Perfect Sun-Tea Day Today, In the Garden, Free Seed Share Coming Up.

Dear Folks,

Today was the perfect day for sun-tea.

To 7 bags of organic green tea I added from the garden:

Dried Roselle; fig leaves and some Stevia.

In the sun for about 6 hours.  Love using our Arizona sun to create delicious things.

The color turned out so lovely and the taste is great!

FYI when you make sun-tea NEVER put sugar, honey or other sweetener (except Stevia) in while it is "cooking" in the sun.  There is a possibility of mold or bacteria forming with sugar type additions.  Add extra sweetness after you bring it inside and refrigerate the tea.

The beautiful stock is in full bloom now.  This edible flower is a member of the broccoli family.  The flower's scent is wonderful and very strong and the taste is mildly 'broccoli'.

These reseed every year in the garden.

I enjoy "recycling kitchen waste" into food.  I had to get some celery (organic) recently.  This is the now planted root base after 9 days.

You still have time to vote in my poll (upper right side bar) on what media form you would prefer my Herb Workshop to be.

I appreciate your taking the time to vote. Thank you.

Coming Up!

With the lovely weather we are having, do not put your frost protection away just yet.  There is still the possibility of some frost and even hail as the soils warm and the various weather patterns bring in moisture, cool air and wind.

Have a great time in your garden!
