Foraging medicinal weed-herbs
« on: March 29, 2016, 07:19:19 PM »
So it's been a while since I've been around due to illness but the good news is I'm still around. That being said I have become more interested in alternative medicine and healing herbs.  This past year my DH and I got serious about growing herbs and foraging those that easily found.  This is our list of easily forged herbs found growing wild here in Colorado:  Mullien (forged from our daughter's land and from our gun range- haha we go shoot and then weed the range), and these from our yard: Hops, Catnip, Burdick and Mallow.  If anyone would like a simple list of the healing properties of these herbs just ask and I will post it here.  Also I will post in the garden thread the list of what we grow intentionally.

So please add to this post any herbs you forage and what area/state they can be found.

It could be worse.  I once saw the no-naughty-words function on a forum autocorrect somebody's name from Burdick to Burthingy.
