Copper Weather Station
The forecast looks sunny.
This weather station is both handsome and practical (that's an unbeatable combination, right?) and monitors both temperature and humidity using an easy-to-read 4-inch dial with a glass crystal face. Left unattended, the copper will attain a rich, dark patina in outdoor environments. The dial features Weems & Plath's exclusive fourth generation full range precision Japanese coil movement (FR4), and displays both Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The 1-inch diameter hygrometer monitors the exterior humidity when the instrument is placed outdoors, and the swivel arm bracket can be mounted for just the right viewing angle on any window or post.

Our Tips & Stories
How we'd use this beauty in our own homes.
Like houseplants, but better.
This is the ninth in our biweekly series from Amy Pennington – urban farmer, founder of GoGo Green Garden, and author of Urban Pantry and Apartment Gardening – on how to start growing your own food, no matter how tiny your garden-to-be is. Today: Amy gets us started on our herb gardens in outdoor beds and in pots -- with some Destiny's Child lyrics thrown in there, too. Happy May Day! I switched gears this week and decided we needed to chat about herbs instead of intensive gardening techniques. Herbs should be planted now and will really make your kitchen sing. Additionally, this is a great project for anyone with either a yard or a small balcony. Stay tuned next week when we get back on track, but for now, read on so that your kitchens are always stocked and your garden is always in bloom.
This week Margo True, editor of Sunset magazine and The Sunset Cookbook, shares with us the simplicity of fresh herbal tea.
