Calendula harvest

Calendula, one of my all-time favourite herbs for it's vast medicinal applications, ease of growing, and beauty, is at it's peak!  We have been harvesting baskets of it each day, as you need to keep picking the flower heads in order to maintain flower production.  At this point we are ready to let some of the flowers go to seed, some of which drop to the soil and will self-seed in the same plot next year.  Others we'll save indoors and direct seed in April.

Here is a quick note on making herbal salves with calendula from an earlier post.
