George Washington


#1

Hey here’s a fun fact…George Washington was a grower! Lol stated the he grew “hemp” in his personal garden :grin: …talk about some presidential kush :yum:

"I am very glad to hear that the Gardener has saved so much of the St. foin seed, and that of the India Hemp. Make the most you can of both, by sowing them again in drills. . . Let the ground be well prepared, and the Seed (St. loin) be sown in April. The Hemp may be sown any where. "
George Washington to William Pearce, 24 February 1794

Yup, it is generally understood that Washington and Jefferson were well aware of the use of the “India hemp” for much more than just paper and rope.

Happy growing, sowing, and toking,
