The Essential Herbal Nov/Dec 2008 issue is out!

We're drawing a close to another year here at The Essential Herbal. Another year full of incredible information, people sharing their love of the plants and what they can do for us, stupendous recipes, ways of doing things... it just amazes me how much I keep learning. That makes 8 full years of continuous publication. Can you believe it? I look over the contributors we've had sharing with us this year, and am again amazed. Our regulars are terrific, and continue to come up with fascinating ideas for us.
Additionally, I've asked subscribers on the magazine's yahoo group to send me notes of "what they want" in their herb magazine. They've sent in some really well thought out ideas and we will be putting some of them into place immediately. We've always tried to make sure there was enough in each issue that everyone would feel they had their money's worth, and I think we managed to do that. Now, with the country in the state it is in, we need to make doubly sure. So... if you have a skill with herbs that you'd like to write about, we'd love to hear from you. If you think there is something we should be doing that we aren't, we'd like to hear about that too. We can't promise to do everything, but we can't try if we don't know. Of course, everyone likes to hear what they are doing right, and we aren't adverse to some encouragement :-).
So here's the next issue. We think you're going to love it!
