Herbs for Mother’s Day

Every mother in early America knew her herbs. She was schooled from childhood by her own mother to recognize the useful plants to grow in the wilderness farm. Not only could she cultivate the plants, she knew how to prepare them as well. She could conjure up a potent tonic, create warm soothing teas and season each meal with pinches from the garden or her stores of dried preserved plants. This is the knowledge handed down from mother to daughter since the earliest times. It’s knowledge every woman should strive to learn today so that she too may carry on this herbal legacy.
