Calendula

I am so excited about my calendula finally being ready to harvest!!!
It is such an easy plant to work with, but because I'm new to the planting seasons of Arizona it took me a while to get it right!

 I planted it last year about this time, so the plant wasn't ready before the 115° summer hit, it survived threw the summer with shade and lots of watering
Next time I'll plant the seeds in September for it to be ready for spring!

Just cut the tops off and it's ready to make a tea. Dry them in a cool dark place and them seal them in a jar to keep them fresh.



Garden salad anyone!

It feels so good to be able to eat from your own garden! It brings a whole new meaning to Organic veggies!
(calendula flower too)
 Here is a fresh new batch of spring lettuce to mix up a salad for dinner! 
Good pointer~~
I hear a lot of people say their garden veggies go bad quickly. We'll that comes from not spraying them with preservatives.

SO, on my lettuce I will soak it for 5 to 6 hours to plump up the leaves and make them crispy, dry them off and place a paper towel in the bag to absorb excess moisture that will make it go all mushy after a few day in the fridge. 
I can keep lettuce fresh just as long as the store bought!!

Super excited when our sweet mama goat did such a great job with 3 babies!
Now comes the part that every mom will know... getting back to normal! Although I'm pretty sure she's not worried out getting a small waste line back (we have no bucks on the property to impress)... she does however still look a little tired and uncomfortable.
So just in time for kidding season, this awesome plant is in full swing!



With heart shaped leaves, shepherds purse becomes easy to spot! Here is some of the patch that sprung up in my back yard.
Herbs quite often have a variety of things they help with, but this is one of the exceptions as it is very specific.

Natural homemade soap


Homemade soap! The best part is that I can pronounce the name of all 3 ingredients and it's easy to make because it only has a few ingredients to worry about.
coconut oil
lye
water
My son snuck in to grab it while mom was trying to take a picture... hahaa
CUTEST LITTLE HAND EVER! Maybe he could be a hand model!

Made it with a friend and it was easy and fun to see it all finished!
1 suggestion- don't do the crock pot method... it got a bit messy.

Learn all about making the soap here!
