I live just south of Lexington, KY. I know which plants in my yard (and bed!) are weeds, but I don;t know their names. Can you tell me what is most common in my area and which are the best for fernenting? I have tons of one weed with scallop-edge leaves that produces a stalk of lavender blue blossoms. They’re everywhere, and they crawl. But they are very easy to pull from the roots, which come out failry intact.
Is it possible to send photos of the most common ones present in my yard?

A few pictures will help narrow down what’s growing – and make it clear which you can and shouldn’t use for fermenting!April 20, 2021 at 12:57 pm Reply
Thanks so much!
Just after I snet the question, I came upon a photo of my plant.
It;s dead nettle!

Coming back to you now wondering whether you might be talking about dead-nettle. Here’s a link – is this your weed?April 21, 2021 at 4:42 am Reply
Yes! Dead nettle is my weed indeed. It is a quite pretty little plant, but it takes over my flower bed.April 21, 2021 at 2:49 pm Reply
It is definitely worth turning into fermented tea. It’ll have lots of nitrogen and also quite a few trace minerals and all, too, especially if you plunk in a few of those roots to the mix.April 23, 2021 at 4:57 am Reply
Thanks – I’ll try it!April 28, 2021 at 10:52 pm Replyplantito_sottoPrivate messageGreenhorn
Yes! This is the only problem that I have with the dead nettle. It always, and I mean ALWAYS, takes over the flower bed.April 28, 2021 at 10:54 pm Replyplantito_sottoPrivate messageGreenhorn
Whenever you can, please share some photos with us. It will be easier for anyone who’s an expert on flowers to determine the one you’re asking 🙂
