A new story from Oregon Rooted: The Dirt Show
So, you know, I can smell it in there and whatever is in that stock, that sacagawea stock and this is the important part of the conversation. We were just trying to have is that whatever is in that packaging we have stock, I can find nowhere else. And it also, it falls in line with the samples that everybody else passes off as active as cheese and smoke one. So that's the stock that I, you know, your reserving for a while. I've got a couple other things a couple other. There's an exodus cheese back cross to Corporal, what was the other one? I don't know, I've got them in the other room there. It's just about to take another bomb hit. Push the envelope. Go for it. Well, I'm going to pick your brain on. You keep mentioning the sacagawea, you're working with that it has the characteristics that you would think of as a skunk. What are those? Can you describe those characteristics just so I understand? The actual physical characteristic I'm not sure I would be able to do because I'm not familiar enough with the original stock to I think that some of the characteristics I think I'm familiar with such as like the bulbous swollen. Fraction characters and stuff at leafy, but in between the leafing the bud to fire ratio is a little bit higher. Aside from that, I think that the structurally I think it's more leafy than a lot of the other cultivars out there. But what I'm really more familiar with than I think I'm more familiar with any ways is that the Turks, which are getting the hard to describe I wouldn't know what I'm comparing them to. But for me, go ahead. I was just going to say, do you know where the term then roadkill skunk comes from? Because I hear a lot of people, quote unquote, breeders throughout, oh, it's the old roadkill. I mean, is that something different? Yes, the roadkill spunk is, in my opinion, from what I understand very different from the skunk one that I'm working with. Anything at all. So my understanding of where the term the roadkill stunt came from, that really was only a term to differentiate between the skunk one. Because what was flooding the market at certain times was skunk one, and that was being passed off as the roadkill skunk or as scum. And all these people who would go through these exuberant efforts put in the leg work to find the skunk kept getting skunk one, and they were kept getting pissed. Me was basically this. And what kept happening to me. And so finally I got to the point where I literally would go over to my dealers have to be like, no, not that shit. That shit that smells like the skunk on the road. That's what I want. A roadkill gun. Do you have any of that? It became a term. So essentially, you bring in that to the blueberry line. Is that how I understand it? No, not the roadkills. I'm working with the skunk one. Well, I didn't mean the road. I apologize. I didn't mean the roadkill. I just meant that the lineages that you're working with the sacajawea, the exodus, whatever the skunk one, incorporating that into the blue line then, the blueberry. Yeah. I see. More important. Actually, with the second degree, there's a velvet rope, Motown lockdown, a strawberry recent, but so what I'm looking for now is the skunk in the accident, male, so that I can bring that male to other lines actually. Ah, okay. What happened was I made that back of candy because most of them on Instagram. And when I made that candy, I realized the value that was in that so I could do a stock that's crumple in stock that's missing from the gene pool. And so if I could, I realized I was like, well, if I can recreate that stock of candy, I know that there's a lot of other things that I could make as well that would be also unique. So it's not just the blueberry line actually. I'm trying to do take it outside of the blueberry line. Well, I mean, I kind of thought that would have been something that you either would have been working on or would do. This seems like a natural evolution at some point or whatever. I'm excited to see all the stuff that's coming out. Are you releasing anything coming soon? Or is it something where you're still working on things or you got stuff out? You want to explain all that? No, the skunk stuff back to the stuff that will be next year probably towards the end of next year. It's going to take me a little while to find that mail. It's going to take me four to 6 months to find that mail. And then another four to 6 months just to do an initial testing. I'll test out one or two of the progeny probably two of the progeny to see if the male is producing hemp or herms or leaf and then if he passes that test, then at the same time, I'll pollinate a bunch of different things, but I only test that two of them initially and the two pass the test and we'll release those who will consider releasing those and then jump under the other stuff. It just depends on what type of value that male brings to the market, which brings up a whole other conversation, which is that the market is currently in the process of being restructured, so there is currently the kitty. Stray cats. In the field. I'm not coming back from that. I'm sorry. Oh no. That's a cute cat. All right. The market is collapsed. Not collapsed, but it's being restructured. So we don't know the value that that male will bring to the market. So if that male brings this really high value to the market, figuring out how to restructure those into the market is going to be difficult because basically, I'm at a point where I'm a breeder now. I have I'm a reader now and my work isn't for free anymore. So I can't, you know, I can't do what I did previously. Well, not only that, I mean, it's being a good breeder, just like you said, it takes a lot of time. I mean, months, years. To really work lines and find what you're looking for. It will take me a solid year just to pawn chuck some things into market from this excess cheese. And I want to refine that, which I don't think that the market will bear that, but if I find the passion to do that, and then yeah, so it's just everything's different now and I'll just keep looking at the cat and that was a good distraction. I've been trying, I've been here a year, you know, and I can't feed it.
