Lovin’ Horsetail

Horsetail is my buddy. My teeth & gums & joints all love horsetail tea, but we’ve been out of it for about a month. I’m feeling it. So we went adventuring… in our new car!!!! …well… new to us, anyhow. It doesn’t like going uphill, we’ve found, and only seats 5 of us at a time, and it has a few other quirks, but hey, it was FREE, and it got me to my horsetail! That makes it a good car in my book 😀

At any rate, my house is currently overflowing with another medicinal plant to be stored up for winter. I’m a happy camper 🙂

Oh, yeah, and there’s an ancient “arrow” or two,  pointing us toward exploring things like horsetail:

‘and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so.’

–Genesis 1:30

… and that 7th year letting the land rest and eating the stuff that grows on its own thing:

“You shall sow your land for six years and gather in its yield, but on the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the needy of your people may eat; and whatever they leave the beast of the field may eat. You are to do the same with your vineyard and your olive grove.”

–Exodus 23:10-11

Being kind to the poor and the animals is just a great health investment 😉
