GREETINGS

Today its cloudy with some showers coming in.  I spent yesterday morning planting some lettuce, sage and some flowers.  The whole place is overgrown and weedy, will have to spend some days attending to that.

SALVES STARTEDIMG_5319

I started two batches of healing salve and hope to get the poison ivy salve started this week.  Comfrey is drying in the dehydrator for future use.

ELDERBERRIES

I am going to have a good crop of Elderberries this year.  SO happy about that.

LAVENDER HEATING PADS

I started making the heating pads and hope to build up a supply for fall shows.  They can be heated in the microwave and the heat can last up to 3 hours.  Or they can be put in the freezer.

I have been making heating pads for over 10 years and have always put lavender in them. Its soothing and doesn’t burn readily. I don;t know if I would trust other herbs thought. Hope you put some lavender in next time you make them.
