DIY Jute Carafe and Glass Set

No Comments 21 April 2010

An easy way to add an element of green to your table is to create a covering made from a natural fiber cord such as jute or hemp. Jute is 100% biodegradable and requires little to no chemicals for production.
I picked up a cute little set of 4 juice glasses and a matching carafe at a local second hand shop. If you want your set to be eco friendly try your second hand shops, stuff you already have or look into sets made of recycled glass (an ever-growing industry).

Supplies

Carafe/Pitcher + glasses
Scissors
Glue gun + glue sticks
8mm Jute Cord (5 ½ yards for the carafe, 1 yard/glass)

Directions

Glue one end of the 5-½ piece of cord to the base of the Carafe. Leave a little bit of the end unglued so that you can later point it upward and wrap the cord over it as you secure it around the circumference of the Carafe. I also started mine slightly above the actual bottom of the carafe so that it does not touch the table surface. This is optional.
Continue to lay down about 3 inches of glue in the desired path of the cord. Keep snaking it around until you get to the end. You should be able to pull up part of the glued down cord with the end of a pair of scissors and tuck the raw end of the cord into it so that it is hidden.
Repeat the same steps with the glasses.

You’re done! Now you have the perfect set to serve wine or water in to your guests!

Grow An Herb Garden In Your Kitchen

No Comments 21 April 2010

Those of you who read my other blog Sketch42 know that all year long I have been on a quest to eat local and organic food. (And this was before Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution!) You also know that IT AINT EASY! By mid-Feburary my family was quite sick of butternut squash, cabbage and apples…. Thankfully, Spring is here and I will soon be planting my garden in New Jersey. But this year, I will also be planting another garden. A little herb garden on my window sill.

Michael Pollan author of In Defense of Food, Food Rules and The Omnivore’s Dilemma (just some light reading about the current abysmal state of the industrial food system) lists growing your own food as the GREENEST thing you can possibly do.(Keeping Shabbat is also on his list!!!)  It’s also the healthiest food you will ever eat.

Here are the instructions for setting up your own herb garden:

1. You need one large pot, or a few smaller pots.

2. Put gravel or rocks over drainage hole.

3. Fill pot with soil mix – to 1” from top of pot

4. Use an organic fertilizer and mix in with soil

5. Scatter herb seeds on surface

6. Cover with soil according to directions on packet (some herbs seeds should not be covered)

7. Water well, but with a light touch

8. Keep watered

9. Seeds germinate in 7 – 21 days, depending on species (see seed packet for more information)

10. Grow in a sunny spot. They need between 4-6 hours of sunlight a day.

Herbs That Grow Best Indoors:
Parsley
Mint
Chives
Rosemary
Cilantro
Oregano
Sage

Tips For Successful Herbs:

- Light requirements: 6 hours in a sunny window for most herbs, 4 is OK for rosemary, mint, and parsley.
- You could also use a grow light. It should be approximately 16 inches above the plants and needs to be on for 12 to 14 hours to provide the equivalent of 6 hours sunlight. It looks like a fluorescent light tube.
- Drainage: All herbs require especially good drainage. The containers must have drainage holes on the bottom, and Leda recommend adding additional perlite or sand to a commercial potting soil mix (1 part perlite or sand to 3 parts mix).
- Watering: Overwatering is one of the most common mistakes people make when growing herbs indoors. The surface of the soil must be allowed to dry to a depth of 1-inch before watering, and then it should be a good, deep watering (until water flows through the drainage holes).
- Feeding: Herbs should be fed once a month with a half-strength organic fertilizer such as fish emulsion.

OR… You can buy ready made kits that make it super easy to grow your own herbs.
These kits also make great gifts!

2. Garden in a bag - $9.00 These are so cute.
3. Self watering pots… Keeps plants watered for 7-10 days!
4. Indoor Culinary Herb Garden Starter Kit – This kit has every spice you could want!

5. Indoor Garden Kit: Thyme Herb Kit $9.99

I really encourage you to plant a garden where ever you can!
