A Budding Herbalist .............

Last Thursday , Little Missy spent the night , she loves helping with the morning chores. We walked around the herb garden and I spotted this old coal bucket that I had herbs planted in last year. Upon closer inspection I found this beautiful Purslane plant growing , it grows wild here and somehow the seeds had sprouted in the bucket. I'll be adding some of the leaves to our salads this week , they're very nutritious and high in omega 3's , you can check it out here ..... http://www.culinarymusings.com/2008/06/purslane-not-a-weed-but-a-wonder/.


Ms. Rose was on the nest , so Little Missy had a chance to pet her and watch her get ready to lay an egg.




After feeding and watering the chickens , goats and guineas , we headed to the field to harvest some red clover. She really enjoyed picking the red blossoms. A friend ask on my last post about red clover , what I do with it , some of you probably know. I make red clover tea , red clover syrup and plan to tincture some soon , it can also be used in cooking.



A Budding Herbalist , Indeed !!
