Summer at the Church

This Summer started early and hot. Our poor garden wilted on the vine. It is only in the past few weeks with some monsoon like rains,that it is  starting to recover and we now actually have a garden.

This has been a Summer of Blooms. Thank you to son Joseph for helping manifest this bloom.

“Peyodro” (San Pedro Peyote grafts started at the beginning of the Summer) and deep rooted Peyote plants in planter

Jorge and Annie cutting Peyote tops–we have since replaced these long ceramic blades with paring knife sized blades for better cutting. Beautiful and powerful.

It is important when cutting Peyote to leave a good amount of green top so the plant can produce new growth. It has been stated that five years of growth will restore former mescaline content. We hope to initiate some Peyote studies on the topic of mescaline content in greenhouse Peyote.
