We have a winner. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who entered our latest Gardenista Giveaway of a $224 collection of last-a-lifetime digging tools from Garrett Wade (and accessories to sharpen and care for them).

Karlyn Collins, who gardens in Washington State, is our randomly selected winner and will receive a sharp-edged Super Penetration Shovel, a Professional Digging Tool with a serrated blade, and other supplies from Garrett Wade, sellers of fine tools since 1975. She told us, “My biggest digging challenge is trying to dig out the 10-to-12-inch round rocks in my garden. These rocks were left by a glacier and I think grow larger every season.”

Something tells us those tools will be put to good use.
