August Time Out: Day 11: Calendula – my skin care.

It has been three weeks since my last Calendula harvest and they don’t look very happy after all this heat and dryness…….so a good harvest today should help them spring back……and ensure I have a good supply for a whole year of skin care. A huge part of my self-reliance and frugal living is ensuring I have a good supply of flowers and herbs for looking after my skin and hair and dealing with minor ailments……so these lovely flowers get as much space as some of my vegetables.
