Promo & Giveaway: What’s Wrong With My Vegetable Garden?

**This Giveaway is now CLOSED. Congratulations to Julie A! And a big thanks to everyone who entered.**

Ever have a plant die for seemingly no reason, or have a problem in your garden you just couldn’t figure out?

I have lots of that every year. And it’s hard to look up how to fix a problem when you don’t even know what’s causing it!

Well, Timber Press is actually running a really cool promotion through the month of August, where readers can submit their gardening questions to the expert authors there. Once a week, a reader submitted question will be answered by the authors, and the person whose question was chosen will receive one of Timber Press’ problem solving books! Anyone who submits a question will be entered to win the grand prize: a brand new iPad!

One of the problem solving books being offered is What’s Wrong With My Vegetable Garden by David Deardorff & Kathryn Wadsworth. Timber Press sent me a copy to check out so I could share my thoughts with you.

What I like about this book is that it doesn’t only decipher garden problems, but it goes through just about every vegetable A-Z, tells you all about how to plant it from seed, and then lists potential problems you may encounter.

In the second half of the book you will find Family Problem-Solving Guides. In this section it lists all of the pests and diseases of each type of plant. Beside every symptom being diagnosed is a full color photo of what your plant will look like if it has this particular problem. Which makes it so much easier to say, Ah-ha! So THAT’S what that is!

It’s the kind of book that you can take with you out into the garden, sit down beside a troubled plant, and flip through the photos and descriptions to diagnose the problem. Very, very helpful.

And guess what… since I love you, and because Timber Press is so awesome, I get to offer one of my readers a free copy of What’s Wrong With My Vegetable Garden! Yay!

If you’d like a chance to win this helpful problem solving book, simply leave a comment below letting me know you want to win! Be sure to enter your best garden dilemma over at Timber Press’ Garden Problem Solver promotion, for another chance at awesome prizes!

I’ll choose one random winner on Sunday, June 24th at 9pm EST. Giveaway open to residents of US and Canada. Good luck everyone!
