The high temps and humidity here in Michigan recently have kicked garden production into full gear! I am harvesting daily and abundantly from the garden and feverishly (literally - its been in the 90s for days!) both drying plants for later use as teas, infusing oils for handmade skin care recipes to come and making a few tinctures here and there, mainly to supplement the family medicine chest. More to come on all of these, when I come up for more air!

|Dear basil, thanks for hangin' in there!|
Phew! I could go on and on. I am just so thankful that the plants are thriving and I get to be there with them to watch them go through their many stages and changes. It is truly beautiful and therapeutic for me...
How are your gardens doing? I'd love to hear about any goodies you might be crafting with your harvest!
