That sweet chamomile seed spot

There’s a sweet spot to harvest seed between tea-perfect chamomile and shattered seed all over the ground.

That sweet spot is a lot greener than you might imagine.


I grab my trusty Korean hand sickle and chop the plants a few inches above the soil surface.

I toss the plants all in the same direction on a big tarp.

When the tarp is full, I bunch it up and stack it on the wagon with the other chamomile tarps.


And off to the green house we go!


That’s where I’ll unload the chamomile plants to finish maturing out of the rain.
