    One change I will make next time is to use less of everything. The liquid produced from 1 quart of whole milk would have been

    I took the middle layer in the mason jar using a meat injector syringe and added it 1:10 to a gallon of whole milk from the grocery store. I then poured out about a quarter of the gallon to account for any expansion, and I set it in my garage.

    Twelve hours later after both of us worked hard to track down a foul odor, we realized that this milk needed to go all the way outside. It had developed very

We have learned to culture and grow the microorganisms that are beneficial to our plants, and we have learned to use AACT (actively aerated compost teas) to get the most water soluble nutrients as we can from

This combination should not only repel the evil green worms, but it will also be a good antibiotic/preventative medicine, and the sulphur in the garlic will be a good fungicide.

  6. Emmie's Backyard Fermented Plant Extracts from Dandelions! #2

    Again, using my kitchen scissors, I made 3 piles and chopped up the plant parts. I then weighed each pile and

Since this is free to the savvy organic farmer, creating these supplements should save hundreds of dollars a year on commercial products that serve the same purpose in our gardens. The plant extracts will provide the growth hormones along with essential

For most of us, by using molasses we are able to get the magnesium that our plants need, but for our calcium needs, most of us have to fall back on a commercial product, and we end up buying one of the many versions of calmag supplement that are available. Because of a lock on the market by being the only source of an important nutrient, prices for this supplement, especially

    Materials

    I like a ratio of 1oz bud to 4 sticks (1 pound or 2 cups) of butter (salted/unsalted whatever your making calls for).

    Reflective materials can be mounted to panels to be hung or set up in your room. That way you can clean behind them.
    Having worked in restaurants, here's a couple of cleaning solutions.
    9 parts water 1 part bleach in a spray bottle. Mark the bottle. Spray on walls let dry. We'd do this on counters, then wipe them down in the AM.

    I take 2000mgs of niacin and cranberry pills each day. My test is this Wednesday. I'm not trying to fail because if I do I have to take a 6-8 month class. Should I be clean by now? I'm 110lbs and 5'6.

    Tincture Central


    Started another tincture. The Road Kill Skunk I was gifted this week has the most delicious smell, I decided it was the perfect choice for a quick tincture recipe I found. Someone mentioned that they'd seen a video on YouTube somewhere of some doctors who were using this recipe to treat cancer. I haven't seen this video, and to be honest, never went looking for it.

    I wanted to say quickly though, I realized I make my oil differently than everyone else. I freeze my cannabis, and flavoured vodka (gasp) for 24 hours. Mix together for 3 minutes, and strain. Mix everything back together and into the freezer. It sits
