Plantain plant!

My friends from Bella Terra Farm, the wonderful Joan and Paul aka the Butcher and the Vegetarian, came by for dinner!

It’s the first time they’ve visited us so we gave them the tour. After inspecting our bee hives, Joan told me a wonderful little treatment for bee stings.

She informed me that if I get a bee sting, search for this lovely little weed. Pull off one of the Green leaves and make a spit poultice by chewing up the leave and placing it directly onto the sting. Wrap a bandage onto it to hold in place for an hour, and it will draw out the bee venom.

It almost makes me eager for my next sting so I can witness another miracle from nature.

Thanks Joan!  I’ll keep you posted..

You were just saying? I'm listening...
