Plant Lady

Marcin and I had some much needed family time and a great opportunity to travel out of the city. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side so much of our time was spent indoors. I feel like the constant change in weather has made me a bit sick so I’m currently cuddled on the couch in my comfiest pjammies brewing some tea and cursing out my weak immune system. Just last week I pulled a muscle in my foot which still hasn’t healed, causing me to waddle like a penguin 😒 So as I’m sitting here I remembered we brought potting soil for some plants that were starting to look frail and while I watered them as they needed it didn’t seem to perk them up so today I took the time to add some fresh soil hoping they will revive. I had the Golden Pothos for a year already, the Snake Plant (sansevieria) I brought towards the end of last summer and Haworthia succulent plant I had for 2 years (I think). I am hoping these plants continue to live so I can add more to the plant family!

Planting Herbs In Brooklyn

In reguard to Earth Day (yesterday)  I decided it would be perfect timing to plant my herb seeds I purchased at Home Depot two weeks ago. I picked up my favorite herbs I often use for cooking, cilantro is my all time favorite for garnishing,sage,parsley for my mushroom medely recipe and basil well just for future receipes that call for such. The only challenge now is making sure my plants and herbs get the nutrients and much needed sunlight living in an apartment in Brooklyn although I’d like to think it will last summers succulent plants didnt hold up well :-/
