gifts from the garden
trimming back the potted plants is necessary to keep them healthy as we move through the hot Texas summer. naturally, I keep the trimmings and place them in my kitchen window in jars of water to root. but I don’t really need any new plants, so I’ve been giving some away to family and coworkers.
it’s good karma, in my opinion, to share gifts from the garden.
my little plant-to-go containers are made from junk mail paper. I wrap 2 catalog pages around a small jar, tape the folds to secure and trim the tops. then I add 2 more round discs cut from heavier scrap paper in the bottom of each paper cup, to give it some durability before transplanting the young plant.
then I just tie a scrap fabric band around the paper cup, add a banner made from a toothpick and send the plant on its way.
well, I’m off to the store to get another jar of Mod Podge for my collage project. it is nearly complete and I am very excited about the progress.
happy weekend to everyone🙂 and thank you for reading!
