Greetings from Los Angeles! We’ve been on lockdown here for about 2 months, and with some recent riots in addition to our peaceful protests following the murder of George Floyd, we’re adding curfews to the mix!

I have no trouble killing plants, as evidenced by my two sad-looking pots sitting on the shelf of my mint china hutch. Pot #1 contains crunchy brown leaves wilting […]
