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.


  1. Yes, I think this is an awesome gift for a gardener, especially when it's me! (Ha!) LOVE the presentation, too! Thanks so much!

  2. Lovely gift & so practical! I love the names of the plants, too - very unique.

    Hope you & yours have a Wonderful Easter weekend, Joanie

  3. What a wonderful idea! I must try that one for some of my gardening buddies, too.
    May we all be thankful for our many blessings and friendships. Happy Easter to all.
