Mama's Mama always had a way to grow as much of what she needed as possible, even if that was just a pot of herbs on a sunny windowsill. Everything she grew was one less expense at the store and a source of fresh food or medicine for her family.
Each month the Grow This section features a different herb that can be grown indoors. These are generally hardy plants that dont' require a lot of special care, yet provide a lot of benefit. Some will be herbs to cook with and some are traditionally medicinal herbs, many are both.
When it comes to medicinal herbs, please use your judgment. I strongly recommend getting a good herbal medicine book and studying it. The uses I list here are tradiational ones and not specific cures or recommended treatments for any medical condition. If you think you need to see a doctor, you probably do and nothing here is a replacement for that.
