I grew peppermint and basil and nettle. I love nettle and peppermint tea. I've never dried my herbs. In fact, I even forget to tend to them. I have managed to keep my house plants alive for the first time ever so I'm moving forward, towards more edible things. I also got a fig tree. Yay! Seems like such a basic thing. I guess it's time. Or should I say thyme
New loom hangy-over-the-door contraption to secure the backstrap loom. An old exercise contraption of my dad's. Great for convenience, but a really good idea to put a note on the door. if it's opened, you get a loom to the face.
