Hola, dudes & chicks!
You see those fellas? I brought them here in this village several years ago as cuttings from my seed grown cacti. After they've rooted themselves we've cut them for cloning and maybe some tea... ;)
WOW! I was surprised how the careless inhabitants made them grow so huge :)
I'm so proud of my (grand)kids :) For sure they're very powerful now. If you remove the thorns you can eat them right away...
Despite the not so appropriate gardening methods at this place, my visit here gave me a blessing with this encounter. There is a lot of earth and forest property here and nobody to work on them. It's just the owner that has some grand ideas of feeding up to a hundred people, but all the volunteers just come and go. Well he's still a friend of mine and I try to help him as best as I can. A lot of hard labor. There're machines tho... many kinds of them.
I still prefer the minimalistic homegrown lifestyle.
However I approve the spiritual lessons over there and I wish to come back at my place as soon as I could (maybe hitchhiking) ;)
I still have to bring home one different variety of indigenous american cacti for my genetic collection. You can see it on the first picture in the paper box/ bag...
I believe it's Echinopsis Bridgesii
That's it for now...
I guess my mission here is complete this time.
