ANNA IS BACK !!!!!
Elmer told you all about my new greenhouse. Now, I can grow more plants all year around. Elmer likes plants in the house, but he doesn't take to well to my plants that "smell up the place" he says. We are talking about some of the herbs.
So now, I am finally going to answer your questions regarding herbs. Someone asked what herbs I grew. I grown herbs, vegetables and flowers. Herbs and vegetables are grown not only for eating, but also for medicine, too. Some flowers are also grown for medical purposes. I don't know if I can remember everything I have in, but I will give you a list of what I remember. My garden is at our old house. I will plant one at this house, next year. Elmer wants to turn the ground before winter and he will do it again the spring before I plant.
So the herbs I have planted are: allspice, aloe vera, anise, buckthorn, cayenne, celery seed, chamomile, clove, dill, echinacea, ginger, goldenseal, hawthorn, juniper, mullein, oregano, peppermint, rosemary, sage, thyme, basil, bay, catnip, garlic, hyssop, jewelweed, kelp, lavender, parsley, feverfew, lovage, pennyroyal, orangemint, green and blue cabbages, snap beans, marjoram, pumpkins, watermelons, onions, garlic, and more. I know I have more out in the garden, I just can't remember them all.
I was also asked if I dry some for the winter and yes, I do. Some I use for spices and some for medical reasons. So I have to save enough to get me through the winter for both reasons.
I was asked some other questions, but I want a separate post for each of them as I want to tell you how I make them in case you would like to make them.
Guess the post is kind of short this time. Hope to be longer next time.
