I'm making yogurt today, and since the dehydrator will be running for a while for that purpose, I thought it would be the perfect time to dry the chamomile blossoms that have opened so far.
While I was out in the herb bed, I cut lots of yarrow blossoms to use for an infused oil. I'll use the yarrow infused oil mixed with plantain, lavendar, comfrey, and calendula infused oils to make a salve for the first aid kit.
The chamomile blossoms, I'm drying mostly for tea through the winter time, but I think I might like to make a tincture or glycerite with them too, if my plant produces enough for both uses.
Other things that have been going on:
-I planted the last of the King of the North bell peppers this morning. The garden is going in, slowly yet surely.
-Today is my Grandma's birthday. Cousins and siblings who read my blog, call Grandma. :)
-Tomorrow, we're having rock delivered to be a base for the shed we're going to have put in. I'm pretty excited about that! Well, the shed more than the rock, but getting the site ready is a pertinent first step.
-This evening, after Ben gets home, we're going to mark out the site for the man to spread the gravel. And after that, we're going to order our shed. Yay!
