Down by the river, the grass and weeds are already super tall. Once a week, we've been cutting it for the animals.
Several weeks ago, we took some cuttings from a grape vine and rooted them. We dipped each cutting in some rooting hormone and put them in a mix of perlite and dirt.
Ocotillo blooms make a great tea, a little like hibiscus. They're only out for a short period of time, so make the most of them.
We are now back into mint season. All along the river it grows wild, a thick fragrant carpet. We have a bag of it in the fridge that we continually restock.
