hello! remember me?! lol still around just swamped with herbally goodness, spring and kids. i've moved the herbal portion of my blog over to my herbal website. i hope to keep this blog for homesteading and homeschooling activities.
jumping back in to the idc seemed like a good place to start.
Planted: medicinal plants: solomon's seal, jacob's ladder, celadine poppy. we have dug up all the raised beds to move them and clean up the garden a bit so i have buckets of strawberries, horseradish and asparagus to transplant when greg gets the beds finished.
Harvested: chicken and turkey eggs, milk, nettles, chickweed, dandelion greens, burdock roots
Preserved: Nothing this week
Want Not: purchased 3 large bottles of everclear for medicine making. other than that, i have been staying out of the the stores for the most part.
Waste Not: food scraps to chickens and/or compost (chickens dig in compost too),
Community: held herbal study group at my house, worked on my community medicinal herb walk at willoughby farm, did a presentation on the medicinal uses of culinary herbs for a local teacher's sorority; sold eggs, milk and yogurt to locals; hosted a sheep shearing work shop so people could watch and join in
Eat the Food: lots of nettles, eggs, milk (yogurt), violet flowers, dandelion flowers and greens, chickweed
