 2022 Year Of The Peperomia
From The National Garden Bureau

Peperomia are having their much-deserved time in the sun, though they have been sold as houseplants since the 1930s. For decades, there were only a handful of varieties to choose from, but with their new popularity and ease of growth, many additional varieties have come to market. The many types of peperomias can range from bushy to trailing, upright or cascading, and from fleshy succulent plants to those less so.

Many peperomias survive in nature as epiphytes or lithophytes, meaning they grow on other living and non-living things. Because they grow mostly in the understory in the tropics, they don’t need bright light, making them perfect houseplants.

* Peperomia are naturally found in tropical and subtropical areas of the world.
* Grown indoors they are fairly small plants, never more than 12-18 inches tall.
* They come in a varied number of colors such as red, green, purple, grey and cream.
* They can have thick, plump, smooth, rippled or shiny leaves.
Fun And Unusual Houseplants
Snake Plant 'Shark Fin'
Shark Fin is a rare, hard-to-find houseplant. It can grow 2-3 feet high and 1-2 feet wide, given the proper care.

The leaves are a deep bottle green mottled in a random pattern of paler green.
It can tolerate low to bright, indirect light. Water only when the soil has gone completely dry.
Fern 'Eyelash'
Fern 'Eyelash' is a new variety here at Wilson's. This compact plant has unique lime-green to dark-green foliage. The leaves look like a bundle of eyelashes radiating from a central base.
This cute plant loves high humidity and prefers bright, indirect light. Keep soil slightly moist but not soggy.
Dracaena 'Florida Beauty'
Florida Beauty is a beauty with glossy green foliage dotted with yellow as the plant matures; the speckles age to white, looking like stars on a green backdrop.

This plant likes to be away from drafts and is best located in bright, indirect light. Keep the soil slightly moist, but avoid over-watering.

Florida Beauty can be temperamental, but don't let this drama queen stop you from adding it to your collection.

Caramel Apple
Hand Pies
Pie Crust:
8 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup plus 1 teaspoon of cream cheese, room temperature
2 Tablespoon buttermilk
1 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 Cups all-purpose flour
1/4 Teaspoons baking soda
1 Teaspoon baking powder
Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

2 apples, cut in small chunks
1/4 t. cinnamon, plus 1 Tablespoon of sugar
1 Tablespoon of water
1/2 jar of BumbleBerry Farms Sea Salt Caramel Honey Cream Spread

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Combine butter and sugar in medium bowl; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add the egg to the sugar mixture and beat until just blended.
- Add the cream cheese, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Beat until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dough ingredients and add to the cream cheese mixture. Combine with mixer.
- Transfer dough to a piece of plastic wrap, and using your hands, press the dough into a 1-inch-thick patty. Wrap well and refrigerate for at least one hour.
- Place apple chunks in a bowl, then add cinnamon, sugar, and water. Mix thoroughly until apples are coated.
- Divide the refrigerated dough in half on a floured work surface. Roll out one half of the dough to 1/8" thickness. Using a 4 1/2 round biscuit cutter, cut circles out of the dough, then transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Top each dough circle with a tablespoon of apple mixture. Add a teaspoon of Sea Salt Caramel Honey Cream to the apples.
- Using your finger, wet the rim of the circle with water.
- Place dough circle on top of each pie, and pinch the two dough circles together.
- Using a fork tine, gently prick the top of the hand pie.
- Sprinkle pie tops with sugar.

Bake until hand pies are golden brown and just slightly cracked, about 20-25 minutes. Remove the pies from the oven and let stand to cool slightly before serving.
