Happy Mother’s Day!
Fridge essentials: eggs, bacon, jam, veggies, water, homemade limeade, and these gorgeous PEONIES! 💐 Since I won’t be seeing my mom until later in the week, storing these fresh-cut peonies from @cvillecitymarkets in water in the fridge should slow their growth and help them last longer!
Other tips I’ve picked up:
1. Avoid open storage with ripening fruits and veggies since they release ethylene gas that will wilt and kill fresh flowers (my fridge has been sadly barren recently and peonies aren’t as sensitive).
2. Cut the stems diagonally at least an inch from the base with sharp shears to maximize water absorption.
3. Change the water every couple days to help prevent bacterial growth.
