Free friday - grow
A few weeks ago I planted an avocado pit (for a tutorial see here) and look at my new plant now! I'm growing my own avocado tree, wow!
Another handy plant (on the left): aloe vera. I bought a small one (the bigger, the more expensive) and it grows really quick. When you have a (sun) burn or dry skin, cut off a leaf and you have an instant ointment (the juice comming out) at your disposal.
Did you know lavender also works great on burns? I have an lavender bush in my garden and when needed, I cut some flowers, grind them and put them on the burn, cover with a bandage and it'll give a quick pain relief. Lavender oil works even greater (but not always at hand).
