The Essential Herbal Sept/Oct '12

 We've been a little absent on the blog lately, but it isn't for lack of activity!  All kinds of busy here on the farm, with harvesting, preserving, maintaining, and of course the magazine and soap businesses keeping us stepping.
The Sept/Oct '12 issue is headed out to subscribers now, and should be arriving in the next 2 weeks.  If you'd like to join in the fun, subscribe!  We've got plenty.  Not sure?  Click on the free issue along the right sidebar of this blog and check it out without risk. 
Here's what you'll find in the current issue:
Field Notes
During childhood, we establish our relationship with nature. Are we still playing and sharing that with the kids in our lives?
Herbal Connections, Winter Herbs, Marita A Orr
Getting our herbs lined up for the winter ahead, Marita shares her favorites and methods for use.
Grooming & Pruning Herb Plants, Michele Brown
The Herbfarmer gives advice for keeping our herbs in good shape to face the weather ahead so that they’ll be ready to spring into action as soon as the warmth and light return.
Seasonal Support, Suzan T Scholl
Lots of great herbs to have on hand, and now is the time to gather them.
From the Vault, Secrets of the Scented Bead, Carol Huettner

SouthRidge Treasures, Pesto, Mary Ellen Wilcox
Look out basil, Mary Ellen is taking pesto far beyond the usual.
Mullein the Great, Marci Tsohonis
This common roadside weed has so much to offer. Like so many plants that we pass daily, it is worth a much closer look.
Autumn Magic, Heddy Johannsen
Welcome the season by celebrating the offerings of nature in the kitchen. Cider making without a press? Hmmm…
Oatmeal—Food as Medicine, TEH Compilation
We know about oatstraw and milky oatseeds as herbal preparations, but sometimes forget that it can be much simpler and we can incorporate the same benefits in delicious every day dishes.
How to Dehydrate Lemons, Delores Harris
Dehydrated citrus can be utilized in many ways over the holidays. Great instructions for excellent results.
Pumpkin, TEH Compilation
Is it the pumpkin, the spice combination, the delicious health benefits of deep orange foods, or the seasonal connection? All of the above? We love pumpkin in just about everything.
Take Three Weeds, Sharon Wolfe Topsick
Teachings from an elder.
What is an Herbalist, Jackie Johnson, ND
Do you ever wonder about this title and what it means?
Herban Legends, Rita Richardson
Old wives’ tales? Maybe, maybe not, but interesting either way.
We're sure you're going to love this issue as much as we do.
