The seeds of Yellowdock are quite wet - all 10,000 of them! And the blood building plant signature that points to its medicine shines through this rain♥️ medicine is in the roots that feed these seeds as well as our bodies ✨🙏✨

💛 Yellow or Curly Dock ✨
Golden root, Curly leaves
Best known for its ability to help us with conditions that require cooling and drying; internally it’s a liver loving herb that is generally toning and also for poor digestion-especially of fatty foods & diarrhea (but can also act as a laxative 🤷🏻‍♀️ depending on what you need from it); externally for rashes and inflammation, among many other things. The leaves can be eaten raw, or lightly cooked, they do not freeze well, but it should be done in moderation due to the presence of oxalates, which can hinder calcium absorption. Avoid if pregnant or diabetic. In small amounts Dock is bitter and stimulates liver bile that begins the process of digestion.
I love how they rattle in the wind when they go to seed 🙏🏼

It's all about the seed 💚 These beautiful doc seeds get harvested every year, dried and ground then mixed with other seeds and turned into a wonderfully nutritious wild flour ✨#rumexcrispus #docseeds #doc #curlydoc #wildfood #wildplants #wildplanet #lovemyplants #loveplants #nature #permaculture #hedgewitch #healthyfood #sevenacres #lovemyjob #lovemylife #abundance #gratitudeeveryday #nature #thankyou

Sumac drupes, dock seeds, and a wild turkey feather.

Rumex crispus / Curly Dock: Poured some extra dyewater into an aluminum pot, along with some scrap pima cotton. Put on lid and left in sun undisturbed for four days. I like the patterning where the cotton was above water in some spots. #naturaldye #naturaltextiles #curlydock #rumexcrispus

Curly Dock (Rumex Crispus)

A widespread weed, but not nearly as common in the city as Patience Dock, which is all over the place and is commonly mistaken for Curly Dock. It generally tops out at just over a yard tall (about 1 meter) and is not as thick as Patience Dock. The easiest and surest way to tell the difference is by looking at the fruit. Compare against the fruit in the last picture of #weedalogue0342. Its young leaves can be eaten but it is very high in oxalic acid, some of which can be removed by repeated boilings. In general, it is probably not recommended as anything but an emergency food, as it can cause all sorts of potential problems such as intestinal discomfort. The Oxford Dictionary of Plant Lore lists a number of folk-medicne uses for Dock leaves, particularly as a cure for Nettle stings. It is an exotic invasive perennial from Europe. The seeds and leaves are toxic to poultry. The plants shown here were found in the southernmost area of residential South Philly in the East Oregon neighborhood.

No knife embers with gathered material. I grabbed this stuff on a walk. Rumex crispus, Heterotheca grandiflora, Erigeron canadensis spindles. Fraxinus latifolia root hearth. Chunk of quartz. First two spindles worked fine. The Horseweed was too decayed and I couldn’t get the ember by the time it drilled through. The ash root was pretty crumbly too. Very light pressure to keep from drilling through. When it comes to stone tools, I used to think I needed flint or obsidian or something other than what I had. It’s not as easy as using a mora, but you can do a lot with broken rocks.
Also, I’ve gotta be really careful with fire because California is a giant tinder bundle right now. I dumped a liter of water over the area i was using. .
