To step out into the garden any time of the year promotes a feeling of tranquility and wonder. While I am in the garden harvesting, the plants seem to call out and offer their assistance. I rarely know which plants I will be choosing until I am outside perusing what is seasonally thriving.
Did you know that a plant that belongs to the same plant family as coffee may be growing in your yard? Galium aparine, also known as cleavers, is part of the Rubiaceae family. The fruit of this plant can be harvested, then dried and roasted. Brew as you would regular coffee. However, this is a tedious process. Thankfully, there are more useful benefits to growing and harvesting this plant.
