One thing I’d like to do is get acquainted with the plants that are already growing in my garden. We won’t be so perjorative as to call them weeds. Some of them are quite lovely, like this yellow flower which seems to me to match the description of Sweet Goldenrod. I tried crushing the leaves and they did give off a pleasant scent which seemed rather like anise to me (though I don’t have much experience with it). I haven’t tried making tea with it yet.
