There seems to be an herbal theme happening this week. We've got articles on preserving, cooking and medicating with them. I hope you enjoy!
Things happening in the community.
The drive is still on for @needleworkmonday posts. If you post your needlework posts in the community on Mondays until 24th August you'll go in the draw for a chance to win 500HP delegation for 7 days courtesy of @shanibeer.
Some highlights of the week
Over at @goldenoakfarm some of the abundance of summer is being dehydrated in preparation for keeping the chickens fed on healthy greens over winter.
@riverflows has discovered that rosemary has many more beneficial effects than she'd first realised. Regularly consumed, could this herb help to lift depression?
There is such beauty in flowers that we bring into our house to enjoy, but sadly they don't last. However, @jaynie has been wondering if one can make living vases, bringing a longer lasting enjoyment of plants inside, while still keeping it in a vase.
I couldn't go past this refreshing looking summer recipe which uses that nutritious, weed for many, purslane. Now I just need to find some artichoke hearts.
Each week one of our featured authors will be selected to be a 5% beneficiary of The Lotus Garden newsletter. This week @goldenoakfarm will receive this award.
