Thyme On My Hands

Fun with herbs! Light, lively discussion of ways to add aroma and flavor to everyday life - cooking, crafting, and homecaring.

In 1997, she traded high heels for workboots and spent the next 11 years working for a retail/wholesale herb nursery. This radio show will discuss the lighter and more fun side of herbs - cooking and crafting, but not medicinal uses.
