What are you planning to use to pipe that water around the property?

So now begins the experimental herbalism. There are really two experimental questions: (1) does yarrow leaf tincture offer similar benefits (pain relief and reduction of inflammation) as the root tincture; and (2) even if it might, how much of these virtues may be realized from frost-stunted, semi-dormant winter foliage?
Thus, today I went out and foraged a pint jar full of the best and most lush yarrow leaves I could find. The weather was super fine in the low 60s, and it took very little time, most of that spent separating out a few random frost-tolerant weeds and dried grass stems. I gave my leaves a rinse in cold water (to remove bug detritus and random dirt, and for psychological comfort, seeing as how there's nowhere on this property that my huge dogs might not have peed since the last time it rained) and set them steeping in vodka.
I'll update further as events warrant. I am not expecting super potency, but I am curious what I get and whether/how it works for me.

Here is the first try. We thought that in this spot, the water would be about 8 or 10 feet deep. So we dug a 16 foot deep hole.

I didn't see anything on Jung Seed about backorders...
But at this rate, I probably missed it.
