once we could SQUEEZE the oat kernals and see the milk, I 'zipped' them off the branches and FILLED the jar. It's SOOOO beautiful (and I use 100proof vodka) For some reason, when they hit the vodka FRESH, they turned even GREENER, and there was SUCH bubble activity (air gets caught in the husks) that all my shaking and pounding to release the bubbles caused the kernals to line up in beautiful patterns. The next wave that came to the milky stage were 'zipped' (slide fingers, pop off kernals) went onto a big, flat, bamboo tray and they're quietly going that lovely sage grey/green that we're familiar with. I did a second sowing when the first seemed to have germinated 'spottily' and they ALL germinated and because they're close together, will be much smaller. A single oat plant with plenty of room is a BEAUTIFUL thing! I will, I will get the photos up!!
What do you use oatstraw tincture for?
