home ALL the ticks. Seriously, I think I've found almost 10 on my person, on the clothes I was was wearing, and in the vicinity of where I dumped the clothes I was wearing.

My jaunt in the woods was totally worth it, though, because I found wild chamomile, plus abundant wild catnip. The conservation area also has oodles of blackberry bushes, and I've been practically salivating thinking about when those babies are finally ripe.
