Yarrow

Source
I chose to write my last herbal mini research paper on yarrow. My friend Becca and I got a yarrow plant and split it from the Forsyth Farmers Market in Savannah before I moved, so I wanted to know more about this herb that is now proliferating on my deck. My favorite use I discovered: break off a stalk and stuff it up your nose to stop a nosebleed. Awesome.

And the sourdough update - it's alive and growing twenty-four hours later!

Love that you wrote about yarrow. I think it is so pretty... just a bonus that it has awesome herbal remedies to be made from it!
