Me too! I started some apple trees from seed several years ago with precisely this in mind. When I learned it’s very rare to have a good fruit from seed, I pulled them. I do have a Coastal Redwood, several Trident Maples, Mikawa Yatsubusa, & others presently being sculpted. You?
This is an old recipe for coughs and colds.
Each spring, when the coniferous trees (pine trees) grow fresh, new needles, (those are the ones on the tips that are a lighter shade of green) I would take a day to find the freshest pine trees in the cleanest areas far from roads and traffic, pinch off the fresh growth and gather a large bag... or two of the needles.
Next, I would stack them in a sterilized glass container (as seen here) adding sugar in between well-packed layers. I add a bit of distilled water added at this stage. After a few days the sugar melts and you then fill the container to the top with distilled water. You wait six months and voila - delicious, powerful pine syrup that is PACKED with vitamin C and turpentine.
Two powerhouse ingredients great for all kinds of ailments and good to have in the cupboards. It is also incredibly tasty and hard NOT to drink as it's really meant to be used as medicine. However... many of my guests would sheepishly ask if they could have a "swig" of the pine cordial when visiting... you know... "to prevent any possible future colds and coughs." lol.

Much is wrong with the world right now. Good days and bursts of energy are few. On that one day when you are able to laugh, do what it takes to laugh your heart out. Fill your soul with the cackles, because those are the days that recharge you. Take care of your mental health.
