We all love tips to make our life just a little bit more manageable. As your Dallas Household Tips Examiner I search for tips for myself and pass them along to my readers.

Spring is coming up fast and that means getting your planting started! I love herbs and every year love to start my own from seeds. This year I am going to get an early start and try this new trick I found.

Many herbs, actually, almost all of them, can be started from steeds in a regular mason jar. Chive, rosemary, parsley and thyme, are great choices to start with.

Which ever herb seeds you decide to start with, just follow the package directions for each one. Keep the soil warm and moist for each, and keeping them in full light until seeds germinate is very important. When they outgrow their mason jar, all you have to do us cut them back as needed or re-plant them into a larger pot or even straight into your flowerbed or garden.
