Vodka slows aging…

In cut flowers. Seriously, a little vodka in the water works as a preservative, interfering with the plants ripening process. So, they last longer and look fresher. Hmmmm… I know what your thinking. I’ll start the research/experiments and let you know the ‘vodka effect’ on people.

    Tammy, I was linked to your blog from Andrea Bellamy’s blog Heavy Petal. There is a picture of a Houseboat garden on the sunshine coast. Could you give me any details on where that was or if you know anything else about it? I’m planning to build my own and I would like to learn from the experience of others.Thank you,ChrisVictoria BC

    Hi christopher,I don’t know too much about the houseboat. It’s in Gibsons BC Right on the main dock by Molly’s Reach. The photo is of the houseboat and a portion of the dock that the garden has expanded onto. That’s about all i know.. just snaped the pic because i thought Andrea would like it. If you do end up in Gibsons try the water from the city fountain – it’s the best ever!

    I completely agree with Tammy that Vodka slows aging. It is said that pouring a citrus-flavored soda or an alcohol like vodka into the water in which the cut flowers are kept will prolong the time flowers stay fresh. Floriculturists confirm that in the correct proportion, this mixture will keep a bouquet bright, providing it water and food. And what about your second research Vodka effect on people.Vodka can be paired with food and cigar.I choose to Buy Cigars online.

At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead
Our cabin in #smithers was one of the many highlights on @route16_ca A view of #hudsonbaymountain and an adorable cabin in the woods... #explorebc #motorcycleroadtrip #motorcycle #roadtrip #route16 #travelnorthernbc #cabininthewoods
A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
