plant sharing

Postby WhiteHorse » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:21 am

Hi all
would anyone be interested in plant sharing? There are some plants that don't grow here and I would like to get fresh for making tinctures. I would love to trade for some of the things that I can harvest here!

WhiteHorse,
Let's talk :D
I live on a farm with a very large herb garden, we are working toward growing herbs to order and u/we pick offering as well, we have a wooded wild area and we ethically wildcraft (we just had a big blow come through which took down some cottonwood branches which were loaded with resinous buds).
What do you have in mind? You and I are at different latitude and different coasts, I'm in Oregon...this could be good lol

Yes we are. I'm looking for fresh Osha, Echenacia Angustafolia, Arnica montana flowers for starters. I may try growing Arnica and echenacia.
I am pretty much starting over here (long story) and am devoting much more time to the plants than I have been able to for many years. I have some ginseng here but not enough to harvest yet.
I have a large forest and the mushrooms are often prolific.

I recently finished building a high tunnel so I will be able to grow some plants that need a slightly warmer environment!

Lady,
Do you have ramps at your place?

No ramps, I want to seed the place!
Eating Chickweed, Miners Lettuce, Wood Sorrel, Dead Nettle, Wild Cress and am eagerly awaiting my neighbors 'wild' invasive Horsetail.

Ahh. Ramps! I have been planting the whole plant rather than seeds. I buy a pound and plant half. They used to be (poor man's food) but are now a delicacy and the price has skyrocketed around here. they are one of my favorites! The chick weed is coming up here and the nettles are just starting to peek their heads up. what I call cukoo weed (Cardamine hirsuta) some folks call bitter cress has been up for a while. It actually makes itself available all winter when there isn't snow! I'm looking for some horse tail to plant here. I think a friend knows of a patch that I can forage from!
