Open House at Homestead Blessings

Last week, we had the privilege of being invited to an open house at the West family's herb farm, Homestead Blessings. What a treat! Mrs. West gave us a tour of her gardens, sharing information about each herb. She and her 4 daughters not only grow herbs, make herbal salves, and other lovely products; they also sing old-time Gospel hymns and play a myriad of folk instruments. We left with several herbs to plant in Tricia Ann's herb garden and infused with enthusiasm about learning to use a few of these plants. We're especially excited about our burdock plant that can be beneficial in treating burns.


Here's the lovely, homemade trellis entrance with her greenhouse in the background. the vegetable patch
