Q: Hi Mrs_Larimar, how are you feeling today? Please tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? What do you do? Family, kids? Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, what’s you favorite Christmas movie and dish? Do you travel much? What’s your dream destination?
A: Hi Victoria, I am fine today. I live in a tiny village in Europe. If I don't grow, I work with mental/ social/physically handicapped people.
My kids are grown up and live in their own houses. I enjoy this place in my village very much, I have a lot of private space and friendly neighbors, who let me do my thing. I got 3 wonderful Old English bulldogs, who live with me in my house.
In my area a lot of people grow cannabis. I moved to this area 20 years ago. It's like a time travel to live here. A lot of unconventional PPL live here. I like it very much.
I've been travelling a lot. I have seen a few dream destinations. The last years I only travelled for visiting music festivals.
I would say, I've found my place to be and have no big " Dream Destinations " where i want to go. I enjoy my life here, seeing my kids and sharing the day with my dogs. And in the end growing cannabis.
And no, we don't celebrate Christmas in regular way. We do it like the Pagans, celebrating " Midwinter", with a fire in the garden and some people and music.
Q: When and why did you start growing weed? Please tell us about your very first grow experience. How did it turn out?
A: My first attempt was in 1985, I grew some weed on my balcony. It ended that I brought it to my granny's garden, for having a better space. My lovely grandma nursed it for me. Because my balcony was too exposed.
Then I had a long break in growing, because I stopped smoking. I went on growing when I moved to my actual place 8 Years ago. I had a burnout, and insomnia so I had to grow my own medicine.
Q: Do your family and friends know you grow weed or you keep it a secret?
A: It's not unusual that people grow in my area. My friends and family know about it.
Q: What’s your personal opinion on legalization? Do you sell weed or grow for personal use only?
A: I just grow for me and my family. When I was 20, I always said: "my kids will smoke weed legally." My point on legalization is a clear one. Worldwide legalization of cannabis! I celebrated this year with South Africa and Canada. And hoping soon that smoking weed is free for everyone.
Q: Would you consider working in the cannabis industry? What segment?
A: My dream is to open a dispensary/ coffeshop with edibles. If it's legal in the EU.
I still prepare a lot of edibles/ drinkables, sweeties for my friends and family
Q: What changes would you like to see on GrowDiaries?
A: No big changes, just more flexibility in the schedules, to see how often you do waterings/ feedings in a week.
Q: Who should we interview next?
A: How about A Breeder-Interview? I want to hear a few words from @James from RQS. He finally brought me to this platform, and I learned here more in 7 Months than in the 20 years before. It's so great to be here and being a part of the community. I can speak to people from the whole world and that's great. THY @GrowDiaries for the platform, and looking for good Sponsors for the competitions, and for doing your daily work.
Love and Peace
