A Gardener's GIVEAWAY~ Hand-carved Garden Dibble

Dear friends,

I love everything about Christmas! From decking the halls to decorating the tree, baking, visiting with loved ones and finding quiet time to reflect on the magic of the season. I especially love finding that just right gift for those I love.

Got Gardeners in your group of family and friends?  I'm pleased to introduce you to a new blog friend and fellow FarmMade shop keeper, Rob of Bebas Garden Blog!

" I am a backyard farmer, ( farmboy at heart ) architectural designer and furniture maker. Growing my own organic food is important to me as is working in my garden with proper and well built tools. That's why I started designing and making my own hand crafted tools and garden accessories out of reclaimed lumber. My philosophy is based on old world craftsmanship, I believe tools should be well built, functional and aesthetically pleasing. My pieces are built one at a time and built using only hand tools whenever possible. I also design and create plans for garden projects such as greenhouses and sheds. "

Rob shared his hand carved garden dibble's a few posts back on  the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop and I just knew I had to come back and share them again when it came time for Christmas shopping and my next giveaway! That's right! Rob is offering one lucky DANDELION HOUSE reader the chance to win one of his hand crafted dibbles.
 Each one is a work of art!

 What is a dibble?

The pointed body dibbles work well for planting seeds and making small furrows in the soil and comes in three sizes:

Large (1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 8") - for planting larger seeds and all round use.
Medium (1-1/8" x 1-1/8" x 6") - for use in the greenhouse or garden for transplanting seedlings.
Small (3/4" x 3/4" x 4") - for making small holes in soil blocks or seedling trays for starting seeds.
I had never seen or heard of a dibble before reading Rob's post. I'm all for any garden tool that is hand made, re- purposed and sturdy enough to last a life time ( or two ) of gardening seasons. As a greenhouse grower myself I can hardly wait to order mine for the coming planting season. No more pencils, thumbs or pinkies for making holes in my seeds trays or direct sowing!

 I'm going with the dibble from now on!
Pop over and say hello to Rob and follow his blog!
 Please join DANDELION HOUSE if your a new visitor
  For a chance to win one of his fine crafted dibbles either for yourself or a garden friend leave a comment at the end of this post! 
We'll announce the lucky winner next Tuesday.

 The winner will be able to choose which size they would prefer.
