We put up some bird netting over the single Montmorency cherry tree I have. As last year, the birds went into Covid hysteria, and devoured almost every berry from the tree. We got like 2-3 cups last year. This year we got a late spring snow squall, right as the blossoms were popping out. I thought well there goes this year too.

They are producing well, not great, but Friday we picked & PITTED 12 cups turned them into cherry jam. Then Saturday another 20 cups, making freezer bags for cherry pies, and other items. 

We get a few asparagus stalks every day. Next year that raised patch should be a really good producer, as this is just the second year of the beds, so we are root building again this year.

Got to up pot all 14 herb pots from 1 gallon pots to 10 gallon pots. But while in the original pots I'll sink in the 10 g's, and maybe I can keep them alive through winter. If not that packet of seeds was $15.00 for the 14 varieties. All the Etsy seeds I got were crazy good viable seed.

Scraping basement walls of 50 years of many layers  of Dri-Lock shit, with a flat face shovel sucks real bad!! Then wall grinding, washing down with X-14, acrylic primer, and then a coat of latex!! Fuck what was I thinking!

Hey! I finally saw that you posted. It's looking like you've really upped your game. That's some beautiful work! I'll try and in more but this time of year is all outside. Not much butt time lately. I'm just working hard on the property but no real work, which sucks for obvious reasons. Other than that I'm doing good, well except for the insanity I accumulated from the last year, so there's that... lol. I'll PM you my email address so you can hit me up anytime. I'd love to be able to get in touch with you when I need some medical products. I think our farmer's market is gonna open back up this year but not til middle of July. I was thinking how you could sell out on your products. They would do good here I think. That soap in really attractive.

 

Hopefully I can get myself over here more. peace

It's day 3 for the 2021 Scooter Cannonball, leaving  Bar Harbor Maine to Eureka California in a 10 day run of scooters 125 cc's up to 300 cc's. Shine On You Crazy Diamonds.

In 2 years will be last shot at giving it a go, if I still have my health and desire to do so. I love following these crazy folks!

The Dream Weaver I just pulled is like that, makes you smile just smelling her :) First year I have ever grown outdoors! I am excited and I am sure will learn a lot, well hope not too much ha!

Smoking actually makes me nauseous, I am one of the out balls out here lol. I eat it for my medicine, a good combo of indica and some CBD is what works for me, takes both to hit all the symptoms of MS. When I did try smoking, Granddaddy Purps worked pretty well for a lot of the symptoms. I have not a lot of advice for strains, I mainly rely on cannabis oil, which is a variety of whatever I had on hand to make it with generally about 6 strains or more of indica, and then CBD. I sometimes use Sativa with CBD during the day, brain fog and fatigue are two big issues and that helps. CBD also works well for migraines, use CBD infused honey in peppermint tea for those. I think we need to start looking at the terpene profiles instead of strains, tune into what terpenes help our symptoms best. There was a strain, Barbasol, was very piney, it helped with tremors almost immediately. Really believe terpene profiles is the way to go.

Something I have noticed when using medibles, if made with oil more of a heavy feeling, almost downer type, honey kicks in quick, butter gives you a happy high. Combining honey and butter in a medible is a really nice happy type high, can be almost giddy like. Oil can be more intense pain reliever, but also more heavy feeling. For those who have depressive disorders might be best to use butter and honey type.

How are you doing with the cancer? Any hopeful numbers?

Such awesome advice!

 

Again!

Our Montmorency cherry tree, (tart cherry self pollinator) took a hard frost right as the flowers were starting to bloom earlier this year. Last year a flock of birds settled on it, and devoured it over night. We got like 2-3 cups from it, nothing really. When I saw the cold fried blossoms, I thought. game over for this year.

I was wrong, in this past week, we picked and pitted, like 40 lb.'s so far, and I still have maybe one full quarter of the tree to pick.

And does anyone know the herb, Summer Savory? I got the seeds in a collection from and Etsy seller, for like $15.00 a variety pack 14-15 varieties, and summer Savory was one of them. As I was making dinner for us, I went out to the herb pots, and just giving them a rub, trying to sense what it can offer, and loved the smell!!

We fell instantly in love with it's flavor!! It will getting a 10 gallon pot for sure!! I just nerve heard of it before, cool mind blow!

Hey gardenartus,  the cherries, will be made into jelly/jam, some for pies, cherry bead pudding, grandkids fav. Some for sauces, I blended up a cherry teriyaki sauce a few years ago, that was very nice, on meat and fish dishes. We just pit them and freeze them in 8 cups per container. Today should be the last time, I got to get up into top branches, they are so juicy this year, big, plump. Most is given away to family, or taken to get togethers, and it's good bribes at times.

The Summery Savory herb, is astounding to our taste palette. My wife wanted me to add it to the pan of bergers, onions I was cooking last evening. Wow the taste profile exploded and was fantastic!! I do not know how I ever did not know of this herb before now!!  It went into a 10 g  pot yesterday, and will be over wintered indoors. A must have for us now.

The asparagus bed is giving us a steady, but a small amount of stalk, this second year of the bed. Many stalks get cut and consumed at the bed, as I had no idea how tender the stalks are and really no need to cook it.

Cabbage heads are rounding up real nice also, maybe a week or so and they will be done. Carrots/spring onions, get the yank this weekend, and maybe the potato plants too.

Gardenartus, your edible work you posted is stunning kid!! I'm such a klutz when baking anything, I do keep trying, but it is nothing compared to your talents!! Big props to ya!

Apparently most of the world has known of it and using it for a 1000 years or more. One recipe I'm starting today, SS leaf/vinegar in a jar. Lasts a long time, on the shelf,  the strong leaf scents fuses to the vinegar, so lots of sauces/dressings can be made with it. Also found a stuffing recipe to try out.

Looking now for winter savory seeds also. Life is full of simple small pleasures, if we choose to open ourselves to it.  A few years ago, I'd have tossed those seeds to the curb, since I did not know of it.

I put the other plants out a week earlier than this one, decided I had two would go ahead and stick another Do Si Dos Zkittlez outdoors. This thing has grown two-foot and has caught up to the other plants in height in a couple of weeks.  If you see white specs, it is leftover DE.

I Soooo wish I could place a lady or 2 outside, before I get composted back into the Earth. Being less than 2 miles from the local cop shop, I'm blessed to not have have them take any notice of me in my 20+ years of keeping meds for my wife, and head stash for me going on.

We got another 48 cups of Mortties, picked/pitted/bagged and in the freezer yesterday. 8 cups is @ 3.25 lbs. to 3.50 lbs. had 40 cups frozen before hand.

Later on, got to have a nice dinner at my daughters house, got to see some of  the grand kids, and was hoping to see my great grand son also, however his parents are still in the covid hysteria mode. To each, their own.

We are very lucky here since rec went through, all who are 21 and older can grow. When only medical-legal, they were still busting people left and right, I never felt safe to put any outdoors. Now everyone is growing outdoors. Exciting to do this outdoors, my first time. :) I should have plenty of material and not run out of oil now.

It's definitely odd.

Michigan may become a popular place, as expected climate change will be a bit less obnoxious here as it will be in other parts of the country.
