Just a few things to bring in!! Quite a picking I did today.
A much needed okra harvest, a few patties, some eggs, and springs of flowers + fresh sage 💜 so so happy the rain decided to show up! I think it really perked up things. 👩🏼🌾👩🏼🌾👩🏼🌾
I totally put edible flowers in my smoothie this morning, loved it, and here’s why 🌿:
This post is on one of my natural medicine remedies I love sharing with you guys.
🌼🌿Marigold is a flower that comes in a variety of types. One of the most popular types in the world of natural medicine and natural remedies is called Calendula.
Have you heard of it? I’m curious how many people know about this.
Sure, Marigolds are known to help keep unwanted mosquitos away and other critters from eating gardens, but they do a lot more on the inside of our body...
They can be used in forms such as tinctures, teas, essential oil, creams, salves, epsom baths, and more.
Here are some of the greatest health benefits of Marigolds:
Balances oily skin
Soothes mouth and stomach ulcers
Helps balance potential unwanted problems in women who have just given birth (ex: hemorrhoids, and infection)
Balances female hormones - eases menstrual cramps
High in antioxidants - it’s basically a superfood
Helps combat cancerous cells
But don’t over do it. Too much of a good thing does not make it a better thing! It can throw off hormone balance in excess.
You can add marigold petals to your salad or smoothies or look for other ways to incorporate it based on what your trying to combat by using it.

And that is photo is the man behind all of my amazing garden photos here, he’s my Dad 😊💕and he’s also a farmer. He grew his first turnip ever, and was so excited to share it with me. He is where I get my love for gardens, plants, and all things natural. My inspiration 🌿💛
We are so excited with our new arrival of bulbs. For a beautiful blooms in spring, it's time to plant now. Bulbs make a fine display planted in containers or borders, especially daffodils, snowdrops and tulips. They are one of the easiest and most rewarding garden plants to grow. You can opt for tulips which come in all shades, from dark purple to white, and bloom at a time of year when many other plants offer muted colours. Other bulbs, such as snowdrops and crocus, are some of the earliest flowering plants in the garden, brightening up the short days of very early spring.
For planting, most hardy bulbs including tulips and daffodils prefer a warm, sunny site with good drainage as they come from areas with dry summer climates.
