in the kitchen …
The calendula's are blooming! When we moved from town I missed leaving my 4x4 foot bed of prolific calendula but here they are coming back in their new home. For a person with a black thumb these are one of the easiest things to grow. They are not too picky about their soil or water so long as they get lots of sun. And they are edible, make a wonderful tea and great item to have in the medicine cabinet especially for cuts/scrapes/burns and anything to help soothing and calming.
in the dehydrator …
No room in the dehydrator for this stash of herbs! They are hang drying on our pantry door which usually stores my aprons. Some wild harvested chamomile and our first trimming off of our ONE peppermint plant! The peppermint plant was a new addition this spring and it took off overly well. A wonderful smelling herb to harvest and makes an excellent tea!
