You got buzy
And we are dancing in the streets... Lala
Thanks InTheShed I have that fresh air fan running pulling from the area and a fan blowing from the opposite end . I’m guessing 9-10 jars minus 3 . The roots always takes time to get out as you can see wrapped around the air stones but didn’t go down the drain this time . Two air stones payed off .Whoa that's a shit-ton of bud WH! Excellent haul and I hope the airflow is good in there because they are packed in tight .
When you have a chance get a shot of all the crazy roots too. I don't know if you make any topical oils, but if you do, save the stems, leaves, and roots and dry them out. They have healing properties separate from the pain relief found in the buds.
Congrats on that beautiful harvest.
Another I didn’t know, good ole iPhone to spell it the way it wants sorry. Will have to check into it, still have the ones from the defoliation .I think I said salve, as a skin slave would be someone forced to rub salve on your skin whenever you requested .
I make skin salve from roots, stems, and leftover leaves, infused in grapeseed oil or pumpkin seed oil (or a combination), and then I add beeswax (or maybe soy wax next time). It works well on hives, bites, rashes, and other skin conditions.
Most definitely want and will check the containers out .Simple to make if you have a crock pot. After your hands recover from trimming, cut the stems into smaller pieces and put them in the freezer with the leaves. When the roots dry, put everything in a crock pot and just cover with coconut oil (now that I think of it, that's what I used for this), and leave it on low or medium (around 180º) for 12 hours, stirring whenever you can.
Let it cool over night and drain it through cheesecloth. Here is SweetSue's tutorial on adding the wax:

I used more wax than she does there because I wanted it to be more solid so I could use it in those large chapstick/deodorant holders you can get from Amazon. We can't link to Amazon directly but this search should do it:
Empty Deodorant Containers Round (2.2oz, Pack of 6) - BPA Free Clear Plastic
We use it all the time.
I have a different recipe for topical pain oil if you're interested in that.
