What a way to get Mullein
getting closer to the hill, my better judgement said "forget it girlie"all you need to do is slip like you did before and break a leg (or hip). Mullein will have to be gathered someplace else..Not so, Cecil insisted on doing it himself..
He admitted it became steeper than he thought and had to "sit" down to get down, doing a "butt slide" :o)...One thing about us old folks, we will try by any means necessary to reach a goal :o).
Mission accomplished :o) Here he comes down the sidewalk, bag of Mullein leaves in hand ..Do you notice his "Manly stride" :o) You would think he was "Superman's brother" :o)...I definitely will have to give him a special treat :o)...
I've got the Dehydrator filled to the top drying the leaves after a good soaking and washing..I had quite a bit from two plants, so I had to do a makeshift hanging place (over the washing machine :o) for these until the others are dry..Well, this turned out to quite an adventure today harvesting some Mullein leaves. Should I have waited until Monday :o)...
last night I ran out of my sleep prescription and made a large cup of Mullein tea sweetened with Honey...well I slept from 10:30 until 2:40, then fell back to sleep around 4:00 and slept until 8:15..could have been better , but I was rested :o) Mullein is relaxing for sure.
