Giving someone flowers is a sweet gesture but if you don't know how to care for them, that sweet gesture won't last more than a few days. I'd come across a few odd tips for how to keep flowers alive longer: adding vinegar to the water, putting a penny in the vase, and bleach were among them. In the interest of not believing everything you read on the Internet, I decided to test them all out on bouquets of roses. You'll be surprised at the simple trick that will keep your flowers alive!

Move aside, Windex!

I'm lucky to have mature fruit trees growing in my yard, but the last of my pears have been harvested, my plums have been stewed and frozen, and I realize I'm just two holidays away from winter. I'm dreaming of warm, savory dishes, preferably made with fresh herbs, which means it's time to bring the garden indoors. I like to stick to a few easy-to-grow basics like the ones on the list below, which offers a hierarchy of the easiest herbs to grow indoors organized by difficulty.
