worms for Christmas

Post  dstack on 12/23/2014, 7:26 pm

I got one of my Christmas gifts early:  I got red earth worms for the garden! Yes, my Honey knows me well and had worms overnighted from PA. They immediately went to the garden; their new home.  I sure hope they do well!  It'll be interesting to see how well this variety does in South Florida. 


They were ordered from Uncle Jim's Worm Farm

What a wonderfully romantic gift (only someone who loves to put their hands in the garden dirt would think so!)

My honey "gets" me too, it's such a wonderful thing Laughing

Dstack, wonderful!

My husband scratched his head. But I told him that if you get a bag of worms, and you garden, especially in table tops / containers, it's a wonderful, thoughtful gift.

Exactly!  It doesn't sound "romantic", as Audrey put it, but it sure was a "wonderful and thoughtful gift" Sanderson.  Very Happy

One thing you can say about that gift -- it wasn't a thoughtless generic one! It was well-tailored to you.

The gifts that show somebody was really thinking about what you like are often the best ones.

LOL, some of your friends may scratch their heads too.  But it's suited for YOU and that's a wonderful present from your honey!

Sounds like a keeper, DStack!

Let us know how they do in their new home...!

My DH's family thought it weird one Christmas when he bought me a wheelbarrow and put it next to the Christmas Tree.
Even though he is long gone, I think of him every time I wheel it around and thank him for his thoughtfulness. The wheelbarrow has lasted 18 years to date, and looks to last another 18 years. love the idea
