Plant a Windowsill Garden
Botanicals of all kinds are especially good in kitchens. With easy access to water and sunlight, they are less likely to die than that rubber tree in the corner of your living room and bring beauty and fresh air into the space. Buy a few small pots and a watering tray and grow a batch of herbs to flavor your home-cooked meals. Basil, rosemary, parsley, thyme, chives and oregano are all good choices. Once the plants are larger, consider new ways to display the greenery. Try hanging them from the ceiling or displaying them in wall pockets. You might also try a hydroponic system for fresh greens, a glass terrarium for succulents or a tea garden of chamomile, peppermint and lemon balm.
