The Herb Bible

Category: Life As I Know It | Posted: Fri May 16, 2014 11:18 am

When my youngest son was about ten years old he became interested in herbs. In fact, he was so into them that he used to carry around an herb "bible". He would read to us from the back seat while we were driving down the road. I heard facts about every herb imaginable and some that I didn't even know existed.

Sadly, that phase of his life came and went. He has a casual interest in herbs now, but he is far from what he used to be.

Because of his interest I started liking them more. I've tried to grow many herbs but I have to say that I haven't been very successful. I love the smell of rosemary, lavender and mint. Every time I go into a nursery I have to run my hand through the leaves just so I can smell them.

I'll keep trying to grow them even though I don't seem to be the herb expert... and maybe someday my son will wander back out in the garden with me.

I think your son will gain an interest again as he gets older EG. People often return to their first hobbies.

I'm holding out hope that he will Frank.
