April 2014 – Checking Out Chicory

Apr14cover

Open in the morning, close at noon, it’s time for lunch, get home soon! Indeed, you can set your watch by Chicory as his flowers fade as soon as the sun is high above in the sky. Also known as blue daisy, blue dandelion, blue sailors, coffeeweed, cornflower and wild endive, this weedy cousin of Dandelion is the subject of this month’s issue of Herbal Roots zine.
