Thinking of Fall

Standard

As it starts to get cooler here in good ole Wisconsin and as the days get shorter my mind is drifting to all the preparations I would like to make before winter sets in.  I currently have quite a wish list going at Mountain Rose Herbs and while I am waiting to get paid I find my list expanding each day.  My goal is to get what I will need for the fall and winter and while I am a planner it’s hard to plan for what I think I might need.  I do have quite a few tinctures planned (St. John’s Wort and Valerian to name a few) but also ingredients to make things such as cough medicine, throat lozenges, essential oils for various applications and such.

This cooler weather is also bringing my mind to canning.  I planned to start canning earlier this year and it didn’t happen at all.  But I am still hoping to can some Jelly, Pickles, and freeze items like corn, green beans, and other veggies.  My husband and I joke that we are trying to “Laura Ingalls Wilder-it” this winter by better preparing now.  Do you have any plans to prepare for winter?
