Sept/Oct '16 issue - The Essential Herbal

If you've been hanging around with us for a while, you know that the new issues always go up on the 15th.  This year, we've had a few go up early as we run out of the previous issue.  We have about 3 of the Jul/Aug issue, and we need to keep a few here - so we're moving on to the next one!  We're pretty happy about that, because running out of an issue is GREAT!  If you're just finding out about us, come on over to and subscribe.  But you know... don't wait TOO long.

I expect the same thing to happen with the issue that's just mailed out on the 10th.  It's a beaut, and you are going to love it.  First, the cover is simply amazing.  Carey just continues to provide us with beautiful art, and these colors are like jewels.  The twinkling eyes ...

Then there is the content.  Just a whole lot of beautiful stuff.  A perfect blend of medicinal, culinary, and crafting, there is (as always) something for everyone.
