Open in the morning, close at noon, it’s time for lunch, get home soon! Indeed, you can set your watch by Chicory as his flowers fade as soon as the sun is high above in the sky. Also known as blue daisy, blue dandelion, blue sailors, coffeeweed, cornflower and wild endive, this weedy cousin of Dandelion is the subject of this month’s issue of Herbal Roots zine.
You’ll have fun learning all about Chicory with full 9 pages of recipes, 9 pages of games, lots of fun crafts, and a song to sing and a story to tell.
What’s new with this issue? We are changing the Calendar page format, allowing the calendar to be useable for any time of the year, breaking down this issue into 4 week blocks. Our biggest issue ever, this issue is over 50 pages long! We love our Chicory around here!
