It all started when I was having constant headaches. I went to various doctors and they just kept giving me different pills. The pills all had nasty side-effects that left me as miserable as the original headaches. In desperation, I wondered if there was a natural solution to my problems. After some initial research, I found a book that I thought might be helpful and my beloved husband bought it for me as a birthday present.
The book was by Rosemary Gladstar, titled Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health: 175 Teas, Tonics, Oils, Salves, Tinctures, and Other Natural Remedies for the Entire Family. This book inspired me to grow medicinal herbs for my headaches and our other household needs. This, in turn, made me start researching culinary herbs and then vegetables and then fruits, and now, I have a WHOLE list of things that I want to research and grow myself.
I started this website in order to catalog my findings, discoveries, information, and adventures. First, I made this website for myself. It makes it easy for me to read and reread the information that I have researched from books, magazines, and various websites. Second, I made this website for others. If anyone else has been frustrated by the lack of thorough information on growing, harvesting, and using all sorts of plants like I have been, then hopefully you will find that information here. If you still find something lacking here, please let me know! I love researching and learning about new plants and I would love to expand on this website!
