6. Become a gardener.


It's easy, really. Even the most inexperienced gardener can become a green-fingered expert during quarantine. Use seeds from everyday fruits and veggies. Watch this video to get started. The video is in French, don't panic, to not miss any jokes, put the subtitles in English.



In a nutshell, just use a wet cotton, put some seeds on top of it, place it inside a plastic bag and wait. Be aware that some plant, such as avocados or dates, prefer darkness. Place them in a box to guard it from light and play the waiting game once again.

As soon as you see some roots appear, place your plant on top of a glass, filled with water. Make sure that the roots only make contact with the water. Or plant your new roommate into a pot directly.

Don't forget to water it regularly and voilà!
