It will be a glorious weekend, weather-wise. I really do think that Alberta has Ontario’s weather this year! That being said, there will be some serious fencing and planting going on.
I am also reminded by recent cruisings of other sites, that i have a stockpile of natural dyes that are languishing in the cupboard. “Saving” things does no good to anyone, and things get old and weak, so best use them.
The indigo vat i started 3 years ago was very successful, then i forgot about it (????). It has also frozen through 3 winters, and at last year’s Wada Workshop, i asked Yoshiko if it might be still useable. With the liquid in it still being green, it’s a possibility, so that must be reactivated.
I also have brazilwood, sandalwood, madder and walnut. The walnut pot had been started two weeks ago and is going well, revving up some ecoprints that weren’t that fantastic.
(Sorry, it’s already gone to a good home :) )
Since i am still having problems getting into the stoodio, these things can be done while gardening. Waiting is a big part of the dye process and gardening, so might as well make good use of both wait periods!
