Thanks, Pappy!

I think so, too.  At present, I don't have all those plants growing, but I'm expanding my herb planting each year.

It's nice that things that are tasty enough to make a big difference in a meal are also sometimes so healthy for us.

Two other facets of a couple of those herbs: mint helps release bile, making it easier to digest fats, and fennel seed is sometimes recommended to control flatulence.

Using the dried leaves of ragweed as a tea can also be used to control flatulence.

Marie,

That assumes that one is not allergic to ragweed.

I think I will try growing Fennel for some friends of mine. They could really use it!
