I was so surprised to see this already. I have heard the meadowlarks for two weeks. A sure sign that a change is coming. You know they really sing so pretty when it is raining.
Of course, which is what I do most of the time, I try to run off in my own direction, my own way and it isn't until I come back to the vine, because I have exhausted my hoard of resources. You would think I would learn this by now. Life is so much smoother when I stay connected to the vinedresser.
All of our mullein is growing too, I didn't take any pictures of that. That was what I always used when the kids were small if they had colds and coughs. It is an excellent expectorant.
I planted these in the fall. They are also good at a tea for colds and coughs. I have a herb book on my shelf that is full of recipes for different kinds of herbs for ways to treat different illnesses. Almost every recipe starts with Pot Marigolds. That is what they call these.
