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

Native to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, this herb
is an antiinflammatory and is sometimes used as an arnica
substitute.  It is a counterirritant.  Make a concentrated
tincture of the fresh or dried flowers (concentrated) or
whole plant (somewhat weaker) and use externally, as if it
were Arnica.  Yerba del Lobo also tends to grow in
association with arnica, although it is much more robust
than Arnica, is taller, and tends to form dense clumps.
Gardeners like it because the plant produces an easy
yearly florific display.  Plant prefers moist, regular garden
soil and part shade to full sun.
WASABI
Wasabia japonica
TENDER PERENNIAL-ZONES 8-10
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.
