Growing a Queen's Garden

|| GROWING A QUEEN’S GARDEN ||
~ a note from Mandalyn King ~

|| PLANTING A SEED ||
For years, I grew up helping my mother in her garden. Fascinated with the flowers, the vegetables and the beauty that she tended, yet never understanding what labor and love went into creating that beauty. Decades later, I married a King and we relocated to Colorado Springs, where he deployed to Afghanistan one month after we moved into our first home. My mother arrived for overall support and hours later, we started on my first four raised garden beds, made from wooden scraps, given to me by my father-in-law. We spent hours pick-axing the lifeless, hard, clay ridden earth; adding nutrients as we went. I poured many hours into those garden beds, that year. Thankful to put my focus on creating life, instead of placing worry on things I couldn't change. Only growing the simple basics of tomatoes, squash and beans, I learned the sacrifice, the labor and the love that went into the gardens my mother tended, when I was a child.

|| GROWING THE GARDEN ||
Soon, I began to graduate into growing culinary and medicinal herbs and flowers, combining the hand-dried florals into herbal infusions; steeping and tasting, finding the best collections of flavors and blending those with others, per their medicinal and supplemental properties. While I'm able to grow many herbs, some ingredients cannot be grown at my altitude and are then obtained from a Certified Organic distributor. All of our herbal infusions are hand-blended in small batches to preserve freshness.

This journey has been a delightful, yet heartbreaking challenge, learning how and what to grow at 6300' at the base of this spectacular mountain range in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Our weather extremes include destructive hail, torrential, flooding rains, startling early and late frosts to bone dry, rainless weeks that include fire danger temperatures. These weather anomalies have pushed us each year to uncover more efficient ways to protect our hard work. With the amazing support of my family, we've continued to thrive and we are beyond thankful.

After my husband returned from deployment and finished out his military career, we started our own family and the concept of providing my homegrown herbal tea infusions to more than just family and friends, began to form. After 5 years of blending teas for our small circle, The Queen's Teapothecary was launched on August 8, 2015. Since then, our products are now found on Etsy & Gourmly and our website launched in February 2016!

|| THE PASSION ||
The Queen's Teapothecary developed from a desire to provide those close to me, safe, alternative remedies to Western medicine and to bring light into dark places, offering immunity boosters, calming blends and internal strength builders. In no way do I assume the place of a doctor, but growing and blending my own herbal tea, allowed me to assist others in hopes of them feeling more whole than before. I felt lost and in my darkest hour, this Garden brought me back. I want to enlighten others of the love and the tender care provided to them, as one would delicately hand-make, love and care for a Queen's Garden.
