Gro Good Garden Kit Winner

Two nights ago, someone stole our garden hose. Really, what kind of person does such a thing? Is there a special black market for garden hoses that I'm completely unaware of?

No worries, we'll get another hose, or find another way to water the lettuce, carrots and tomatoes we planted last Sunday in our Gro Good Garden.

In case you don't know what the Gro Good campaign is, Scotts Miracle-Gro, has teamed up Feeding America and Plant a Row for the Hungry in the hopes of donating over 2 million pounds of food to people who need it. Scotts will donate one million pounds, and those of us who take the Gro Good Garden Pledge are going to donate the other million!

As a part of the campaign, I pledge four things:
1) I pledge to garden for the greater good.
2 I will plant a little more than I need.
3) I will eat my home grown foods as often as I can.
4) I will donate my extra harvest to a local food bank.

And, Scotts offered to give away a Gro Good kit to one lucky Los Angelista reader, so that it's that much easier for someone else to jump right in to their gardening efforts. I used this randomizer site to generate a number, looked to see which qualifying entrant matched the numer of the person the number picked, and the winner is Anne from the blog Let It Shine!

Congratulations to Anne (please send me your contact info!) and thanks to everybody who entered and/or is planning to participate and donate food to those folks in our nation who really, really need it.

I promise to give you all updates on the garden as it grows over the coming weeks, and, as requested, I will include my little gardeners-in-training in them!
