Toolsday Giveaway: Win Garden Weasel Tools

In order to be eligible to win last Toolsday’s (a.k.a. Tuesday) prize, we asked you to guess the identity of a machine press.  We had a lot of correct answers and a lot of almost-not-quite answers. Last week’s mystery gadget was a button maker.  

We randomly picked two winners (we had two prizes to giveaway) from all the comments and those lucky people are Andy Myers, who thought it was a foil seal embosser, and ml wright who just said it was a press.  Congrats Andy and ml, you’ve got one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday one lucky person could win a Garden Weasel five-piece prize pack. The deluxe set includes:
the original Garden Weasel rotary tiller/cultivator;
a Garden Claw – the perfect tool for breaking up heavy clay soil;
a WeedPopper with its patented handy-dandy foot lever;
the WeedPopper Step & Twist – a dandelion’s worst enemy;
and an Edger for sculpting lawns and gardens.
All Garden Weasel tools are easy on the back and the knees, and on beautiful gardens everywhere.   

To enter the Garden Weasel giveaway, look at the photo below then post a comment (click “comment” above) telling us what this dual-purpose, culinary gadget is designed to do. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.
Planning a wedding?  Congratulations.  Let us help you get ready for the big day. We have ideas and instructions for DIY centerpieces, wedding favorscake toppers and more.  Plus, you’ll find advice on photography, saving money, logistics/planning and menu ideas.

On Tuesday, June 5, we will select the winner of the Garden Weasel prize pack then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until June 5, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Garden Weasel tools
