Oodles of excitement at the shop. New early fall ideas in the works. Always exciting to offer new products to my customers. I'm pumped about the herbal wipes. I'm getting closer to creating a prototype as the supplies are arriving here and there.
Jules and I are planning the fashion show and this weekend a "farm to table" event is being held in our parking lot. Summer spent downtown. Don't forget about our wonderful farmers market on Saturday.
Apples, and tomatoes, squash and peppers, plump melons all to your liking.
I noticed when cutting the zinnia blooms that some of the smaller blooms have died. That's when you cut the heads off and dry. The dried heads will produce seed for next year. Seed harvesting, the old fashioned way. Remember the story I told you about Mrs. Presley? I place my buds in a wooden bowl and simply toss them occasionally to dry.
A customer came into the shop yesterday and started chatting about this herb. Do you know what it is? Feverfew. The herb looks similar to a black eye Susan. For some reason my feverfew is few and far between. No pun intended. I'm not sure what happened to it. Did I dig it up by accident? I do that all the time! Darn it.
Off to the races!
Enjoy caring and sharing summer days.
With all good wishes,
