I wet trim all my weed before I hang it then it vacuum seal all the sugar leaves and freeze them. I keep the 99% isopropyl alcohol in the freezer too. Keep everything in the freezer until ready to get it done I put a stainless scrubber over the opening of the tap inside my 2 gallon glass jar with stainless tap it keep the tap from clogging .I use nothing plastic that may deteriorate into the alcohol.
I put frozen leaf in jar pour alcohol over with tap closed give a gentle stir or two and open her up and drain into a stainless coffee filter that fits in another glass jar. Once you have that done you have to filter it all again through a paper coffee filter this is a must.
Then outside with a hot plate a boiling pot of water with a large stainless bowl ( double boiler) do not let it go dry. Pour in bowl a little at a time and cook alcohol away stir constantly with silicone utensil when no alcohol is left and nothing seeps through the rolling paper it’s done takes 4-5 hour to cook down 2 gallons very flammable stay safe make sure the pot is way bigger around than the burner and No No No open flames or you go boom!

Hubby and the neighbour and I have been blocking spitting and stacking firewood like crazy.
Some company showed up and cut down every tree on my street about 20’tall beautiful trees perfectly healthy. They hauled way the nice straight trunks and were putting the rest through the chipper. Couldn’t bear the blatant waste of it all.
We asked if we could have the remaining logs from in front of our places. They brought it from the whole street lol.
We will be st it until at least Wednesday


This is what’s left
We’ve split 3 cord blocked another 3 and have the pile left to do.
