Quite hardy, lemon balm is one I always go to for treating Momma rabbits after kindling. It's very easy to dry in hanging bunches and several of our rabbits happily finished up our last bits in February.
Last year we used the lemon balm to scent a swarm trap for honey bees. 'Dad' ended up using it to bring a hive home from an abandoned building instead, so I cannot account for its efficacy. I do value the benefits of its heady fragrance when rubbing the leaves and enjoy adding it to teas and cool water in the summer. I intend to add more of it to our herbal apothecary this year and our diet as I've learned more of it's ability to enhance thyroid regularity, mental clarity, and it's antibacterial qualities.
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; Psalms 104:14
Reading of George Washington Carver, we learned how much God can reveal about his plants, if we make him the One we go to for understanding. We were amazed at the hundreds of uses for Sweet Potatoes and Peanuts, not to mention George's dedication to time with Lord ~ every morning. What an amazing account of the miracles in creation that defy our limited understanding.
Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Deuteronomy 32:1-2
