    Yeah... my wife had a bunch leftover from her days as Children's Minister. To me, everything is a tool of unintended use. MacGyver was my hero!

    I'm surprised that slightly moist doesn't result in some rotting, but okay...

    Hey jim, when you run out of gum containers you can use plastic easter eggs. I just packed a few cephs and used them, they seem to be pretty good for larger plants. I wonder what the recipiant is going to think.
