No doubt there are certain reported health benefits to a little dark chocolate now and then, but maybe this year, an alternative is in order for your loved one.
Here’s a short list of good ones:
*A potted plant – pots of Boston fern, rosemary, African violets, orchids and sweet bay can last a long time if properly cared for and keep the sentiment alive.
*A gift certificate to an upcoming gardening class. Our office is hosting one on April 4th, featuring presentations on perennials, lawn care and vegetables.
*A garden journal for the upcoming season. Our Master Gardeners have produced a fabulous one for the eastern Nebraska region. They’re available at our office, 8015 W. Center Rd., Omaha, NE for $15.
*After a quick look at the garage or potting shed, restocking tools and items with a shelf life such as new gardening gloves, kneeling pad, hose nozzle or trowel.
*Seeds for the veggie and flower garden. See the All America Selection Winners web page https://all-americaselections.org/winners/ for ideas.
