I’m really excited to do some microscopy, I just haven’t found the time yet. So many wonderful projects here.
Awesome! I asked because this has been on my back burner for years. When I found out you actually have to practice at the identification, I kinda chickened out a little. Well, a lot.
Maybe you will inspire me to try again. I have a bin of worm compost ready to harvest. :)
the ten I can remember off the top of my head are Hornbeam, autumn olive, jujube, russian olive, rosa rugosa, black locust, sea berry, osage orange, hazelnut, and black thorn. I'll ask fred about the other two next time I see him.
Last time I visited the Bullocks Permaculture Homestead, they gave me a pile of fan palm seeds. I have moved twice since then and fortuitously, 5 of the seedlings ended up at Wheaton Labs with me. We will see how they like Abbey life :)
