    Parsley will yellow sometimes- usually the older leaves first. Sometimes it just needs a bit more or less water. Watering every day might be too much unless it’s a potted plant and very hot where you are. Good luck!

    owo thanks for this! I didn’t know my Bush basil was a biannual…. kind of makes me sad too cause the flowers it sprouted this year is so pretty! Though I’m glad my mints will be staying with me. Hopefully my thyme, lavender, chives, and parsley will be okay? ;w; My Italian Parsley is looking on the yellow side at the moment…. Any tips as to why it’s Yellow? Is it getting too much water not enough? We water it every day

    Hi- Lots of nurseries online carry it- even some Amazon sellers have plants available! I’m not sure where you are located but here are a few nurseries around the country that usually carry it… although some may be sold out: Greenwood Nursery (TN), MountainValley Growers(CA) White Flower Farm (CT), and Richter’s Herbs in Canada all carry it. You may find it closer to home with a Google search. Good luck!

    Thank you so much for these lessons! Do you know how I can order grosso lavender plants? I can’t seem to find then in my area, and I’m dying to have them in my garden! Thanks again

    they’re also supposed to help with arthritis as they help reduce TNF-a and other compounds that cause inflammatory in joints 🙂

    If you watched this you would have learned there are plants like nettles that are eatable only after cooking

  20. digenovafilmSep 09, 2013

    That was great thanks!!

    I LOVE butter! Not nasty at all.

    No! hot water extracted sumac makes that shit bitter as a dandelion growing in manhattan. Tannins are released this way. A gentle suntea or cold water extraction will give you all the color and tart you want (and vitamins) without leaching bitterness into it.

    This is an absolutely great video. I did notice one inaccuracy, though. What he calls henbit is actually red dead nettle. The two are commonly confused with each other which is an odd fact to me because they are easily distinguished from the other.

    This guy knows how to ruin some good food with nasty animal fats.

    Title of the DVD is: Edible Wild Plants III Trees, Shrubs, Nuts & Berries – The Forager’s Dozen by Jim Meuninck and Jim Duke, PhD (… by Jim Meuninck and PhD Jim Duke (2008)

  26. Mike KrebillSep 09, 2013

    The DVD is updated and contains more info.

  27. Mike KrebillSep 09, 2013

    Hi Alan! Glad to see this accessible online. Hope you were kind enough to get permission from my friend Jim Meuninck, who produced it, to put it online. For anyone wanting to buy the DVD from Jim, it costs $19.95. Do a Google search for Jim Meuninck and go to the herbvideos site. The quality is far better than this YouTube rendition.
