@webeblzr cherry juice is said  to have an important medical benefit but can’t recall what it is smdh 

I didn’t known you could eat the top greens of beets but now I do, thx ! 
I feel you on the pita wall situation ur when I think of it. I rather have the pita just knowing I have space to make shit happen  frrr ! 
 

so, back to the beets. How do you propagate them. And can they be grown out n totes well enough. My outside garden ideas/plans are not that close to happening yet. I just know I need 2 yards for. 10’ x 10’ raised bed.
 

I have plenty more space but I’m only 1 person to eat the food and I don’t want to take up too much yard space away from the dog/dogs that can enjoy it. 

Cherry juice, great for Gout :)

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!

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/scooter-cannonball-registration-67973471483

First, I just found out The Scootercannonball this year, was SUPPOSED to be held a couple of weeks ago. While reading on ADV, I learned it will running in JULY!! So all you scooter dudes and dudetts, can still register, $125.00 to ride 3500-4000 miles in 10 days, from Bar Harbor Ma to Eureka Ca. Glad I reported my big lie.

Montmorency Cherries have a bit more antioxidants than sweet's do. I found their power for my aching hands, arms, shoulders, mostly from steel fabrication, building and installing web and sheet fed printing equipment, for many years. I started getting pains in my hands, arms, shoulders mostly. Not debilitating , but a constant source of nagging irritation, if you will. That started around 1997ish. When I found Kings Orchard products, I bought a case of concentrate, and put 3 in the freezer, an one I made up a batch. The reading I was doing called for a shot a few times a day. I cannot say, I fell in love with tart cherry juice, myself. My wife really likes it. But I drank the stuff a few times a day.

I also CANNOT say, oh on this day, all my aches and pain went away! That never happened, but about on the 3rd or 4th quart of concentrate, so that was a good many days, I began to notice some of my more harsh hand and wrist pains SEEMED less painful. Ok I want it to work so it does, but that does not mean it is, just I'm convinced of it.

So, I get through that case and order another one, Some where from opening, and finishing this case, we began to notice, in each other, small things, like walking longer in our evening walks. Less comments about oh hell this or that hurts this morning, stuff like that. We both dropped a few pounds not from cherry juice, but due to more movement due to hurting as much. It was my fingers that got limbered up, not hurting as I work, not stabbing into your thought and concentration. Getting up, and not feeling a quick stab of pain in my left knee, hell that one never came back, after I got lax and did not drink my daily shot. We started to work the juice into things salad dressing, cookies batter, and a nice marinade, if you like tart cherry.

Then I got the tree idea, and found one in a size I could afford. It took maybe 3 years to get some decent cherries, at about 5 years I gave it a pruning, to open up the center of the tree. This year as winter sets in, I'm giving it a hard center pruning. I want the branches lower to the ground, but still easy to mow under it. It gets a dose of ReCharge in the early spring, and that is about it.

I cut our 5 heads of cabbage, yesterday, got nice bag of chunky salt, some caraway seed, and packing them into Mason Jars for nice fall time sauerkraut. Once you consume homemade sauerkraut, you never go back to over cooked store bought.

Hey SPW, I'll shoot you a PM about the beets, as I got a babble on here.

I was kind of hoping this was for those razor scooters. That would be some fast scootin'.

Oh damn, I'd bet the leg muscles would be screaming in few hundred miles!! The Cannonball Rides go way back, well before the super slabs, made travel easy across America.

A guy that got to traveling around on a wee Honda 125 scooter, was asked about his routes for this or that ride he did. For some years it was mostly vintage machines, small bore engines. Now I think the limit before a handicap is placed on you, is just shy of 300 cc's. 

If I was not so deep into this addition, I'd tear out today, and get set up, and ride in that once before composting starts.

Tart Cherry info: 

Tart cherries, also known as sour cherries, contain compounds, including a class of polyphenols known as anthocyanins, that help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.1,2

 

Research has shown that tart cherries can relieve arthritis pain, boost cognition, improve cardiovascular health, benefit endurance athletes, and target the underlying factors of gout.1,3

Tart cherries have been widely used to boost recovery and performance for athletes.

A 2020 meta-analysis of trials on endurance athletes confirmed that tart cherry concentrate intake significantly improves endurance exercise performance.4

In recent randomized controlled trials, those drinking tart cherry juice had improvements in a variety of areas:

  • Healthy older adults who drank two cups (16 oz) of tart cherry juice daily for 12 weeks had improved scores on tests of cognitive abilities, including reaction time, a learning task, and spatial working memory compared to baseline.5
  • In subjects 50 and older suffering from insomnia, drinking one cup (8 oz) of tart cherry juice twice daily for two weeks led to increased sleep time and sleep efficiency. Researchers noted that tart cherry juice prevented the degradation of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that may help treat sleep disorders.6
  • In overweight or obese individuals, one cup (8 oz)/day of tart cherry juice reduced serum uric acid concentration by 19.2% and C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation) by 19.4%.7 Elevated blood uric acid is the underlying cause of gout, which is a painful form of arthritis.8

Tart cherries and their juice are naturally high in sugar. Many people prefer to avoid this sugar load and take tart cherry extract instead.

In one study, taking tart cherry extract was 15.4% more effective at reducing the odds of a gout attack than eating cherries.9

A wealth of data shows that tart cherry extract can provide a wide range of health benefits.

A potential new use for tart cherry extract has been uncovered.

When components of tart cherry were tested on oral epithelial cells (cells that line the surfaces of the mouth), they improved the protective barrier function. Tart cherry also reduced the ability of oral pathogens to clump together in sticky white plaque that forms on teeth and gums.10

In a different study, tart cherry extract reduced growth and activity of the bacteria that are the main cause of gingivitis (inflammation of the gums).11,12 These studies suggest that tart cherry extract fights oral pathogens and may help prevent and treat oral plaque.

Hey DukeA#1, your most welcome! I honestly, thought it was a bunch of happy hippy shit, that was sort of an old wives tale. I was learning to live with those aches and pains, and was taking OTC pain relief stuff, but the side effects of that stuff just made other issues pop up, that ultimately sent me to relook some of the hippy shit about natural living, green sprout shakes and what not.

I wanted to fight it, I wanted to keep opening prepared, precooked, canned, frozen dinners, snacks. Once I realized I needed blood work, I needed opinions outside the AMA realm. I found where that article came from. 

Yeah, $21.00 for concentrate, seems steep, 32 ounces of concentrate will make 32 - 8 ounce glasses of juice would be like $.70 a day, for a month,  just off the top of my head using Jethro Bodeen math skills, LOL!

AND, you did not sit there pitting 60+ FREAKING pounds of tart Morties,  so no need for tree envy, LOL!!

I took measurements of the plants, in 3 weeks most have grown at least 10", some 13", one grew 19!!!!!!! The Do-Si-Dos Zkittlez is the one that grew 19, for sure will put her out next year. Black cherry soda is about 50" tall, but 44" wide, that thing is gonna be a big ole mother.
