Win Free Gardening Book in HSA Contest

By Paris Wolfe, Blogmaster, The Herb Society of America

Rodale's organic gardening primerIf I’m ranking my favorite things, I must admit that herbs fall second. My first love is books. I love a new book’s promise of knowledge and adventure. And, free books are an absolute treat.

If you like herbs, gardens, books, the environment, you need Rodale’s Basic Organic Gardening : A Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Healthy Garden, by Deborah L.  Martin. And you can have it for free by entering the HSA Blog CONTEST.

Tell us your favorite herb and why – by May 5, 2018 –to enter a contest to win my review copy of the book. Simply state the herb and why in the comment section below this post or send an email to All names will be put into a drawing. Winner will be notified in mid-May.

I’ll go first.  My favorite herb is thyme, specifically lemon thyme. It grows prolifically with little care. It blooms the sweetest little purple flowers. It smells delicious when I brush my hand across it. It retains its flavor in dried form. Just like lemon, it punches up the flavor of almost any dish that calls for thyme.

I can’t wait to hear what you like best and why.
