Oregano anyone? What does one do with enormous amounts of oregano? There is only so much spaghetti sauce one family can make. Especially when the tomatoes have barely flowered. I’m finding that so far this year, not much is doing well besides the herbs. They are OUT of control. We also have a SHIP ton of mint – mmmm mojitos!

Sleepy after soccer practice
This summer, we’ve been craving time with friends. As a result, our weekends are full of travelling and we’ve been spending less time in the forest then last summer. Finally last weekend, Esker and I got out for a good forest visit.
Viper’s Bugloss – not native, (and maybe invasive?), but really pretty.
St. John’s Wort is out in full force this year! Such a wonderful healing herb. Collect the flowers and buds, make an oil infusion, and then a salve. Great skin healing properties.
We collected a birthday bouquet for the lovely Katherine.
I dried the medicinal plants I found in Ikea sock holders. You can find these for 99 cents at any second hand shop.
