Where Thousands Of Narcissus Bloom

Where Thousands Of Narcissus Bloom


Garden Poem of the Day

Hillside, Narcissus
By Nora McFarlane

There's a grassy slope not far away
Where thousands of Narcissus bloom,
And I catch my breath, as I watch them sway
Tossing their sweet perfume.

Gaily they nod their dear little heads
And smilingly welcome me,
As they spring up fresh from their winter beds,
Eager for company.

Their round white faces fair and clean
Are purer than frost or snow,
And I thank the hands, tho' now unseen;
That planted them, long ago.

Here's @bigcitygardener showing how to create turmeric powder 😄👍 . 🌱 Drying turmeric for turmeric powder 🌱 . You can use freshly harvested or purchased organic turmeric. . The process takes a little time & will stain your hands & food processor a yellow orange color, but is completely worth it! 👍 . 🔼Here’s what you need to do🔼 . 1️. Boil turmeric for 45 mins then drain . 2️. Lay out turmeric to cool & preheat oven to 200°F . 3️. Slice turmeric & lay in a single layer on cookie sheet with parchment paper . 4️. Bake for 2-3 hours ( my turmeric was fresh so it took longer to dry. Remember you want it completely dry to prevent mold) . 5️. Put dried turmeric in a food processor or blender & BLEND -BLEND - BLEND . 6️. Transfer to an air tight container - this turmeric powder will keep for 2 years! . . . 🔶 Garden Question of the Day 🔶 .
