They were on their sell by date and the poor things had their heads drooping over and the stems a bit shrivelled under their heads.
Anyway I remembered that half a teaspoon of castor sugar in a bucket of water is a good rose pick me up. I cut the stems down and saved the cuttings from the bottom in true Morticia Adams style, thinking I will be doing the same with the top half when the roses have completely finished.
I left the roses drinking overnight and it worked a treat. Their necks were all plumped up, and perkily holding up their heads and starting to bloom out. Nice one God I thought. Rather than waste the water, I changed all the water in all the Rose cuttings on my windowsill. These are now manically sprouting new shoots already! I put the rest of the water on my plants which caught the frost, and my Tulips in pots.
Well I never realised plants liked a little sugar. It’s obvious really, they are all growing out of season, and not getting enough sunlight, they convert sunlight into sugars. The Tulips are all standing up to attention, and their leaves have all gone nice and plump and curly! One lot have started to wilt a bit, so I will give them a little more this morning.
Anyway, I was planning to prune my Olive Trees in May. The thing is I really need to make some Olive leaf tea, and mix it with some Dried Wild Greek Oregano for a brew. I have a friend who is doing a detox, and I realised these two herbs will help a lot to kill off pathogens, and restore normal function at a cellular level.
I was very concerned about cutting the leaves off my Olive trees yet, because they store their energy in their leaves. Anyhow, while I was having a cigarette in the garden this morning, God pointed out that if I gave this particular tree a little Honey and water in about the same mix, it would compensate the tree for losing it’s leaves.
Brilliant, I thought. He said try the mix out on the wilting Tulips first and see if they look better than the sugar water and decide which to use!
Then I asked if there would be any point giving the mixture to the other four trees. He said not at all, in fact it could probably make them Fruit!
Well. The tree that is singled out for this experiment had three small slugs having a party on it’s trunk last night before I went to bed. I put the slugs in the hedgerow.
I trimmed back three of these trees last May after flowering. The tree that is singled out was the only tree that bore fruit last year. I planted the olives, there were about seven or eight of them. You never know, they might miraculously sprout, it has been known.
So, if the Tulips like the Honey better than the Sugar, I will give the best mixture to the Olive tree later, and then it will be OK to start gradually pruning it for a harvest of leaves for the Oleosporin. I think that’s how it’s spelt anyway.
This all came about because I have an intolerance for high GI sugars. I put a little Honey on my porridge on Saturday and suffered with a sugar imbalance for most of the day. Anyway I was ravenously hungry at lunchtime. I had to try to balance out the shock with a slow drip feed of Dates.
I am sure it’s refined sugar in everything’s that is causing so much sickness and cancer. I am cynical enough to think the drug companies actually know this. If we are sick they get to sell more drugs to manage our symptoms. It won’t cure us, because we will still be eating the sugars.
well the Honey won the test. When I put the sugar water on the Tulips on Saturday, the leaves all curled up in a sort of crinkly mass. They looked pretty, but using the similar solution with Honey the leaves are nice and tall and straight. I think the sugar is too quick a shock for them. Where it got down the veins quicker than getting into the cellulose part of the leaf it made them curl up. I suppose it does the same to our veins and arteries. Not to mention the Heart Muscle itself. Perhaps there is a hypertension caused with sugar in our venous system too.
I made some amazing pancakes this morning with sweet potato and almond powder. Very sweet to my taste with some frozen blueberries from Iceland. It was the Waitrose recipe from their latest book so I am going to post it on my cooking blog later. I had enough mix left over to make some sweet blini type pancakes to go with that Gravadlax.
Anyway I put about a pint of the Honey water, Rainwater, on the singled out Olive tree, just to start getting it used to the idea. I will start giving it a drink every day for three days, and then trim off some leaves. If I can see it’s not stressed, I will continue trimming and pruning over a few weeks. I can dry out a handful of leaves at a time. Happy days!
Another discovery! Due to all the wet weather and low light levels earlier in the winter, my Olive trees have developed some nice green algae on their leaves. It was hiding in plain sight! It occurred to me that although this green algae is harmless, it’s not allowing the leaves to photosynthesise. The only way to get it off will be to delicately wipe off all the affected leaves. Half an hour or so at a time should get them done in a week or so.
Then I started thinking about the sooty mood which they are now fairly clear of because of picking off all the brown scale shells last year, and washing the leaves. I also sprayed them a few times with a mild whey solution which seems to help the tree grow good bacteria to fight off pathogens.
It occurs to me that the sooty mood is actually the green mold that dies because of the sugar from the honeydew the scale insects give off in the nymph stage. Perhaps it’s one of those cascade things that causes the sooty mood to form from the algae spores.
I suppose this is a bit like the various fungus we have in our gut. First off the gut wall gets compromised and the Candida migrates through the gut wall as it is on the refined sugar steroids we give it. The healthy balance of our gut bacteria gets out of sync. Then the Candida travels to other parts of the body loaded with sugars, and morphs into the tendril stage and lodges in the cell walls. It probably takes with it anaerobic bacteria that thrive in a low oxygen environment. This feeds off the nutrients we give it from the blood and it secretes toxins.
Our bodies can’t fight a multiple infestation of fungus threads, unhealthy bacteria, and toxins. This is probably the trigger for the cells to start multiplying and mutating in an effort to contain the battle going on. It just causes a tumour, or infected tissue. Our antibodies can’t fight these infections all the while the sugars are being pumped into our system via energy drinks, refined sugar in tea and any other way we take our poison chalice.
I am convinced our health depends on prevention rather than a management strategy for symptoms.
I have probably described this cascade in laymen’s terms in a simplistic way, but I think I am on to something. I also think Sugar substitutes like aspartamine have the same effect as sugar, because I get wobbly if there’s is anything with artificial sweetner in it too. I still have the same response. Also the artificial stuff is probably more toxic, along with the cocktail of preservatives in pre prepared food it’s like a time bomb being stored up to the point our immune system can’t cope any longer.
Strangely Vitimin D, I Think is also an amino acid that regulates a lot of body functions. I wonder if slapping sunscreen all over is a good idea, if we do not synthesise the vitimin D even though we are in the Sun, because it screens UV, and this is an essential synthesised nutrient our body needs. We are up the creek. Better to get small doses of sunlight, Not get burned by covering up and wearing a Sun hat rather than using Sun block and not getting the benefit of being in the Sun early morning and late evening.
