Christmas Tree Smiley Necessity, being the mother of invention, has resulted in a home-made Christmas around here this year.  

Our son & his wife commented that they want to start gardening next year, cuz produce is so spendy anymore, & my daughter & her hubby are planning to make raised beds so they can grow some of their own food.  Our other daughter-in-law already has established veggie gardens, but the price of seeds these days almost need to be budgeted for!  So, I decided to make garden starter gift baskets for them, for Christmas. 

     
I made seed packets, found little baskets at the thrift store, gloves & hand tools were on sale for cheap, & I already had unused peat pots in the garden shed, so each basket cost me less than $5. The seed packets collection is made up of 12 different types of veggie seeds, all that were harvested from my garden or Peggy's garden.  (Thanx, Peg!)

I'm pleased with how the gift baskets are turning out (I'm wrapping them with Christmas cellophane wrap & a pretty bow, just like "real" gift baskets) & I think the kids are going to like them.

(I thought about putting this post in the Hobby section, but putting those seed packets together & looking up the planting & care instructions for each one is a lot of work... something I wouldn't call a "hobby"!)
