Garbling goldenrod, otherwise known as Solidago. I consider fall to be peeking around the corner when the golden spears of flowers start to shoot from the grassy edges of the woods, the overgrown abandoned agricultural fields that were once forest, and edges of every highway from the Atlantic coast to the Midwest. When I'm processing these mildly aromatic flowering tops for tea, I know that fall is here.

2017 paw paw season has just begun here in Southeastern Pennsylvania!

8,000 little chamomile plants for spring 2018 harvest in the ground today. We have a few more thousand to go but we can only work for so long after dark, even with flashlights. Back to it tomorrow.

Come checkout @seedphytonutrients Instagram tomorrow! I will be taking over their Instagram feed for the day. I will be sharing what it's like to be an organic farmer, some of our great herbal products, and a picture of Eric hiding in the sunflower field:)

Lobelia inflata

Flor de Jamaica, Roselle, and Hibiscus are all names attributed to this beautiful, antioxidant rich, sour and cooling herb. Commonly thought of as flowers, we actually use the fleshy outer calyx of the flower of Hibiscus sabdariffa plant. Wonderful late summer and early fall for warming teas mixed with cinnamon, mixed with spicy dishes as you might use cranberries, or concocted into sweet desserts or drinks. Food is medicine.

Spotted lantern fly next to my wash pack shed today. Despised by orchardists and small fruit growers, I must say she is kind of beautiful.

One of the things that I love about growing herbs and practicing herbalism is the rhythm I sway to with the passage of the seasons, the ability to reflect on the life changes I have experienced since the last time I found myself with a particular plant, and the deep connection I feel with our human ancestors who most certainly interacted with their world in this way. I feel honored to share in this tradition.

What a perfect, sunny and dry day for seed collecting! I come to the same wild patch every year during the rainy cool days of spring for my deeply nourishing personal nettle harvest. Now I come to harvest some seed for my own gardens with the goal of sharing this with you! Hopefully growing an ecotype from my own area will result in stronger and healthier plants for our customers in seasons to come.

After all of the rains this week we have a beautiful day ahead of us. Find us at the Doylestown Farmers Market until noon! We have all of our hydrosols, including our newest bug chasing Catnip and uplifting Lemon Verbena. Can't make it to market? Find us online! Our store is always open! Link in profile.

I had no idea how much pleasure could be gained in creating wild places on the farm. Of course I wanted to create habitat, promote growing native plants through demonstration, and provide for a healthier ecosystem in which to grow food and medicine. But sometimes my heart just aches with the beauty that is nature. This image is taken just now, after a day of off and on rain. While I may not love all of the water we have in our wash pack shed or in my greenhouses right now, the wild plants absolutely love it,

Sharing a view of one of my favorite fields from today. We are growing these babies for @seedphytonutrients to cold press into the organic sunflower oil which will make amazing products! Soon to be found at a store or salon near you...
