We add organic beeswax to the salves to keep them solid when temperatures rise in the summer. We began selling plain cbd salve in 2020, but for 2021 we have four different salves: plain, with essential oils, with arnica, and with St. John's wort.  We use our wild harvested St. John's wort, farm grown arnica, and high quality essential oils, including peppermint, lemon, tea tree, and lavender oils when making the salve.​​

Siberian Pears

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 9:23 PM
I planted the seeds for these Siberian pear trees around 1985 so they are about 28 years old now.  This is a photograph of me under the trees in full bloom, taken in early May in Northfield, VT. They are very hardy trees of Pyrusussuriensis and the fruits make a delicious pear jelly, although they are fairly astringent and not good to eat fresh.  The pears are small and of similar size and shape to a Seckel pear.  Here at Lightfoot Farm they are processed in a steam juicer to produce juice for making the jelly.

You mention processing the Siberian pears in a steam processer. Would it work cooking them down and then letting them drip through a jelly bag? Or even a 'juicer' such as Breville?

You have some good memories with this tree and it is good to know that this tree is now big. The flowers of this tree are also looking so wonderful. I know the day when I grow first time the plant and I missed this plant so much because we shifted that place.

You have a beautiful tree out there. I can see that you really love Siberian Pear trees and you take a good care of it because if not, it will never turn out to be as beautiful as in the picture. I hope that I could plant some Siberian Pear tree someday. I know that it is also a wonderful choice for a windbreaker as it keeps its branches very low in height. I agree, it is now gaining in popularity, certainly because of its beauty.

That's amazing! It's really shocking how beautiful a single seed can become through years of taking care of it. It's a good thing that you have shared this on your blog because somehow, it will spread awareness on how beautiful this world can become especially when we all work together to save Mother Nature. Let’s all try to plant 1 seed for each person and see how much we can change through that simple act. If we start today then definitely, we can help those people who will live on this planet in future time.

If you would like to save money, you can go out and collect seeds, I've been doing it for a while now and have myself a decent seed collection and have grown a lot of trees but nothing that epic because I've only been doing this for about five years. I find it really enjoyable to germinate seeds, grow them into seedlings, and then plant them around random places, especially when they are difficult to germinate. I suggest you should try germinating some funky cactus seeds. Better yet, the next time you go somewhere special to you and you see a cool tree that has seeds, grab some and grow yourself a tree baby, and give it to someone who was there as a gift. That stuff is romantic as the movies you are enjoying every night and won’t cost you more than a couple of bucks.
