FACE SIX BLYTHBVILIJS, (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL G, '19<13 BETTER HOMES Grow Your Own Herbs This Year It's "Vegetables .for Vitality, for Victory" this year, of course. But don't overlook the importance of Variety. And don't forget that~if we may use Cockney dialect to make, our point ,— 'erbs 'elp lo h'overcome 'utndrum monotony h'in the kitchen. GUI' ploiieer forebears had a high respect for them and carried seeds or plants to their new homes in far places. Now, when we are relearning (with real benefit) many old-fashioned, time-tried ways of living, home gardeners should Include some herbs in their plantings, no matter how smnll or larse. Even one plant will yield a worthwhile crop of leaves or sprigs, a few at a time; n dozen will generously serve a family and provide a dried .surplus for making gifts that will be gleefully welcomed. Herli grotying has real advantages. Sub-average ferlile soil is actually boiler limn rich ground. Seeds of some kinds start slowly, but established plants need little care and less moisture than most vegetables. In general they like, lots of sunlight. Using little space,! they can be grown right by the door at the window. If it isn't convenient to grow your own you can buy a few plants or clumps and set them out. Most herbs arc deco- ,rative as well as useful; since they are used a bit, at,a time, a window box planting or a row edging a garden bed or border can supply your culinary needs while helping to beautify your surroundings. -The most important factor in using herbs .is restraint, a delicate touch. Whether you are. using one kind or a. mixture, add it to a dish or a drink as cautiously as you would - add a strong color in inaking a delicate paint shade. Individual tastes differ, so don't worry if your most satisfying results disagree with other folks' recipes. Herb cookery is largely experimentation -—gastronomic gambling, you might say, but with nothing to lose and the odds all in your favor. —from American Home Caliinets and New Sink Cost Home Only $4 LITTLE HOCK, April G.—For Si a new kitchen . sink and cabinets were .installed 'in thVhbme ol-Mr.- and Mrs. Tyrol Ponder, New'. Hope, according to Mrs. Myrtle Watson, Union County home demonstration agent. Doing all the work, the Ponders paid S3 for a used porcelain sink ,and 51 for locks and handles for ' the cabinets. They used lumber, glass, pipes and paint already on hand. Tile cabinets arc painted white and the drawers are lined with 1 wallpaper. There are double doors under the sink, enclosing shelves for. cooking utensils; two bins for flour and meal; three drawers for silverware and towels, and two upper cabinets with glass doors for dishes and glassware. Waste water from the sink is piped into the garden.
