Chosen by a random number generator Ellen Sousa of Turkey Hill Brook Farm is the winner of Recipes from the Root Cellar!  In her comment she mentions that there is a passageway between her garage and basement that maintains a consistent temperature that allows her to store winter vegetables so she’ll be able to put this cookbook to good use. Congratulations, Ellen.  I will get Ellen’s address and send this book right out. I’m sure she will find a some recipes perfect for the holidays.

Ellen will be celebrating the publication of her own book, The New England Habitat Natural Garden, this spring. Two hoorays and congratulations to Ellen.

Don’t forget, tomorrow there will be my third Giveaway – of particular interest to those who have, or want to have, a beautiful perennial garden.

Thank you Storey Publishing for being so generous and helping me celebrate my third blogoversary.

    Love reading your column and seeing all the pictures of your gardens and others. I would love to see the Gardens in Buffalo next year! Will have to visit my brother out there during the Garden Tour!

    Karen – Thanks for the kind words. You will love the Buffalo Garden Walk the last weekend in July – although some gardens are open other days. check their website, and have a great time.

    Whooohoooo! Thank you so much Pat!!! I never win anything so this is a good way to end the year 2010!!

    Only problem is I already asked Santa Claus for this book and I am not sure how to cancel out a request from Santa….if I do find this book under our tree maybe I’ll have to have a contest of my own from my blog 🙂
    take care,

    The book arrived yesterday and I enjoyed looking through it last night. Giggled how the author says, for her, “it all started with salsify” 🙂 For me, the same thing happened with asparagus, I never liked it till I tried it fresh from a local garden, and it was the start of a new obsession with vegetable gardening for me!

    Some great recipes, and inspiration for new veg to try growing next year (celery root and of course, salsify :-)) Now planning to hit our local farmstand which is still open for another week, and stock up on some more root veg to keep us fed through the winter! Thank you again for this great giveaway, and my family and friends will also be grateful (I hope!)

    Ellen – I am so glad the book arrived safely and that you like it. I haven’t had any luck growing celery root, but I might try salsify, too. Happy eating.
