July Blog Party: "Adventures in herbalism: What wouldn't we do for our herbs"

I'd love to host a july blog party on the following topic:

"Adventures in herbalism: or What wouldn't we do for our herbs" share with us a story of an adventure you've had collecting/wildcrafting herbs...i.e. collecting hops naked in the rain? hanging off a mountainside for elderberry collecting? eluding curious bystanders? etc etc.

Tell us the lengths you would go to, and do in the name of wildcrafting or growing your favorite herbs. What lengths and sacrifices do the herbs ask you to go to or make? What remarkable adventures have you had while being with the plants? What is the nitty gritty down right fun, dirty and challenging aspect of working with plants in the real world?

If everyone is game Submit links to articles on your blog by July 13! I will post the party July 14 or 15!

you can send them to me (


have fun adventuring with the plants!

Got into my swimsuit and waded into mucky water and leaned down and with my head barely above water, cut the roots to the Nuphar rhizome. Nuphar, Nuphar...hehe!
