Gift Ideas For Gardeners

Welcome to the most hectic time of year. I have to confess to a secret dread of the days between Thanksgiving and New Years Day. It always seems to come with not enough money in the checking accout and never enough time to spend with friends. Some years I just want to throw up my hands, take a drive into the mountains, and hide there until it all goes away. Needless to say, my generally sane nature prevents me from acting on this urge.

So with Christmas three weeks away, most of us are well into our holiday shoppng. Since I write about gardening and herbs, I thought I’d give you a few gift ideas for the gardeners on your list. Those of you who receive my Twitter or Facebook posts will recognize a few of these. If you don’t get my Facebook or Twitter posts, just look me up at “herbncowgirl” and join the fun.
