Spring is HERE!
I am so excited I can hardly stand it! Starting in February I took all the eggshells we have been collecting and began filling them with dirt. I planted seedlings in each one, and of course, placing them in the sun. I had so many seeds that I had to get some seedling trays and plant some more. I think I have over 250 plants! I guess I am an overachiever! HA! I have NEVER done this before, but we want to have a huge garden this year and I don’t want to take any chances I may lose some. SO…why does not plant a ton!!! We are also going to plant a special herb garden for our horses that we will be calling the THYME OUT PASTURE. Isn’t that cute? Get it? A garden is full of herbs the horses can walk in and choose what their bodies need. I think this will be a wonderful asset to the ministry this year! Unlike us, God has given them the ability to know what herb to choose when they have an element like a cold, cough, tummy upset, etc. So above I have one of my favorite herbs, Calendula. I love this herb! I can’t wait to see what it will do and how it will dry and of course, make into teas and tinctures. Calendula has many medicinal properties to it. One is that I love is making it into a gargle to help reduce inflammation of the mouth and throat. I also love it in my tea mixed with mint. If you would like more health info, you can visit the Bulk Herb Store and read more about this wonderful herb! I may have to wait a month or two to plant all these babies, but for now, I can enjoy a little bit of Spring right here in my home! Have a wonderful day and remember to Love deeper, and Talk Sweeter, Lee
