Giveaway!

I'm so excited about this super fabulous giveaway sponsored by CSN Stores. They have everything from lighting to cookware to fitness equipment.  They are giving away this beautiful red apple peeler to one of you lucky readers!
This baby peels, slices, and cores apples. Just think how much apple sauce you can make if you have this peeler, think of how many dehydrated apples you can make. But, best of all, with this baby, you can enlist the help of your kids.  And when apple season is over,  it can also peel your potatoes!!! I'm starting to feel like an infomercial!

Tip: Each comment equals 1 entry. So leave a separate comment for each!

For your first entry: Leave us a comment about what your favorite theme here on backyard farming is. Example: recipes, gardening, chickens, current events, organic foods, raw milk etc.

For another entry: Blog about this giveaway on your blog, come back and leave a comment with your blog address. (This will also help promote your blog!)

For another entry: Become a fan of backyard farming on facebook, come back and leave us a comment that says "facebook". If you are already a fan on facebook, you already qualify for this entry.

My favorite theme is gardening! But really I love it all! I just found this blog yesterday and can't wait to start at the beginning and read all the way through it!

PhillipT said...

I've been reading your blog for over a year now and just realized I wasn't following! That had to be changed!! I am now following.

Thanks for hard work!

Lindsay said...

My favorite theme to read about is gardening! I have a half acre though, and so my square foot garden method doesn't take enough room! I guess I need some chickens, so chickens is my second thing to read about! :)

I love the ideas from the variety of followers. It's also fun to see how creative and smart my cousin is!

Shauna said...

I love the gardening talk. And the chickens. (Can I have two favorite themes?) :)

Stephen Palmer said...

1. Not sure if this is the type of theme you have in mind, but what I appreciate most is your balanced approach. I'm as passionate about locavorism and organic food production as anyone, but I'm also aware of the dangers of any extremes, and you all seem to get that too. (For example, Dale Johnson's post "The Demons of Factory Farms?")

2. I've blogged about your giveaway here: http://palmerjourneys.wordpress.com/

3. I've just become a fan on Facebook.

4. I've just followed your blog.

Great giveaway, and I love your blog!
