A Few More Hostess Gifties

After I finished yesterday’s blog post, I remembered a few other possible hostess gifties.

Another Local Option

Garlic and some saved Calendula seeds.

It’s local, practical, and it won’t end up in a landfill.

Sure enough.

    Oh, yeah, calendula! Great idea!

    It’s that time of year when everyone needs a new calendula.

  2. I think Rico needs a blog.

    I’ve been ramping up my garlic consumption. I know that people love to joke about garlic-eaters and direct all manner of barbs aimed at this amazing bulb. The ones that you dropped off are over-the-top.

    I am a believer in garlic’s traditional use as a medicinal plant, which helps to detoxify, cleanse, and repair cells. Its ability to kill harmful organisms was recognized during World Wars I and II, when it was used as an antiseptic.

    Just found out it’s most potent when eaten raw, and I’ve been finely chopping it and adding it to my foods this week, especially as my hours have increased at the anonymous call center somewhere north of Boston where I spend my evenings helping callers shop for holiday gifts.

    It’s much more effective than popcorn.
