chamomile harvest

It's a modest, ongoing chamomile harvest but a most satisfying one. Homegrown and dried chamomile used to make tea is such a different experience when compared to shop bought. My favourite is fresh chamomile and peppermint straight from the garden into the tea pot. So good. Good herbal medicine to have on hand for the kids too.

This one plant is just loving the new garden and it's been in flower for months. Picking increases the harvest/flowering time. Just looking at it makes me happy.

  1. I know the feeling, Anissa. It's so satisfying to grow and harvest your own. Chamomile is so soothing.
