hits I always think I'm going to plant herbs or something in the garden but
then reality sets in - I'd have to dig in
the dirt, get hot and sweaty and deal with insects. I think not!
ell, these days you can get fresh
herbs in hydroponic 'ish blisterpaks i.e. the herbs are still growing in their plastic packaging in the grocery isle when you buy them.
ractically two weeks ago I bought some potted fresh mint in what is called a Shenandoah grower -
which is simply a little flowerpot in a plastic open top wrap. I was able to start pinching off mint leaves for tea and cooking as soon as I got home and everyday after that.
n fact fast forward two weeks later, my little mint plant is
growing and more shoots have taken the place of the parts that I pinched off every day - I feel like I might have green fingers!
I'm now on a mission to collect some basil, cilantro and parsley growers from my local Walmart -
which is where I bought the mint and the watering of those everyday as they sit on the inside of my windowsill will have to be the extent of my farming activities, think I'll stick to what I know, like this red and white 1 3/4" cocktail ring - looks great on the thumb which is where I wear it.
This glass beaded cocktail ring is perfect for this tankini. I don't know about you but red seems to be a little scarce right now - or is it just me.
show you how to make the above cocktail ring out of wire and glass beads on my blog page. I would give it a 10 out 10 easy to make. It looks especially cool and extravagant worn on the thumb.
Check out my "blog"page on this site for a quick photo reference showing how I made this fabulous ring.
