a chronicle of our days and half-time efforts at (sub)urban homesteading, musings on parenting, and a whole lot of the mundane, humdrum bits.
Wonderful memories to treasure.
Beautiful pictures. Are those blossoms marigolds? Are you just seed saving or do you make a tea or tincture or something with them. Your blog is really a blessing. Thank you.
thank you, Terri~ Yes, they are marigolds! We are saving seeds from marigolds, but when I do that I just wait until they get older and pull the seeds right out and store them in a jar. These were collected for a Day of the Dead party we hosted this past weekend. SUCH fun.
Very, very cool....I hope you post some pictures....you really are amazing at the blog/picture/writing "thing':) Thanks.
How do you dip leaves in beeswax?
I have a tiny little crockpot that I found at the thrift store (it only has one setting- it is either ON or OFF) that I think must be intended to be a small fondue-type pot. I just put a bit of beeswax in it, plug it in, and a little while later it is all melted and I just dip the leaves in while I hold onto the stem. And voila! Hold them upside down for a few seconds to allow excess wax to drip off and to start the hardening process, then lay on newspaper and let dry. :)
thanks for taking the time to read and comment~
