The Green Report

by Susun Weed – May 8th, 2012

Greetings to all!

Here is the second installment of your Green Report for this month, featuring wildflowers of the fields. (Check out last week’s report for wildflowers of the forest.)

We are delightedly playing with the baby goats and all the baby plants in the gardens. How about you? Are there babies in your life? Do you have a garden? If you don’t, get some sort of plant in a pot to relate with and take care of. Even if it dies (all plants eventually die), you will had been in its company and been enriched thereby.

This week’s project is an herbal wine. Before there were liquor stores for herbalists who wanted vodka for making tinctures, herbal wines extracted the alcohol-soluble constituents. The basic herbal wine recipe I am giving you is one I have used successfully for decades with dozens of different edible flowers.

It is simple, though it does require attention, and some special equipment. It is chemical-free and sulfite-free. And these wines can pack a punch at rituals and celebration dinners.

What wonderful herbal wines will you make this year? Tell me about them!

Green blessings,
