It's getting to be the gardening time of the year, and in the spirit of JERA, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions of what type of herbs, plants, and vegetables to grow that would be associated with the Teutonic/Scandinavian/Viking/Rune themes.

In honor of the norse, you should raid a series of costal towns for fresh vegetables. ;)

But seriously, let's figure something out... it's almost garden time here in Vancouver, and I'd love to participate!

This is what I have so far, but I would love to have as many suggestions as possible so please keep 'em coming! (Especially fruits and vegetables)

Fehu- Nettle, Yarrow, Elder Tree

Uruz- Sphagnum Moss, Pennyroyal, Birch Tree

Thurisaz- Houseleek, Oak tree and Rowan

Ansuz- Fly Agaric, Royal Fern, Ash Tree

Raidho- Mugwort, Oak Tree and Hazel

Kenaz- Cowslip, Blackberry, Valerian, Pine Tree

Gebo- Heartsease, Periwinkle, Ash Tree and Elm

Wunjo- Flax, Chamomile, Ash Tree

Hagalaz- Lily of the Valley, Yew Tree and Ash

Naudhiz- Bistort, Nettle, Beech Tree

Isa- Henbane, Agrimony, Alder Tree

Jera- Rosemary, Apple, Oak Tree

Eihwaz- Mandrake, Yew Tree

Perthro- Aconite(Monkshood), Beech Tree

Elhaz/Algiz- Angelica, Rue, Yew Tree

Sowilo- Mistletoe, Sunnaswort, Juniper Tree

Tiwaz- Sage, Garlic, Aconite(Monkshood), Oak Tree

Berkano- Lady's Mantle, Birch Tree and Elder

Ehwaz- Ragwort, Yellow Loosestrife, Oak Tree and Ash

Mannaz- Rosemary, Madder, Holly Tree

Laguz- Leek, Garlic, Willow Tree

Ingwaz- Self-Heal, Sowthistle, Apple Tree

Dagaz- Clary Sage, Tansy, Spruce Tree

Othala- Gold-Thread, Oak Tree and Hawthorn

Also, there seems to be some discrepancies out there about how to translate the 9 sacred herbs of Odin.

Here are the options that I have found:

Mugwort, Plaintain, Stone Root(Stinkweed or Pennycress), Wormwood, Chamomile, Wergulu(Chicory?), Apple, Chervil, Fennel

Mugwort, Plantain, Stune(Corn Salad), Nettle, (Betony?), Chamomile, Wergulu(Crabapple), Apple, Chervil(Thyme), Fennel

Mugwort, Plantain, Watercress, Betony, Chamomile, Nettle, Crab Apple, Chervil, Fennel
