Summer rainbow over our pot of gold!
And we mean BAAADDDAAASSS!!!!
Us over here in the Garfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh have been working tail to head on our gardens. By the end of this post we have harvest 5lbs of rasberries, 2 quarts or more of gigantic sweet blackberries, lavender, chocolate mint, peppermint, spearmint and we are just getting started!!!
Because of our good friends Jen and Jon – we have bees buzzing in their lovely hives, drinking up water and pollinating our crops! Apples and grapes are growing well this year and everything is in bloom!
Can’t wait for greenhouse tomatoes, celery, strawberries, okra, watermelon and fresh in the raised beds – swiss chard, summer squashes, more tomatoes,macha, sweet peppers and more! You can see we are over the hazy moon here at Healcrest!
Dried Lavender for final inspection
Dana, fresh off the job market – is taken her hours to cultivate Healcrest and get orders out on Etsy! If your a loyal Etsyian – feel free to email us or ask any question – we will surely answer you as swift as we can.

Borage Bee Balm
Red Clover Lemon Verbena
Chocolate Min Mountain Mint
Lemon Balm Rugosa Rose
Rasberry Leaf Blackberry Leaf
Bamboo Leaf Chamomile
Chaste Berry Nettles
And the amounts we have of this will just expand each year! Now please enjoy the pictures as they tell the 1000 words better than I ever could!
