Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

UPS 2nd Day Air Delivery from Louisiana Nursery + Fight against Tuberous Roots of Greenbrier!

We  found very special trees and shrubs in Louisiana from Albert, Dalton, Ken and Belle Durio in Opelousas, Louisiana.
Louisiana Nursery 
We got the largest size available, five gallon pots, for getting a good start of an established shrub or tree.
This is where our special Magnolia Namnetense came from and our beloved Quercus Virginiana Grand View Gold.
Again, I've built in clickable points with English information as we always talked to Mom & Dad to whom we mailed these videos in The Netherlands.
Their Catalog of MAGNOLIAS and OTHER GARDEN ARISTOCRATS, has been the most impressive and comprehensive one, we ever saw...
Love their quote: FOR THOSE WHO KNOW THE ECONOMY OF QUALITY
We sure treasure their special Magnolia (see post below) and their Golden Live Oak (see also below).
At the end of the video Pieter mentions the mean thorns on those Greenbrier, standing backwards. ←click link for seeing such a thorn.

  2. Hello Mariette, The tuberous roots of Smilax are indeed edible, but not by boiling, since they are too woody. The preparation method, so Euell Gibbons informs me, is to pound the roots (apparently an arduous task) and then rinse out a flour-like substance, which can then be used to make jellies, thicken stews or make pancakes.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Wow, that would take almost a village for making good use of those nasty Smilax roots... Not for our pantry!
      Hugs,

  3. You two never cease to amaze with all your hard work and inventiveness. You should be proud of your achievements.

    God bless you both.

  4. Magnolie, was für wunderbare Bäume... haben wir hier auch - vereinzelt. Und in Georgia gibt es tatsächlich keinen Apfelbaum? Aber ich denke, dafür sehr viel Sonnenschein. Dieser Tage ist der Himmel bei uns wieder grau und das hatten wir sehr oft diesen Sommer.
    Viele Grüsse zu dir ins blaue sonnendurchflutete Georgia :-))) Ich war zwei Wochen in Schweden... UND auch die Sonne pur :-)) Das war ein Traum... Entspannung pur.

    1. Liebe Viola,
      Ja, besonders diese französische Sorte von Magnolie die doppelt blüht und duftet.
      Nein, Äpfel brauchen kühlere Tage und die gibt es hier nicht. Auch unser Frühling und Sommer haben sehr viel Regen gesehen!
      Über Schweden hatte ich schon gelesen und auch kommentiert...😉
      Liebe Grüße,
      Mariette

  8. Magnolias are beautiful. Here where I live there is also. They are one of the first flowering trees to announce spring.

      Yes, they are and they make happy forebodes of spring. Here often they bloom twice a year.

    1. Dearest RTC,
      My Pieter inherited his lower back pain from his Dad but he lived and worked with it.
