Winter’s pharmacopeia

t
He fruits and weedful plants that swell
through frost and sl
Eet and occasional snow
who lovingly b
Are themselves to us
at 
Local when we require them most
when i
T is cold and we fall sick
t
Hey offer free preventatives
rosehips and 
Chickweed
w
Atercress and feijoa
cit
Rus and stickyweed
garlic from c
Ellar
berries 
From hawthorns
p
Reserved as fruit leather
hon
Ey bottled
from th
E flowers of summer
