Hey hey. Hasn’t been a lot of things happening relevant to gardening or herbs over the last few weeks. What with us being up in the air about our new situation at our whare (see this post). I’ve had to decide that it’s not within my best interests to start any gardens apart from my token greens bed and tea tire garden.
I’ve also been away for a family gathering up in Tauranga where it just so happened my veins (see post here) decided to go ape-shit and I developed superficial thrombosis. Many doctors and a night in hospital I now have to inject myself everyday with Clexane, a blood thinner. Not very herbal, but it’s a somewhat risky situation as it’s a cluster of clots, I have two children and oh, I’m due to have a baby in four weeks. FOUR WEEKS!! But in actual fact it’s probably going to all happen in a couple of weeks, all plans of our beautiful natural homebirth are totally out of the window. Ach well, I’ve been very lucky to have had two already, I’m putting it down to an exercise to broaden my experience!
So I’m not sure when or what my next post will be about; it maybe baby, it maybe books that I’ve read (by the way I’ve just finished the most fantastically wonderful book called In the Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, absolutely nothing to do with gardening or herbs!), herbal experiments, who knows……….!
