As I said when I announced the free book, one of the commenters would be chosen randomly to receive a copy of The Truth About Garden Remedies. I took a page from Pioneer Woman‘s book and used the generator at random.org. to pick the winning comment. All the comments are numbered as they are received, and comment number 4 was chosen by the random number generator. That was Dee’s comment.
