summer cooling, winter warming

We grow chamomile. It looks like a daisy, but has a lovely flavor.

As flowers open, we cut and tie the entire stalk and flower into bunches.

Before cutting.

We use it fresh right into cold water. The infusion is delicious.

In the winter, after it has dried, we add it to hot water for a flavorful tea.

It grows back after the heavy trim. We will do exactly the same thing again.

We start them from seed. Chamomile can be invasive, so we are careful to not let it go to seed and to keep roots contained.
