    They say if there’s jewelweed, there’s poison ivy nearby. I’ve almost always found it to be true. We’ve got lots of both here. :((

    Jewelweed can be used with other plants as an antidote to poison ivy. I’ve made tinctures that worked on milder cases.

  3. Love those sparks. Keep them coming.
