Do you have one and if so what's in it? We're going to try gogi berry bush this year or next, a friend's had good success with them. We have a few boxes and we're taking down a garage to make more yard room. Herbs will be a big part of that. I intend the kids to continue to plant, tend, harvest and learn along side me, they are so keen, it's adorable.
For years now I've been following Learning Herbs, a website run by a family teaching their kids about herbs as food and medicine. They came out with a great co-operative board game called Wildcraft which we bought and my kids still play with and love years later. Then then published a book series called Herb Fairies and we also ordered that. Everything they do is excellent. I bought their most recent book and registered for a learning course. I know a lot about herbs and herbal medicine but there's always more to learn they are such a great resource, plus I love the idea of incorporating more healing herbs in our every day diet.

Anyhoo, I don't often promote things but this gets my full recommendation for anybody interested in teaching kids about herbs. They are currently offering the first book in the series for free as a preview and they have lots of free recipes and videos on their site.

Ugh, it will not stop raining. Every weekend there's a lake in the back yard instead of a bunch of people helping to take down our old garage. I am sad to say there will be a lack of green things growing out there this year. Unless you count weeds, lots of those popping up. Oh well, maybe we can get things prepped this autumn so we're ready for next spring.
