  83. I’m not sure that I am entering properly because I don’t know what Rafflecopter is and I didn’t recognize any link for it on your post. Can you let me know if there is something I missed and need to do to enter? My husband very kindly puts in and manages a garden for me each year because I love the fresh vegies but can’t manage the work involved because of physical limitations. Secretly, I think he is coming to enjoy it because he bought bedding plants this year before I even mentioned it!! It would be so great to win this for him… .

    • Charlotte–second paragraph of the post, second sentence, if you click on the words ‘Enter here’ that’s a link to the rafflecopter page where you can enter properly–if you don’t go through that, your name doesn’t go into the ‘hat’. πŸ˜€
