The Flourishing Vine

My good gardening nerd friend has finally bitten the bullet and made her own FB page. She got bombarded with posts and messages on her personal account and figured it was time for an upgrade! While my focus is on DIY stuff including gardening, hers is definitely more gardening and recently she messaged me stating “I think I am a plant nerd” and “I may have a slight problem with plants.”

Give her a like and share on the page to keep the spirit of DIY going. The less we rely on large companies means the more power we take back. We should have a voice again and until we pull the money plug from these guys, it won’t happen.

Check out her latest Post! Or just like the page already!

As part of my homesteading and self sustainable dreams. I went to a plant swap this morning! I traded in some of my plants for the following, gloxinia, two white gingers, coffee cups ( species of elephant ear) konjalc, peace lily, angel teumpet, spider plant, fire spike, a lemon tree, okra, Thai basil, a orange tree, and a cute little house plant with a long name! Super fun! ❤️🌱 looking forward to all the adventures these bring me!

Updates Coming Soon. To the site and Business!

Hi all, Why Not DIY will soon be the one stop place for many solutions to just DIY!. I will still  include as much of the diet, exercise, herbal and gardening tips but I am expanding into other topics as well. I have found a need for more people to do things themselves rather than pay enormous prices because they aren’t confident in their own skills. I am guilty of this because of convenience and lately, especially with my newest grill build, I felt as if I wasn’t capable of doing it… until i just did it. More on that later. Re-branding will start including some techy help, some engineering field advice, and project management solutions as I grow closer to my certification for Federal/Government contract license. Thanks for sticking with me on this and I look forward to many more posts.

Master fasting ingredients (for 1-108 day fasts)


This is the material I ordered for the Master Fast I just did. Remember if you are new to fasting, ease yourself into it with 1-3 days at first… do not attempt longer without consulting a physician or have had 1 year of fasting experience.

Mix 32 ounces grape juice with 4 ounces lemon juice and 20-32 ounces of water. Do not chug, drink 1-2 of these over the course of the day. stop after 12 hours to do the dry fast phase during the night.

Mix 1/4 cup charcoal with 1/4 cup benonite clay and 1/2 cup psyllium. mix this together and store in a dry container. When ready to use, take 4 table spoons of the mix and combine it with 1-3 cups of the grape+lemon juice. Try to consume immediately. You can wait for it to congeal a little but I did not like the texture personally, I rather chug it and get it over with asap.


Let me know if you have any questions, I will either answer them or refer you to a place to get the answer.

Mitragyna Speciosa (kratom) awesome, yet demonized plant.

I am not going to make any claims to medical advise, advocate the consumption or usage of this plant other than for research as a botanical specimen, I will say that there are some cool things being said about this plant. I urge everyone to do their own research on the plant themselves, especially the legal status for your country/state because while it may be said to be a great benefit to natural medicine… The FDA is dragging their feet with accepting that, actually they have tried to ban it countless times already. There have been news reports about kratom related deaths… I think I have counted 12 total in the past 4 years… then I either was unable to get a copy of the toxicology report, or the report showed a wide variety of chemical substances found in the deceased, but they only focused on the speciosa. So Please, before you do anything, judge, take, share, etc… do your own research on the matter, consider the source of the research (peer reviewed sources are generally a good place to start), and form your own opinion rather than the idiot mass point of view force fed by government officials who “know whats best for everyone”. Now on to my post. These pictures are not my own, the farmer I get all my specimen from took them for me and asked me to post them.

Kratom, born in the eastern world and has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb grows mainly in the jungles of Thailand/Indonesia/Southern Asia. The leaf is dried and either packaged up as a dried leaf or crushed into fine powder.

Now the articles and old herbal remedy books state the medicinal effect, even down to the different types or tree/leaf. These are noted as “strains” based on the vein color in the leaf and others make claims that different locations where the tree grows has an effect on the “herbal medicine” the plant may or may not provide.



The difference in these leaves from the same kind of tree is amazing. The alkaloids found in these (20+) different types are being studied even by pharmaceutical companies for their effectiveness. In fact, the most interesting thing I found in my research was the application for a patent on a few of the alkaloids in the leaf was dated just a few months prior to the initial attempt to ban the leaf in the US. If you are interested in my research on this, let me know and I will try and dredge up that patent again for you. Regardless of how you feel about the plant, I find it exciting that a relative to my favorite plant in the world “Coffea arabica” (where the coffee bean comes from) and has a few similar alkaloids. The plant is just a plant. It will not hurt you, only you can hurt yourself with it. I advocate the scientific exploration of this amazing specimen and hope we the people do not fall under to the whims of government and drug companies and their “nanny state” bullying and propaganda. Speak up for yourself! read up for yourself, if you question the source… try to discover who funded the article or research as that will lead you to see exactly what the agenda behind the article may impose in your life. 


Have a great day, message me here if you’re interested in obtaining samples of this specimen or visit Messaging me or commenting here is the better way at the moment as the website is still under construction (i work on it in between my 50+ hour a week job and spending time with the wife and dogs :))

We’re Back!

The DIY site is back. After my hiatus to change jobs and start dabbling more and more in the cryptocurrency world, I am back to share more DIY projects. I even am starting to have some DIY herbs, spices and botanical specimens. I also have partnered up with another DIYer who owns their own vape juice line. They are licensed and meet all FDA standards… due to the nature of both of these, even if they are legal I will only be accepting crypto currency for these sales. Fear not, I will host many tutorials on cryptocurrency… how to use, how to obtain and how to spend.

Welcome Steemit community, I have now added you guys on my blogging list and will be hopefully posting some decent blogs for you guys to enjoy too!
