matchstick garden

You don't need a patch of grass to have a garden. Lucky for us, because we don't have one. I'm taken by the cute packaging. My daughter who has already become quite excellent at watering the potted plants (at least the sidewalk and her shoes) will like sticking them into the dirt. Each match tip is full of seeds either Mixed Herb Garden (Basil, Chives, Parsley and Thyme) or Wildflower Garden (Cornflower, Shasta Daisy, Corn Marigold, and Field Poppy). I'd love to use the herbs in a dinner or two. I remember eating carrots, cucumbers and green beans from my fathers garden as a child. Even though we don't have room for a large garden we can still pluck a few herbs and make a nice pasta sauce. In this simple way we can help our kids make the connection between the seed, soil, water, sun and then... our dinner plates.

These have party favor written all over them. I found them for the best price at shopexit9 at $3.25.
