Freezing and Dehydrating Cabbage

When the weather gets hot, cool weather plants "bolt".

Cabbage from garden to freezer.

The heat of summer tells them that their growing season is nearly over and it's time to make seeds.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- the wild laugh of a pileated woodpecker in the woods
- the oak trees that keep the barnyard cool in the morning while I work
- dinner with an old friend who was passing through town
- birthdays and anniversaries
- helpful neighbors
Silver Sunday

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, 
so that you may know Him better.
Ephesians 1:17 NIV

Making Salves and Ointments

All summer I'm busy foraging for wild herbs and making salves and ointments with them.

Making salves and ointments

We are blessed to live in a place where many beneficial plants grow wild. I bet you do too, although your plants are probably different than mine depending on where you live.
