Re: What's wrong with my thyme plant?

Sounds like too much water or not enough. Insufficient light may the issue as well.

Re: New herbal pet course?

I'll be doing some more pet-specific modules. I'll probably write a book as well.

Re: lash eggs in chickens

I've heard some folks have luck putting garlic into the water and that the birds will sometimes drink it OK if it's changed daily.

I've never seen it. Looks like a lot of the other Salvia species. I'd guess it has similar properties if it's in that genus.

Re: Red Baneberry

Baneberry (Actaea arguta) and black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) are cousins. Michael Moore talks about it in his book Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West. He has used it without issues. I've only used black cohosh.
