How to make lavender lemonade to help relieve headaches and anxiety

Definitely going to grow a bit of Lavender this year. Hard work on the farm deserves a drink like this!

Anxiety is the third most common mental health issue worldwide, and everyone suffers from a headache once in a while.  Doctors can prescribe medications to help us fight back, and while it can be useful for some extreme cases, not everyone is going to benefit from medications.  There are natural w...

Couldn’t be happier today, I now have access to a tool that would otherwise be out of reach. As a group of small farmers and community partners, we are co-creating from the ground up! Special thanks to Asbury Church

So I've watered with my new water meter attached to the hose twice now and I used 161 and 161.1 gallons each time. Very surprised that it was so close but I guess once you're doing this everyday it becomes routine. So with the data I've now calculated that it costs me $2.31 each day to water eighteen 70 foot rows. This means it costs 13 cents each row. For my lettuce it takes 3 weeks for the first cut and another week for the second. So for 4 weeks it costs me just under $4. I can get up to $300 for the row of lettuce after two cuts and the seeds cost me only $7. This makes for a very nice profit margin! #urbanfarming #provingit

So today I bought a water meter for my hose to see how much I use each time I water and I found it to be quite interesting. I have eighteen 70 foot rows that are 30 inches wide and also have beans, peas and cucumbers along 320 ft of fencing. How many gallons of water do you think I used? Now to make it fun and help my FB page out, I'm offering $25 worth of food to the person that is closest and that also shares this post. Let the guessing game begin! Note, if you don't live in Flint but you win, I will donate the $25 worth of food to a church or a local resident.
