Great Giveaway of the Week
To get you in the mood for some spring yard work, this week some lucky listener will win the new Black & Decker 36-volt, lithium-ion Cordless String Trimmer/Edger (model LST136) with automatic feed and fast charging time.
We’re also giving away GreenView GreenSmart Specialty Plant Food to get your garden growing this spring. GreenView plant food is one of Allen’s favorite giveaways because he uses it in his own garden!
