        I’ve been dabbling for a little bit. So far I’ve planted yarrow, tulsi, bergamot, and lemon balm. I’ve also made tinctures from cleavers and plantain, and salves from plantain and black walnut. I’m looking forward to learning more about them and expanding my knowledge.  My husband’s grandmother used herbs and was a midwife. Unfortunately, most of her recipes were lost. We live on the family’s land.

          What do you use the black walnut salves for?

              It’s anti-fungal.

              I’ve used black walnut tincture to kill ringworm topically.

                I’m in Jasper, GA. I’m just a few months into the program too and really excited about everything waking up for the season around us!
