Currently, there are huge areas of Purple Deadnettle cropping up alongside the Henbit and the Chickweed. These are not to be missed. As you will note from the photos you can see that the top of the plant is adorned with purple leaves whilest the bottom of the plant remains green. Too, the flowers of the plant are similar to tiny snap dragons which allow little bugs to alight on the lower lip of the flower, enter the blossom, and have the top of the blossom bob down and put pollen on the back of the insect. This, in turn, repeats itself over and over again with the result being pollination.
- A good handful of chickweed
- Walnuts, or hazelnuts
- A couple of cloves of garlic, or some ramson leaves
- Juice from a lemon
- Olive oil
- Parmesan cheese
Soon we will put up our schedule of events for the forthcoming season. We have added a local service - identifying edible plants/mushrooms on personal property. For further information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's looking forward to a robust spring, a plethora of wildflowers and an abundance of mushrooms.
