added some plants to my little herb garden this morning after a trip to the farmer’s market. i find that working with and talking to the plants is really soothing and comforting. something about getting my hands dirty.

so now i have thai sweet basil, pesto basil, oregano, cilantro, rosemary, peppermint, tri-color sage, lavendar, and lemon balm.

i just wanted to thank everyone for their kind responses to my post about my grandmother yesterday, especially to christowitch for boosting my prayer request.

my grandmother has been awake on and off in the ICU facility. one of her lungs was deflated and the other had a cut on it; many of her ribs and part of her back is broken, as well as her ankle and hips. her abdomen is extended and they aren’t sure why, and we are still waiting on some neurological test results. they want to take her to surgery, but they are having a hard time even giving her pain killers at this point because they are making breathing difficult with the lung situation. so she’s in quite a bit of pain and we’re still not really sure if it’s going to be ok.

i burned some yarrow and blessed thistle on my altar last night, and said prayers. my family and i appreciate any continued good energy or prayers sent our way. (if it matters, my grandmother is christian, my mother is mostly kemetic, and i work primarily with greek deities.) it’s been a really rough year for our family and my mother and aunt are exhausted and scared, so any comfort sent their way is also appreciated.

my grandmother has been in a car accident & flew out of her windshield.  she is being flown to a hospital, & is in serious condition.  we don’t know much, but prayers or good energy are much appreciated.

okay, so, i put my potted herb garden outside in my backyard today to get some sun… & my oregano and basil plants were dug up!  the most likely culprit, i have gathered, is squirrels.  

is there any deterrent for this that won’t hurt the little bastards?

I believe squirrels are one of the many creatures that are deterred by peppermint.  Perhaps cordoning off your pots with twine soaked in peppermint oil, or making a border with cotton soaked in peppermint oil?  Or if you have peppermint plants placing them in such a way that they “guard” the other plants.  Peppermint candy canes might also work if you don’t have access to the oil.

it makes perfect sense now that they left the other pot alone - it has a peppermint plant in it!  huh.  good to know.  thanks!
