AND won’t break the bank….
AND serves as a garden planter….
AND is EASY to build…..
AND is BEAUTIFUL.
Love it. Love it. Love it.
With all the gardening and outdoor activities going on right now, I’ve been a bit light on posting the ‘creative’ type projects as of late….so here’s a fun one for ya! I did this project a long time ago for one of our B. original episodes and was excited to be able to bring the idea to life again over the past couple weeks….it’s the perfect addition to our garden schoolyard area….

My daughter and I played around with the sweet offerings of red clover over the weekend. This common perennial herb (also part of the legume family) grows naturally anywhere and everywhere around here in the Midwest as well as throughout a better part of the U.S.
It looks beautiful in flower arrangements of course, but more importantly, it’s another wild edible for all of us to explore. It’s considered to be very safe and beneficial, but as with all wild edibles, I always like to stress the importance of moderation and doing your own personal homework to find the best uses for you, especially when utilizing it for its’ medicinal properties and in larger, more frequent samplings.

I love Citrus. Doesn’t matter what the season…You’ll usually find bags of citrus fruits in my house all year long and we probably juice more than we eat whole. (I’m so envious of those of you who are able to have it growing right there in your own backyard!)
Fresh is best. Yes. But, I don’t always have time to do the daily squeeze. To make life a bit easier and more convenient, Sunday is usually my juicing day. I grab my mason jars and fill them with fresh squeezed citrus juice for the week. Grapefruits, Oranges, Lemons and Limes….I do them all.
