Joan, I've not before heard of Orach or Mizuna.

I said ISU, but it looks like, as you wrote, it's now called U of I.  When I went there many years ago it was called Idaho State College.

Spud, great article from U of I, an excellent source of information.I have never heard of orach.

I've never grown anything in the window to season food with, but I just read this article from the ISU: "Growing Food on Your Windowsill – Microgreens & Babyleaf Greens", and I think I'll try it.

I was surprised to learn that there are over 100 plants that can be grown for greens.  Some are beets (yum), cabbage, kale, mustard, arugula, onion, radish, amaranth, orach, mizuna, cucumber, squash, and carrot greens:

Impressive, Joan. I'm too much of a "throw it in the drawer" type of guy. I do toss my dirty socks in the laundry basket, however!

Well organised, Joan! And the ´steps´ of flowerboxes look very handy

k.h. ky , I don't think it matters when you take them out. I usually do the lilacs right after they finish blooming. That way I don't lose next spring's blossoms. I would cut out the three oldest, raggediest branches right after bloom and until fall. I probably wouldn't cut them in the late winter or early spring so that I wouldn't damage new growth.

Chris, they are beautiful! To have such loveliness inside gives the season a great start.
