A New Harvest Basket ..........................

A few months ago I was in a thrift store when I spotted this picnic basket , I really didn't need it since I already have several picnic baskets. But it kept calling for me to take a look , so I ask a very nice tall man that was shopping if he would get it down for me because it was on a high shelf. The basket was deep and had a beautiful cloth lining with some side pockets , one look inside and I decided it was going home with me. I figured I would use it for storage and picnics

Last week I was getting ready to harvest the red clover when I thought about that picnic basket. I've always wanted a harvest basket with a shoulder strap and thought this basket might work.

The lid was a little awkward at first , but I made it work by putting the lid away from my body. The side pouches came in handy for my camera and clippers , it made a great harvest basket.

I made red clover syrup and dried some of the blossoms for tea.
I'll definitely be using that basket alot over the next few weeks as I gather more red clover and other herbs.

~ Many Blessings ~
