Hot crops are almost here! 

It's finally happening, we have vines full of green tomatoes, tiny little peppers, eggplant flowers, and even big beautiful ginger root leaves! 

This year, I'm growing Hungarian Wax Peppers! I've never tasted them before but I am very excited.
We have lots of greenhouse fruits starting to pop out and it'll will be delicious!

Last week we sold some beautiful calendula flowers and I think everybody loved them! You can eat them and use them for your skin or as medicine. There are so many books about the healing properties of the plants around us, but today I will link to a website that give a little overview of Calendula Officinalis
I find it thrilling and amazing to learn about the medicinal properties of all sorts of plants. It helps me feel like less of an alien in reminding me that, as different as we are, us and the plants, we still share common ground.

WE ARE HARVESTING THE GARLIC!!!! 
THIS IS AN EXTRA SPECIAL AND FUN DAY! 
Garlic is an immensely important crop for us at Loutet, it is even more significant for so many of us as a food and medicine. We hope to share the glory of garlic with everyone this weekend by harvesting it together! Also this is a great chance to learn how it grows and how to cure it to keep it for longer!

 

Feature Recipes 

RASPBERRY TEA
It's not ultimate best time of year to harvest raspberry leave, but it's better to harvest them in the summer then never!
Therefore we have harvested and dried some lovely Raspberry leaves that can be used in tea! 
Most literature I have found about the medicinal uses the term "women" almost exclusively to refer to folks bodies, they simply mean people with uteruses. Raspberry leaves have medicinal properties that are beneficial to all genders and body types :)
