Growing Your Medicine Cabinet in the Herb Garden
[Editor's Note: When planning this year’s herb garden not only consider what might season your food nicely, also consider what might replace things in your medicine cabinet. Stinging nettle, chamomile, elder flower and blackberry leaf all have medicinal purposes. You can grow these herbs all spring and summer long to help with ailments such as stomach upset and anxiety. When summer ends you can dry them for use throughout the winter. - Jen]
