Here's one of my awesome apprentices, Paul, trying out my "lazy herbalist" method of harvesting ginkgo biloba leaves last week...it's tough work but someone has to do it ;)
Thanks for the great pic, Paul, or is that "pick"? I guess it's both! Ginkgo biloba leaves are best used when they're yellow or yellowing. I dry mine for infusions and use them for oxygenating the whole body, especially the brain and lungs. they also taste good. I sometimes mix them with mullein leaves and hawthorn or elder berries for a fabulous immune strengthening winter infusion!
