The weekend was mellower than many lately, including a 50th birthday party we attended. I hope yours was an enjoyable one. Herbs were gathered yesterday-- first jiaogulan, which I'm drying, and will turn into a medicinal tincture. I planted the vine two years ago, and this was the first harvest. There are a number of claims to this herb; adaptogen, immune strengthening, cholesterol lowering, anti-aging and cancer inhibiting among them. It is often compared to ginseng. More info here. I'm looking forward to trying this one.
