Healing Wise ...
with Susun Weed

Fall Weed walk part 2

Some help for you in distinguishing between cronewort and lamb's quarter. But the real way to tell the difference is simply to smell. Cronewort is aromatic and lamb's quarter is not.



Cronewort
These small flowers start out green, then gradually become reddish, purplish



Lamb's quarter
These flowers are smaller and rounder. They start out green and gradually get browner.



Both
Here they are together.

Where are those anthocyanins? Let's keep our eyes open as we meander about with the goats. I am sure we will see some purple leaves, and perhaps some purple berries as well.


Shiso

The purple leaves of shiso are loaded with anthocyanins. Capture the antioxidant power by making a vinegar of the leaves. Now! Winter is coming and the leaves are already falling off. Yes! You can pick them up off the ground for your vinegar if you waited a little too long.



Wild Mint
My wild mint turns purple in the fall, and that is when I make my vinegar, so it is another source of healthy anthocyanins to protect my lungs during the winter. I also make honey from the wild mint, but the vinegar extracts the coloring in a way the honey does not.



Elder berries
The blessings of Elda Mohr are endless. Her berries are proven to prevent the flu, even really, really bad flus like bird flu. And her berries can lessen the duration of the flu (if you already got it) by half. Wow! We will talk lots about elder berries during the Winter Remedies class. You may also want to listen to my HealthyLife.net radio show for October, which focuses on elder berries.

 

Poke berries
In most areas there is still time to harvest some poke berries to dry. They are swallowed like pills to counter joint pain; they even seems to work against the joint pain of Lymes Disease. Try them this winter and let me know what you think.



Rose hips
So pretty, but these little wild rose hips are not very useful. If you happen to live near a planting of Rugosa roses, grab those hips now. They make a wonderful vinegar or a jam that counters colds and the flu all winter long.



Mullein (Verbascum Thapsus)
This is one of the plants we will be focusing on in the Winter Remedies class. There is still lots of time to put up a tincture of mullein leaves or to harvest some to dry, though I have already done most of my mullein harvest for dried leaves and stalks for infusion.
