Like to dry your own herbs and make your own spice blends? Then, start saving the lids off of your Parmesan cheese bottles. They’re a perfect fit for regular-mouth canning jars.
While on our way to a yard sale Saturday, we passed a curb pile of yard trimmings, which included a bunch of iris bulbs. Not one to pass up free flowers, I had my husband turn around, so I could grab them. I now have about two dozen irises to get in the ground, and they’re in a beautiful pale pink that I didn’t have yet. I don’t understand why dividing flowers has to mean throwing away the extras, but it worked out well for me.
