Recognizing and using plants growing near-by and acquiring them for
garden plants from the wild for teas and to grace the salad plate.

Elements On Guard

Do you know what grows in your yard?
There are elements in leaves all standing guard.
Know which are to eat and which are not.
Research and find what you have got.

Tea Time

Know the elements the leaves hold and what they do.
It may be the contents for teas that can help you.
When you know their use and you have the need,
Gather those leaves, wash and dry for tea.

Inside The Garden

Many garden plants came from the wild
Before the days of supermarket shopping style.
Their usefulness found them a place.
It found them a treasured spot beyond the garden gate.

Preserve Nature

A treasured few get to grace the master's plate.
Nature's provisions are balanced and great.
Our challenge is to find the best way
To preserve, care for, and use natures display.
