Gardening has some very "rich" rewards.
"Fruit" for my efforts
Sense of pride
But the best part of gardening, is the ability to share my "fruits" with others. Last evening, I attended a dinner with fellow church members and wanted to take a gift for the lovely hostess. And it occured to me, why don't I take some produce to her?
Besides, I have an abundance:
And I picked half of the green beans.
But how could I make it pretty? Packaging that really sets off most gifts. What doesn't look better in a pretty container? So, I pulled out a pie box. Wrote a simple note to the hostess on the top of the box.
Then lined each compartment with parchment paper and picked out my best tomatoes and green beans.
Closed carefully and tied a pretty ribbon around the box.
I wanted to convey my thankfulness for the dinner invitation and hopefully, I achieved my goal.
