I was over at Chips’ house this weekend and, somewhat serendipitously, he ran out of coffee as he was espresso-ing and offered me the coffee-tin to grow a plant in. These days I’m all about the sustainability, so I jumped at the opportunity. Stopping off at a nursery on our way to Durban, I picked up a lovely thyme plant. After nailing a couple of holes in the base of the tin, I added the plant and lo and behold, a handy pot of thyme sitting next to the stove, ready for the next stew we make.
p.s. this is in no way some lame Illy product placement, but they do make nice tins 🙂
