I made these for a craft bazaar on Saturday. I saw the idea in the gallery and then wrote the poem myself. There are cellophane windows so you can see the peppermint candies. The left one is the 2-4-6-8 box and the right is the sour cream container. If you use my poem, please include my name.
I once knew a gard’ner who knew how to grow
Striped canes of candy, from under the snow.
I asked her to share her big secret with me,
And this is the answer she gave readily.
“To garden in winter's quite tricky you know,
It takes special care and just the right snow.”
So here are some seeds - you may want to eat,
Or planted just right, grow a candy cane treat!
