“Calendula strengthens the heart exceedingly.”
~ Nicholas Culpepper
Calendula flowers are also soothing to the skin. I’m harvesting them to make an infused oil I’ll use in my next batch of soap.
Yesterday. Canned navy beans and chickpeas yesterday. I like to keep a supply on the shelf to have on hand for supper recipes. Here’s my girl and I hanging out waiting for the canner to finish processing.
Today. We’re squeezing as much as we can out of these beautiful September days with a little road trip today to explore and take photos.
Rumour has it we’re stopping for a cheeseburger on the way home–an occasional and decadent treat for this mostly-vegetarian. Oh yes. And desert will be a slice of the equally decadent pumpkin pie hubby brought home from Costco yesterday.
Salad days will resume tomorrow.
