Hemp

It was believed that working in kemp fields would bring on sterility, and women were forbidden from doing so in fear that they would become barren (although it was still used in marriage divination). Devon folk, UK, traditionally believed that on Valentine's Day a young girl should walk from the church porch to the home half-an-hour after midnight if she wanted to see the wraith of her future husband following behind her. As she went the girl should scatter hemp seed and look to see the man raking the seed into ground behind her.
