One of your Staff members needs our help,
Help me not only to save this young puppy's life but free her from the agonizing pain of arthritis. The sooner she gets the surgery the better her outcome when it comes to arthritis. It'll take an adult dog 2-3 months to heal from this type of surgery, but since Chloe is still a growing puppy it may take less time, 6-8 weeks.

On Nov 9, 2018, I adopted a 6-month-old puppy named Chloe from the pound AKA Jackson Co. Animal Services. She had a limp on her front right leg, and I was told it's just growing pains. When I got Chloe to my vet as soon as I could a month later, I had them check out her leg since it was getting worse. The pound was wrong. Chloe isn't dealing with growing pains, but Ununited Anconeal Process (UAP fracture). This is one of four types of elbow dysplasia. She needs surgery that costs $3,400 to $3,600.
The pound wasted last month with first offering me to bring Chloe back and pick another puppy/dog. This is a death sentence to Chloe and I found it very insulting. I took it as there's a problem with your kid, bring the kid back and we'll put her down, and you can pick a new kid for free. Then they said they'll have the vet clinic they contract with to do the surgery. This took 3 long weeks to find out once everyone was on board, the pound's vet wouldn't do the surgery once he finally saw the x-ray and said it must be done at the specialist. At first, the pound refused to pay anything towards the 3400 to 3600 for the specialist, but I was able to get them to commit a measly $500 towards the specialist.
Under my vet's recommendations, Chloe is restricted from all exercise. She's in a crate (48" long) at all times unless on a leash to go out to do her business. She's also on 100mg Carprovet (pain pill, $1.50 per pill). She and I hate this. This is no life for a growing puppy to be locked up 24/7. The sooner the funds can be raised, the sooner she can get the surgery she needs.

I'm going through a charity call Free Animal Doctor. All money raised goes straight to the specialty center who will do the surgery. With a goal of $3,000 in 38 days, about $80 a day must be raised to reach this goal.

popeye! posted a post in a topic,Flushing!
So here's a topic that's somewhat foreign to people now alot of people think about flushing typically from a synthetic nutrient sense. When you have salt build up you flush the salts from the nutrients out of the growing medium to prevent nutrient lock out issues! Typically this consists of flushing large amounts of water through your containers allowing sufficient run off. While doing this you are leaving out the salt, now while this is a practice that should absolutely be implemented in any bottled nutrient growing regimen this is not necessary in a living organic soil environment.
The reason Flushing is not Necessary in Living organic soil is because there is no salt build up from bottled nutrients. When you're doing living organic soil your roots are communicating with microorganisms in the soil and fungi to sequester water and nutrients for the plant. The microorganisms respond to the communication from the root exudates and deliver the food the plant needs in a plant available form after it has been processed by the microorganisms. The fungi also help with transportation of nutrients and water for the plant roots to help with overall plant health.
When everything is in balance you will have a beautiful soil food web with all kinds of life including soil predators, worms, fungi, and depending on where you live you could have a variety of different soil life. This balance of life and death within the soil and decomposition layer will provide your plants with everything they need!
The plant also signals when it is nearing the end of its life and even without flushing the plants will naturally fade out by themselves because of that communication between the roots and microorganisms in the soil. Also if you did flush your plants you would be washing away some of the microorganisms your trying to help thrive and survive, usually you want as minimal runoff as possible when watering living organic soil containers.
popeye! posted a post in a topic,Here's the other Oregon Pines phenos this one is Oregon Afgani dominant which is great I got a Pakistani expression and a afgani expression which was exactly what I was hoping for from this line! This pheno shows off the more Afgani type bud structure and smells. These were found out of only 5 seeds with 100% germination rates and now we're just about to the end of the road and harvest is super close now!
popeye! posted a post in a topic,Alright Tea Time!
This one is a crucial tea in doing living organic soil with success and is one of the first teas you should do after you mix up your soil and plant your plants!
The tea I'm talking about is a neem and kelp tea very simple tea just like the alfalfa tea your gonna want
Per 5 gallons of water
1 cup neem meal
1/4 cup kelp meal
Aerated for 10-12 hours
Apply as is no need for dilution
Also, this tea is great for both veg and flower cycles
I apply this tea once a week for best results
Neem meal is a key roll in a well balanced living organic soil and applying the teas will help with control of aphids and gnats as well as help provide some nutrients for the plants. This tea should be utilized to help maintain a healthy balance in the soil food web so nothing can get out of control.
The kelp we have covered plenty about its uses and it's rolled in the garden but the main part of this tea is the neem meal!
Another thing I have noticed when brewing this tea is you can tell when it's ready by smell and that's kinda hard to explain but early in the brew there isn't a lot of smell and then when the brew is getting close to ready you can start to smell the neem meal a lot more but it's a really good smell.
The Topic of Neem will be a discussion in itself for a future post but trust me it's coming because I would love to share the importance of the neem tree with all of you!
