My Apothecary & Greenhouse

I've made my own herbal concoctions for a few years now but I wanted to get more training and a certificate as an herbalist, so I have been taking courses.  I've been learning a lot and started my apothecary in my armoire in my bedroom, as it was the only place that I had available that was in the house that could store all that I will be storing.


I started yesterday washing jars and lids and drying them and filling them up, one by one.  I have a ways to go but I did a lot!  Keeping them in glass jars is the best storage and it is pretty I think.  I hope to get the rest of my herbs stored and then order new ones that I'm going to be using in making some tinctures, salves and ointments for my course.


Now, for the greenhouse.  I was originally planning to use this outside as that is what it is intended for and comes with stakes to hold down the greenhouse.  However, I decided to use it inside for my herb garden.  I will be placing it at the sliding glass door so it gets sunlight.  Lots of work for spring but I'm excited!!
