chamomile harvest

leaving at sunrise with my little girl wrapped in a carrier.

greeting the garden, harvesting our food,

plucking basil, thyme and mint.

finger-raking chamomile flowers into mason jars.

bringing my dream-scented bounty back to wash,

folded into flour sack towels and transferred to drying screens.

in a few days these flowers will be ready for packaging.

eventually arriving in your hands

to your mug

to your mouth to savor, your nose to breathe. 

our chamomile has all been harvested for the season. home grown organic german chamomile is unlike any chamomile you can buy in the store or bulk.
