The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Daffodil giveaway

Daffodil flowerWhile wheel-barrowing a load of cushaws into the house yesterday, I remembered a fall chore I'd completely forgotten --- digging daffodils.  Daffodils are a fact of life here at Wetknee Farm, one of the few remants of the previous owner who left decades before we arrived.  When we first came to the farm, we discovered that daffodils had spread out from the old homeplace to cover nearly an acre of good garden ground.  I gave away hundreds, sold hundreds, and ended up transplanted another thousand or so out of the way. 

Now the garden is once again encroaching on my daffodil patch --- time for a daffodil giveaway!  Drop me an email by clicking on the "Ask a Question" link at the top of the page by Sunday night, and on Monday morning Mark and I will draw a name out of the hat to be the lucky winner of 50 daffodil bulbs.  Be sure to mention the daffodils, your email address, where you live, and how you heard about us in your email. Be aware that we can't send the bulbs out of the U.S.

The picture below shows 20 of the bulbs --- as you can see, they are all sizes.  To read more about them (or buy some if you lose the giveaway), visit our native plants website.  Thanks for playing, and good luck!
