The dog daze of summer are here! It's just plum hot out there!
The plants are wilting if not watered right away. The farmers are wilting if not watered right away! The animals are looking for the coolest spot on the farm. Jasmine, our new livestock guardian dog, has made a new home behind the garage retaining wall in the cool mud. Bad news for a white dog!
The most flavorful and thirst quenching way that we water the people on the farm here is with iced tea! We have 3 ways that we make quick, simple, iced tea with loose leaf tea. When it's this simple its easy to drink plenty and stay hydrated.
Oregano isn't just for pizza and pasta! Whether its small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), candida, coughs, colds, or toenail fungus. There is probably a use for oregano oil in every home.
Be it summer or winter there always seems to be someone that has a bit of congestion from allergies or a cold. Oregano oil to the rescue to help out as a natural anti-biotic and anti-septic.
It's that time of year here down on the farm when we are harvesting roses to preserve for oils, salves, teas and other culinary uses.
Do you have rose bushes in your yard and your hoping to figure out what to do with those lovely blooms aside from them adorning your landscaping? They are so beautiful, it's hard to cut them, but their beauty goes beyond their bloom.
Today's post is going to explore everything Rose. From how to come by rose bushes, how to plant them, when and how to harvest them. After harvesting roses we are going to talk about the best way to dehydrate rose petals. After preserving our rose petals it's on to the fun process of how to turn them into something useful and go over their medicinal uses.
