Inge, you are so kind!

The runner up was Heather Staas! I just sent her a moosage. Thank you again, Inge! ♥

I'll be sending you each a PM ("Purple Moosage"). Please reply by Sunday to claim your prize!



Awesome! Thank you!
I replied to your Moosage this morning, but that was just the second Moosage I've ever sent, so just let me know if I did it wrong & I can try again, if needed

Received mine this morning, as well. The timing is perfect since the next few days are forecasted to be cold & wet... Ideal for staying inside and reading.

I'm so glad it made it to you both! If you like it, maybe you can write a review here on permies (https://permies.com/wiki/124879/Edible-Paradise-Vera-Greutink), saying "I give it _#_ out of 10 acorns" (10 being high, 1 being horrible). You could also post a review on the amazon page for the book--reviews always help people decide whether or not to buy a book!

Thanks!

I read in Vera's book, that urine is great for watering plants, as a fertilizer. But why plants and lawns die when dogs pee on them?

My grandma told me when I was young that a dog can pee in the yard until it goes into its first heat.  Male dogs didn't kill the grass according to my grandma, who was very particular about her yard.  She thought it had something to do with hormones.
 
That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
