Ouch, Burn!

I got an ice cube and held it against the burn as I Googled the best essential oils for a burn wound. Normally, I would immediately grab for Germolene, an all-in-one antiseptic ointment for cuts, abrasions, minor burns, and bites and stings, slap on a thick layer, and bandage it up. But, as you know, I've been trying to live more naturally. And this time nature bit me in the butt.


Grow, Baby, Grow!

I drastically pruned back my chili and harvested all of its fruit, and I couldn't see any new flowers budding. My basil's leaves, although delicious, were all wrinkly. I figured the alien had depleted the nutrients in the soil, and after the wind attack that killed the seedlings, I decided to help my plant babies regain some strength.
