Hey, You should add a bit of raw sugar to the recipe because salt tenda to dry out your hair with repeated use. Sugar helps boosts volume big time.

Spritz it on, load the MTB on the back of the convertible, and drive like you can't wait to get there! My long red locks are perfectly dreaded in long irish dreads by the time I hit the trailhead !

I have had an indoor mason jar garden for a while, and hooray for its cuteness! Unfortunately, many herbs and plants will eventually die and experience root rot if you aren't using VERY well draining soil. ( I recently experimented with mixing sand into all potting soil I use, which enhances drainage). As mentioned by another person, it would be wise to put about 1" of pebbles on the bottom of the jar!

I tried something similar. But I put small pebbles on the bottom of my mason jar to help with water drainage. But mine have started to grow green algae in the pebbles and also a little between the jar and the dirt. Is this normal? will it harm the herbs or should I be worried about using the herbs?

Amazing! I would love to have something like this. But sadly I have no room for that in my flat. Maybe some more ideas for small places? http://wildcity.etsy.com/

I completely agree that gardening in small-spaced city areas is a true challenge. However, as every green thumber knows, nothing is impossible. And this article proves this statement. I like all ideas listed here, especially the one about starting an entire garden from seeds. Very challenging! I offer you my favorite tips for small scale gardening https://medium.com/@jessiealinari/ingenious-gardening-tricks-and-tips-for-decorating-small-spaces-3c971e23dd10. I hope you will like them.

I have three kids and stains are common thing. I am so glad that i have found your blog. It was so helpful last week when my son made the whole window into mud.

Using natural cleaning products is always better than harsh chemicals. But it's important to remember what debra pointed out. Too much acidity can strip away sealers on counter tops. I once dripped lemon juice on my concrete counter top and it burned right through the beeswax sealer, it still has marks on it. And vinegar can ruin wax jobs or the finish on some laminate or cork floors.

It's great idea :D I made already two homemade papers so I'll try with seeds. I tried to place in mine dry flowers, but the paper was stained by them in yellow (can I say that? English isn't my native language D:). I will try again! https://www.etsy.com/shop/wildcity

For those wondering about washing soda, I found this handy: http://naturesnurtureblog.com/ttt-turn-baking-soda-into-washing-soda/ I tried finding washing soda in Target and failed, so made my own. Super easy! 1/4 cup baking soda on a cookie sheet, bake at 400°F for a few minutes.

Heya- Just a passing comment as an ecologist- feeding birds in areas that get real winters (obviously excluding Florida) and migrating birds, putting out bird feeders like these out in the winter actually detours the birds from migrating as they would normally and ends in its ultimate death. Something we call an "ecological trap". Be mindful of this..
Jen -Apr 08, 2015, 11:54PM
Beautiful idea! Looks good and good for birds also! www.safran-bolu.com
