How to grow a windowsill garden

Culinary Herbs are an excellent choice for windowsills and are easy to grow with children (and they love snipping off a few leaves for your dinner). Herbs Suitable for Indoor Gardening Basil • Coriander • Chives • Parsley • Sage What you will Need for a Windowsill Herb Garden • Grow tubs and pots of varying sizes for growing herbs (in some garden centers you can buy specially designed windowsill planters) • Try recycling old pots, plastic yogurt containers with added drainage holes • Kids love decorating terracotta pots before planting their basic herb garden • Seeds or baby herb plants • A south- or west-facing windowsill is ideal or a north facing window that is quite bright • Soil (that needs to be kept moist) How to Create a Windowsill Herb Garden • Choose your containers (decorate if you like and add drainage holes if recycling) • Choose a saucer to catch excess water • Add soil • Add the baby herb plants • Water well • Label your herbs with their name, or make a garden plant label • Put into a bright warm space • Water when the soil feels dry to the touch • Avoid adding chemicals to culinary plants in your windowsill herb garden 21

10 household tips using everyday household ingredients ‌ Softening Paint Brushes Boil your stiff paint brushes in vinegar for 30 minutes. Allow brushes to cool, remove from pan and let dry. Bristles will be nice and flexible. Barbecue Pest-Free To keep flies away from your BBQ, fill a heat-safe bowl with water and a few drops of lavender oil. Place the bowl on the grill. As the mixture heats, it releases a fragrant scent that flies hate. Clogged Drains Put one or two 1,000 mg vitamin C tablets down a clogged drain and let sit overnight. Flush with clean, hot water. To avoid clogged drains, pour 1/4 cup baking soda down weekly. Rinse through with hot water. Kill unwanted grass / weeds Remove grass and weeds from walk-ways and driveways by pouring full-strength vinegar onto unwanted areas. Reapply on any new growth until plants have starved. Deter Ants To keep ants away, spray vinegar around door and window frames, under appliances, and along other known ant trails. Crayon on wallpaper Remove crayon markings from wallpaper by wiping them off with a paste made of cornstarch and water. Washing Machine Periodically, pour a cup of vinegar in your washing machine and let it run through a regular cycle (no clothes added). This will dissolve soap residue and freshen up the washing machine. Laundry Keep colors from running or fading by immersing garments in full strength vinegar before their first washing. This works great with bathing suits. Cleaning Silver Clean silver by creating a paste of three parts baking soda to one part water. Rub the paste onto each item, then rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Spruce up Lawn Furniture Lawn furniture can be easily cleaned with a rinse of 1/4 cup baking soda in 1 quart warm water. 27
