The book is truly jam-packed.  I can scarcely believe we got all that information into 440 pages.  But the source of all that wonderfulness is the magazine, so it seems fitting that we award a few subscriptions.

I missed a couple postings over the weekend, and promised that I'd make up for it, so today I have TEN of this item to award during the Nov 10 drawing.

"12 Must Have Herbs to Grow and Use" by Michele Brown of Possum Creek Herb Farm is a great little book (with beautiful color illustrations throughout) that is full of tips for the herb gardener. 10 people will find this book next to their copy of  "Through the Seasons" when it arrives in the mail.

Pre-Order Drawing - Ravenwood Gardens

Believe it or not, we're still putting the finishing touches on the "Through the Seeasons" book.  Our printer is tapping his foot, I'm certain.  Thank goodness, we have one of the best!  They rescue us from ourselves on a regular basis.
It's been so amazing to work on this.  The hundreds of recipes, hundreds of medicinal remedies, over 50 plant profiles, tons of gardening information, bath & body care concoctions (with a strong accent on soap), crafting instructions, and a wonderfully stuffed chapter of herbalists talking about being herbalists - well honestly, I'd forgotten many of them and so many of them were like new to me!
Only 21 days left to pre-order HERE

On to today's preview:

The tin is a tattoo ointment. It can be used on light scrapes, sun burns, first degree burns.  It comes from Ravenwood Gardens.  If you can't wait and need it today, you can get it from
