i was given a roo skull a while ago, im going to find a bit of bush and set it to rest when i get the time
if yall are interested i can send pigs when i do its
I was walking with a good fren yesterday and we ended up walking about 11 kilometers just through our neighborhood.
Pic related is that compared to my activity for the past month. My legs hurt like mad now lole
went for a hike in tennessee woods, hiked deep into the forrest. wore warm cloath, and no-slip hiking boots due to the ice coating the forrest floor. found a church, fucked with the church organ pipes and looked around to see if there was any hidden loot, there was none. built tent, watched some videos i downloaded on phone, then in the morning put tent away and hiked back. kinda desolate, honestly. no animals or insects.
Is there a story you have about where the skull came from and how it came onto your possession?
whew that's a long walk
Will you make a burial, like a cairn? >>10698
I hope you won't be disgusted about walking>>10700
Lucky! When I find an abandoned building, it's already good if the walls are still standing or if they have not been vandalized.
the one's over here are HUGE but they never really bother landing so i can get a good pic of them.
>>10712>Will you make a burial, like a cairn?
maybe, tho i dont think ill bury it, just leave it somewhere nice, maybe with some food and flowers
next chance i get ill nightwalk and do it
Nice, what trees are you growing? i'm totally going to start gardening again. It really was fun and nice to not waste my money at the store for food i was growing for free. The last time i had to deal with a swarm of moths/caterpillars and then disease that nuked everything i was growing at the time. (tomatos, jalapinos, bell peppers, some plant that ironically worked as a pesticide once you mash it for oil, and an orange tree) and i think i'm going to start indoors, do my research on how to deal with that nonsense, and then move everything outside.
Apple, apricot, mirabelle plum, nectarine, flat peach, vine, currant, arbutus, blueberry, asimina triloba and kiwi. I would have liked very much to have citrus fruits too, but the hardiness zone of my country prevents me from doing so. I have stopped sowing annual plants, it requires a lot more work than trees and the slightest bad weather can destroy everything, trees are more expensive but it last a lifetime.
I think starting indoor is the right solution, but if you are in the Northern Hemisphere you should start now even if it's a little bit too late for this year. you can also invest in a greenhouse but it's not cheap. I used big water bottles instead.
Next time i'll take pictures, but today i helped a family fren who got injured. She couldnt manage the animals or take care of her garden because of how badly she got injured. she owns several chickens, a hare, and two baby ducks. had to collect eggs, and capture an escaped chicken along with other outdoor chores. Never really did any of this before and in my opinion, it was quite fun! Never touched a chicken before and hen was quite large. Guess i lost my city slicker virginity. See you later virgins.
I havent asked but apparantly the hen that escaped was a runt because none of the other chickens liked her, and apparantly she had her leg broken at one point which is one reason why she escapes. Although for a runt, she's quite huge. Dropped her by accident because i held her the wrong way and she must have been uncomfortable and flew out of my hands.
Is this from the dock or the area where you board the kayak? I've never kayaked, but I solo canoed. I hate that because I had to sit in the middle which, has to be the most unpleasant area of the canoe. Another aspect of solo canoeing which, is awful is the fact that you have to sit in the middle at all times or you tip over. Kayaks look very low from the looks of it. Kayaking seems to be kinda like a sedan whereas a canoe is like a truck.
I tried to climb a >10,900 ft mountain a few days ago, but I don't have much high altitude experience so I nearly passed out just before I could get to the peak. I had to slowly backtrack to a nice spot just below 9,000 to get my breath back. Set up my hammock and enjoyed a snack while I listened to a creek rattle past, high with snowmelt. I love the quiet you can hear once you get a mountain or two between you and the closest highway. I'm going to spend some time on other mountains before I try this one again, but I'll definitely be back.>>10712
That's a nice hammock spot. Lakes are really good.
Wew that looks extremely relaxing with great scenery. Are you posting from the hammock lole?
>>10764>are you posting from the hammock
I wish! I'm planning on building or buying a hammock stand so I can hang out at home, though. Then I will post exclusively from my hammock.
I remember listening to music in a hammock while camping. It is one of my most fond memories of camping because of how quiet and comfy it was. The hammock I was in wasn't even the nicest hammock because it doesn't have the most space. I am also laughing now about how I fell out of the hammock earlier that day. This talk about hammocks makes me want to buy my hammock for future usage. One issue, though, is I don't remember the brand other kids used back in the day I just remember it being expensive for a thirteen-year-old me (80-100 USD) and, they swore by the brand.
planted some seeds, those being
anaheim chili, cabbage, jalapeno, tomatillo, summer squash, cilantro, sweet pepper, spinach, cucumber, beefsteak tomatos, green onion, and lettuce. I bought a spearmint plant, and a snakeplant. both of those are going to stay indoors but the other plants will be eventually planted outdoors once they reach maturity.
Beefsteak tomatoes are so fucking good. I hope you have a good harvest, anon!
The seeds have sprouted into seedlings!
I wanna buy a good hatchet/tomahawk, unsure where to get a QUALITY one tho.
Why so communist anon?
LOL i didnt even know it was happening and i guess i missed it!
A cool and easy mushroom to grow is Stropharia Rugosoannulata. It's also known by the names of garden giant, winecap, King Stropharia, and burgundy mushroom. To grow it you just need to innoculate some mulch (very easy to do) then spread it around and refresh the mulch every few years. It tastes good and helps plants. Worms go nuts for the mycelium, and it actually sets microscopic snares to catch and eat parasitic nematodes that can hurt your plants. They also break down the mulch for high quality fertilizer.
tl;dr Winecaps are a great low-maintenence mushroom for beginning growers that help out garden plants in a variety of ways
worth looking into since i've seen that one at stores for a cheap price, thanks.
I tried to carve wood the other day. >>11108
Nice! Keep us updated.
what where you planning to carve the stump into?
Oh wow pretty lake
wonder why the cranes there in the first place?
Did you try getting near it?
I have to keep tying my tomato stalks to bamboo sticks or to the tomato cage or else they'll break. They are growing tho which is nice to see, no pests either which is nice.
Yep, thats pretty much the best way to handle that type of situationYou rolled the number 589075724 (no dubs or higher)
i've been using one teaspoon of organic oil castille soap and cayenne diluted with water as a pestiside and it's been working well. I've seen squirrels avoiding my plants like the plague, and it instantly killed gnats that infested my houseplants.
This area looks comfy. I miss visiting outdoor areas like that.
Any interesting animals in your local eco systems?
Personally mine got rekt so most of the animals are gone (at least not in forrested areas) but i used to see HUGE turtles, eagles, and at one point a great blue heron. Another animal was this interesting creature called a "yellow fox" apparantly they are quite dangerous but i honestly thought it was a cat or something and it got pretty close to me. lol
>>11901>Any interesting animals in your local eco systems?
Recently I've seen a flock of seagulls, which is weird because there's no sea near
Yep, bamboo sticks, that's what I forgot, maybe next year.
I created a monster.
[spoiler]they ran (so far away)[/spoiler]>>12035
Also, you forgot tomato cages lole
I don't know anything about /k/ stuff but that's fucking cool!
shoulda taken pics of the docs
Still nice shotgun shells tho
I remember having fun times going for hikes in the woods but now that i live in the city it'd take several days to drive out to the woods.
Beefsteak tomatos grown pretty damn big, and what's nice is another tomato plant fell apart, but i just stuck it in the dirt and it grew stronger roots and started growing again. also been harvesting tasty Jalapeños.
Bad news is winter is coming and i'm scared all my hard work will be for nothing. I don't have a greenhouse or anywear safe to store my plants and i'm not sure they'll survive. Any ideas on what to do? Or am i just worked up for nothing and maybe they'll last. It gets prettt damn cold, Sometime's we'll get sleet, sometimes its subzero but we've never gotten snow.

saw a big owl outside my house on a tree but it was way too dark outside so i couldnt take a pic
I know it's a little bit late but I'm pretty sure these plants have an annual cycle, every year you have to plants seeds from the fruits you've got.>>13475
Nothing exceptional: duck, rat, squirrel, frog... I'll try to take some pics. A little trick for frogs is to throw very small rocks near the spot you hear them, they'll think it's bugs and they come out of the bushes.
Anyone here plan to go on festivals this year?
Yeah i'm not too sure what happened. My plants just rotted away from the cold.
What kind? Music festivals or the "peanut festival" type of things?
I helped raise a wild box turtle. Fed her fruit and veggies and one day she left never to be seen again
That's what I thought. I hope you kept the seeds for this year. That's why I planted trees. But I'm still planting pumpkins: a lot to eat, easy conservation and minor inconvenient.>>13684
As long as it's outdoor, I guess? Nice little discovery your peanut festival, here's one I have done twice: "Obscene Extreme Festival".
This year I think I'll just go to the Death Feast open air, it's in Germany :)
Maybe one year I'll do the Burning Man but I heard recently it was flooded by instafags.
Nice design! How long did it take?
New national touristic wonder
people will say its some ancient marking
What's interesting is that my green onion plant was the only one that made it and it's still growing strong
Do you have any idea clue why that is the case?
perhaps because the other plants was fighting with it for nutrience and now since its alone, it's grown huge
Those look like blackberries, but the leaves aren't quite right. They should be in bunches of 5 with a finer sawtooth, and visible chevron grooving. Weird, since I eat wild blackberries fairly regularly and never come across any lookalikes (this is in N. America). It could be a different variety than what I'm used to, but it's always better to be safe.
Come from europe, same as you, look like blackberries but with different leaves. >>14293
Where this pic was taken?
Did you at least take the berries with you just in case you could eat it?
i live in the southeastern region of the United States, and i just spotted them growing in my yard.
