June Is Here!

And so is June’s Forest Witch Newsletter! You can sign up through the link if you’re not already on the list. It’s at the least a once monthly email, though sometimes you’ll get smaller emails concerning special things like last month’s early announcement of my Hogwarts House Tea Blends.

Besides that… it appears I’ve disappeared from this blog for 23 days! Holy moly! Now, I do have that little image on the right column that says I’m blogging without obligation, but it sure has been a while for the time of year when I’m most eager to communicate!

Well, it’s been super busy! Each week has had many tasks and projects to do, lots of it concerning the gardens here, my new raised veggie and herb bed for example (though it cost a bit to set up, I’m trying to work smarter, not harder, especially since now I’m running a small business!).

The husband-man and I bought our first car last week, which meant nearly the whole week was full of car things, discussion, phone calls, scanning documents… But in the end, I think we’re both really happy with our new, adorable vehicle!
Now… if only it were electric, and batteries were better! But I think we’ll see that in the near future πŸ™‚

Hibiscus & Ivy

 

I have a feeling it is finally going to slow down a bit, but I’ve definitely come to realize that my birth month is one of the two busiest months of the year for me (the other being December). And that’s fine by me since I love the start of gardening season, and being outside, and sitting on patios, bonfires, sunshine, flowers, bees, birds, and good company.

There’s a few more odds and ends to be done for the garden anyhow, but not a whole lot more of the labour and time-intensive things. Although later this summer, I plan on building a greenhouse, and perhaps a cold-frame contraption for my new raised bed. We shall see what I can accomplish with my resources and know-how. πŸ™‚

And as for teas, oh, I have some big plans, BIG PLANS I SAY!! Actually, if you sign up for the newsletter, you’ll know what those plans are! But I am quite excited about them. The process is a little lengthier, but I’m hoping to finish the project within the next week or two!

Oh, summertime, you are one of my favourite times. Though to be fair, I love all the seasons when they come. I’m excited for many trail rides, drives to the beach, the beach itself, lots of gardening and harvesting and canning/cooking! I have plans for what I hope will be a goodly sized crop of raspberries this year, two jams, a regular and a seedless for my mama. Oh, it all just fills me up with an indescribable joy!

I hope you are enjoying this time of year as much as I am!

    • Hehe, winter is quite nice, but I like the fact that I don’t have to work hard at staying warm in the warmer months (it takes forever to get warm for me 😦 ).
      Hehe, the only time I won’t do hot tea is when the icky, humid heat waves come around!

  1. What gorgeous pictures! I absolutely love gardening and growing veggies and herbs. It’s so satisfying to pluck a ripe tomato from the vine for breakfast or a sauce!

    I guess this means you’ll also be making compost teas in future, eh? πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you! It’s so lovely to be out among the flowers everyday, I have to say! πŸ˜€
      And yay! A fellow gardener! It truly is one of the most satisfying things, harvesting your crops and making whatever your heart desires!
      Hehe, coffee grounds have already gone into the garden, but that’s compost coffee I suppose! πŸ˜› Yes, there is a little container on the counter with things to be steeped for the veggies! πŸ˜€

      • Every little bit helps them! I am particularly fond of homemade compost. We’ve also purchased worm castings to mix into the soil to give them a boost too. :]

        I can’t wait to see more of your images! You always take such lovely photos. :]

        • I wanted so badly to have a compost pile here, but the family is worried about would animals, and to be fair, there are definitely a lot around here! I’ll thinking of a closed barrel… but we shall see!
          I don’t even know if I could find worm castings around here, but it’s something to look into! I will definitely be putting manure on in the fall though πŸ™‚

          Awww, thanks! I love looking at photos of the garden when winter is here, keeps me planning for something better in the spring πŸ˜ƒ
