The adventures of Captain Redbeard.

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the adventures of Captain Redbeard.

 

gallery_20098_15377_22952.jpg

 

What are they about?

 

African Strains from Afropips.

Swazi Red, aka "Die Rooibaart".

 

gallery_1115_3541_89025.jpg

 

Before the Afropips seeds get too old, they need to be refreshed.

The seedbank no longer exists, I understand.

 

gallery_35977_15343_754738.jpg

 

The donor of the seeds is allergic to pollen, so asked me to take care of that.

Above is a picture of Malawi Gold surrounding an AK47 plant.

And here is a closer look:

 

gallery_35977_15343_1052499.jpg

 

So I put the first five Swazi Red in the well known sponge pots yesterday,

after soaking them for a few hours in a mild solution of H2O2 and drop of Pyth-amin.

To spread the risk I kept the other five in my fridge,

and will make a different plan if the first five fail.

 

Of the Malawi Gold i put 2x10 in fresh soil.

The seeds of the #1 pack are huge!

 

The pips were bought in 2009 or 2010, and some freebees came with it.

It was called Mystery Sativa" and also had red pistils.

That's why there's a question mark at one of the packs.

 

So if the first Swazi adventure leads to this:

...I still got the redbearded cross with the Gold to dig in to.

 

I hope some South African forum members can have a look later on, in case I need advise, or if I see much variety in the pheno's

Europe is in a crisis.

I'm glad I got some Fool's Gold!

I'll ask the good donor about that important detail and the photoperiode that was used in the tent, Mr PachukoCadaver.

What a bizar nickname, there is a Christian holyday when all German people have the day off and call it "Happy Kadaver".

I think it's somewhere in november, Saxo or Torsti might know.

But I hope I don't find many cadavers in the original pack of Afropips at the start.

 

I could not think of a better way then to stick them into sponge-pots.

I'll see if there is an African way if the first five fail.

 

I love them too, Maverick, and I think that's why the Captain went to Africa in the first place.

He might soon be starring in new adventures with more narrow leafs involved :

I think he was one of the first strainhunters, and might have buried some treasures in remote places.

 

13_142849_0_Roodbaard32HetpadvandeInca.jpg

 

The seeds come from seedsman but are sold out for a long time already.

 

The specs:

 

Genetics: Swazi Redbeard

Variety: Pure sativa

Type: Pure-bred, True-Breeding

Harvest Date: November

Flowering Period: 12 weeks

THC Content: 8-11%

Characteristics: Red hairs Renowned for its spectacular red hairs, Swazi is a high yielding and resinous pure sativa, which gives a strong natural high. These seeds come directly from South African breeders living in Swaziland.

 

This Strain has a strong odour, which has been compared to a "fine cigar" and an "earthy" smoke with a high that is energetic and clear. Buds on this plant can reach the size of an adult's forearm and are typically compact and very sticky.

 

I am not going to mention the size of the Captain's body parts here.

The Captain can manage everything, thesamyboy, that's how he got his nickname.

He did some special training for it at a Dutch institute.

So while we wait for the seeds to come up, let's hear what the new trainer has to say about this Roodbaard method:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2HvUhELDWw

 

South African people might understand some of the bullcrap, it's called neuro linguistic reprogramming.

The Captain would get afraid his parrot might repeat that stuff, and would have chopped the guy's head off.

Would you buy a second hand car off him?

 

Hi Chief Runningbud

Good to hear there is a demand for them, and I'm willing to share if I succeed in the mission.

 

The author and cartoonist of the Roodbaard comic strip have also both passed away,

and I try to honour them too in this topic.

 

Victor Hubinon was supposed to have an unhealthy lifestyle,

used to drink a lot, and died from a heart attack while at the drawing board at age 54.

The cooperation with Jean-Michel Charlier at the adventures of the Captain lasted about twenty years.

That's about the time I'll need to grow out these seeds.

 

The Captain adopted a son and named him Erik Lerouge in the story.

He also sailed the seven seas on his ship called "Mocking Bird".

 

And I just found out Erik is still out there somewhere...

 

To be continued...

Welcome aboard the Black Falcon, Blowsterke.

Start loading the cannons, it's all hands on deck!

We might see some British soon to shoot at.

You hired as a gunner.

 

Damn, the compass just broke...

What a fun thread! FOTH my name is a reference to the Captain Beefheart song. Its a song about 60s low-rider culture. Pachuko is a name for Latin American street gang members. Apparently the song is a love song to a car. I love the music of this remarkable man.

 

So there you go, two captains smokin it up!

A smoke, okay, but not two captains on one ship, Pachuko

The favorite car of the Captain is this one, but it's heavily guarded by a gang of Vikings.

 

Blue2.jpg

 

The character of Captain Redbeard is based on stories about several real people.

An early pirate from the north coast of Holland was supplying Sweden with spices and other imported goods.

At the end of the 14th century he helped the Swedes to fight off the Danes and also helped the Frysians ( his own people) against the Dutch.

He got his goods by robbig ships from England and the Hanze, who chopped off his head in 1401 in Hamburg.

Here he is just before it happened.

 

Hafencity_Stortebeker.jpg

 

He shared the loot with the whole gang, and went for any ship that was carrying alcoholic beaverages first!

He did not need any other motivational training methodes to get a good crew on board.

Because of this attitude he became a folk hero in the former DDR.

Do you know more about him, Saxo, the redbeard you mention was a "Landrot" who was busy fighting Italians most of the time.

You can still feel what it's like to be a pirate en re-enact his favorte pastime on board this ship with his name.

 

The first ship of the Captain was a small but fast one. Just like one of Robert Surcouf from France, another inspiration for the Redbeard story.

He captured three British ships at Réunion near Madagaskar. He lived later then Redbeard's days when French didn't fight much.

In 1716 British Captain Blackbeard was robbing in the Carrebian and at the east coast of north amerika, about 20 ships in 18 months time.

He used to create a smoke screen around him during fights.

 

Welcome on board Indican, I think your country didn't exist while Redbeard was around.

Congatulations with your new rank, but the Captain has no respect for that occupation at all.

 

Trypod has been watching the horizon and shouts he has seen land:

 

gallery_1115_3541_288.jpg

 

And the Captains smells something bad, and goes to search for stowaways and rats.

They go overboard!

 

Don't know how long it's going to take, Smudger and if we get in storm with the Black Falcon or not,

Or if we get arounded and loose our head like it happened to Blackbeard.

But I think I got the wind in the sail's and left the harbour in time.

Tripod has a few trick tools hidden in his wooden leg.

 

One of the Malawi's seems to come up,

and he started a germ test with five of the cross seeds this morning.

 

Even Captain Kirk held a precise log, that's why we still enjoy his adventures today.

There still seems to be a treasure of Störtebeker hidden at the Isle of Rügen, Saxo.

 

Roodbaard's good cause was the eduction and future of his adopted son Erik.

 

No trace of the five adoptive Afropips yet,

 

But some of the Malawi's are coming up.

Here is one from the "regular" Malawi-pack.

 

gallery_1115_3541_91633.jpg

 

I put the tray under a lamp, so I hope it will go green soon.

More are showing their heads.

At the north of the Netherlands, on the 20th of januari 1782 Lucas Pieters Roodbaard was born,

son of gardner Pieter Harms Roodbaard and Hillegien Lucas Enting.

 

He was a famous garden architect, and also designed grave yards, also his own...

The city of Leeuwarden honours him with this monument:

 

Roodbaard02.jpg

 

In 1811 Napoleon ordered everybody to have a last name.

So I don't know if the family adopted the name then, or were carying it before that date.

If so, they were paying taxes.

 

Here is the results of the seed test of the cross seeds between cotton wool pads:

 

gallery_1115_3541_65300.jpg

 

I opened two spongepots and checked the seeds of the original pack..

Still brown. And closed.

I carefully scratched one with a small screwdriver till I saw something white.

I pushed on another one with my thumbnail untill it cracked.

Then put them back in the sponges with a drop of water.

 

Still waiting for the big nuts of the Malawi#1 too.

And just transplanted five of the regulars in soil.

 

Bye.
