Using the incredible cattail

First off, I apologize for not getting the contest online last night. Some of you might have learned from the facebook page that I am basically working non-stop at my job right now. It happens. I’ll do what I can to get those up this week, but if worst comes to worst I’ll post the contest this weekend and extend the deadline.

Today’s submission comes to me again from Backwood’s Home magazine via John Daleske who has already sent in so many great articles to Save Our Skills and I would just like to thank him again for all of his contributions.

The Cattail is a wondrous plant. Keven details many of the uses in a great article. He writes:

“I can think of no other North American plant that is more useful than the cattail. This wonderful plant is a virtual gold mine of survival utility. It is a four-season food, medicinal, and utility plant. What other plant can boast eight food products, three medicinals, and at least 12 other functional uses?”
