JB’s mom recommended we try using Richters Herbs — they will ship live, potted plants to you from their home base in Toronto, which was ideal for Michigan’s stay home orders. The box arrived a couple of days ago, so we’ve been (per instruction) letting them sit in the shade for a bit before planting them. Having never mail-ordered live plants before we weren’t sure what to expect, but when we opened up the box, it was clear why Richters has been in business for 50 years. The herbs looked fresh and healthy (dare I say…verdantly healthy?), as if they’d been sitting happily in the sun and not in a box for the past couple of days! We made seafood paella a couple of days ago for dinner, which Min liked enough to have for breakfast the next morning, and the rose bush be poppin’!
The past few days have been a mix of steamy temperatures and sudden downpours, one of which eventually got to the dancing chicken. We ended up having to move it into the oven to finish cooking, but it was still delicious (despite eating dinner at 10pm LOL). Other eats have been this white bean, sausage and escarole soup and a caprese salad to take advantage of our oregano surplus.
sometimes you just need strawberry rhubarb crumble (for lunch?).
