Field of Chamomile

German Chamomile
Years ago I got a seed packet of German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) which I planted because my wife thought it’d be neat to have some for herbal tea. Since then it’s nativized itself in section of the yard and so every spring I have a field of chamomile in which our ducks nest and plenty of critters hide.

Even though it’s kind of a pest, the flowers and sweet smell are kind of nice. There are worse weeds.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
