I once read on some native plant facebook page, in regard to Roundup being the friend to native plant protectors.  In reference to the destruction of noxious weeds.  I thought to myself, we are a bit lost.  I have allowed every plant to grow on this property, noxious weeds and all.  If there is an abundance of honeysuckle, I think maybe I should perhaps learn to weave baskets.  I never think what a nasty obnoxious plant. I have curtailed my ragweed plants to three little patches.  But I don't think I will ever eradicate them entirely.  
I think it is ok on the honey.  Afterall, bee pollen and local honey are consumed for allergies.   The worst hay fever I have ever had was many years ago.  My oldest daughter said let's make ragweed tea, maybe that will help.  We had tried all the other herbs, available to us on that rugged mountaintop in Arkansas.  It worked like a charm.  We were ever so grateful for the relief.  I appreciate your car and concen for your customers. Yes, I think I always miss the seed collecting time somehow.  Maybe this year.  Thanks for bringing this thread back up 💜
I concur.  If I could only have one wild plant, I would choose violet.

Thank you. My instinct told me that it would be ok.  I am glad you have had good experiences!

I am adding to my forest.  Planting some wild blueberries and american hazelnuts on the edges of the area.  In the center I am adding to apple trees.  I am creating guilds.  I want to retain as many wild plants as possible in this process.  I have many violets in the area.  I also thought of alpine strawberries for the guild.  Would it be possible to have both violets and alpines beneath apple trees?  Or is that too competitive? Thanks.

I looked on The site for the book.  I would suggest also adding a pdf format.  Some don't do audio.  Some don't do Kindle for various reasons.  I love getting things in pdf format.  It offers flexibility.  I guess you could lose some on those who share it though.  Is there a way to protect that format? I am not sure.  Looks great.  Can't afford currently but will put on !y list.
Thanks Gerry  No one can see us either.  Lots of trees and fairly remote.

I am going to bring this thread back up.  Is it possible to vent out a window if a fan is used.  I want to replace the propane heater in the living room with a rocket stove.  I don' t know if I have the skills to make a chimney.  Thanks!

My mom is going to use it for her camper, for now.  She has a brain injury and tends to do things without thinking through.  Then, I deal with aftermath. Lol. So she didn't contact anyone, she just had it done.

We are adding dwarf and semi dwarf apple trees. I have a question about Cripps Pink/Pink Lady.  I am not a fan of patented plants, and I don't normally grow them.  Yet, our family is a huge fan of this apple.  My research indicates that only certain truly pink Cripps receive the designation "Pink Lady".  Does that mean that I can purchase a Cripps Pink tree and somehow be unattached to said patent? Thanks!
