Rain And Snow Forecast
by Callie on Sunday, March 28, 2010
Monday and Tuesday it will rain. The snow may not get here until Wednesday, but Spring has been given a shove by Winter.
This photo is here just to prove that the sun and a breeze did actually show up last week.
Tom got me some molasses without sulfur. It does make the coffee taste a bit peculiar. Not bad, just different. Hope the molasses will serve as a Spring tonic and I will find some energy.
I found a blog that has simple herbal tonics for beginners. I am too chicken to try out any of this stuff, but I like to read about the brews.
Before I would make and drink any brews I would want to do a lot of study to make sure I wasn't poisoning myself by mistake.
This page is called Online Archive of American Folk Medicine. You enter a search word. I entered Spring Tonic. Not much info, but I suppose it depends on what is searched for.
While searching around for more tonic info I found this article on trash can tonics to keep critters at bay. I especially like the list of deer repelling plants. I know they don't eat the myrtle we have on the property. Someone told me once that deer didn't care for plants with purple flowers.
The hen is still eating and acting ok, but not healed up yet.
