      hi douglas, you’re doing exceptionally well with these aromatic herbs. i was just now cooking and adding a small handful of dried summer savory (as is my wont) and thinking how simple it is to increase the antioxidant potential of our foods with these mediterranean herbs, how tasty, how kind to the digestion, and how they antidote the common ills of excess. r
