C.L. reacts with horror when she stumbles on a wilted coffee plant in a hotel lobby. This plant recovered once it was watered well and pulled away from the sunny window for a few hours.

Dramm snips on the left and Corona on the right. We have two pairs of each so that there are always some handy near the houseplants, vegetable gardens, flowerbeds or when foraging. These are also good for trimming Cannabis plants.

All sorts of veggies can be mixed into the potato...kale, broccoli, chard, or winter squash are some favorites

You can freeze twice baked potatoes after you put them together. Then they are ready to take out of the freezer and bake when you need healthy comfort food.

People appreciate a Norfolk Island Pine as a substitute indoor Christmas tree because it's bright green and the layered branches can hold some ornaments.

Some put this plant out in a dappled sun location for the summer. If you wish to do so, wait until all danger of frost is past.
