Your Health:

-Fall usually arrives here on the heels of a cold wind sweeping through.  The scents of autumn follow - crisp leaves, everything spice and woodsmoke.  For me, fall is a time of renewal, my favourite season of the year when we leave the hot and hazy summer pace behind, the days cool and just about everything has a fresh start

-Garlic is an amazing herb with a broad range of uses from culinary to medicinal. Garlic is a true powerhouse when it comes to enhancing your health. Strengthen your immune and heart health with this flavour filled herb.

-Cherry bark — the inner bark of the black cherry or choke cherry tree can be used as a cough remedy to support the immune system and stop unproductive coughing so a person can sleep

-Rosehips can be harvested now as well.  Those that are cherry red are rich in anthocyanins, quercetin, and vitamin C, as well as beta carotene.    They can be dried to use in winter tea, and soup.
