I have both of those too! Another good one is Holly Bellebuono’s The Essential Herbal for Natural Health. You’ll have to let me know if you take the class! It’s really good :)

That makes my heart so happy to hear ;) I left fruit trees in Louisiana too. I always picture my forever house in my mind (or heart perhaps) and it has a magnolia tree or lilac bushes and several old fruit trees. A girl can dream......

So...... I've hear you can infuse oil with african marigold the same as you would calendula. And also that it can be added to tea. It looks so pretty dried and I'm hoping to have a few tea blends in the shop come spring (shhhh! still some secret plans in the works there). I always have a *huge* stack next to my bed too. Not enough time.... or perhaps just too many good things to read!

I added that book to our library list, thank you! I might have one boyish apron left. I think it's got orange feathers on one side & a turquoise chevron on the other? I'll take a look. I am happy to sew up a custom one for you too.... but I won't be adding more to the shop right now. Just not finding time to sew as much these days!

It's so good! I've read about herbalism a ton, and still I am learning lots of new great information in the introductory class. Tons of great printables & recipes.... so you could be printing off goodies for yourself :) My favorite book of recipes is Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. It covers everyone in the family!

I *love* it. Self paced. Completely beautiful. It is online, but you can print it. I am working on the intro class and plan to go right on to the intermediate class when I am finished.... and it has a forum so you can work with other herbalists. I've been looking for an online program for years and this one is a perfect fit for me.

Thanks KC :) New England has such a wealth of local food & our Farm is the best! We have local produce 9 months out of the year! Heart Beets Farm is their name, we love them! Our grain share is from Pioneer Valley Heritage Grain.... I actually knew the woman behind the share through the blog world and was so happy to find her again and support her family's business when we moved to the area! It's our first year with them... it's an annual CSA so I'll be sharing how we store grains & beans after that pickup. Local beans! Exciting stuff. There are several meat CSA's in the area, and local raw milk.... we just haven't ventured into those. Part budget, part time/driving commitment for pickup. And the freezer is full of fish from Alaska right now too..... fingers crossed that next spring will see us raising some of our own. xo~
