How is the Garden?


Harvest Parsley

Parsley has been doing very well, so we cut a few stems to encourage growth. Our Parsley plant is not as full as we would like it and it is recommended to only harvest about a third of your plant so it can continue to photosynthesize through its other leaves and keep growing. We harvested Dill several weeks ago and when we harvested the whole plant the plant had a difficult time regrowing leaves, so we think there is some truth to this. Mom will be adding this herb to her chicken and lamb wrap today. This is a great way to begin to introduce more fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits to your diet.

MiMi’s Plant Moves

Where we are, Norfolk, VA USA, the heat has been sweltering. One day we found MiMi’s plant completely slumped over. She had dropped all of her leaves in dehydration. We immediately gave her a big helping of water. That day was a hot day. We also had to take her out of direct sun light. It was just too much for her. She has bounced back beautifully. So, never give up on your plants! She lost a couple of leaves. We tried pulling but they will have to be cut because the roots are so deep. Deep roots is a good thing. She will soon need a new pot, which we have ready for her. We are so excited to see her bloom. This is a beautiful flower plant and a wonderful addition to our home. She definitely brightens up the place and sends us good plant vibes as plants do. We can not thank MiMi and Mom enough for bringing a little joy around our home. Mom has grown very partial to the plant as well. She watches her carefully and waters her also. Getting involved with the plants is addictive and easy to do. Be careful once you have one before you know it you will have another.

Over the last several weeks we have been learning a lot about health and food. We are glad you have been enjoying it as much as we have. We have a few surprises in the garden we can not wait to share with you. It is a lot of work, but we think it is well worth it. What plants did you think were going to perish on you but survived? Did you know you should clip dead leaves to encourage plant health and beauty? Have you considered growing Parsley as your first kitchen plant?
