Rosehip Harvest

It was a Beautiful Sunday here at the Homestead! Between the chores of stacking wood & clearing brush, I snuck off to harvest some Rosehips~ That can be a painful job too...but rewarding in the end :)

Here's what I collected and bunched today. I thought the color of the Rosehips look great against the ornamental Kale on the table~ Here's another Kale that has gotten HUGE!

Love the Color~

New Home for White Sage

Harvested the last of the White Sage today and it looks beautiful drying on top of my old Herb Hutch.

When the Sage is dried I'll just lay the bunches loosely on top of each other inside the hutch. The smaller pieces will be placed in jars and used as needed.

White Sage is a sacred herb used by the Native Americans for purifying and cleaning. The leaves are burned like incense and wrapped in bundles called "smudge sticks". At our herb shop we've sold smudging herbs for years and used them in our homes as well. My White Sage is grown without chemicals and is harvested respectfully in my garden. I always give thanks to the plants and appreciate their healing qualities.

Here's a jar of Pineapple Mint on the left and White Sage on the right~
I'm considering selling some bunches of white sage on my website, I can't possibly use all of it myself :)
