During the long winter months, your dear Yenta often finds herself seasonally depressed. How could she not be? The sun doesn’t come up until the late morning and is back down again by 4:00. What’s a gloomy Yenta to do? Something that has helped to cheer her up is having a few small plants around. There’s nothing more therapeutic than a little gardening. This Yenta got a taste for it growing up in the wilds of CT, but she has found that it’s hard to have an actual garden here in NYC. Well, this Yenta has found that even a few choice house plants can do the trick. Your dear Yenta enjoys taking avocado seeds and watching them sprout in the window sill. New life is invigorating, isn’t it? Oy – get off your tuchis and plant something! It will lift your spirits and help our dear Mother Earth.
