Garlic Honey Cough Syrup

This is a staple in our house through the winter months…works super well!

Very easy to make:

Fill a mason jar with peeled garlic about 1/2 way - we use our own organically grown garlic.  Fill the rest of the jar with unpasteurized local honey.  Let it sit in a cool dark cupboard for 4 weeks.  Strain.  And done!  

Give 1 tsp 2-4 times/day - as needed for cough.  (Not for children under age 1)

Autumn Days

Autumn has found her way up the peninsula to Little Bird Farm.  Days are shorter, and nights are cooler and everything is a little bit more golden.  It is harvest time, apples and pears have been picked, garlic has been dried and we are getting ready to plant next years crop.  You will soon see butternut squash and pumpkins at the farmstand. And, if you peek into the field, there is a bright row of sunflowers, as tall as trees, bringing happiness to even the greyest of days.
