Gifts for the Gardener
I had another Birthday this week and received some great gardening gifts! "The Italian" surprised me, as always. I had given him a list of a few things that I needed for Christmas and he got them for my BD!
One of Eliot Coleman's books that I did not have. This wasn't even on the list!
My first Soil Block Maker....I can't wait to use this!
I've been wanting to make cheese and heard this book has some good recipes.
I really needed a more precise scale for weighing the harvests and cooking. This is a small lightweight inexpensive scale that had good reviews.
I also found a surprise on the front porch!
This pretty box.....
With the cutest card....from my garden helper Sophia! Sophia has been my buddy since she moved here from Ghana. She has a natural talent for gardening and can tend to the plants growing in the basement and greenhouse better then our house sitter when we go away!
What a thoughtful gift! Now I have something to wash my dirty gardening hands with!
