The “Dog Days” of summer are upon us in the South. The dogs and cats are lazy, the snakes are more prone to bite, the gnats, flies, and mosquitoes are more bothersome than normal, and the poison ivy is thriving. Thankfully, it isn’t all bad. These slow, hot days bring more time for family gatherings, playing in the creek, sitting on the porch swing watching the sun go down behind the mountains, and an abundance of summer herbs to forage.
Today, I’m over at the Herbal Academy, sharing 9 of my favorite summer herbs to forage with you. These herbs are abundant here in the South this time of the year, and depending on where you live, they may be blooming in your backyard, too! Come see what they are as well as how to identify and harvest them. Don’t miss it!
