Wishing for a dry spellPosted: July 28, 2011 Filed under: 3. Food Security | Tags: calendula, food dehydrator, food production, plantain, yarrow Comments Off on Wishing for a dry spell
Unlike the rest of the country, we’re wishing daily for less rain and more sun to improve our food production.
While we’re trying to dry out ourselves, we harvested two sets of items this week that also need drying. Our garlic harvest is air-drying in the shade and our herbs are electric-drying in the food dehydrator this week.
The herbs are calendula, yarrow, and plantain. All useful for making your own medicines.
