Black Mountain Herb Part 2

2496 words - 10 pages

Looking up, aware That I had lost the thread and a few moments in quiet reflection, I stood.Having already lost a few guests as they harvested their plant, I spoke to the others. They looked typical for this stage. Most were incredibly stoned, running an eye over the small silvered containers of weed I could see why.Oh well, isn't that what the love of weed is all about?"Friends, this is where your tour becomes decidedly different."Grinning I walked into the approximate centre of them, the people being stoners, politeness took over and they quieted down a lot, not that they were boisterous. This is the Blue Mountain farm. Not Bushed Gardens."We think your visit here should be fun. And tours I have taken where I followed someone around for three hours then left without having a chance to look at exactly what I wanted to look at were always Not Fun to me"My arm idly touching at different points about the farm as I spoke."I can highly recommend a smoke by the trout outside, the weather is good.

That spot has a large bong shaped by our Glassblower, a memorial with a picture of the babe engraved in thre glass. It seems she helped deliver. My wife and a few others were there at the time too. I can tell you one thing. That kid will never need to worry about College.Walking into the said workshop, I got comfortable.I mean, Stoners were never known for conformity were we?When the original artisan asked for room and board, I had to build a workshop. The artisans all wanted a log cabin, and that seems to fit the place. Sitting in a comfortabls chair next to a low burning iron stove, I sipped a cup of coffee. The heavy yellow Pine roofbeam running into the main area, a soft light kind of straying from the various work areas.They had left it very medievil.
