Our lives are lived in the kitchen, measured in cups of flour and sticks of butter and shared with friends, family, and furry creatures. But this week, we delved into a different kind of life in the kitchen — plant life. And we asked Abbye Churchill, herbalist and co-author of A Wilder Life: A Season-by-Season Guide to Getting in Touch with Nature, to be our green guide.
She shared her picks for the hardiest herbs to grow indoors and the best air-purifying plants to keep you breathing easy. She also brought us back to our elementary school days with a post about growing plants from kitchen scraps, and ended the week with a groovy look at grow lights.
