DOUBLE -N- APOTHECARY

I loved growing such a variety of herbs this year, and now different, amazing smells and colors fill our home. Nick says our house is turning into a laboratory. I love it! We have been working on this project for a while now and are hoping to fully launch it soon. We are so thankful for our friends who have been willing guinea pigs through our endeavor. Our line will include teas, tinctures, salves, syrups, and more. We can’t wait to share all the details with you!
Stay tuned!

We have been making yummy pots of tea every night with the herbs we dried from our garden.

Our beautiful chard still going strong.

I harvested the last of the gorgeous Calendula before the frost.

We still love our broadfork!

Daisy-Mae loves the garden.

She gets to guard her land,
