst this month, we used a random number generator to select three members “from a hat”. Each winner received a copy of “Food Grown Right, in Your Backyard” which was donated by the publisher for this purpose.
According to Helene Cunningham, this is the second year they have grown a vegetable garden. Last year, husband John and daughter Julie, carved out a small triangular chunk of their lawn. This year, they have planted tomatoes, beans and squash. John said even a few pumpkin seeds from last year are coming up!
Here is a look at part of their sweet little garden!
