Canning season is upon us!

It’s that time of year again!  The produce is coming in from the garden, and you are busy preserving it.  Although it’s a lot of work, growing and preserving your own produce saves you oodles of money, so why pay a fortune for those little bottles of canning spices (or herbs) at the store?  We carry high-quality, mostly organic herbs and spices in bulk.  Bring your own container, if you’d like, and receive a 10% discount.

Note:  I am currently working on my own pickling spice blend, which is why the price has not been determined yet.  If you’d like to make your own blend, simply decide which ingredients you’d like to use, and purchase them here!

Classes have been listed!

Classes I will be holding at the shop have been posted under THE SHOPPE section of the menu.  These will be fun, informative hands-on sessions!  I do have limited space, though, so contact me ASAP if you are interested in attending.

I am also planning to do some children’s classes based on the HERB FAIRIES books by Kimberly Gallagher.  The illustrations by Swapan Debnath are both beautiful and enticing.  These are fantastic books that encourage children to learn about herbs and what they can be used for, all in a fun manner that helps them to remember.  Stay tuned for more information on that, coming soon!

It is finally starting to warm up a bit, and I am itching to get out in the herb garden and really delve into that this year.  If it would ever stop raining, and the chickens would stay out of there, I might make some progress!

Wishing all the Moms out there a wonderful Mother’s Day, as well as everyone a fabulous weekend.

Update to Payment Options

Just a quick post to let my online order folks know that we now accept PayPal.  I know there were several who asked me previously, so wanted to announce the change.  Glad to offer another option to make things more convenient for my customers.  I’ll eventually get up-to-date on all this technology.  (Who am I kidding?  No, I won’t, but I try!  Thanks for your patience!)

Soapmaking Hack

Just came across this video on a trick to make lining soap molds a little easier.  I like it, and am going to try it next time.  Just thought I would share for the other soap makers out there.

(Click on link to watch video.)

Happy soap making!

Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone the best for the coming year!  I hope you added using healthy, natural herbs, oils and products to your resolution list, if you aren’t using them already.  I’m still recovering from our holiday trip and playing catch-up at home, but I’ll try to be back in the swing of things soon.  Watch here, and on the Facebook page, for updates and new products.  Remember, just because the shop is closed for a few months, doesn’t mean you can’t order or make an appointment to come by.  Also, if the OPEN flag is out on the porch, feel free to stop in.  Looking forward to an exciting and productive 2019!
