I had talked to my friend Rosie today, and it always turns into a long phone call. We can talk about lots of things as we have so many of the same interest. Herbs was one that came up today. In a previous post I had mentioned the possibility of growing feverfew as a cash crop in the place of tobacco. I had wondered in my mind if you cut the feverfew back if it would come out and bloom again this season. I have some planted and decided to dry some for my own use and so I cut mine back and am drying it as we speak. Now I will wait and see if it will put up more buds like most plants do and bloom again this season. If so, I would give some serious consideration to raising it as a cash crop for some extra money. I still need to do more research and see where and how it would be marketed in our state. Fever few is a good herb for treatment of migraines and joint inflammation as in arthritis.
So to share the pictures of the feverfew and the other plants that are growing and blooming around the yard.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
