      I just became interested in this plant. Does someone have a few seeds to send me to experiment putting in a pot? Living in Colorado, I wouldn't expect this to ever be an outside plant, so why shouldn't I plant it now inside?

      What a great tip. Thank you so much. I love this site and everyone who contributes is an angel. I am going through my seeds now to see if I can get a plant started indoors. I live in AZ. Thanks, MommaC

      I've always had a soft spot for lambs ear, & knew about the first aid stuff, but never even thought about eating it, or that rabbits & dear didn't like it! So nice to learn something so good! IL be on the hunt, this year - I wonder if it will help keep my house bun out from under my sewing machine...

      Did you know that it also makes a great tea? Steep the crushed leaves in hot water and it creates a warm and yummy hot drink. In the olden days women would use these leaves to reduce menstrual cramps!

      I was thinking of trying this in my yard, I live in NY. You said you are always ripping it out, will it take over a garden or should it be planted in an area by itself?

      i'm almost positive that Walmart and Home Depot sell this plant as a seedling.

      So there seems to be atleast 3 different types - Lambs Ear is about 4" and flowers, Silver Carpet doesn't flower, and Big Ears gets to be 12". I haven't read any differences as far as medicinal properties. They may attract slugs and caterpillars.

      Wow. I have always love to feel the leaves of this plant and was always interested in it but never knew it had so many uses. Now I think I will have to go out and get one to add to my indoor plant collection.

      Like many others I tried killing the darn things - they grow llike weeds here (Van Isle, Canada). Guess I'll be putting them to use instead of compost.

    How to Measure and Install Storm Windows In cold weather, one-third of the heat lost in your home seeps out through gaps in doors and windows. Storm windows create a tight seal, which blocks heat loss. This lowers your utility bills and helps make you more comfortable in the winter. To ensure a tight fit, you need to measure properly for storm windows and install them correctly. Storm Window Types Storm windows fall into two general types: exterior and interior. Exterior storm windows go over your existing home windows. They can alter your home's curbside appeal, but do not affect your home's interior. With exterior storm windows in place, you can still open and close the windows at will. Interior storm windows go on the inside of the windowsill. This makes them invisible from the home exterior but highly visible from inside. With interior storm windows in place,
