paranoid gardening

I want to post all about my garden but paranoia and self-preservation stop me. It's a crazy world, eh?

What do you mean, it's March?

Oh... Wow!

hallucinogenic rewind

You know the way with PC games, like real time games, when you make an arse of things you can go back to the point of your last save and everything’s ok. I mean, all the mistakes you made, it’s like they never happened. You can probably isolate one particular blunder, a moment of bad judgement, which was definitely where it went wrong. So you go back to a saved version, start from there, and turn left where formerly you turned right.

I am hoping to do that for real. One night, I'm really out of it, I come to on the floor of a bedsit in the mid 70s, and the whole of my adult life has been a late adolescence drug induced dream. "Oh wow," I'd think. That awareness of a colossal dream experience, only dimly remembered.

Oh yeah, and...

...I'll need to get some charcoal and a blowtorch.

Herbal Technology

What I've been thinking is, a way to get the best from Sally D. I learned a lot from my stay in the Maghreb about shisha pipe use. The experiment will be to use Sally with the pipe in the place of tobacco, (it's reasonable to suspect that the apple flavoured mollasses soaked tobacco is for public show only, and that other herbs are smoked in private).

Neat Sally might be too much. Consider mixing it with st john's wort, common sage, and lemon balm.

*yawns and stretches*

Yeah! Springtime!

Better get out into the garden.

Do you know what strain your Sally D is?

This is a question I'm often asked. And here's a reply I'm going to standardize:

No, I don't. You're not the first to ask this, and my response is always the same: Do you KNOW what difference it makes? The leaves of this plant will do what you would expect from them.

It seems to change subtly depending on its environment. For example, I grow some plants in my home, and others in the greenhouse at my allotment. They all come from the same 'mother' plant, which I got several years ago. The greenhouse plants (the one in eBay is one of them) are different to the houseplants: their leaves are twice the size, and I find them to be twice as potent.

This changeability of the plant makes me think that it's environment rather than parentage which matters.
