i spread it around some trees and the new garden bed. I watered it in and it breaks down quite easily under the stream of water.
i also planted most of my Borage volunteer seedlings around the herbaceous border, maybe in Summer i will be able to harvest some without depriving the bees of a food source. Dear Borage, you didn't even wilt at the disruption and move to your new home. Grow on and flourish.
A friend called in with his brother to collect the young bantam rooster, so glad he has found a good home, it was war in the henhouse with Big Boy and him once he stopped being a chick. One rooster is enough. He was a lovely coloured and feather tail beauty, his new owner loves him and says he will tame him in a week.
Late this afternoon i pulled some Marshmallow roots to dry(malva sp). I will make a tincture from them when they are dry. Maybe also a tea for soap making too. It is said to be good for psoriasis.
I purchased the online pdf version of Practical Herbs by Henrietta Kress, it is such an enjoyable read i have dropped everything to finish it. I think it will become one of my GoTo books for herbal information, her recipes are very easy to understand too. I did note that my Cleaver tea was probably far too strong, she recommends just two teaspoons of fresh herbs per cup whereas i used a larger amount by far. Ho hum we live and learn.
Tomorrow my swap buddy and her husband come to exchange swaps, share a meal, and talk talk talk, as well as fitting in a visit to a friends lovely garden just up the road. What fun! Ahh yes Life is Good.
