In Basket: September 2010

Dear Herb Companion,

FIVE MINUTES BEFORE this picture was taken, Kyra said, “Mommy, I got up before anyone else!” She loves the pretty, colorful pictures of all the herbs. She said to tell you her favorite herbs are lamb’s ear (because she likes that it is soft to feel), mint (she loves to pick leaves when she’s out playing and eat them), and catnip because Mommy sprays her to keep “skeeters” off of her.

I HAVE RECENTLY been introduced to The Herb Companion. What a wonderfully informative and colorful magazine. In your March 2009 issue, you have a great article, “The Humble Cabbage.” There was no mention of a cabbage tree. I was recently at a community seed fair in my hometown in British Columbia and there were cabbage trees for sale. Have you ever heard of this plant?
