Got Herbs?

Medicinal herbs, that is.

I thought I'd have to wait a good two years before harvesting herbs from my medicinal garden. I was sure surprised to see these pretty little feverfew flowers blooming this weekend!

There are no more than a handful right now but I'm still tempted to dry them (and some of the leaves) then make a tea from them the next time I have a really bad headache!
Also, bees and bugs won't go near this stuff, so I'm thinking of steeping some in the sun and putting the liquid into spritzer bottles for some non-toxic insect repellant.
