In Basket: September 2011

| August/September 2011

Dear Herb Companion, 

I WANTED TO let you know that my family and I plan to trek up to the Mother Earth News Fair early tomorrow a.m. and stay overnight to get the full enjoyment. I love your magazine.

Thanks! We had fun at the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Washington. Come see us again in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania (September 24 to 25). —Eds.

THE FIRST PAGE of your July 2011 article “3 Toxic Twins” looks like the buds on a mature garlic plant, but it was not identified. Is it a garlic bud and is it poisonous? I love The Herb Companion; it is the only magazine that I continue to keep.
