[quote quote=5921]I asked for and received a book on medicinal herbs for Christmas — loving it! It never occurred to me that the details of day-to-day experience in the 18th century would have a specific appeal to women. Hmm . . . food for thought. (Oh! And the growing/preparing the food! Another fascination.) [/quote]
Oh, Susan, which book did you get? There’s one on Amazon I’ve been meaning to order. I have a kitchen garden and I have found myself getting more interested in growing herbs and possibly making salves or essential oils or soaps.
