Pak Choy cabbage is growing very well in this pot.



These are of the same Rutgers Tomato plants from different angles. We have basil, chives, peppermint and catnip planted in between and around the plants which is just starting to sprout.


Flame Lettuce, Mustard Greens, Spinach, Paris Island Lettuce, Yellow Early Squash and Black Beauty Eggplant.

Lemon Balm Leaves added to white vinegar to make an "Herbal Vinegar." We will use this as a marinade for chicken, as medicine, as well as a salad dressing mixed with olive oil and some other herbs.


yarrow 2

This is some Wild Wooly Yarrow we picked in the miniature horse pasture. We will use the dried herb as a tea and as a tasty smoke. It is also great extracted into olive oil and used externally on minor cuts and scrapes (much better than petrolium junk like neosporin.)

Jessy & Daisy

strawberry leaves

Wild Strawberry Leaves that will be dried and used as an astringent/digestive aid tea.

mulberry leaves

Adding Mulberry leaf tea to your diet can allow you to consume more safe sugars. We picked these leaves today, but we can't wait to pick some berries; they should be ripe within the next few days. The mulberries have turned red, but we are waiting for them to turn dark purple to pick them.
