On Staying Sane During Winter, Part 1

Today’s post is part one in a series about small things you can do to maintain a modicum of sanity during winter.

Tip #1: Grow plants, any kind you can get your hands on. When I can, I like to trade clippings with friends rather than buy new because that can get spendy. I like it, too, because each plant you’re getting has a story and a history.
