About ten days ago or so, my discount grocery had herbs in four inch pots inexpensively. I picked two lemon balm plants because I like it, bees and hummingbirds like it, and it's nice to dry and save.

Picked an ordinary herb - basil, I think, and the fourth plant I thought was another ordinary herb. Went to plant it today and discovered the most amazing surprise! It's actually Stevia! You know, the natural sweetener? No calories or bad stuff? Whoaa! So my iced tea all summer will be better than ever!

Started researching it and found this link people might like: [link to www.motherearthnews.com (secure)]

I didn't realize it could be found so easily - just assumed it would be a special-order item. Y'all might want to think about purchasing and growing Stevia - only need one or a few plants because you can make new plants easily from the original.

I'm excited about this wonderful accidental purchase!

I'll have to try stevia sometime, it's been on my "avoid" list because I lump it in with all the other no-calorie sweeteners that give me intestinal distress and headaches. But a fine addition to your herb garden!
 Quoting: Lowkey Cyberpunk

I use organic stevia all the time. Since it's a plant and not a chemical concoction, it doesn't seem to have the physical effects - but, of course, your mileage may vary.

It is not difficult to grow, but I'd grow more rather than less, because sweet stuff may be at a premium and being able to trade some might make you "rich" in the SHTF world.
