Ball Lids ~ Sinus Help ~ Lilac Lemonade ~ Vegetable Garden
I went to the health store to re-stock my "Thieves" oil. I have it in parenthesis, because they make it themselves and call it something else. Anyway, while I was there I picked up this....
I was told they can't keep enough in stock. It's for sinus infections and sinus related issued. I've used it twice, and it works great. In fact, I think it works better than the salt water nasal spray I have been using.
A good friend told me about Lilac Lemonade. If I get more blossoms after this cold spell (I doubt I will), I want to make some. Has anyone made it and liked it?
We are calling around for English walnut trees. So far, we've found one nursery with 10 foot trees, at $175.00 each. Or we could buy teeny starts and wait years and years. It will take 4-8 years to get our first harvest of nuts, so I'm opting for the larger tree, although more expensive than I expected.
We ended the evening with grilling out dinner, and playing cards on the porch. It stormed, cooling off and removing the humidity. The mowing was not finished, and the grass is growing like crazy.
More rain today. It's all good - the peas are up, the radishes are up, the potatoes are up, the chard is up, and the kale is up. It's all good.
