Ingestion of a single seed, well chewed, can be fatal to both adults and children. 2 White Snakeroot White snakeroot is a poisonous perennial herb, native to eastern and central North America. It contains the toxin tremetol which is responsible for many deaths in the past. Abraham Lincoln's mother, Nancy Hanks was died after drinking the milk of a cow who had grazed on the plant. The poisoning is also called milk sickness, as humans often ingested the toxin by drinking the milk of cows that had eaten snakeroot. 3 Daffodils Daffodils are common ornamental plants with a bright, cheery and fragrant flowers that bloom in the spring.

I'm back at the Ant Village for another season, working to build my own Permaculture based homestead, as well as realize my vision for the Permaculture Bike Park. Follow along as I attempt to create my dream out of the tree, rocks, sand, and soil of my one acre plot, at Wheaton Labs in Western Montana. During our Oregon road trip, we stopped by One Green World Nursery in Portland to check out their supply of useful Permaculture plants. We got such an informative tour from Sam, one of the employees, that I decided to make a whole video out of it. One Green World almost exclusively stocks the kind of multifunctional and edible plants that permaculture designers and gardeners are interested in, such as nitrogen fixing berries, and rare edibles from around the world. Sam was very knowledgeable about the plants and happy to share. I am currently looking for volunteers to help with the Permaculture Bike Park project, and stay or live in the Ant Village.
