Chris McDiarmid won the Heirloom Tomato Seed Collection.  That’s good, because her favorite vegetable to grow is the tomato.

We picked our two winners at random from the 94 entrants who all left a comment on our blog naming their favorite vegetable to grow.  Tomatoes were the top choice, with the second pick probably being Sugar Snap peas.  But entrants named vegetables as varied as sorrel and bitter melon, with more well known choices like cucumbers and zucchini also making an appearance.  See all of the comments in the original post here.

Thanks to Botanical Interests for providing the seeds and thanks to everyone who participated!
