winter gardening. the almanac tells me what to be doing. so we pruned trees, weeded, put down wildflower seed, composted and ate christmas panettone in the icy lovely sunshine.
I pull up the little willows that have taken root. The root bark makes a yellow dye so i strip it easily and soak in hot water. I’ll dry the core remains and read up on how to use them. i’ve immersed cashmere sock remnants, a sample of wooly wales yarn, and a scrap of my wedding dress. the orange is from adding a little soda. vinegar bleaches it back. it’s now in a jar for a week. #zerowaste.
if you like the free stuff i do, help me out and buy me a coffee. or a chocolate bar 😊💚🙏🏻. https://ko-fi.com/catlewis
