Hooo-eee. It has been a long day. And tomorrow is another early start. We are pooped. Especially our sweet #Izzyfrizzy. She had a long day napping and judging us. Those are the two things she does best. πŸ’šπŸ˜΄πŸ•πŸ’š I wanted to figure out something deep and meaningful about being a #countryqueer for our last post, but I feel like compared to y’allz stories mine is not very exciting. I’ve had my struggles, and still do, but I’ve also been pretty privileged through my life. Supportive parents, stable housing & jobs (more or less), and a fantastic partner. I feel like it’s my job to be aware of my privilege, and try to figure out how to support other folx in the best ways possible. I often get bogged down in the day to day, but I’m getting there, little by little. I am definitely privileged to be part of this community of really rad folx. Thank you Rachel for curating #CountryQueers. Thank you all for sharing and reading. It is my honor to be amongst you. Let’s keep taking care of each other. πŸ’šπŸŒΏπŸŒ»This is @kingandkingranch, signing off. πŸ‘‹πŸΌ. #nonbinaryfarmers #farmdog at Fillmore, California

I think I first became interested in growing herbs because @kaikrupa is an amazing, intuitive, creative chef, and I loved (and still love!) the idea of being able to grow things for them to utilize in the kitchen. Also, my parents are hippies and I would often get β€œherb drops” as a remedy to a cold or other ailments as a first response. It’s only been in the last several years that I’ve really come to find a passion for growing herbs of all sorts - culinary & medicinal, and am slowly learning how to use them. There are a couple fantastic queer herbalists I follow on IG - @catalystcommunityherbals & @ergifarmsandapothecary that have been very inspiring. And I also recently started participating in an intuitive plant medicine course offered by @onewillow_apothecaries, who btw is a great ally who openly encourages conversations about cultural appropriation and is aware of pronouns within the lgbtqai+ community. 🌻🌱✨ Last December the Thomas Fire broke out right across the valley from us (California’s largest recorded wildfire), and we watched it creep across the mountains every day and night, feeling utterly helpless. I was worried about some family and friends who were in the thick of it getting smoke damage to their lungs, had read about horehound being really beneficial to lung health, so I decided to make a tea for them, since we have horehound growing wild. I consulted on the mix with @catalystcommunityherbals , and quickly dried the appropriate herbs in the hot dry winds that were fueling the fire. It was the first time I felt like I could do something helpful/useful in those overwhelmingly stressful days/weeks. πŸ˜”πŸŒΏπŸ΅. The last pic is the resulting tea recipe. I’ll give descriptions of the other pics in comments. Thanks for reading another long post.
