How do you make chamomile tea from a plant?

A.

First you must grow a chamomile plant (or purchase one). They normally bloom in spring, at which time you can cut off some blooms and allow them to dry in the sun. These can be stored in an airtight container, like a jar, until ready to use. Then you will take about a tsp. of the dried flowers and boil them in water for a few minutes. Strain into a cup and add sugar to taste.

Q. Weeds

What can I do in the fall to prevent a vegetable garden full of weeds when I’m ready to plant in the spring? We till the garden each fall but by planting time I have to spend hours cleaning out weeds before we can til it. The picture shows last years chamomile EVERYWHERE, clover, ragweed and various other noxious beasts!

I have 2 suggestions. 1. mulch the beds to a depth of at least 3 inches year around. Rake the mulch off to prepare the bed in spring. Weed seeds commonly fly on the wind get dispersed by birds and other animals. If you wait until fall to mulch, it is already too late. Option 2 is to plant a dense cover crop as you harvest. Hopefully it will grow quickly and choke out weed seeds. In early spring, till it under. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/cover-crops/cover-crops-for-weed-control.htm
