Writing A Book

Sorry I have not posted for awhile.  I have been finishing an herb book which is now available for Kindle and hopefully soon for Nook.

Check out What About Herbs? and let me know what you think.

Please pass the link for the book for those you know who may be interested. Thanks!

Learning About Herbs

Herbs have been a love of mine for as long as I can remember.   When I was young the only herb I remember using fresh was parsley.  Dried oregano was something I always added to pasta sauce although my mom thought I added too much.  I love the smells and tastes of herbs whether fresh or dried.  Learning about herbs is an ongoing process for me.  I have been compiling a list of herb resources that you may want to check out.  If you know of any sites to add please let me know.

Seed Catalogs & Garden Planning

Seed catalogs are coming in the mail.  They are so fun to explore and are a great source of information and enjoyment – especially when I can’t be out working in the garden.  I can be planning my garden and yard for spring – deciding what to grow and where to grow everything.  If you haven’t gardened much in the past it is good to start with a few things – what do you enjoy eating or using the most.  Do you love tomatoes and basil?  Then those could be some great things to start with.Some of my favorite books for information whether you are experienced or a beginner:
All New Square Foot Gardening: Grow More in Less Space!
Smithsonian Handbooks: Herbs (Smithsonian Handbooks)
The Pleasure of Herbs: A Month-by-Month Guide to Growing, Using, and Enjoying Herbs
Growing & Using Herbs Successfully (Garden Way Book)

My favorite magazines include:
Herb Companion
Organic Gardening

One of my favorite sources for herb plants and seeds:
Richters

Open-pollinated and heirloom seed sources
