And yes are very correct...I wanted some bottled hops! Still do. Might ease my shoulder stress & strain! Hahaha!

Thanks for all the resources on horseradish guys! Gonna pop over to amazon & to the richters site. Just one small piece is all I need! I know it can be invasive but that's ok.

Angela I'm interested in your growing ginger. Would love to grow ginger but I thought it was more of a tropical plant & liked the warmer weather. all time favorite flower. I can grow African violets so easily. I know they're tough for some but I can grow them. My grandmother could grow anything & she had tons of them. When she passed they were dividing up her stuff they asked what I wanted. All I wanted was a violet & my asshole grandfather said no. So what did I do? My aunt and I crawled in the window & swiped one! Hahaha! She had so many! Anyway I've been able to grow them ever since. I think Granny helps me with them!

Did I miss anything? Oh yeah. Angela is stalking me. Ha! Stalk right're welcome to stalk me. I learn a lot when people try to "bother" me! *cackles*

I have a couple of cats that like to eat plants in spite of my providing valerian, catnip and cat grasses. One ate an asparagus fern down to the base, fortunately it grew back and wasn't toxic to the cat. Many plants are toxic to cats and dogs, I didn't know until Demeter posted that hops was toxic to dogs, for example.


You must have a wonderful place. I knew hops grew well in England, didn't Londoners go down to Kent every year for the harvest? Do they still do that? I didn't know it could take over, I've only grown hops in a planter.

I love the picture, Demeter. Too bad it's not good for dogs or I'd grow some. Looks beautiful. And having to worry about it choking out other plants. I have to say to all how much I love looking at the lovely pictures everyone shares. I may be able to work with wood, wool, and metals (sometimes), but I stink at the computer. I wish I could do some of the things I see others do with it.

Hop canopy... before it went too mad.

Comment by Demeter yesterday

hi all

Be careful if you decide to grow hops.  I used to have a hop plant in a big pot and when it grew too big I planted it in the garden and thought it would make a nice shady canopy - which it did for one year, and then it went wild, and grew all over the place and it had prickly stems and leaves so when I cut it back it would irritate my skin, and then I discovered that hops are poisonous to dogs too.. I don't have a dog but it is something to consider.  I did make some hop pillows from the dried hops but don't grow them in the garden now.

I think Amethyst wanted some 'bottled hops' lol

Jasmine, it sounds like you are a real craftswoman, making greenhouses and altars as well wow

Lovely picture Adolpha.. loved the butterfly.

Have a great day everyone x
