June is the optimum month for herb harvesting around here. I spend quite a bit of time this month wandering the hills wild harvesting and snipping herbs grown in my own garden. When July hits the Valley, the temperatures soar and the tender herbs bloom and then get a bit scraggly. It is also the time when the fruit starts becoming plentiful and I need to turn my attention to jams and syrups. So, while June is under way, I'm looking through my herbal books to find some ideas for remedies for my body and home using my harvest.
May blew by without me having time to give something away, so I'm giving away two books this month. Each book is full of recipes and ideas for using your herbs as helpers in your home and medicine cabinet. I'll throw in some of my favourite herb seeds too!
If you would like a copy of Jude's Herbal Home Remedies by Jude C. Todd or Lavender, Parsley, Peppermint and Sage (Herbal Solutions for Every Household) by Shea Zukowski, then simply leave a comment and make sure there is some way for me to contact you if you win. I'll draw the names (by a random number generator) on the Summer Solstice (June 20th.) Good luck!
