Happy May Day Herbies!

What a beautiful May Day it is! ❤️
Whether you are watching the Kentucky Derby, working in your garden or yard or gathering with family or friends make sure you do something to celebrate this beautiful day.
Traditionally people deliver May baskets - usually a paper basket or cone filled with treats and fresh flowers - and leave them on neighbors or friends front porch or front door handle. Children will dance under the Maypole. Singing songs and holding on to colorful streamers. These traditions were most common in the 19 & 20 centuries. Today celebrations are held any way we want! After a year of COVID-19 isolation it is finally safe to celebrate outdoors! Be creative and enjoy the day. 🌸

TODAY IS EARTH DAY 🌎 !!

Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day and make a difference in your environment.

Ten Simple Things You Can Do to Help Protect the Earth

Reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three "R's" to conserve natural resources and landfill space.

Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.

Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.

Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.

Choose sustainable.

Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.

Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!

Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.

Don't send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.

Bike more. Drive less.

This morning I set out to harvest some early Spring nettles! Nettle Soup has got to be the ultimate Springtime comfort food ❤️. I like to use this recipe from Herbal Academy. Sometimes I will use puréed potatoes instead of rice.
