Brrr! Cold and wet weather set in to most of the country over this past long weekend. Metservice published their June outlook, saying we’re swinging between cold and warmer-than average from week to week through the month, with rainfall predicted to be quite volatile as there’s a shift between easterlies and southwesterlies.
Generally winter signals a calm period as plants (and people) tend inward, but the good gardener knows there’s always tasks to be done – even if you’re slogging through muddy lawns to get to your garden beds. And for the person using their herbs for food and medicine, this season brings bountiful opportunities to work with plant materials to create delicious and nutritious meals, or relieve ailments associated with colder weather.
