Double Dare You-The Deb Plant Challange..

Ok, so first off as I watch the snow fly, I am the first one to admit that we are way to early on this but I am assuming that I am not the only one who is starting seedlings, will be having things going in cold frames, and greenhouse’s by next month, even if they are just slow starting under double rows.. Spring really is just around that corner..

So a dear regular reader wrote this to me!!

“Hey FG, the next time you think of some plant that “just won’t quit” – aka a “weed” – I dare (any of) you to look it up in that pfaf.org search link I left here the other day; ’cause if a weed is a useless plant, there aren’t many weeds…
And I bet you’re saying “Yeah right!”  Well, over the past year or so, I’ve started making impressions of different plants in clay and there’s only been ONE so far that didn’t have at least one other use besides being “attractive”.
So go ahead, I DOUBLE dare ya!”

Made me laugh to tell the truth, and so I am going to share the Double Dare ya love!!

Sign up for the Double Dare Ya Weed Challange, its so simple, and for all your gardeners ad cooks, you should love this one! for the rest of us, o boy are we all going to get to ideally learn something new!!

Starting in spring in your area once a month, I want you to find something growing in your yard, flowerbed, lawn, ditch or garden or park that you “think is a weed or non-useful” be it tiny plants, big plants, bushes or tree’s! and I want you to research it, report on its extra uses, (get creative here girls, can it be used as a color dye, can it be used to make cordage, can you use it for medical, herbal, compost, in a salve) and then pick on thing that can be done with it, and do and report back with a link to your site and or put it all in the comment section and I will put it up on this blog for you.

Lets go with the end of the month but I am not going to put a set date, sometimes in the last week of the month is the time to share your Double Dare You Weed Challange..

Share the love, put the challange up on your site now, and our first offical month is march, its going to start with a bang depending where you live.. put your thinking caps on girls and guys, there are things out there that can be used even in march!

I can’t wait to see all the creative things you folks are going to come up with!? So who’s up to it with me.. if we get enough folks interested in the challange, I will make a matching facebook page for the plant challange folks!

    Okay, just to make sure I’ve got this straight… Does boiling spring harvested Horsetail for tea or using wood ash from the fire to clean the glass stove door follow how you’re thinking? Can these be things we’ve learned over the years or do they have to be totally “new”?

    You know I’m not trying to be a smartass about this right?  Just trying to get people thinking (and getting into it, I hope: )  
     Oh, and I’ve figured out one I can do right now – harvest and all… This IS fun!:D
