Harvest your own tea
Yesterday, Asako cam over for a cup of tea. As usual, I went in the garden to collect some herbs, elderflower, hoary mountain mint and other herbs. She was really excited about that tea and took some photos. For me it's and everyday experience, but really it is much nicer than teabags! It's easy to be self sufficient in herb teas even for the most brown fingered gardener. There are all sorts of mints which have to be kept at bay, the hoary mountain mint which does not spread, lemon or lime balm, nettles, blackberry or strawberry leaves, and many more.Asako writes a blog with recipes suitable for people with diabetes, the latest recipe is:
Just in case you want to get rid of all those zucchinis....
