So Many Ideas, So Little Time


So much to blog about, too many ideas in my head right now. We started a lot of different things today....but haven't finished them. There is dandelion oil infusing in my windowsill, as well as an herbal perfume. Chickweed infusing in my crockpot. Violets and dandelions steeping on the stove for jelly, which we are making tomorrow (PTOE activity). Dandelion roots soaking, waiting to be scrubbed. Sooooo tired today! Off to make a good salad for dinner and sew for the rest of the evening. Have a great rest of the day.

All that bright spring sunshine and energy can turn out to be exhausting!

Love all your dandelion posts. I wish I could do them myself but my yard is a sandpit and tiny anyway. I did pass on your dandelion syrup to my sister in law back east and she's making it now. I can live vicariously through you all!

T.D. Yes, i'll be posting the syrup recipe....if it works for us.

Becca...so sorry I can't send some fresh dandies your way.

Toni, I am making a chickweed salve for skin ailments. This will be my first time making a salve. It's really good for the skin.....Have you eaten any yet? I love the taste of chickweed, we mix it with our salads often.
