First Summer Crop – Epazote

Epazote (Dysphania ambrosioides) is a traditional Mexican herb that I have used and described in my posts before.  In English, it is known as Mexican tea or wormseed, and grows freely (sometimes considered invasive) in Southern USA, Mexico, Central America, and parts of South America.  I bought a seed packet a few years ago, spread some in a sunny patch, and I have had them self-seed and come back every late spring ever since, ready for harvest as soon as summer arrives.  This year is no different, and as seen in the photo above, it looks like a bumper crop.
