Some of our dry beans are finishing up and we adore the colors and the taste! These pictured are Jacob's Cattle Bean. There are so many beans drying in the garden..what a rewarding crop to grow.
Jennifer made another smudge stick with the white sage we overwintered from last year. We can't have enough of these around here.
She also made a batch of calendula infused oil and holy basil tincture. The oil will be used in our salve. Rosemary Gladstar's Medicinal Herbs, A Beginner's Guide is a great place to start for those of you interested in harvesting some of your homegrown herbs and using them for health.
The Ashy Sunflowers (Helianthus mollis) are in full bloom in our front yard. They are STUNNING so we are enjoying them outdoors and in.
Alvin is loving the warmth too. Ahhhhh summer....
