Yarrow Flower Medicinal
Home Farm Herbery Organic Pesticide-Free Yarrow Flower is a Medicinal herb that is traditionally used to treat arthritis, fever, the common cold and hypertension. It is mainly recommended for lack of appetite and minor dyspeptic complaints. For external use, it is added to bath water to treat pelvic autonomic dysfunction (painful cramp-like conditions of the lower pelvis in women).
Cautions: Not recommended if you are pregnant or lactating. Do not exceed recommended dosage as overuse may cause skin photo sensitivity, dizziness and headaches in some people. Yarrow causes allergies in some people, producing a nasty rash. Commission E reports no known drug interactions or contraindications. However, the prevention magazine book Nature's Medicines advises pregnant women to steer clear of medicinal quantities of yarrow. Fresh plants may cause dermatitis in sensitive people.

We are busy here at Home Farm Herbery at many things such as starting many organic and heirloom seeds in the greenhouse, getting new raised planters built, creating new herb blends and putting new organic and heirloom seeds up on Local Harvest as they become ready and proven for 2013 plantings.
We start off our chilly mornings with some of our Home Farm Herbery teas and we find one of our favorites is our Herbal Chocolate Chai and it can be found at this link
It been cold here with a lot of wind that brings us a low chill factor so the other day I made some good pumpkin soup and here is the recipe.
Zesty Pumpkin Soup
Makes 6 good size cups
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, crushed
3 cups chicken broth
1-3/4 cups (16 oz) can) Libby's solid-pack pumpkin
1 cup half & half
Optional: sour cream & chives
In large saucepan, melt butter, sauté onion and garlic until soft.
Add Home Farm Herbery’s Zesty Pumpkin Soup Blend
and cook 1 minute.
Add broth gently, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes.
Stir in pumpkin and half & half; cook 5 minutes.
Pour into blender container. Blend until creamy.
Serve warm, or reheat to desired temperature.
Garnish with dollop of sour cream and chopped chives, if desired.
That soup coupled with some of Home Farm Herberys hearth baked crusty carraway rye bread was just the thing for a healthy delicious supper. Our carraway seeds are so good and can be found at http://www.localharvest.org/caraway-seeds-C24113
Our deal of the week is our White Wonder Cucumber seeds. This rare heirloom seed is in limited supply and we only have 5 packets so get your quickly at http://www.localharvest.org/cucumber-white-wonder-seeds-heirloom-C25028

At Home Farm Herbery the time has been flying with all the chores around here.
We have gotten the new vegetable beds ready for next year and the new herb beds built. All the new Hydro trays finally arrived along with next years seeds, plant markers and all the other things that went into the green house.
We got the fennel out and dried plus all the other drying, dehydrating and other things that go on around here.
My local artisan bread base is growing and that means Tues and Fridays are extra busy.
We had 4 or 5 days of steady rain that did glorious things for our big garlic beds and then the sun came out just long enough for us to cover them up with straw mulching before the temperature dropped to 26 degrees that night.
We had a great family Thanksgiving dinner during all this with Jennifer and Nate driving in from Wyoming and Linda coming over from Glasgow, even George decided not to go to Florida and joined us. Glynis cooked up the most moist turkey I have ever tasted and whatever she did to the corn made everyone comment on it. We brought some of our own homemade mince meat pies and pumpkin pies also and there were other great pie contributions.
Needless to say the wine flowed like wine!
I burned up another blender brewing up my liquid gold compost juice. The sparks were sure flying.
I have been busy making Christmas cookies as gifts for all our bread customers and tomorrow I will make many pans of homemade fudge for the girls at our favorite local bank and the gang at our local post office.
Our new scale arrived to replace the 2 month old one we just purchased. That one was touted as a great herb scale and the only thing I can say for it was the description contained a lot of creative writing. I think this new one will make life easier around here.
We are wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and sane Happy New Year.
May the Creative Force be with you
