I have been wishing for spring and we get summer - 80 degrees today.....hmmm....glad I wasn't wishing for fall cause then we would have gotten winter.....don't shake your head - I got an email from a friend in Washington State and they are getting snow !!! I will take the summer! Tony and I worked hard the past two days in cleaning up the gardens...still not done but getting there. Our Herb Faire will start May 9th and everything must be spic and span by then (wondering if any of the young gals know what "spic and span" means....and where the phrase came from)....!!! I have been working on garden signs and herb markers this past week - getting ready for the barage of customers who will need new "garden art" for their yards. (wishful thinking)!! The third issue of THE SEEDBOX newsletter is in the store now....filled with lots of herbal recipes for sachets - keeping the ants and moths away and giving your laundry sweet herbal scents. A little surprise is tucked in the newsletter too. We have been toying with the idea to reprint a little herb booklet that we published in 1995. The artwork is amazing and was done by MaryLou Jenkins - her first "country" attempt. It has lots of its and bits of herb facts helpful for the beginner herb lover. The booklet makes a really nice gift - might just have to make up my mind to do it. It is reasonably priced and given with an herb plant would be so special. (click on pics to enlarge).
