Remember Me?

Yep, it's what's her name from that one gardening/health/DIY blog.  
 Last week was the birthday week so I kinda fell off the planet.  Headfirst!
Baby Lucy getting bigger!

I'm Back!  Sorta!  I'm going out of town next week, we have a SUPER sale at Mary's Heirloom Seeds going on, Lip Balms to create AND a household to run...but I plan on sharing quite a bit of good, healthy info over the next few days.

Purple Opal Basil

I've been on an Herb kick lately.  No, not the "happy" kinda herbs that are only kinda legal in a few states for medicinal purposes.  I'm talking about herbs like Basil, Yarrow, Lavender, Dill and Mugwort.  It turns out that these babies are also medicinal!
Fine Verde Basil

Check out the Health Benefits of Lemon and Basil to get you started.  Next, check out Chamomile and Fenugreek.  These should get you started.  Tune in tomorrow for more herbaceous discussion.

Oh your "happy" herbs comment made me giggle. Thanks for sharing at my Our Favorite Things Link Party.

Can't wait to read more! I don't know much about medicinal herbs yet.

I have my first linky party going on right now too, if you'd care to come link up! http://westernwarmth.blogspot.com/2012/09/weekend-warmth.html
There are no rules involved :).

Thanks!

I love growing herbs -- I freeze them in ziplock bags to use in the winter and I also dry some. Thanks for the link to the health info -- will check it out! Oh, just a suggestion -- remove the word verification -- a lot of bloggers don't want to take the time to type in these extra words :)

Thank you Lauren! I thought I had removed the word verification.
Stay tuned for more herbal info!

That purple basil could be used in a cut flower arrangement! Pretty.
