Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

****************************************

Readers, please send twig (twig4now@gmail.com) images and stories for the ongoing Plantidote of the Day series. In exchange, you'll win undying fame in the form of a hat tip! Plants growing in your garden, your house, or neighbor's yard, plants from the forest or farmers' market, plants you preserved, plants you prepared (wine; cider; tea; dried beans), plants you harvested (grains; chantrelles), plants you picked (flowers), plants you dried (herbs), plants you covet or hope to grow someday. Herbal remedies, propagation tips, new varieties, etc.. And if you can, include some solid detail about the plant, too -- a story, the genus and species, or where you got the seeds, or the recipe, or your grandmother gave it to you. Or challenge us with a "Name That Plant" mystery entry ... And please feel free to add corrections and additional information in the comments.

I find myself participating in this holiday more than usual for some reason. No chocolate, though! Maybe a way to counteract the zeitgeist....

It seems like a pretty benign occasion. At least, I'm not aware of Cupid being responsible for any massacres or smallpox infestations or other heinous acts. But yes, hold the chocolate, unless this situation has changed dramatically.
