The boneset returned this year even stronger, with more stems, than last year. (This photo shows the boneset plant from a year ago.) With the recent knock-down rainstorms, many of the boneset stalks toppled. After waiting for the boneset to dry thorougly for a couple days, I harvested a good portion of it.
First, I made a tincture . . .
And then I hung the remaining stalks for the leaves to dry . . .
I can hear you asking, “What is boneset good for?” I don’t have a good answer for you since I’m still learning the answer myself. For now, I am simply grateful for the harvest and the means to preserve it.
