I’ve thought long and hard about this post because it exposes me for something that, especially around here in CVille, could vilify me: yes, I’ve bought baby food. Occasionally, as we are starting solids, my son has had a jar here and there. And these jars, they are just so cute! Recycling them in the bin just seemed a waste. So I decided to see if I could grow herbs and plants in them. Above, is the result. These were seedlings that I transferred into the jars a few weeks ago.
They also make for cute flower containers. These ranunculus were on their way out; I cut them down and gave them a few extra days.
Wrap them in parchment paper, tie with some twine and you have a perfect birthday gift. It’s my grandmother’s birthday today, so the above goes to her, the best gardener (and nicest person) I’ve ever known, whose always been an expert at miniature arrangements.
