Thread: My homemade black powder

  1. #2241
    Well, I knew of this semi-secret spot that actually has water year around, even with the drought here in Arizona and we hit that spot on our little vacation. Sure enough, it had Willow trees, and I (think) it is actually Black Willow. I brought a decent supply of it back to cook up, along with some Shaggy Bark "Common" Juniper.

    From the pics I researched on the net, I think I got Black Willow, but I am hoping you guys can verify for me what it is for sure. Here's some pics. The only "flower/seeds" I could see looked like brown dried out versions of the little fuzzy white ones Black Willows get. Mostly all were gone and the leaves are starting to turn as it is autumn. Thanks in advance for any input on this!

    Looks like willow to me.. if you do harvest the willow, save the bark. It makes great arthritis medicine.
    Any technology not understood, can seem like Magic!!!

    I will love the Lord with all my heart, all my soul, and all my mind.
