 holy crap, that's some serious beard representation there.

No doubt. I always wondered whatever happened to Yukon Cornelius.

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

After 3 years of failure, suddenly, tremendous success!  Angelica babies!  Dozens of 'em!

Thanks everyone! 

 

Congrats to you both! And holy crap, that's some serious beard representation there.

 

Thanks!  I tried but the Mother-In-Law said I needed to be clean shaven for the festivities. 

 

Congratulations Joe, on the angelica.  I hope you got a phone number after all that effort.

Hah!

Grand Wormwood harvest is in full swing and it is a beautiful crop.  If we had a little more rain, we could easily score a second harvest.

Well I am really kicking myself in the arse now because I could have ordered some Vilya and maybe a Delaware Phoenix selection from Catskill and had it shipped to our family place here in Montana.
Maybe I should get some of the wormwood growing along Rock Creek so I won't go back to Texas empty handed!

My Vilya verte showed up yesterday from Catskills with the batch number worn/smudged off :o

They are out of stock now so must have been their last shipment... good guess as to the range of batch numbers it may be, Mr. Legate?

Damn handcrafted booze and cheap sharpies!

Can you make out anything on the batch number?  80s? 70s?

Holy shit!  It doesn't just look smudged but spindled and mutilated, too! :shock:
