Medicinal Herbs & Upcoming Contest

by Sasha on April 23, 2011

Oh YES and Easter Pics. I couldn’t fit that all in the tittle. Happy Easter and belated Earth Day everyone! Hope you are having a great time with your family and friends. I wanted to share some photo’s of my daughter’s Easter Eggs.

This year we experimented with homemade colouring and some traditional ones. We got to use some rose hip tea for red, curry for yellow (I could not find the turmeric in time) and some raspberries too. My daughter had a great time doing this and she was truly delighted.

Then yesterday we went outside and planted some seeds. It was pretty cold. Both children were wearing winter coats.

We lasted outside for about 15-20 minutes. Then back indoors.

Loving the feel of the soil on our hands.

This year I am growing my own little medicinal garden. I am going to use the herbs for teas and tinctures(if I get time).

I love the open the package and dump all the seeds in the pot “method” that my daughter had.

We planted:

RED CLOVER
ASHWAGANDHA
MILK THISTLE
BURDOCK ROOT
MUCUNA(still to be planted)
DAIKON

and more to come…

I was really inspired to plant a more medicinal garden this year while studying David Wolfe’s Ultimate Raw Nutrition Course. In the course I was able to get a very detailed explanation and view of what he grows in his garden. It totally makes sense to have at your fingertips the best vegetables and herbs for your daily use.

What are you planning on planting this year? If you can’t grow your own garden due to space and time? Consider joining a CSA in your community.

Stay tuned for my next giveaway in a few days. It is another GREAT one. I am so excited to share it with you.!!! I love sharing things that I believe in and that have impacted my life in someway.

Rawkinmom, thanks for the comment.

Yum. Pickling cucumbers. I love them. Yes I had some stevia too last year that I should grow again. Can't wait to see your post.

Great plants to choose! I would love to include all of those. I'm not going to get too creative this year because I live in an apartment, but I'll do some herbs and microgreens. Nothing too exciting!

Thanks for your comment Lisa,

Glad to hear that you are going to grow somethings this year. I believe anything that we can grow on our own is great. Love to hear what you will be growing:

Great pics! The kiddies are so darling and I love the eggs. Love that you used natural food coloring. 🙂 My hubby likes to grow medicinals and is interested in tinctures. Good luck with yours!
