Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Urban Homesteading Gift Basket Extravaganza

I thought I'd round out Urban Homesteading Giveaway Week with a gift basket of sorts. You've got the rain barrel, the fruit trees, books on chickens and canning and a composter to contend for. But, what about something to satisfy the urban homesteader in more ways than one?

The Giveaway
Today's giveaway gift basket includes:

1. The book that (sort of) started it all:
The Urban Homestead: Your Guide to Self-sufficient Living in the Heart of the City, by Kelly Coyne and Eric Knutzen. Plus, they are being harassed by them who shan't be named and, therefore, must be supported.

2. Subscription to the mother of Urban Homesteading:
A one year subscription to Mother Earth News, which has been writing about urban homesteading longer than some people have been living it.

3. Subscription to Urban Farm Magazine:
A one year subscription to Urban Farm because it's, well, about urban farming.

4. A $30 gift card for seeds n' stuff:
Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds has the best damn heirloom seeds available out there. And, you can't be an urban homesteader if you aren't planting stuff, now can you?

How to enter
If you are interested in entering the random drawing for this gift basket extravaganza, please add your name to the comments of this post. You have until midnight PST this Friday, February 25th to enter. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!

Make sure you check out the other giveaways going on this week:

Win a Soilsaver composter
Win a Raintree Nursery $50 gift certificate
Win a swanky looking rain barrel
Win the books, Keeping Chickens and Canning & Preserving

Note: There are affiliate links in this post.

Thanks for your early info on the UH TM issue and for this giveaway.
I am in a condo in Chicago and doing more veggies and making soap, but I never thought of myself as an urban homesteader. But I do now since I became part of this welcoming and supportive community that sprang up literally overnight.
Thanks. Mary

P.S. Just signed up for Mother Earth so if I win that I will pass for another entrant.
