|borage in bloom|
This year I have really tried to focus on my herb growing skills. The growing isn't the hard part, it's the knowing when and what to harvest. This book always helps in that journey for me, but it's a learning curve none the less. So far in the healing garden I have borage (as pictured above), lemon balm, comfrey, sage, mint, and st. John's wort. I attempted to grow some echinacea by seed, but to no avail. I am determined for next year!
And with all of this that is going on, and not going on (I'm looking at you green beans!), I am talking with a goat farm about adding two doelings to our backyard mini farm! I am so excited and a bit afraid. Like I am probably getting in over my head. I never can leave well enough alone! I am currently looking into mini La Manchas with their cute little elf ears! Any advice regarding these girls would be greatly welcomed!
