I also totally love to weed! LOOOOOOVE it! I could even be a professional weeder. Sometimes I have to stop the urge I get when I go by a house with a weedy garden as I want to stop the car and pull those pesky things!
I recently found out that Calendula is the herb of the year for 2008. There are several reasons I love Calendula;
1. It is the flower of the month of October which is my birth month. That is how Calendula Court was so named.
2. It easily reseeds in the garden and is a deterrent for bugs
3. The yellow petals are delicious in salads and look really pretty. (Yes, you may be served flowers if you come to my house!)
4. If I scrap a finger or get stuck by a rose thorn while working outside, I pull a Calendula flower, put it on the 'boo-boo' and it heals so fast that the next day it is gone. If you ever see any lotions or skin treatments with Calendula, it is the best stuff around.
