Greenland Gardener Raised Garden and Planting Kits--Win an Almost Instant Vegetable Garden Free!

It's time to get serious about planning this year's vegetable gardens and to that end, I want to pass on to readers the chance to win what seems like a pretty cool garden product. If you've ever considered putting in a raised garden bed in your yard but thought building it seemed like too much work (hey, that sounds like me!), this Greenland Gardener Raised Garden Kit could make you very happy. The kit includes four 40-inch side pieces made of composite plastic, four corner connectors, and four stacking clip that you put together to create a raised bed that will give you about 3 1/2 square feet of planting space. Assembly takes less than 5 minutes. Fill that with 7 cubic feet of potting soil (not included in the kit) and you're ready to plant.

If that sounds nice and easy, then you're really going to love the next part. To make the planting part even easier, you can use the Greenland Gardener Planting Kit. Each planting kit includes:
  • Salsa garden seeds: tomatillo, jalapeno pepper, basil, cilantro, parsley, serrano pepper, onions, and tomato.
  • Vegetable garden seeds: cucumber, eggplant, crookneck squash, bush beans, yellow tomato, sweet bell pepper, red tomato and zucchini.
  • Planting mat diagrams for the vegetable and salsa gardens that double as weed control. These are apparently made of landscape cloth that has the diagrams printed right on them, showing how many of each seed goes where. (How idiot-proof can it get, right?)
  • 10 fabric pins to hold down the planting mat.
  • Planting instructions.
With both these kits, you'll be able to get a productive veggie garden underway in hardly any time at all. One lucky winner will get a chance to try these two kits for free (a combined $58 value). To enter, just leave a comment about what vegetables you're planning on planting this year. Be sure to include your e-mail address so I can notify you if you win. The deadline is Thursday, February 10th at midnight. I'll announce the winner on Friday, February 11th.

UPDATED 2/11/11:  The winner of the raised bed and planting kits is The Alchemist! Thanks to all who participated!

    We're growing broccoli for the first time right now, and plan to plant peas and beans and tomatoes. I also just threw a few sprouting onions in the ground for a supply of green onions. I love the idea of the pre-printed garden planting mat.

    I've got cauliflower ready right now, and radishes, lettuce, turnips, carrots, and tom thumb container peas sprouting right now!

  3. We're hoping to can most of the tomato products that we use in a year-salsa, tomato sauce, catsup, and just plain canned tomatoes. Last year I bought 50 lbs of tomatoes from the farmer's market in August and by December we had used all of our canned goods. This year we want to grow all of our tomatoes and are hoping to get a lot more than 50 lbs so that we can be self-sufficient. We also want to grow peppers (sweet and spicy), eggplant, cucumbers (pickling and slicing), green beans, zucchini, squashes, and lots of spices.

    I would love to try these kits. Thanks for your blog!

  4. Planning to grow tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, beans, cucumbers, herbs and lots of catnip!

  5. I plan on growing a few kinds of tomatoes, a variety of peas (though they never make it as far as the kitchen), some summer squash, and lots of cucumbers. The snails usually kill my cucumbers early, but one of these days I'll outwit them.

  6. Tomatoes, fava beans (which are actually already growing), and some basil. I keep it pretty simple with the summer vegetables because most of the garden is devoted to fruit trees (36 of them).

  7. My goal is to never buy canned tomatoes again...but that means I need to plant some tomatoes! I hope I win, I do I do!!!

  8. I forgot to add that my email is jessicabode(at)comcast(dot)net

  9. Veggies...hmmm, I went way overboard on tomatoes last year, but who can have too many? I want to do some corn and cucumbers and honey dew. This veggie garden kit will help a lot!


  10. I am planning on planting chives, peas, carrots, tomatoes, and lettuce. I love gardening! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  11. I planted garlic for the first time this past fall and look forward to harvesting it this summer. Tomatoes are our favorite vegetable to grow but there is always something new to try and that will be kale this year. Looking forward to it and thanks for the chance to enter for your great prizes...!!

    Thank you. We're very excited. We've already started looking at how we'll fit this into our garden this year.
