Repurposed Old Mailbox

 

I really Love to plant flowers in different containers. Old mailboxes fits the bill for gardening, but this idea is super adorable. I love the color also!! Too bad I don’t have one of these in the store at the moment, but my eyes are open for one!

 

 

Have an awesome day!

Drying Herbs

Happy Wednesday – A few days ago we share an idea on how to grow herbs in your kitchen, today we are showing you how to dry those herbs you’re growing! and don’t forget you can always use them fresh!

 

Air dry –

Drying in the sun or outdoors. Cut the herbs when the dew has dried off them. Tie into a bundle with a rubber band. Keep the leaves and flowers facing downward. Hang somewhere on the porch or off a hanger in a spot that gets full sun. Dry outdoors inside a paper bag. Remove when dried.

 

Oven-dry –

Place herb leaves or seeds on a cookie sheet, 1 inch deep or less. Put herbs in an open oven on low heat – less than 180 degrees F – for 2-4 hours. To see if the herbs are dry, check to see if they leaves crumble easily.

 

Have an awesome day! More soon!

Winston

Everyone that sees Winston in the store just adores him, so I thought that I would start to share adorable (I think anyway) pics of him!

Story on this pic – we were camping and he wasn’t ready to go back to camp, so he decided that if he turned his back on me, he couldn’t hear me! Silly dog!

 

Have an awesome day, and more soon!
