Out with the Old, and In with the New

Plants, Self Care

Back in the beginning of April I planted some plants. Unfortunately none of them made it due to cold Michigan mornings, lack of sunlight and extra water. So, this past weekend I decided to try again.

This is my mosquito plant, and I shall call him Chester. I have Chester right near my door to hopefully keep the mosquitoes away. Bonus, Chester gives off a lemon-like fragrance that smells oh so fresh.

This is Lilly Lettuce. Lily will hopefully grow up and produce some yummy lettuce for salads and tacos!

This is Harry the cherry tomato plant. Harry is thriving in his watering can pot. I can’t wait to see your yummy tomatoes Harry!

These are my lovely radishes who have already started to sprout. I shall call them the Rebels because they took no time at all to reach their milestones.

These are the Spice Girl peppers new and improved! Let’s see if we can grow some spicy peppers!

This is Henry my BIG tomato plant. Henry has already grown an inch! I’m so proud of you Henry. Can’t wait to see your tomatoes!

This is Clive the Chive. Clive is pretty chill, just growing and smelling like onion.

Albert is back and cooler than ever! Albert is my cilantro plant and I can’t wait until you sprout little buddy!

This is Sandy. I didn’t plant Sandy. I actually found her in a store… and it was love at first sight. Sandy is thriving and she loves the heat!

And here are my flowers, and I will call them Sunshine. I was slightly nervous to plant flowers as I am not a huge fan of bees. But I think having flowers will be a nice touch to our balcony.

Well, there you have it. Those are all my plant babies! Can’t wait to see them grow, grow, GROW!
