THYME

A beautiful aromatic scent and one of the most useful culinary seasonings. It is one of the main ingredients

food. Suits food cooked slowly in wine, particularly meat, shellfish, poultry and game. It imparts a pungent
flavor to soups, stews and stuffings. Use cautiously when picked fresh, as it is extra pungent.
Thyme has strong antiseptic properties. The tea makes an excellent gargle or mouthwash, and is an
excellent remedy for sore throats and infected gums. The essential oil is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and
used in the manufacture of toothpaste, mouthwash and gargles. A few drops of the oil added to the bath
water helps ease rheumatic pain, and it is often used in liniments and massage oils.

SHADE
Pungent green horseradish-like condiment from Japan, a must for sushi and sashimi. Myths that wasabi would not grow
outside of Japan have been firmly rebuked in recent years by American growers who are not only growing it
successfully, they are growing better wasabi than the often adulterated product sold in the stores. Traditionally grown in
beds of sand or gravel near cool mountain streams, we now know that wasabi will grow quite happily in any moist,
organic-rich soil where there is shade and protection from the summer heat -running water is not required. After 18-24
months the rhizomes are harvested, washed, peeled and grated for fresh use. In zones colder than zone 8, it is
possible to overwinter plants by heavy mulching or by moving them indoors over winter.
