Beautiful! I had meant to add that I will send some seeds for the New Bees giveaway. I give away seeds on the Seed Trading forum but somehow have never been over here.

The middle is a Lily I will check the tag when I go out!!

The box has left my hands and is now enroute to the winner.
I am gathering Hollyhock seeds, (single pale pink and double white) can someone jump in here and let me know how long they need to be in the freezer to kill off any little hitch hikers?

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

Velvet leaf

Velvetleaf (Abutilon theophrastii) -

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

Hmm I wonder where I got that!!! Is it hardy to my zone even?

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

Wow it's edible!! http://www.eattheweeds.com/velvet-leaf-fiber-and-food/

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Considered to be a noxious , annual weed ,,

So is my stinging nettle , considered to be that kind of weed , but I still like it for tea ..
How did us modern peoples decide all this anyway?
Hmmm now I'm wondering about Mallow seed treats ,..lol?

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

Yes it says the seeds are edible of this one!! I use every scridge of my nettles for something!! Scridge is that a word...?I use mallow too in my tea just wasnt familiar with this one I will be trying it through:) Thank you

Clarksville, TN(Zone 6b)

Good work, ju. Nettle tea - good stuff.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Thank you C_ville !!! Congrats on your prize puzzle solving too!!!

Scridge? I've heard that in an story someplace ,, You spoke it so a word I guess it must be.

So many plants and so many thought to be something other than they are ..

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

You named that so fast maybe you will know these too!! I have one more!!
#1 Artemesia
#2Basil
#3 Tickseed ?
#4Acalypha rhomboidea or A. virginica

Like this? I dont think Basil though it seem to be a native plant the one with the purple flower is native too.
Prize hmm let me think!! Seeds of any of the plants identified? Or some of whatever I make with them if they turn out to be herbal !! And usable!!

Keep looking! No to basil. Is there a prize?

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

YOU SURE, THE SECOND, FIRST Group sure looks like a Lime Basil just starting to bloom , right time of year if it's recent ..
Blooms do suggest a mint , lemon perhaps , back when there are more bloom

Well, here is the contest prize from mittsy!! It turned out to be a box full of things. So much ... the daylilies, several irises, Rose of Sharon, toad lily, sedum, some herbs, and four baggies full of seeds of various kinds. (The candle and coconut oil are mine.) :)

mittsy, you blew me away!! Thank you so much for your generosity. :)

Wow, they don't look very fresh. My receipt says it was to be delivered Wed. Guess the 2 day priority is worthless.
