Sprouts

Some of these classic Mother's Day gifts I will
never tire of. Little cups with seeds
ready to plant. We put them in the soil and
added water on Mother's Day afternoon.
Maybe by summer we'll have some tomatoes!
Thank you, Alex!

  2. This is what I miss most about homeschooling. No sweet child-made Mother's Day gifts. :( I think I just may have to come up with some ideas and offer a class next year.

  18. That is a cute pot and the sprouts look like they are very happy campers.

    I do not know if you have heard about this trick and I think I saw it somewhere on the Home and Garden channel but it is to cover the holes of the pots with old nylons so that you keep all the little critters out of the pot. I did notice that the pots that I covered the holes did better then the ones that I did not. I also noticed that it really helps to keep the earwigs out so they do not eat the roots.

    I hope you gets lots and lots of tomatoes this year. Last year I only grew cherry tomatoes but this year I am going for the larger sized tomatoes. I hope they work out okay. Mine are sprouting up too. Maybe I better go buy some cherry tomatoes just in case.

    God bless.

  19. I love those gifts too. Your sprouts reminded me of a new-to-gardening- friend. She planted, indoors, tomato seeds in JANUARY...in WISCONSIN. She said that by June, they looked like leggy green spaghetti noodles. I've learned that if I want tomatoes, start with a plant. I hope yours do well, they are off to a well loved start!

  21. Yes those are truly mother's day items. The tomatoes will mean so much more now that they came from him.
