Calendulas, also known as pot marigolds, are a fun new addition to our garden this year. They are cheery looking, and they help ward off tomato hornworms, cabbage worms, and a variety of beetles. You can also eat the flowers, or use the dried petals in place of saffron to color (not flavor) things like rice and butter.
I love our calendulas so much I asked Zach to cut me some calendula rubber stamps.
And then he surprised me by making some other stamps too, inspired by our wildflower patch. So here's my new collection of custom-made flower stamps. I can't wait to use them!
