The Whole Herb
Herbs have so many uses that I think of them as Nature's treasure plants. In my new book, The Whole Herb (Square One Publishers, 2004; $14.95), I've simplified growing herbs and covered the many ways you can use them in your kitchen, craft room, or medicine chest. Don't miss out on the fun you can have working with these incredible plants.
