Free Proven Winners Gardener's Idea Book

Free 2022 Proven Winners Gardener’s Idea Book

Signups are now open for the free 2022 Proven Winners Gardener's Idea book. I feel like a fraud requesting this freebie since I don't have much of a green thumb. I swear the last time I went to buy a plant, a few of them verbally shouted “nooooo, don't let him pick us!” while inching their pots deeper onto the shelf.

However, if you're not a plant serial-killer like me, then this freebie will contain tips & ideas on great way to get ready to garden this spring.

These booklets are set to ship in late March 2022, but supplies are limited so you should signup today. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

So mom's who buy stuff for their families are almost always offered freebies πŸ™‚

As somebody who recently bought herb and vegetable seeds to grow in a window garden, I really hope I get a few of those Back to Roots freebies. Worst case, I end up killing my plants, but use the freebie on my hair roots!


Free Ducks Unlimited Decal

Free Seed Card

Free Wildflower Seed Card

Arm & Hammer is giving away a free wildflower seed card to the first 155,000 people to sign up. They're only at 85,000 right now, so you've got a little time.

Seed cards are basically biodegradable business cards with little seeds in them. You then plant the card, the paper breaks down into plant nourishment through a complicated process that one scientist referred to as “no comment Goob, stop calling my home phone,” and then a few months later you've got a free plant!

You might have to copy and paste the link for it to work, so here ya go.

Your free seed card should arrive in 4-6 weeks.

Free Yellowstone Trip Planner

Free National Park Trip Planning Kits

Today I found these free National Park trip planners for places like Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Grand Canyon, Black Hills, and more! These are great freebies to pair with your next free National Parks Admission day trips!

These guides include trip planner publications, park maps, email newsletters, and travel information and deals from their preferred travel partners. Some of the parks offer unique travel guides on road tripping to visit them. For instance, the Yellowstone guide includes places to check out while driving from Salt Lake City, Chicago, or Denver.

According to National Park Trips, each guide should include the following:

  • Our favorite road trips to the parks launching from cities with major airports and other popular launching points. Some road trips include itineraries for multiple parks.
  • Overview of national park entrances and their closest gateway towns.
  • Basic national park maps so you can get your bearings.
  • Guides to lodging inside the parks
  • Wildlife-watching field guides.
  • Itineraries of the best things to do in the parks.
  • A packing list
  • Park entrance fees
  • And more

Ohhh, I love “and more!”


NASA send name to Mars for free

Send Your Name to Mars

This cool offer from NASA has returned!

You can now sign up to have your name sent to Mars on the next robotic rover. According to their FAQs, our names will fly on a future NASA mission to Mars in the mid-2020's.

Some Hiffers sent our names on the 2017 InSight rover and/or the Mars 2020 rover. According to my Galactic Law Degree, that means we already have squatters rights on Mars. I call dibs on that hill over there!

While this is cool and all, I hope to be making posts for free trips to Mars before all is said and done.
