Calendula from the Yard-en

Blooming on Schedule

I have never grown calendula before, but I got some seeds at our local market from someone else with a yard-en (garden that covers the entire yard) and planted the seeds last fall. Finally I have plants!

So I am trying my hands at infusing an oil...I've never done this before (grew it or infused the oil). I will let you know how it goes; if you have any advice, leave a comment!

My colleague, Jade Shutes, has a great Calendula PDF on her school's website. It says that that the name Calendula comes from the plant's affinity to bloom on schedule. How funny, we thought, because we've been working to bloom on a schedule!
