Root Gathering

Autumn is the best time to harvest roots! 

As the aerial parts of a plant die back, the energy goes underground into root storage for overwinter.  Here are some roots that are available now:

Burdock, Arctium lappa

California Poppy, Eschscholzia californica

Dandelion, Taraxacum officinale

Echinacea, Echinacea purpurea

Java Ginseng, Talinum paniculatu

Joe Pye Weed, Eupatorium purpureum

Marshmallow, Althaea officinalis

Sage, Chinese Red, Salvia miltiorrhiza

Sage, Lyre Leaf, Salvia lyrata

Skullcap, Barbat, Scuterllaria barbata

Teasel, Dipsacus asperoides

Valerian, wild, Valeriana officinalis

If you would like to gather some roots, let me know a few days and times that work for you and I'm sure we can arrange it.

Winter Season

Winter is a time for dreaming!

No planting, no digging, no harvesting.  Time to enjoy a warm cup of herbal tea while curled up with seed catalogs for the next season.  Here are a couple of my favorites.
