It’s hard to believe that it is finally spring. Hopefully we will start to see more of the spring-like weather this week! For those of you who have been following us for a while, you know that our garden is a big part of our spring, summer and even fall. We started a raised bed garden several years ago and really enjoy all of our hard work when things start to bloom.
Because it is spring, it is also time to start thinking about teacher appreciation. Graham has such wonderful teachers that go way above and beyond for him and his classmates every single day. I know that they are overworked and underpaid and I would love to send them on a luxury vacation. Instead, they have to settle for hand crafted goodies that are full of love and thought. I was recently introduced to the new Miracle-Gro Gro-ables Seed Pods which are amazing on their own, but they sparked an idea! Why not give the people who are responsible for helping my son grow so much a little gift to grow themselves? The new Gro-ables Seed Pods are perfect for gift giving because they are not messy, include everything needed and are perfect for people who have no green thumb!
This all-in-one Seed Pod contains a non-GMO seed placed at the proper depth in the pod, growing materials, and slow release plant food. All you have to do is remove the pod’s top, push it down into loosened soil until the pod top is level with the soil’s surface, and keep it moist. You do not have to cover the pod’s top with soil. Because the Gro-ables Seed Pod has everything it needs, you are sure to have a healthy plant! They are guaranteed to grow of your money back. You can purchase the Gro-ables individually for about $1.50 or get them in a pack of 6 at a retailer near you.
Now you can have an adorable and thoughtful teacher gift for less than $2 when you use my free Spring Teacher Gift Printable. Just download the tag template, print, cut, and glue onto the side of an empty jar (salsa jars work great). Place the Gro-ables Seed Pod inside and seal with the lid. I also added a pair of cute garden gloves in order to fill the jar. The hardest decision you will have is choosing which Seed Pod to use. I think herbs are always a great way to go, but then again, who doesn’t like a good tomato?
What will you grow? I’m off to find a few watermelon and pumpkin Seed Pods!
