Both bathrooms in our 1850s house have wood floors, painted wainscoting and cast-iron tubs. Our budget is limited, but I’d like to update one of the baths by switching the tub for a shower, and replacing a vanity that looks out of place. Any ideas for an affordable update that will keep the period charm?
I’d like to start an organic vegetable garden. Is it too late to plant? I’m a beginner, so what would be the best (as in easiest) plants to grow? The garden is about 12 feet square and gets about 8 hours of sun a day. — Anne T., Croton-on-Hudson
