Herbs in Bloom

The tarragon is now 4 feet tall and started to flower.

The flowers are edible.


If you or a relative has high blood pressure, then we suggest you plant this herb. It's called "cat's whiskers" locally called (guess what) "balbas pusa" because its flowers look like cat's whiskers. This herb grows abundantly in rural areas but they call it taheebo - it is not. Taheebo is a tree and the part used for tea is its bark. Unlike cat's whiskers where we use the leaves for making tea or even salad.


A closer look at the flowers, no doubt, they really look like cat's whiskers.

hello,

the weekend market is open every saturday and sunday, from 5am to 4pm on saturdays and 5am to 11am on sundays. it's best to go during saturday morning to get the freshest produce.
