Do you remember my little Home Economics class? Two of my girls and two sisters from our church? The ones who made these cute skirts? We started our class up again and have decided to learn about herbs.
So we watched a bit of a video from the Bulk Herb Store - Making Herbs Simple.
After we watched some of the dvd, the girls got to plant some herbs.
They each planted two or three kinds. Rachel is trying Lavender - I hope it grows well for her. I had no luck growing it from seed last year!
I am going to start some German Chamomile, Italian Parsley, and some flowers this weekend.
It was fun to learn about making herbal hair treatments, and how to use them in products for your skin!
I think these are fun and useful things to learn as a part of our class.
Did you take Home EC in school? What was your favorite part of the class?
