Growing my own tea

Last year I thought about what I wanted to plant and what I wanted to get from my garden. I have always loved daisies and simple flowers so the idea of growing edible flowers sounds great to me.

The seeds are tiny, you do need to make sure you pick the edible ones I really don’t want to encourage people poisoning themselves! I planted them in two pots but next year I definitely want bigger pots and more of them, maybe even a bed dedicated to these pretty daisies. They like full sun and a good drink.

It was nice to take a minute, enjoy the garden and it’s fruits. Drink tea and read a good book. I need to buy another mason jar and fill it up with dried chamomile flowers so I can have tea all year round.

I have a small Le Crueset teapot perfect for making 1 -2 cups of tea. I just used a handful of flowers, a spring of lemon mint and let it brew for a few minutes. I brought out honey but it was sweet enough.

I have quite a few edible flowers in my garden. I will share them with you on another blog.

Have a great Sunday!

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
