My Sage


As this piece of land was completely wild when I inherited it, there were numerous wild sage plants dotted around the area.

I decided to keep most of them while some of the plans I replanted in the spaces that are more suitable.

In the hilly, dry and rocky areas in the Mediterranean, where I am located, sage is growing wild and there is a lot of it.

People are regularly foraging it in springs and summers to dry and preserve for later use in cooking or for herbal teas.

I like to mix it with honey – one small teaspoon every cold winter morning.
