Life on the Balcony. Fern lives in California and I've followed her blog for awhile now and have met her in person a couple of times. She writes a great blog with lots of inspiring small space gardening ideas. She's got so many of them that Timber Press asked her to write a book about them! Small Space Container Gardens comes out in January 2012. I can't wait to see it!
No, I'm not giving away a balcony. Or a rooftop. I'm reminded of some friends who insisted that I was selling my grandma's garage several years ago, when she allowed me to hold a garage sale at her condo. In that particular circle of friends, she's now known as Grandma Garage. There was some amusing repartee involved and perhaps "you had to be there," but take my word for it - a fun time was had by all.

The Rainforest Garden. Steve lives in Florida and I haven't met him in real life (yet), but when I do (and I'm certain I will), I know it will be like running into an old friend (even though I'm old enough to be his mother). Steve got married earlier this year and he and his wife have a balcony garden, although I think Steve does most of the gardening on it. As you might guess, Steve grows a lot of tropicals.

Gardening by the Book. As I said in my review, it's a sweet memoir of her first year as a rooftop gardener. I somehow ended up with two hardcover copies of My Garden, the City and Me and I don't need two of them so one lucky reader will win the extra one.
All you have to do is go to my review on Gardening by the Book and find the answer to this question:
to Helen's London rooftop garden?
Come back here and leave a comment with your answer. I'll collect the comments, then publish them all at once at the end of the giveaway and randomly choose a winner from all the correct answers. I'll accept entries until midnight EDT this Sunday, August 28, 2011, so don't delay! Enter NOW!
Thanks to Timber Press for providing both copies of this book, allowing me to share one with a reader.
