I actually just ordered a bunch of seeds a couple of weeks ago and got me a little herb grow set from IKEA, so i hope i can manage to plant some of my own.
I want to grow liquorice too, but i don't have all the space in the world, but it should also be good for throat and such, in addition to tasting delicious. I have no idea about fenugreek seeds though, maybe those could work in my IKEA thingy?
I do occationally hunt for chaga in the birch forests, though i have been a bit lazy doing that after my bike was stolen. If you haven't heard of chaga i can tell you that it contains the highest concentration of anti oxidants in any natural thing on earth. It has been proven to be used by people more than 5000 years ago, most likely as a remedy and it's also been scientifically proven to have beneficial properties. I've heard of people with anemia been cured by drinking chaga tea.
It's actually mushroom, or rather a part of a mushroom. You see it on birch trees, mostly on older trees and it appears like a black coalish tumor on the tree. It's actually not the fruitbody we see, because it doesn't spread spores through it. You can sometimes hit it off with a hammer, but it doesn't always fall off that easy, so knife, saw, crowbar, axe and hammer is nice to bring along. You should remove all the black and then you're left with a yellowish spongy substanse similar to wine cork. You should chop it into pieces before it dries because then it becomes very hard and difficult to chop up. Put a couple of pieces in a pot, pour water on it and let it boil for as long as you like and drink it. Drink looks almost like coffee and a sweet taste like how freshly cut birch smells mixed with prunes.
