Because we can't eat flowers
This year my husband played gardener, and it was surprising to see how the vegetables grew. According to the books from the library he read, the secret is good amount of Sun (at least 6 hours a day), good irrigation (he purchased a timer and watered the plants twice a day), fertilizer, and a good local nursery that sells the plants adapted to your area's climate. So after a few weeks, we were able to collecting potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, lettuce, watermelon and strawberries( in a very limited space). So when too much of the same thing was growing, we started to give them away. But who wants to get a head of lettuce, tomatoes and strawberries in a plastic bag? So I wrapped them in clear plastic and tissue paper, and made a nice bouquet. It is a multi purpose gift, because it is a beutiful bouquet, that can fill your plate, that fills your stomach, that gives you plenty of nutrients, and it is organic. Like the idea but don't have a garden? Just go to the grocery shop and make your own salad bouquet. I bet it is going to impress anyway.
