Meet rosemary, the best evergreen shrub for those not so gifted with growing plants of any kind.
I went to the front yard, snipped a healthy handful of stems from the perennial rosemary bush, stuck them in water to keep it fresh until it was time to cook dinner and guess what?
The bunch that got away from the baked rosemary chicken dish eventually propagated.
So delightful when plants thrive without being so needy which puts the rosemary and, why not throw in the no-nonsense, cactus, great plants for the lame gardener like myself. 🙂
Well, hey now, off subject, day two of the New Year, 2015.
Happy New Year!!
Of course, uh, must not forget…my New Year’s intention:
To think less throw aways, or basically finding ways to reuse waste that normally gets tossed into the trash without a second thought.
I am so guilty.
Look at all the stuff that normally gets the boot to the trashcan!
Time to give less to the wastebasket and give more useful life to the throw aways.
A second chance.
This week, I hope to freshen up those discarded food tin cans with some old spray paint containers found hanging around doing nothing in the garage, then, with a little potting soil, plant those newly rooted rosemary stems.
In what creative ways do you manage reducing waste in your home?
