Yesterday I cut some spearmint to dry for making mullein tea for Hubby and I.
I resorted to ordering organic mullein tea leaves to make our tea. We cannot shake this cough that came along with the head cold we got. I do have a recipe for homemade cough syrup that I can use until the tea leaves arrive.
So, no, we are not healed completely. We did go ahead with our camping weekend, because we feared the kids would not have another chance before school started. Our reservations had been made for a month, so we decided to grin and bear our colds and camp. We did have a fun time despite.
Interestingly enough, my youngest is now begging us to play a round of rummy. So glad we taught them something new, that does not involve an electronic.
The dirt was back between my toes yesterday. I brought in a large amount of cauliflower, which I plan to make pizza crusts (cauliflower, egg, and mozzarella cheese) with this week. I also brought in a bunch more green beans and squash. My zucchini and yellow squash are about to end soon - squash bugs. I brought in 6 pounds of beets, which required me to come in, wash myself up, and head to the store for ice (to can pickled spiced beets). I need to ice bath them first to peel them. I have no room in my freezer to even make ice now. I also brought in about a dozen tomatoes, a few cucumbers, one pound of jalapeno peppers, one cabbage and a few hot banana peppers. We'll top our pizza's with green peppers, onions, and hot banana peppers.
