WARNING: The information supplied here is for identification of common garden weeds. No-one should try replace or augment a doctor-prescribed medical course with a few helpings of herbs. There is no such thing as a dose of herbs. Only a qualified and experienced herbal doctor can prescribe you a dose of herbs, but those kind of doctors are very scarce in any country where Privatised health care is a thing. For the rest of us, with an interest in keeping healthy without being poisoned, herbalism is a lifestyle. Either you take medication for every ache and pain, or you denounce your role as experimental chemistry set, and try Natural Living, which is nothing more than to take responsibility for what you put into your mouth, nose and skin.

LET YOUR FOOD BE YOUR MEDICINE, AND YOUR MEDICINE BE YOUR FOOD


These are the plants we grow and use. The list is far from complete, but it contains only plants we grow, and use, and can vouch for. Some may strike you as familiar, many of them you may call weeds. Some are just useful for existing, like the sisal swordballs we plant along the fences to keep large animals off the yard. They feed the bees, supply nesting stumps for birds and you can make rope too. If that is not a useful herb, then at least call it medicine for peace of mind. I sleep better knowing no-one will get over my fence without crying out in pain.

We will keep adding to this collection of herbs. The photos are all from our own plants grown in our own garden. Some things we do not have photos of yet, like potatos. Yes, there is a good picture of a potato plant, but i did not take photos of the ones i planted, so i have to wait for harvest to upload an honest photo. For now, I drew you one just to have something there. Yes, yes, i could open a bag and photograph an onion, but that would not be a GREENPETS onion. Whatever we have in the Herbal, we can give you, even if we have to propagate for you especially. We have managed to aclimatise a number of exotics to the dry coldness of our area, an alternative to pampered potted pansies. GREENPETS, not greehouse. Greenhouses are the criminal penitentiaries of the plant world, free the weed!

Below is a long list of icons, with names and quick ideas of how to use it. The details are in the article you will find by opening the herb's particular read-more. We are also building an identification application to make it easier for you to identify plants you have. Sometimes the difference between a useful medicine and a useful poison is a few hairs under a seed pod. We will not even attempt doing fungi yet, the dangers of missing information are just too high.

For now, the pictures will help with identification, the paperwork is in the...uh...post?  Now read on, fellow traveller on the road to pharmaceutical ignorance, soon you too will look blank when people start swopping pain tablets in the office. Now go drink some clean water, that headache will diminish soon. or have you been eating junk again?

 Uhm, uh, here’s the thing; what herbs work for what? The field of medicine is rather, uhm, factionist. Each faction believes itself to hold the ultimate truth, and some factions even go so far as to persecute anyone with a differing opinion. Much like those religions that seem to have developed in and around the Middle East, Jerusalem particularly. Fascism is part of life, so we shall not judge. The point is, whatever I tell you about the workings of any sort of medication, might be totally wrong, it will greatly differ from most major dogmas, and I can be prosecuted, for I am not one of the Anointed. Persecution, on the other hand, is not the badge of honour, or the ‘informal’ qualification that some people think it is. Some people are called out for their views, and because they have little or no backup, they shall always shout ‘Persecution, I am right and you fear me, now you try destroy my life’s work.’ That is bull, most of the time. It does happen, though, but not very often, the average peddler of miracle cures usually is a charlatan out to get your money. There are exceptions, not many. What's our miracle cure, then?

Dopeheads the world over are celebrating their victory over The Man; Cannabis is being decriminalised in more and more places, and in South Africa, the police have been told to leave ‘personal use’ growers be. The limits of this new freedom is sure to be tested in the next few growing seasons. From the GREENPETS viewpoint, the average grower has two serious considerations before starting that plantation:

  1. If it leaves your premises, you are dealing. If people pay to come visit you, you are dealing. If you extract any direct financial benefit from your plantation, you are likely to be treated by the law as a dealer. You do not want The Law to treat you as a dealer, trust us on this one.
  2. If you allow kids access to your cannabis at any time during the entire seed-plant-dope lifecycle, you are likely to have your ears nailed to your ass, and deservedly so. GREENPETS strictly discourages adventures in psychotropics before the age of twenty-one, we would raise the legal drinking age if only we could. For this discussion, we assume an age of 18 as the cut-off, but would really prefer 21.

On the other hand, you may join most armies at sixteen…  my grandma got married at thirteen, I believe. But seriously, ganja growers have a serious problem on their hands now...

 I know this guy from Malawi. His dad passed away recently, leaving Kelvin as the tribal chief. Kelvin has control over an entire municipal district, he’s a major landowner with cattle and goats and cultivated fields. He works as a gardener in Johannesburg. We spent many an hour working side by side in the sun, listening to each other’s’ life stories. What I always wanted to know from Kelvin was: So what on earth are you doing here? The answer was always the same: “We are hungry”. The answer did not satisfy me, but that was what I always got. One day, I changed my tactic; I asked the question African way:

Glyphosate has been proven statistically safe in multiple studies. For this argument, it matters not who paid for those studies, who hid unflattering data, who destroyed evidence of toxicity… nothing of that really matters, because it is the carrot we donkeys are watching, while the wagonload of troubles is busy catching up with us on the downhill. We might as well stop the glyphosate argument, and start looking at what is hidden behind this fake controversy. Glyphosate is an active ingredient in Roundup; it is actively distracting us from the false labelling practices. 

I am not going to research specific legislation for this, I am deducing from the public evidence the construct of this farce:

8 March 2018, and the radio announcer tells me to clean out all processed meat and chicken products from my fridge, and return it to my nearest supermarket for a full, no-proof-needed refund. My first reaction was to wonder how much this will cost me in fraudulent tax subsidy claims. I also spent a moment smiling sarcastically at the wide geographic distribution of the processing plants fingered as being infected with Listeriosis bacteria. Granted, I never heard of this bacterium before, but something seems odd, almost like industrial sabotage, until you see the really big names involved: Enterprise and Rainbow, grand old dames of South African processed meats. I have since been informed smaller guys are also implicated. This suddenly makes the story conform to Protocol, let me pontificate:

Listeriosis is a bacterium, the chances that it  suddenly erupts over a wide geographical area leads one to suspect one of two things are happening: A specialist bacterium is being spread by some vector that has wide but specific distribution in a short time span. This may or may not be deliberate; the first assumption is that all facilities used the same contaminated ingredient. Because tests conducted over a wide area show contamination on various sites, it could also be that this bacterium is actually quite common, and could be found anywhere if you look hard enough. Both these scenarios require an underlying disinformation campaign, requiring not only that I take part in refunding millions of polony loafs even though I preach against that rubbish every day, but it also requires that we punish the perpetrating producers severely.

I am all for making every CEO of every sausage factory eat his own drek, but I am not in favour of closing businesses down on fabricated evidence, the way our chicken farms are being destroyed by the myth of bird flu. Remember that the Paranoid Goy is not a conspiracy theorist, this is not some faceless ‘Them’ knifing us in the back. This whole Listeriosis thing fits in perfectly well with the globalist agenda, it is not a conspiracy, it is just good business. South Africa has a long and proud agricultural heritage. To a Zulu, a cow is his hedge fund, a Xhosa can make sorghum grow on the moon, the very name ‘Boer’ is derived from the pride in farming well. The ‘Thems’ are trying their best to revive the old tribal and territorial wars, very often using the ownership of farming land as a political football. One would think that, in a modern world where Capitalism won the Cold War, that property ownership has to reign supreme, and it does, but here it gets weird:

The current debate over land ownership has nothing to do with racism, racism is merely the easiest tool a scoundrel can pick up anywhere. The land taken from ‘white supremacists’ will not be given to the poor and downtrodden emerging black farmers, it will be given to the Mines. Right outside my door, I look across the road at the most beautiful stretch of grazing you could imagine. Easier to imagine is ploughing (or not) that beautiful piece of farm and plant food. Sometimes, you can see a beautiful herd of cattle, gorgeous indigenous Nguni cattle, grazing lazily. Lately, this causes the owner to come rushing with a load of help to get them off the mine’s land, before the security guards go Vietnam on their hides again. Millions of hectares of perfectly arable land in South Africa is left vacant, because the mines refuse above-ground access to land with one far-off entrance to a perfectly secure mine two miles underneath. It’s not like the sheep will chew yer bleeding gold! But here lies the clue to the recent Listeriosis ‘outbreak’: they are clearing the land!

You see, dear reader, the Global Village is a wonderful place, where everyone lives happy and secure. In the Global Village, there is place for only one factory, one farm, one beauty parlour, one school, one Church, one God. As we all know, the factory is in China. The chocolates and fashion means nothing if it is not from Paris or London, Brussels or Poopaloopischtaden in Europe, the mines are in Africa, Australia and South America. The Farm is in North America. All your food shall be grown in America, your devices are made in China, we Africans will become miners or dance half naked for the tourists. At least our children will not die of hunger without their own farms, oh no, the masters of our new Global Village has long ago decided they want less than one billion people on earth. The ‘richest man on earth’ is going around saving the poor with ‘free’ vaccines, but he wants no more than 300 million people on earth. 300 million is less than 5% current population, he wants to kill off 7 Billion, SEVEN BILLION of us so he can feel secure and happy in the Global Village. His farm is in America, and  our chickens all have The Flu, and our factories are dangerously infected.

In my innermost paranoid heart, the least I suspect about this ‘epidemic’? Most of our meat already comes from America, after our wonderful government signed TTP, so did these guys import the same ‘mechanically separated meat’ from America? Just a wild guess, because all other scenarios tell me the whole thing is a lie to destroy our farms and factories as outlined in the text above. As a holist practitioner of autotherapeutics or something, I must also wonder: I have seen the reaction some people show the first time they overdose on MSG, is this not maybe an allergic reaction to substances the Americans consider edible, but has been banned or limited around here? The Great Pooping seems a clue…

Update 13 March 2018

As speculated above, it seems the polony casings were infected. Marks for the ‘single source’ theory. Does this explain anything? Nothing! How do you infect a long roll of plastic so badly? An entire batch of plastic wrapper, even? Listeriosis in a plastics factory? And where is this factory? Tiger milling (a monopoly player) has seen its share price drop, although it has been doing so for a while. They are a virtual monopoly, with interlocked shareholding in our entire food chain, so I expected them to become the chief importers from Farm USA, is this the first shot in a trade war? Watch this weird space to find out who the players will turn out to be. So far, apparently, they have killed 180 civilians.
