More good things with weeds.

If you aren't up to eating your weeds, then here is another good thing to do with them.


This is made from a burdock leaf, it is a stepping stone for my mom's garden.

Ohhhh! I like this, Heather. What a clever idea. I'm sure this will look quite at home in your mom's garden.

Oh! I've always wanted to do this with my Grannie's heritage rhubarb leaves. How do you do it again? I can't think of a cheekier gift to give my husband -- he deSPISEs burdock, what with the millions of plants he's has to pull out here... he he he

I LOVE it!

Anne said...

Very nice gift. I'm ashamed to say that my weeds just go in the compost. I look forward to more things to do with weeds. What's next?

Heather said...

Oh, well, since you asked Anne...you can feed them to your dog, eat them, use them as mulch for your garden, use them to make a nutritious tea for yourself or your plants (or even your dog or cat, you can make them into skin cream, hair rinse, wart remover.........;-)

Mary-Sue that is just made with cement - the boys were making stepping stones with it. We also tried som hyper tuffa but I haven't had time to go and check on it yet to see how it dried. I was planning on doing rhubarb leaves because my neighbour usually has these great, giant leaves but when I asked they showed me that the leaves were small and sad this year because they moved it. I will try some rhubarb leaves with mine as soon as I get a chance and let you know how they look.
