The winner of my “Spring Fever, Lemon Wreath” giveaway is Dalene Hamilton, who left this comment in response to “Tell me what you most look forward to when you sit down with an issue of MaryJanesFarm.” (488 comments!)

“I would love to win this wreath to give to my mother-in-law to put on her door at her new home in Golden Age Nursing facility. She’d be the talk of her hall. Thank you for your magazine and giveaways.”

——

The winner of my “Spring Fever, Lemon Sign” giveaway is Mary Katherine Hook, who left this comment in response to “Share your favorite quote.” (586 comments!)

“I have been a fan of Erma Bombeck and MaryJane for many years. I live with my daughter, son-in-law, and 27-month-old grandson. Last year at 21 months old, he was diagnosed with a golf-ball-sized brain tumor. He had brain surgery on August 11, 2016. We believed the tumor was gone, but when he had an MRI in December, it showed the thing was growing back. He is currently undergoing an 18-month-long protocol of chemotherapy. My beautiful daughter has dealt with these obstacles with grace and hope. She has started an informational blog to help other families of children with cancer. Her blog is called, “Navigating the Impossible.” She is making “Lemonade out of lemons.” I would like to win the sign for her. I would purchase it for her, but our finances have taken a huge hit. I hope that I can give this to her as a blessing.”

The winner of my “Spring Fever, Lemon Pillow Covers” giveaway is Jane Jones, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about a time in your life that you made lemonade because life-had-given-you-lemons.” (87 comments!)

“I went into the Navy thinking you could go anywhere you wanted to. I was really disappointed to find out I’d be going to Bethesda, Maryland, instead of Hawaii. All that “brass”! No one thought I’d get through it because I don’t bow and scrape. What I DO do though, is to find all types of people genuinely valuable and interesting. It was pretty cold in MD sometimes, no beaches or pineapples I’d so hoped for, but I thrived because the people were so awesome.”

——

The winner of my “Spring Fever, Lemon Clock” giveaway is Briana Della Bitta, who left this comment in response to “Tell me what your chosen fruit or vegetable would be and why.” (99 comments!)

“I would choose the lemon! Lemons are a huge part of our daily health routine. I juice lemons and add them to my water upon wakening to stimulate the liver and rid my body of toxins. Lemons are used in my soups, lemon zest in chicken dishes, lemon slices added to our water and tea. I also use lemon juice in the summer to add natural highlights to my hair; I even use it as part of a honey face mask I use for brightening. Lemons are pure sunshine and such a happy, healing fruit!”

——

The THREE winners of my “Spring Fever, Killer Bee Honey” giveaway are: Corine Runnion, renee cariglia, and Jaci Chambers, who left these comments in response to “Share what you would do with not one, but THREE jars of killer-good honey.” (631 comments!)

Corine: “I would make some honey boy cookies, and some honey whole wheat bread, use in ice tea, so many wonderful things to use honey in.”

renee: “I would donate those 3 jars of Organic Killer Bee Honey to St. Vincent’s Food Pantry, located in Reno’s downtown district, which witnesses homeless people …”

Jaci: “I love my matcha green tea in the afternoon to get me through the rest of the day, and I always sweeten it with honey! I actually replace almost all of the sugar in any recipe with honey, so it is a major staple in my household!”

Winners!!! Giveaways: Comin’ Up Roses

In the Feb/Mar issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Comin’ Up Roses,” I led you here to my daily journal for a chance to win some special giveaways. Following, you’ll find the winners of all five giveaways. Thank you to all who participated by leaving comments, and stay tuned for more giveaways in each issue of MaryJanesFarm. If you’re not yet a subscriber to MaryJanesFarm, subscribe here for $19.95/year.

The winner of my “Milk Cow Kitchen, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Barbara Johnson, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about the farmgirl you would gift it to who either has a milk cow or dreams of having one.” (397 comments!)

“I hate to say this, but, I’d give it to … me. 🙂 I’m a grandma of 5 and I always wanted a milking cow … preferably a miniature one. That would be a perfect size for me to handle and for the grandkids to learn all about cows. The book would help me to convince my husband. I’d leave it in places where he would find it at random times: in the refrigerator, near the remote, on the passenger seat of our car, and of course, the bathroom. Who knows? … if I do that, maybe he’ll think getting a milking cow would be his idea! One can wish, can’t one?”

——

The winner of my “Revomax, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Honey, who left this comment in response to “Tell me one thing you do to conserve water.” (330 comments!)

“I have a raised-bed garden with drip irrigation, purchased an HE washer, only run dishwasher when it’s full, wash only large loads of clothes, and turn the water off when brushing our teeth. These items would be so great to win—my job is as an itinerant braillist, so I travel from school to school in our rural area to assist students. A good-quality water vessel like Revomax would be essential to my day.”

——
The winner of my “BabyLit, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Terri Hopler, who left this comment in response to “Share with us the title of the book you’re currently reading.” (239 comments!)

A Homemade Life [Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table] by Molly Wizenberg.”

“Love your magazine. Can’t wait for it to come. A fresh cup of coffee, a slice of pecan pie (my absolute fave), and the latest edition of your magazine. What could be better?”

——
The winner of my “Love Pillows, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Cheri Hanschu, who left this comment in response to “Share with us the last place you drew a heart. Was it at the end of a letter, a post-it in your child’s lunchbox, a love note you left your sweetie? Tell us WHERE!” (109 comments!)

“I just sent a letter to my daughter … I always write her name followed with an exclamation heart!”
