The Etiquette of Herb-Gathering

As a practicing Witch and small-scale herbalist, I often find that when I’m out and about I’m also absentmindedly on the lookout for any new, interesting or useful herb species that might help me in my practice. I even carry a small clean jam jar and a sharp penknife in my handbag at all times for if I spot a herb I just can’t resist and need to take a cutting of it for my collection back home. However, while I’m avidly seeking out roadside feverfew or happily snipping cuttings of a rare cultivar of lavender or sage, I’m always acutely aware of why I call the etiquette of herb-gathering.

These are a few simple rules by which I suggest all foraging Witches, alchemists and herbalists should abide that dictate the correct course of action for those who seek to collect herbs from places other than their own gardens. They are mostly fairly common-sense, but a few are ones that might be overlooked, but which can actually be of profound importance!

I will list the rules below, but bear in mind that it’s not like this is some onerous obligation that must be fulfilled, and nor is it some sort of “Witchcraft commandment” or infallible and unchanging list of sacred laws. These are a few things that I created for my own usage, and nobody else is under any obligation to use them. If you choose to do so, I’ll be thrilled; if you find a way to improve them, please do reblog this post with your corrections! 

The Etiquette of Herb-Gathering

  1. Remember that all plants are living things, and if you harvest them too severely, they will die. This seems obvious, but you’d be shocked how many people forget! This is especially important when what you’re harvesting is the plant’s leaves - always remember that leaves are how plants make their food, so leave enough of them to enable the plant to keep growing strongly.

  2. Never forget that you may not be the only one foraging. Make sure that, when you harvest a wild growth of a herb, there may be others in the area who would also like to harvest that plant. Take only a little from a lot of patches, rather than using only two or three patches, but taking almost all of what is available at each one. This will not only ensure that other foragers can use that patch too, but will mean that when the patch regrows, you’ll know where to go back to in order to find it again instead of needing to hunt down a new patch each time.

  3. When foraging on another’s land, ask their permission first! This seems so straightforward, but sadly people forget that plants growing in other people’s gardens (yes, even their front lawn) are that person’s private property! Taking cuttings or fruits from plants on that property without the owner’s permission is legally theft, and can be punished just like shoplifting or stealing a bike from a railing. It also means that the owner will know that their plant is looking smaller because it’s been harvested, rather than them thinking it’s died or been eaten by some wild herbivore.

  4. Always cut stems at a diagonal angle. Never snip a stem so that it forms a circular, blunted end, because this can allow rainwater to build up on the surface of the cut. This rainwater can trap fungal spores, and cause the plant to get a serious fungal infection that may damage or even kill that whole patch. Instead, cut the stems at a roughly 45° angle, so that water beads up and rolls off more easily. 

  5. When collecting flowers, remember that other people like to look at wildflowers. Never take ALL the flowers from any wild plant, both because it prevents that plant from reproducing as it naturally wants to do, and because it means others who walk past the plant don’t get to see it’s beautiful blooms! If you own the plant, that’s another matter - you may WANT to snip off all flowers to prevent it from bolting, like with parsley. However, with wildflowers, always leave at least half the flowers on the plant so that it can continue to reproduce as nature intended.

  6. Never pick a plant you can’t identify with total certainty. Yet another seemingly-obvious one that is nevertheless often ignored. This is often quoted for fungi, because some fungi can be quite poisonous, but if anything it’s even worse for plants. The medicinally fabulous plant known as yarrow, Achillea millefolia, is a very useful plant and a common component of herbal medicines. However, it looks almost identical to spotted water-hemlock, a species of plant so deadly that one bite can kill you in 20 minutes. Make completely certain that all plants you collect are positively identified, and that you flag all plants with commonly-confused poisonous cousins for further identification later if you’re not 100% sure.

  7. Never harvest flowers from plants around beehives. Bees are one of the most important families in the natural world, being responsible for the pollination of tens of thousands of species of flowering plants all over the world and on every forested continent. Whilst most species of bees are solitary, and don’t form the large hives we assume are common to all bees, those that DO form vast colonies need similarly vast numbers of flowers to support themselves. When you come across a beehive, especially a boxed hive that’s clearly domesticated by humans, try to avoid harvesting any flowers from within 500 metres (about a third of a mile) around the hive(s). The hive needs all the nectar and pollen it can get, and due to the rising threat of colony collapse disorder the life of every single hive is a precious thing that must be preserved at all costs. It might be inconvenient for you, but it’s worth it.

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

These are just a few of the major rules that I personally suggest all foragers and herb-gatherers take to heart. Remember that you’re not the only Witch who needs their supplies! Thank you for reading :)

DISINTERESTED =/= UNINTERESTED

I see this mistake in fanfic all the time

Disinterested:

Not influenced by considerations of personal advantage.

“They needed to choose a court that was disinterested from the case.”

Uninterested:

Not interested

“She was completely uninterested in math class and nearly fell asleep.”

YES I UNDERSTAND THAT THEY’RE NOW SAYING THAT YOU CAN USE BOTH TO SHOW SOMEONE ISN’T INTERESTED BUT PLEASE PEOPLE IT’S CONFUSING JUST USE UNINTERESTED IT’S A LETTER LESS

Reasons why I flinch when Jared is with G

(Spoiler alert: It’s not jealousy nor hate)

I never go looking for het blogs and Twitter accounts, but still their musings seem to reach me somehow. They quite commonly seem to be confused as to why us tinhats hate it when Jared and G are together, so I thought I might as well write down my comprehensive list of reasons why I personally feel distress in those situations. I will put this all under a cut, seeing as how I won’t be able to illustrate my post without some pictures of G.

Just a fair warning - these are my thoughts and feelings, so do not take them for a fact. It’s important that everyone comes to their own conclusions with the points that I present.

I’ve been reading some fics and...

I’ve noticed some common mistakes with the uses of -ah and -yah at the end of names, so here’s a quick tip! (I’m Korean so this is just some basic knowledge.)

When you use (name)-Ah or (name)-Yah, its similar to saying “Hey, (Name)”. It calls attention to the person you are addressing.

You don’t add it every time their name is mentioned like you would use (name)-san or (name)-kun in Japanese.

Ex: Jimin-ah, did you eat yet?

Wrong ex: Jimin-ah ate lots of food.

Another mistake that I see commonly is the confusion of when to use ah and yah.

When a character’s name ends in a vowel, you use Yah

Ex: Yoongi-yah, Hobi-yah

When a character’s name ends in a consonant, you use Ah 

Ex: Namjoon-ah, Seokjin-ah

Last thing is that using ah and yah is informal language. You wouldn’t use it on someone older than you unless your age is considerably close.

Since Jungkook is 5 years younger than Seokjin, he wouldn’t call him “Seokjin-ah” he would call him “Seokjin-hyung”

Hope that made sense! happy writings~~!

Request: GIVE ME SHY NON CONFIDENT READER AND THE EVER SO CONFIDENT & SELF LOVING JEROME HAVING FLUFFY MOMENTS

Notes: I AM SO SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG FORGIVE ME PLEASE

“Hello doll.”

“Uh, goo- I mean hi… Jerome.”

Jerome let out a chuckle as the pink cheeks of the girl stood to attention. The girl, Y/N, was looking towards her shoes as they turned in shying away from the cocky ginger that stood in front of her.

“You are way to shy for a girl as pretty as you.” he commented as he forcibly looped arms with Y/N and started dragging her along the street littered with the rich, homeless and the ones in-between. She remained tense as her legs dragged along and her enlarging eyes started at Jerome’s determined and chipper smile.

“I wouldn’t say I’m pretty Jerome.”

“Well, if you won’t say it than I will.”

“…Uh, Jerome, were are we going?” Y/N asked nervously as she started to linger behind him his fast strides making it hard to keep up. Jerome let out a small chuckle at the girl that had taken multiple one sided conversations to get a ‘hi’ out of. He was proud thinking about how far he had come, and he was going to earn her trust.

“A place you’ll love, guarantee.”

“You sure?”

“Always.”

Y/N kept a emotionless face disregarding the cockiness in his voice as she got pulled down another street where he came to a almost comical halt.

Jerome flung a stiff hand towards a building with a devious, confident smile. The gesture caused Y/N to jump back and give a nervous smile before she noticed it was a cafe she commonly visited. Confused and worried she looked towards Jerome, “Jerome it isn’t open these hours on Sunday… So I’m just gonna go…” Y/N trailed off starting to shyly walk away from Jerome before Jerome slammed two hands beside her head stopping her movements, her body landing on the locked door of the cafe.

“You worry to much cutie,” he said one hand slithering down, unknowingly to Y/N revealing a key, “You act like I can’t manage to pull of a few strings.”

Y/N suddenly fell into the cafe, the door unlocked by Jerome who stood their with an amused smile as he stepped in and closed the door watching Y/N push herself up from the floor, “I managed to rent the place out for an hour, so you can do anything you want here with me, aren’t I amazing?”

Y/N ignored the last question with a present smile on her face as she looked around, pillows and blankets around the room with lights hanging from the ceiling, she couldn’t believe Jerome had done this (though he didn’t actually). She turned to Jerome with a grateful but reserved smile, “Thank you so much, this is so sweet I don’t know who you managed this!”

Jerome smiled before grabbing a tray of cupcakes, “Wanna cupcake?”

Y/N laughed and nodded waiting for the tray to come within reach only for it to be pulled further back, “I wanna kiss first doll.”

Y/N nearly choked on air and her face blew up red, she took a step back and shook her head, “What? No! I’m not gonna kiss you.”

Jerome frowned, “Why not?”

“Because, because… I don’t know.”

“Nervous?”

“…Yeah?”

Jerome chuckled and leaned forwards leaving their faces very close to each other his eyes glinting with a usual sparkle it had, “Don’t worry sweet cheeks, I’ll handle it.”

Jerome quickly dove in for a kiss, Y/N’s eyes widened and didn’t move frozen in shock, when Jerome pulled back his smile a lot more dapper than usual, he pushed a cupcake towards Y/N’s face, one she didn’t grab still in pure shock.

“I…Uh, I -uhhh, umm, wha?”

Jerome chuckled looking at the Y/N’s bashful form, “Was I that good?”

“…You realise I know nothing about you Jerome?”

“Is that a problem cutie?”

“Should it be?”

“No, of course not.”

Why are social justice activists so obsessed with cultural appropriation?

The all-time favorite social justice activism is simply pointing at something and saying “that’s bad” then harassing and shaming anyone who likes the ‘bad’ thing, as it’s an easy way to claim activism without actually doing anything.

The original point of cultural appropriation is that when you take something that is of important cultural or religious relevance then dilute it into a fashion accessory, costume, or comedic value, it’s a great insult to the culture. The classic example is the war bonnets of plains native americans, which were supposed to be a sign of high honor among warriors, so non-natives wearing it as a fashion accessory is extremely demeaning and insulting to their culture.

However, social justice activists have bastardized it, like with many terms, to simply point at someone enjoying something foreign and say “that’s bad”. Also typically they are very quick to resort to talking over and silencing the culture and minorities they claim to be defending when they try to point out that their claims are inaccurate or even completely wrong. That’s a big red flag with people who claim to care about cultural appropriation right there, the fact that they’re so quick to try and shut up actual minorities who correct them.

Grammatical PSA

There are some mistakes I’ve been seeing pretty consistently in the (otherwise very good!) fanfiction I’ve been reading lately. And yes, I know, as a good descriptive linguist I shouldn’t make prescriptivist posts like this… but I’m also the daughter of a copy-editor who drilled standard usage very thoroughly into my head, so I can’t help wincing when I see certain things. Take or leave this information as you see fit.

Three commonly confused words: peak, peek, pique

I often see people using one of these homophones when they pretty clearly meant another. With some help from Merriam-Webster, here’s what each spelling means.

1. peak, noun: the top of a hill or mountain ending in a point; the highest level or greatest degree (as in “a singer at the peak of her popularity”).
peak, intransitive verb: to reach a maximum (as of capacity, value, or activity) —often used with out

2. peek, intransitive verb: to look briefly or furtively; to peer through a crack or hole or from a place of concealment.
peek, noun: a furtive or brief look.

3. pique, noun: a transient feeling of wounded vanity, most often used in the phrase “a fit of pique”
pique, transitive verb: to arouse anger and resentment in, irritate; OR to excite or arouse especially by a provocation, challenge, or rebuff (as in “to pique someone’s curiosity”)

to lie, to lay, and their forms

This one is probably even worse for me to hammer on, since I’m pretty sure this is a change in progress, with (previously) transitive to lay becoming the sole form in both transitive and intransitive uses. Nonetheless, as the change progresses, I’ve been seeing some confusion about past tense and past participle forms; and I’m pretty sure all standard usage guides still think there’s a distinction, so here are the paradigms.

lie, intransitive verb: to be or to stay at rest in a horizontal position; to assume a horizontal position —often used with down; to have sexual intercourse —used with with; (of an inanimate object) to be or remain in a flat or horizontal position upon a broad support
simple past tense: lay, as in “She lay down with an exhausted sigh”; “I lay awake half the night worrying”
past participle: lain, as in “I had just lain down to go to sleep when my cat started meowing that she was hungry”; “The gun had lain on the mantel for the whole play but wasn’t used until the last scene”

lay, transitive verb (i.e., must take a direct object): to put or set down (an object); to place for rest or sleep (“He lays the baby down for a nap every day at 2pm”; “We laid our grandmother to rest on Sunday”); to dispose or spread over on a surface (“lay plaster”); to set in order or position (“lay the table”); to impose as a duty, burden, punishment, or reproach (“to lay the blame on someone”); to bring to a specified condition (as in “lay waste the land”)
simple past tense: laid, as in “I laid the books on the table”; “She laid her head on the pillow”
past participle: laid, as in “I had just come in and laid my groceries down when the phone rang”; “He had laid the knife on the stove, which I thought was a really stupid place to put it”

anonymous asked:

Hello! Would you two mind doing a post on the differences between you / your types? I'm not quite sure whether I am myself an INTJ or an ENTP, so I'd be very interested to see that!

Hey !
Yes, ENTPs and INTJs are commonly confused with each other, so we totally understand.
Here’s the basics -

INTJ:
Dominant: Introverted Intuition
Auxilliary: Extraverted Thinking
Tertiary: Introverted Feeling
Inferior: Extraverted Sensing

ENTP
Dominant: Extraverted Intuition
Auxiliary: Introverted Thinking
Tertiary: Extraverted Feeling
Inferior: Introverted Sensing

So the characters are basically just flipped.
Here’s what we have learned till now about our personality types -
They both can give off predatory vibes. Both are generally pretty darn logical, and inclined to think they are right (you must provide hard evidence that they are wrong)
Both types are considered emotionally unavailable or distant, which, we think is subjective and not exactly true for all INTJs/ENTPs.
ENTPs may make a lot of plans, and not follow through with them- not because they are inconsistent, but moves on to other things too quickly (we have a multitude of collaborative ideas, but almost nothing gets done actually). The INTJs are more “I’m doing it. I have everything meticulously planned” When they say they will do something, they’ll do it.
Of course, ENTPs are more intuitive and take decisions without much thought while that is not so with INTJs.
ENTP’s don’t have the attention span for long, complex schemes… sure they can MAKE ridiculously complex, masterminded schemes… but they wouldn’t be able to stay interested long enough to actually DO anything with them.

The INTJs are more likely to actually implement the plan because well, no one can procrastinate like the xNTPs, and definitely not the xNTJs.
Besides, ENTPs have a strong Ne while INTJs have a strong Ni. Which means that ENTPs create new ideas while INTJs connect existing ideas. Also, INTJs have single focus while that’s soooo not true for ENTPs.
Ne focuses on multiple concepts that exist within the same boundary and Ni focuses one a single concept that exists across multiple boundaries.
So yeah, those are the basic differences and similarities we have evidently noticed in our day to day lives.
Hope this helped you !

And here’s a bonus (original) conversation -

Us - Let’s make a long post when we hit 500 followers.
*Hits past 600 followers*

PS - Omg guys thank you so much for all the support we’re getting ! 600 followers is so overwhelming tbh. Keep looking forward to that long post we’re totally gonna do it.. eventually. - Entp mod
