Toolsday Giveaway: Win Pennington Seed Fertilizers

Last Toolsday, we posted a photo of a blue machine with two things on the side that look like Mickey Mouse heads  –  to win our prize, we asked you to tell us what the machine is used for.  You’re a very smart bunch of DIYers, because most all of you knew that it was a paint can mixer.  

We randomly picked two winners out of all last week’s comments and those lucky people are Joyce from Manchester, Iowa and Ritchie from Denver, CO, who both answered correctly. Congrats, you both have exactly one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Have you got a honey-do list the length of your arm and don’t know where to begin?  We’ve compiled a list of some of the most common household fixes and put together easy step-by-step instructions so you can get the job done. We’ve covered plumbing tasks like toilet repair and clogged drains; how to unstick a stuck window, how to replace a cracked tile, and even how to fix furniture that your dog chewed up.  

Next Tuesday, one  lucky winner will receive a combo pack of Pennington Seed’s Smart 1 Feed System. The pack consists of complete line of long-lasting (up to 8 months), specialty premium fertilizers designed for efficient feeding, proper nutrition and healthy plant growth. The line is customized for differnet growing environments, plant types and application needs, thus taking the guesswork out of mix selection.

To win the Pennington Seed fertilizer combo pack, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what tradesperson uses this device and for what.  You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, July 24, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until July 24, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Pennington Seed fertilizer.
Official Rules.
