My herb plants were getting too big to still be sitting in their disintegrating peat pucks, so I knew I needed to replant them. Easier said than done. The hardware store carries a few cheap plastic plant pots, but only much larger than would fit in my kitchen window. I could try to use yogurt containers like I've put the beans into, but we've kinda cooled off towards yogurt for a while I think... The same tub has been sitting in the fridge for about a month now (I suppose I should go check and see if it's green and fuzzy... ). Also, for something on display in my kitchen window, I'd like it to look prettier than a yogurt container. I'm vain about my kitchen.
Also, when I bought our sets of dishes, they came with these 8 ridiculous tiny mugs. We are a coffee loving family... we like our coffee. And we like a lot of it. These little cups hold about half of what my normal mug does. Good if you've got a lot of company I guess and you want the coffee to go further, but frankly I'd rather just make a second pot than get stingy with the good stuff. So we had some never used mugs pushed to the back of our cupboard. See where I'm heading with this yet?
