My family has been planting in our yard for many years and recently we were growing our own herbs and spices.
In addition to herbs and herbs of all sorts, we also enjoy a few varieties of wildflowers.
One of our favorites is the “lucky” wildflower (Astragalus vernalis), which is not a member of any of the major families of herbs.
We also enjoy the “doom” wildflower (Aconitum) which is actually a member but not of any family of herbs!
So, in the fall, when the leaves are on the ground and are not in the garden, we tend to remove them and let them dry out in a cool, dry place.
For this reason, I like to make my own dried herbs in the following way: I use the dried leaves from the “Lucky” Wildflower to make a fresh-pressed herb tea.
When I make my herbal tea, I take a handful of the dried leaf and then I pour the tea into a glass and cover it up with a little water.
This way, the leaves have a little extra moisture.
Then I put the tea in a plastic bag and freeze it.
In the winter, I just pour the dried herbs into a plastic bottle and freeze in a separate container.
This method makes sure that the herbs do not freeze and will not thaw in the cold.
For these reasons, I have been growing my own herbal tea for many many years.
The herbs I use in my herbal teas are all from the same family, namely the “Pisum” family.
The plants we harvest in the summer and the winter are from the Pisum family.
All the herbs that we grow for our tea are from these families.
It is important to keep these plants healthy because they do not grow in cold weather.
It also helps keep the leaves soft and free from any diseases.
In this way, I enjoy having fresh, natural herbs.
But when it comes to the “dead” leaves, I think I have some other options.
When the leaves become a bit stiff and are looking dry, I can use a fresh leaf from a wildflower, which is another family of plants.
I use dried leaves of A. lanceolata, A. alba, A.”nix, and A. grandiflora to make fresh-made herbal tea.
I also use dried roots from A. purpurea, A.-L., and A.-S.
to make an herbal tea that is not only fresh, but also delicious.
