Finally I grabbed time today to get my lipbalms made. I have been gathering my Calendula on dry days as the heads open fully. However, at last a wet day, not only for the parched soil, but for staying in and stirring a pot of infused oils and local beeswax.
D’Arcy showed a visiting french friend Seabeet which is growing wild around the land, the seeds blown in from the coast. He took his first taste of Guernsey Foraging. Sea beet being a great staple available throughout Guernsey where the land meets the sea and a fantastic first wildfood plant.
