It is time to plan what to grow for the upcoming summer.
What worked in the tea garden last year? Anything new you want to try next?

There ain't much fun in medicine, but there's a heck of a lot of medicine in fun.

Wilma: that bit of information from WebMD was valuable, huh? Until reading it I never gave a thought to any bad interactions with my medical medicines. Guess I better research – thoroughly - the herbal teas I want to grow, to see if I can use them with my medicinal treatments. emoticon

Wilma: This herbal tea garden has been 2 years in the planning. I think this year I should plant it, don’t you? *LOL* I will take pictures of my progress to share.

DJ: Duly noted about planting sage…thank you for the heads up. 

I’m with Carol’s question, so I did a “Google search”; sage has a long history of medicinal effectiveness, especially in digestive disorders and colds. The leaves sooth menopausal sweets, anxiety and depression. It also aids in brain function, i.e., memory. It’s being considered a treatment for Alzheimer’s. WOW! Pretty impressive pedigree… I’m planting LOTS of sage. *LOL*

On WebMD it states that sage interacts with diabetes meds; like the med, it lowers blood sugar. I take diabetes meds for insulin resistance… ideas are running rampant in my mind. It also interacts with anticonvulsants and CNS depressants. Not taking any of those families of drugs – so no worry.

Back to Carol’s question… for me it’s a drying process of the sage leaves, and then mixed with other teas or it can stand alone. The Chinese prefer it over their black teas. I am still investigating and learning about teas and how to mix them so I don’t hurt myself and the family.

DJ, you have opened a huge maelstrom for me, and it’s a GREAT thing too! *LOL* Thank you.

I've been interested in Steampunk but I don't have much imagination, but it doesn't hurt to try

Thanks for the invitation!
Had to look up Steampunk and found a variety of meanings. New to me!!!
As for sage in tea - fresh, dried, or either???
Do you mix it with other teas?

Welcome to the team and make sure that you also plant sage too. It is great in tea

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Hello everyone!

I am an old-timer to Spark People, just returning from a necessary sabbatical. I missed the interaction with others as I work from home. I am retired from corporate America and don’t miss the hour long commute (one-way), and at times, in hazardous weather conditions. No more deadlines, politicking, or one-sided diplomacy. *LOL* I live on 10 acres in southwestern Michigan, so can classify myself as a Gentlewoman Farmer; nuts and fruits mostly.

I am planning an herbal tea garden this spring; a first for me, growing herb for tea making. I love all things Victorian and just discovered steampunk which adds to my adulation. Looking forward to sharing tea-time moments with everyone.
