      My apologies if this has already been undertaken, but as I am getting swamped by all the traffic on this, I may have deleted a final list of the Twenty Best Herbs.
      Would SKS please compile?
      Many thanks in advance.

      Thank-you all for sharing your lists of best herbs for food and medicine. To your list, I would also add plantain (plantago species); even though it is a common weed, it is good for both food and medicine (I teach wild edibles). then there is the common milkweed, of which there is also a desert variety. I have found both of these throughout the United States and Canada, and I know that plantain was brought here from Europe. I don't need to grow them in my garden as they are abundant in neighboring fields. Of the lists I have read so far (my email access is limited), I grow most of the plants mentioned and intend to add many of the others.

      In answer to Sharon's question, I would add fennel, lettuces, which have a 
      sedative effect, and perhaps lemon for those in mediterranean climates.
      Except for mustard, I have all the others on her list in the kitchen right 
      now! (Mustard was old and was composted last week.)
