The days are becoming pleasantly warm even though though today is cool and rainy. Had a nice coffee with my sweet hubby this morning. The dog ate his breakfast then demanded a treat for eating. He’s such a joy to us. lol
I’ve decided to plant culinary herbs for selling. It might help us establish some kind of money/income since jobs aren’t manifesting from our efforts. It’s hard to know what to do. I try to stay positive but getting knocked down at every turn is the most frustrating thing I’ve ever experienced. So, I’m going to make herb groupings –
A mexican grouping – a pepper plant or tomato as the central plant with cumin, cilantro, oregano, parsley.
An Italian grouping – tomato plant, basil, oregano, thyme, parsley.
A culinary herb pot – basil, oregano, tarragon, dill, rosemary, thyme.
Choice plants singly sold, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, tarragon, chives, dill, lavender, lemon balm, cilantro, catnip, chamomile, tomatoes, banana peppers, sweet peppers, jalepenos, sweet violet, red clover, squash, green onions, spinach, corn, lettuce, cucumbers.
All will come with a pretty little fact sheet about the herbs and veges.
At least I have a direction to send my energy. It will keep me from going crazy with nothing to do. Our compost is so gorgeous this spring. It’s deep, dark, dirt. I love it. It will ammend our garden beds so well this year!
I’m going to also keep working on my Etsy shop. Alysia did a reading for me and suggested selling herb/energy packets online. Building my own little metaphysical shop… I’m so slow about starting things. It’s time to get moving. There will be garage sales, flea market tables, yard sales and Farmer’s markets to hawk my wares at too – Mid march is the perfect time to start.
On a side note, I’ve found my brother Landon. He’s rather a captive audience so I think I’ll write him a letter – show a bit of love. I think he needs it.
