Harvest abundance to you all and green greetings


My shelves are glowing and groaning with the weight of all the new preparations – vinegars, tinctures, honeys, and oils. (The pestos are in the fridge and the wines are in the cellar.)

I trust you are adding to your stores as well, remedies both old and new.

Experiment! Make something you’ve never tried before.

Remedies we are making right now include: Self-heal (Prunella vulgaris) vinegar, which is an amazing rosy red and surprisingly flavorful for a scentless mint.

Elder berry honey, ready to use as an instant tea to ward off colds this winter. White pine vinegar, to keep us supplied with vitamin C in the winter.

Schisandra oxymel, to nourish chi, jing, and shen (the 3 energies of life). And pestos, pestos, pestos. Pestos from basil, shiso, oxalis, dandelion, garlic mustard, curly dock leaves. Pestos so we have antioxidant-rich greens during the dark months.

Speaking of the growing dark, the creeping Jenny (Glechoma hederacea) wine smelled so good when we were bottling it that I can hardly wait until winter solstice to open it and imbibe.


Coming up? Seeds and roots. More food, more remedies. More green blessings.
