the plant pharmacy

Though we live in an area with abundant medicinal plants in the wild, I do not trust myself with identification of most of them and do not have the means or time to toodle about the countryside in search of them. I would also rather have them here on the property rather than have to go and hunt them down as I am rather lazy like that. Besides that, many of the herbs have beautiful flowers that attract hummingbirds and other healthy critters that we would like more of. So, a couple weeks ago I went on a herb shopping spree and got us a slew of new herbs and plants for medicinal use and a few off the wall edibles that should do well here.


  1. Nice! I did this a bit last year and am very glad I did. I hope to improve my herb garden a bit more this year as well. I will check out "Horizon Herbs" as well! Have fun with this!

  2. I have a lot of wild medicinal and edible plants around our homestead. If I didn't, growing would be the other option. I have always believe in the natural pharmacy too. Good luck with your herb garden.

  3. First...I absolutely love our writing! Very well done and oh so interesting (as 1 hillbilly to another)!I'm going to give the apple cider vinegar a try.The videos are super, reminds me of visiting my best friend and her crew.
