We took a break from art projects this week to do some indoor planting.
I saw this idea in a Lowe’s mailer and loved it, plus it looked like fun for little people.
I got soil, plants, gravel, and charcoal at Walmart.
I thought my son would enjoy helping me plant a little garden in this big jar.
First goes in the gravel and soil…
After a layer of activated charcoal (to prevent fungi) he planted the succulent plants in the jar. Then he added some more pebbles and some river rocks around the plants. I also found some small shells for him to add in.
I love seeing the layers through the glass.
We planted three more tiny plants in glass jelly jars.
The great thing about succulents is that they don’t need much water at all, sort of like cactus.
I save glass jars so my cabinets are stuffed with them. This is a sweet gift idea and a great way to recycle some of my jars.
Here on the home front, my sweetie Knox has been battling an infection in his left ear and is now on a 2nd antibiotic, plus my oldest daughter has a dislocated kneecap! She’s such a big help to me around here, so it’s been a strain to try and do without her. And guess whose throat is starting to have a swollen scratchy feeling? Yep, that would be me. We always seem to be bombarded with ailments this time of year!
I hope you’re having a good week so far and feeling well, thanks for coming by!
