This post is not much about Gardening, but more about Food, but may be of your interest since you can grow your own herbs to cook on Thanksgiving (maybe for next year?) besides that are easy to grow, don’t occupy too much space and you can regrow them!
“Memories are deeply tied to scents and this holiday has distinct aromas that often come from combinations of certain Thanksgiving herbs. So, get to know ‘em! Learn where these herbs come from and get tips on how to use more of them in your own cooking.”
In the spirit of using less fuel and supporting local farms and food artisans, we challenge you to try a 100-mile Thanksgiving. A 100-mile Thanksgiving uses ingredients sourced from within 100 miles of your dinner table. Think of it as an opportunity to celebrate local food, rather than an obligation to source every last ingredient from within 100 miles. Food miles, or the amount of miles a certain product has traveled to its final destination, are an important consideration when trying to reduce your carbon footprint and the amount of oil and gasoline used in making a meal.
The season for major gifts is coming, we are less than a month away from Christmas and New Year. Here are some ideas to wrap your presents in a unique way but also reusing materials we usually could throw away. Hope you find them inspirational, I bet you will not need to buy old common paper and ribbons to wrap your presents again!
