Springtime in the Still Room

I love springtime!  Wildflowers are beginning to bloom here and my favorite wild herbs are in abundance right now- dandelion, chickweed, plantain, shepherd's purse, cleavers are all growing literally right outside my front door.  That is a blessing in my book.

The roses are beginning to blossom as well.  They are delightful for gathering and adding to morning tea or a bath potion.

I'm finishing up the Materia Medica course at the Herbal Academy this month. It's not available currently, but you can sign up to be notified when they offer it again.   My youngest daughter and I are working on ours together which has been fun.  She's becoming quite the budding herbalist and we are making some plans for future projects that I'm beyond excited about.

The Craft of Herbal Fermentation Course is the newest offering from the Herbal Academy, and it is on my 'things to learn' list.  I've brewed kombucha in days past, and would love to expand my knowledge by making other herbal fermented drinks.  Mead is one I think would be particularly fun.

That's a quick snapshot of what's going on around here.  Oh, and I have a new raised bed herb garden that I'm anticipating filling with herbs and flowers in the very near future!

How about you?
What's new in your garden or still room?
What are you growing or making or doing this month?

Happy Spring!


  1. Ohhh, I love taking Herbal classes. I took one a good while back and really enjoyed it. It was suggested by A Farmgirl Sisterhood member too! Let me know if you take any in the future, I might join you!


Thanks for joining the conversation!
