Review of Llewellyn’s 2018 Herbal Almanac: Gardening, Cooking, Health, Crafts, Myth & Lore:
The 2018 Herbal Almanac by Llewellyn Publications is a composite book of articles written by several different authors. All of them focus on Herbs and their uses, but the subjects range from care for certain herbs to building your own greenhouse or butterfly garden. The book is divided up into four sections. Each section contains several related articles. In addition to several recipes, the book contains information about various herbs. The herbs in the book are all found in various parts of the United States. Although not every herb can be found in every state, there is a good deal of variety. Some of the herbs can only be found in the Western or Eastern US, while some can be found in only the North or South.
The very last part of the book contains two tables. The first is a table of the moon phases for each day in 2018. The second table lists the best time to destroy weeds and pests.
