The importance of herbs
Raverne McLellan, left, of Lawrenceburg and Sue Van Patton of Versailles, both members of the Woodford Herbalists Club, harvested herbs from the Sally Robards Jouett Colonial Herb Garden at the Jack Jouett House Historic Site on Sept. 23. The herbs were tied into bunches, identified with burlap  labels and hung on a drying rack in the Jouett kitchen. Frontier women such as Sally Robards Jouett would have preserved herbs for the winter in much the same way to ensure a ready supply for cooking, repelling insects, dying textiles, and using as air freshener and medicine. The display of drying herbs was featured in the "Eye-Spy" interactive tour offered to Woodford County fourth-graders during the site's Frontier Day event last week.
