Green Tip: Grow Your Own Herbs
A small indoor herb garden adds life to your kitchen and fresh herbs are like a summer breeze into winter recipes.

Basil, thyme, oregano, sage, and parsley are easy ones, but try what you like to cook with. You can plant them in almost any vessel but make sure that pots have drainage holes so that the roots don’t drown. Give them as much sunlight as you can and keep the soil moist and snip (from the top down) to enjoy.

And for what you do not eat you will find that herbs lend themselves gracefully to ikebana. Many herbs have strong branches with wonderful twists and turns. Their leaves can be beautifully textured and are usually fragrant. The ikebana arrangement with herbs can look AND smell good.
