I won't be able to make it out to your place today to get Yarrow. I have a job that I won't be able to finish up until late in the day plus a dear friend is visiting from out of town on a surprise visit. I might just have to pass altogether this season on the yarrow.
If you want to harvest some for your self, it is very easy to just cut it near the lower end of the stalk and hang to dry or lay on a screen to dry. Then take the leaf and blossom parts off when it's bone dry, store in a tight sealing jar, in a cool dark place. Use it to help induce gentle perspiration when you have a cold. That can help ease the strain on the resp. system and move the healing process along. You could google yarrow for other uses.
Hello Ro, are you still interested in carpooling in to the chickenhouse tour on Saturday? if so, where did you have in mind to meet? It would be back tracking for me to come to Ferndale, so I am wondering if we could meet by the Slater Road exit? Would that work for you? call me and let me know, as I most likely won't be on line again before Saturday. My ph number is 312-0231. Alys
