A Visit to White Plains Orchids

It's no secret that I love gardening, and I love plants of all kinds - in particular, potted plants. I keep many in my greenhouses, including a wide-ranging group of orchids - all the vibrant colors and variations in shape and size make me so happy.

Last week, I visited White Plains Orchids, a family-operated nursery not far from my Bedford, New York farm. There, I found some beautiful orchids and a few other container specimens to add to my collection.

Chicken Pad Thai with Peppers, Peanuts & Lime from Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon

If you're in the Northeast this weekend, I hope you're staying warm and cooking up one of our Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon meal kits. Remember, there's no need to shop for specific ingredients - everything is delivered right to your door.

Yesterday was also very cold here at my Bedford, New York farm - temperatures were in the low 20s with wind chills in the single digits. For lunch, my housekeeper, Elvira Rojas, cooked one of the meals I selected from this week's menu - Chicken Pad Thai with Peppers, Peanuts & Lime. It was excellent and just the perfect size for four. Plus, just as promised on the recipe card, the entire dish was done in less than 40-minutes. Our delivery meal service features so many inspiring recipes and cooking ideas, and you can customize the menu and choose the recipes that best fit your busy lifestyle. To order your Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon meal kits, please go to the web site.

Talking to Devoted Fans on "The Martha Stewart Podcast"

Be sure to tune in to my latest podcast on the iHeart media app, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. We're releasing another interesting and fun episode today - this one with three longtime devotees of the Martha Stewart brand.

Many of you who follow this blog have also read my magazines, watched my television shows, and purchased my products. Over the years, I've worked hard to build and nurture an effective brand that not only provides how-to content, but also imparts interesting information that teaches, delights, and inspires. Andrew Ritchie, Bernie Wong, and Dennis Landon have not only supported me and the brand, but have also shared their experiences and all they've learned with others. Andrew is the creator of the “Martha Moments” blog and online community. Bernie and Dennis post their gardening, baking, and entertaining projects through Instagram @BernieWongGreen. And all three continue to heed one of my own favorite sayings - "learn something new every day."

Enjoy these photos and remember to listen to today's podcast.
