    hi gang. just joined up. i'm in washington state, USA. can't resist a plant database. i'm always looking to ID plants i've photographed. i make paper from noxious weeds and invasive plants, so it's good to know what i'm pulling out of the ground.

    Hi sunnisan, welcome to the Stew. Glad to have you with us. Paper is a very good use for noxious weeds. My saying is, "a dead weed is a good weed".

    Hi from Lake Tapps, Washington. Welcome to a fun and informative forum. Open invite for you to come on down to harvest weeds from my garden. :D Great idea on what to do about noxious weeds. Hope you post some pictures of what they look like, both pre and post production.

    Welcome from Texas. I have lots of weeds, also. Due to the drought conditions, weeds are about the only thing that grows right now. There are lots of things on Gardenstew though. Hop in and look around.

    Hi Sunni... and welcome from SE Texas.
    Although I have no desire to make anything out of weeds... it does sound very interesting. Hope you share your process with us... and any "non-weeds" you have growing too.
    :-D

    Welcome from Wisconsin. I love the different terrain one has in the state of Washington and Oregon. I loved walking on the coast and looking for neat driftwood when I vacationed out there many moons ago. Anyway, this is a great group. Looking forward to seeing pic's of your garden and handmade paper. What a neat idea. :stew1:
