Saving Money During COVID 19

Parsley Plant Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook


The wonderful thing about growing your own plants and maintaining plants is that they are gifts that keep on giving. Several plants can be feed and harvested time and time again. Many plants will last 2 years are more like this. Your savings will quickly add up with a herbal kitchen plant of your own. Many people simply do not buy fresh herbs because of the cost. After a couple of uses, a kitchen gardener will soon get their money back and then some.

We have grown this beautiful Parsley Plant Organically without any chemicals. While her seeds were not organic, she was grown organically. She has harvested well and stood the test of time. Furthermore, she has a deep as well as rich flavor and is ready to be taken home. You can pick her up locally (Norfolk, VA) and take her home for a $10 donation to Shidonna Raven Garden & Cook’s Garden. When you get her home start outside from your porch and then slowly acclimate her to your kitchen window seal over a 3 – 5 day period. Water her, giver her sun light, refresh her soil periodically and fertilize her with organic fertilizers every week or every other week to continue to feed her the nutrients she needs. Most importantly enjoy! Harvest about a third of the leaves at a time from the outside of the plant. Allow her leaves to grow back and continue to harvest.

COVID 19 causes more to start Gardens

During my recent visit to a local nursery here in Norfolk, VA USA I stuck up a conversation with a staff member. This is not difficult to do when you obviously share common interest. She is a highly knowledgeable gardener with a keen sense of observation. While we started our garden in February, just prior to COVID 19, she stated that people who you would have never seen gardening have begun gardening because of the uncertainty that COVID 19 has struck across the nation and indeed across the world. People have serveral reasons for starting thier own gardens:

  • Promotes social distancing by cutting back on grocery store trips
  • Saves money on ones grocery bill
  • Protects people with underlining conditions from having to go into public
  • Allows people to give food to others
  • Allows people to earn money by selling food to others

If COVID 19 has taught us nothing it has taught us how to be resilient and resourceful and indeed these are all good reasons to start a garden. They were good reasons before COVID 19 and they are better reasons since the pandemic has hit the world. How has the pandemic effected you and your family? How have you coped with the prevailing pandemic? Share your comments with the community by positing here. What have you learned since COVID 19?
