The herbs are going well in my Edible Landscape so I thought I’d take a few cuttings & try to root them in my kitchen window. I have a repurposed short, squatty, wide-mouth glass jar that I can use.
But I’ve always heard that when you’re rooting cuttings, a see-through jar can cause problems. It’s said that inside the jar should be dark. A dark jar keeps algae from growing in the water and also helps the roots do their thaaaang.
Some suggestions are to paint the jar or to wrap it in scrapbooking paper or something similar. Hummm…
So what did I decide to do? Say it with me kids: “Use Whatcha Got!” That’s right. 🙂 Check out this Homestead Hack.
I make quick & easy denim baskets using repurposed denim from old worn jeans. You can use them as a cute country-themed centerpiece, as part of your home’s décor or even as cute gift bags. And it takes only sewing three straight lines. If I can do it, anyone can!
