Weeds everywhere, especially in my kitchen. Oh yes the green stuff has invaded and there are bunches of them everywhere and all sorts of lotions and potions bubbling away with weedy wonders inside them.
My weed collecting has not gone un-noticed by the locals. I have been spotted of an evening or during the run (sorry jog) in the morning clutching bunches of chickweed, horsetail and even nettles. “I’m not even going to ask what you’re up to” said Tom as he caught me clambering out of the hedgerow the other day. The fact that I was covered in sticky willy and bearing a basket of weedy cuttings just looked too bizarre for words.
While most people curse the dreaded weed I have been skipping (oh God too much excersice info here) about collecting the damn things.
I haven’t lost the plot completely, it is for my latest TV slot on “The Hour” this afternoon. I’ll be making nettle hair rinse, prehistoric nail dip and cool chickweed skin soother.
If you can’t see the show I will hopefully put up a you tube video on the Media Tart page soon as possible.
Anyway, best away and head out with my trusty trug to go a gathering and get some lovely weedies to take to the studios this afternoon.
