Only about half of the seeds I started last month came up, or so I thought. When I watered them this morning I found a slug munching out!! It must have been in the compost I used. So I got him out and re-planted some of the seeds that I thought did not come up. My son told me to sterilize my compost but I didn’t want to take a chance on killing my good organisms. Such is life..
I will be starting more seeds today, mostly medicinal herbs. I have been studying herbs for healing on and off for about 20 years now. I think it’s time I quit reading and started doing. I know there are a lot of reputable people selling dried herbs but I prefer to grow my own. As with veggies and meat and eggs, if you grow your own you know what you’re getting.
I placed another seed order. I have 164 different packs of seeds. That sounds like an awful lot but.. some are cover crops, some medicinal herbs, quite a few veggies and then there is seed I will be planting for the chickens and rabbits. So not really a lot of seeds.
I’m getting ready to make my own soap again. It’s been a few years since I’ve made any. Not fancy molded soaps, not melt and pour, not funky colored soap, just good bars of soap made with my infused herb oils. Honest and earthy slabs of soap that are actually good for your skin. I first have to find my folder, which contains my recipes and notes.
While I’m waiting for it to warm up a bit outside I’m going to get the first thing on my to do list started..bread.
