Good Friday gift
Yesterday I made this Good Friday gift for my friend Angela. Good Friday is historically the day for planting a spring garden so this is a great gift, in my opinion. These are all plants I have grown from seed in Jiffypots and are a combination of Malabar spinach, and several tomato varieties including Celebrity, Big Rainbow, Purple Calabash and Black Cherry. These you won't find at the local seed store.
I placed them in a Styrofoam egg carton and watered them down so they will be ready for her to plant in the ground or in pots. I hope they do well for her. I do love growing plants from seeds. I am getting a little better at it and I hope to improve every year.
Don't you think these make a nice Good Friday gift for a gardener? My daughter said it was kind of like a box of chocolates, but without the calories and a good use of an old egg carton.
Happy Easter! I hope you have a blessed weekend and the weather is perfect for planting.
