Homemade Simply shares a touching article about how plants can be passed from one family member to the next through the generations creating a living family heirloom.
As you nurture a plant not only are you taking part in persevering that species but it reminds you of the loving gesture it was gifted to you.
I remember a small tin my grandmother kept in her jewelery box. It held dirt from the family farm before my great great grandmother came to America from Sweden. Sometimes things can help us remember our family roots and the love of generations who passed before us and how it created who we are today.
You could do the same thing with vegetable seeds from your garden.
