Garlic scapes, chickweed, dandelion and more! Yesterday, I picked flowers and arranged: a healing and rewarding experience for me...which is why I grow so many (and continue to grow more). Another year on the land, and I am even more familiar. The violets abound! Along with the chickweed with it's beautiful, tiny flowers. The milk thistle, bee balm, nettle and dandelion surface. Yesterday I harvested a ton of burdock—half of which I pickled today (steamed and soaked in a brine of spring water, Bragg's liquid amino, and cider vinegar). I will bake the rest with other roots tomorrow. I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR. So grateful for all of the bounty.
