I'm waiting for dandelions to come back :| Now that I let my first harvest puff out, I can't seem to find any. Which is rather odd.

They'll be back in the fall!

One craft done, the rest in progress! I just need to get to the fabric store for a few things and wait for some more ____ to come in the mail! I have the last week of June off work, so I'll have plenty of time to finish things up then if needed.

Monnie sent to Wulf the other day so the gallery is now open!  The link can be found at the beginning of the very first post of this thread.  Don't forget to bookmark!

After my botched job with the dandelion jelly, I had a go with another flower from a tree that grows in my neighbour's yard but comes into mine.  Despite my attempts to stay away from refined sugar, I used it for this batch because I didn't want to eff things up again with experiments.  Thankfully, the jelly is setting! 

I was reading a blog yesterday that discussed spruce tips.  I thought how awesome it would be to try the dip recipe the author shared.  Then on my way to meet my daughter at her bus stop after school, I realized the tree growing in my friend/neighbour's yard is a spruce tree!  With tips within reach at that!  So I may have a go at that dip tonight and try to harvest enough for a jar of pickled spruce tips too.

Still alive and crafting!  We had quite the storm roll through here, will be interesting to see how it effects the flowers and trees around here.  I am hoping that my wildflower seeds were drown.

You mean weren't drowned, don't you? Unless your garden is overrun with wildflowers, which of course is just a polite term for weeds!

I had to climb into the space between our house and the neighbours' the other day, and found it was full of a weed I didn't recognize. When I looked closer, I realized it was lemon balm! It must've escaped from the front yard a couple of years ago, and have made themselves at home! So lots of lemon balm tea this year, I think.

Dreadlock, I've had pickled spruce buds (bought from a fancy shop for a shocking amount of money!) and they were very tasty. There was a recipe in Plant Healer magazine a few issues ago for fir oil, which was basically to put fir cuttings in a jar, pour olive oil over them, and shake every day for two or three weeks. The author said she'd done it with spruce needles too, to equally good effect. I don't have either spruce or fir on our property, but lots of white pine, so I tried that. It produces a delicious oil, which is surprisingly un-piney. More like rosemary than anything. I use it in salad dressing, for stir-frying, omelets and lots of other cooking. I'm nearly out, must gather some more needles this weekend to make more.

I might just have a go at pickling it then, especially since I'll be doing a lot of fishing this summer and it's apparently good with both fish and eggs.  I'll have to subscribe myself to Plant Healer, it seems I'm missing out...  Did you harvest some pine pollen this year?  And are you talking about Forbes Wild Foods by chance?
