    That's some nice looking soil there, thanks for sharing. I'm a hydro guy myself, and had to chime in, for those who are not physically able to mix quality homemade soil. There are wonderful, certified organic nutrients out there in liquid form, at a pretty good price. They will work in any medium. and promote growth of micro flora and fauna. But keep in mind if you're a hydro fan, use a quality semi-solid inline pump. And keep an eye on your sprayers and drips if you use those(as organic nutrients tend to be larger particles than the lab stuff). Peace love and happy growing IOAP

    Tonight I'll talk about my preference's for organic IPM (integrated pest management) I do a normal IPM as a preventative measure and I feel everyone should do some kinda preventative maintenance on plants! For small gardens with 4-6 plants You can use a 1 litre spray bottle I prefer industrial style they usually last a bit longer then the cheap ones and have better pressure! I spend about 3-5$ So still pretty cheap Mix into warm water spray bottle 1 Teaspoon of Neem oil or Karanja oil (Ahimsa preferably) Or 1/2 teaspoon neem oil 1/2 teaspoon karanja oil 1 Teaspoon of lavender or peppermint broners soap as a surfactant! Shake well for 15-30 seconds Then apply to plants with lights off For 6 plants or more I would recommend using a 1 gallon sprayer you can get one from Walmart or home Depot Even the Scott's ones at Fred Meyers work good! Mix into 1 gallon of warm water 1 Tablespoon Neem oil or Karanja oil 2 Teaspoons neem 1 Teaspoon karanja or vise versa 1 Tablespoon broners lavender or peppermint Shake well for 20-30 seconds Then apply to plants with lights off! Addition notes! You can add some silica if you would like at 1/3 teaspoon for 1 litre or 1 Teaspoon for 1 gallon Also make sure to apply to both the underside as well as the top of the leaves! If indoor allow sufficient airflow to make sure it dry's up before the lights come back on! I repeat this spray every 72 hours

    New chicks,...... and a frustrated cat

    I'm not sure how she got flipped on her back in that spot. Being on her back, she was stuck and heat stoke got her. I've never lost a hen to the heat before this. I'm thinking of looking for a rescue cuckoo maran, or get some chicks in the fall or following spring. A quick update on Road Runner. I took her to the vet yesterday. There was 1 cat and there was many dogs in the waiting room. Road Runner was quiet for most of the waiting least until a little dog started coughing next to us. Road Runner started clucking loudly. It wasn't long after that the she was called between my hens clucks to go into a room. Normally, your pet has to stay quiet in the waiting room, or you go to the outside waiting area. I was right that she was starting to develop bumblefoot. The vet said I caught this very early and she doesn't require surgery. Just some pills (Baytril) for 3 weeks. Will 1/2 a pill, Road Runner is 3.5lbs. For info on this medacation, https://poultrykeeper.com/poultry-medication/baytril-used-to-treat-respiratory-problems/ The vet said the treatment I was doing was slowing the progression of the bubblefoot, it's helping her and continue, it should speed up the healing process. If Road Runner starts laying eggs while on these meds, I was warned they may get into the egg and some people react badly to it. I've been working on the new coop. The hens come and look around and talk to me. They mostly seem to like what they see, but I get the feeling with that complaining type chickens sounds, they want some stuff added like, nest boxes and some where to roost for the night. This Coop is 5x8. It sits a foot off of the ground, so the hens can easily get under there and eat any spider or bugs they can find, plus if they lay an egg under there, it'll be easier for me to get it. I have 2 walls done. The other 2 have been insulated, some blocks are up. I was forced to take a break cause of the smokey heat. After the blocking is done then plywood will be added. Then the nice features I think some of my hens are demanding can be installed. I've been taking pictures throughout the building process. The roof isn't done for good reason. Last Sunday we were starting to put the roof on when a thunder storm hit. I looked up into the sky above us and saw 3-4 different lightening strikes at the same time. If we weren't trying to finish this coop, we'd be enjoying the show vs flipping it off. That was the day my son was to go back, so between the storms we made an ugly patch job. When my son returns, We'll finish the roof correctly. All hinges and hooks are on, and all but 1 latch have been installed. The auto chicken door is installed. It is quiet. I added a light sensor to it.

    New chicks,...... and a frustrated cat

    Now that you've had a few days to think about this, have you any idea what happened?
  13. popeye!

    Starting my grow again!

    I like to show my mistakes cuz I'm not a perfect grower my gut told me to transplant these days sooner then I did and I tried to push it and this is what Happens, chances are if I would have listened to my gut in the first place could of avoided all of this!
  14. popeye!

    Starting my grow again!

    Alright so here's the recipe I go by this was originally developed by Clackamas coots and slightly modified by Terranova Los a good friend of mine! Notill mix 1/3 candadium spagnum peat moss 1/3 pumic 1/3 compost(half compost half worm castings) 1/2 cup per cu ft neem seed meal 1/2 cup per cu ft kelp meal 1/2 cup cu ft crab meal 2 cups per cu ft basalt Rock dust 1 cup per cu ft oyster shell flower 1 cup per cu ft gypsum It's a simple recipe just follow this and you will be on the right path! I definitely recommend either making your own compost and worm castings or source it locally. Try to refrain from buying bagged stuff from grow stores for a few reasons one being the inflated price and 2 the overall quality bagged compost and worm castings are of much lower quality then ones you can make yourself or source from local soil builders but not big commercial companies! Ground up soil builders in Scio, Oregon makes some good quality compost and castings and is where I sourced mine from! There's also a really good place in Camas Washington if your in the Portland area!

    Starting my grow again!

    Just wanted to show what can happen when you leave a plant in a small pot for to long in the heat it causes major stress to the plant and the root system and planted it in new soil and a bigger pot 2 days ago so I'm expecting to see it turn around and start doing Alot better within the next few days! Just wanted to show you how easy a mistake can happen and we all make them! Stay humble guys!

    We'd love to see the recipe. Please share it when you are able.

    Starting my grow again!

    They get some neem and peppermint broners tonight for my normal IPM regimen every 72 hours! I think when using organic IPM (integrated pest management) it's important to keep a consistent routine for IPMs and not to get lazy about it! I use siimply 1 tsp Ahimsa neem oil from buildasoil.com and 1 tsp of broners lavender or peppermint mixed together in warm water with a 1 litre sprayer and then applied to the plants after dark! Never apply neem during the day? If you have more plants u can use 1 TBS of neem and 1 TBS of broners per gallon sometimes I do like to add some silica every now and then as well I use the buildasoil.com Agsil silica works great!

    Some more angles of the hell's angel OG today love this strain she really is some.potent medicine!
  22. Hey guys I'm starting this thread as a place for those interested in learning about how they can start growing organically and get away from bottled nutrient! Increasing you health, potency flavor and reducing the amount of money on inputs for the garden. I have been thankful to be friends with some very knowledgeable people and have gained a good amount of knowledge from them as well as learned how to apply it myself! So my goal is to help others on the path to organics and towards better health for you! I believe in living organic soil and working with microorganisms to help break down organic matter and make it into plant available nutrients this way you are not measuring Nutrients and checking PH or PPMs! Utilizing the proper soil mix ratio as well as good quality soil ingredients will ensure you get started the right way. I do have a recipe I would like to share, this recipe is from a good friend of mine that taught me Alot of what I know about living organic soil and still helps me to this day! Even helped with my most recent batch of soil which came out great! So I'll get this started with this introduction post and then within the next day or two I will put up a soil mix recipe as well! And then we will get going from there! Here's my Hell's angel OG in the new soil mix I made up! Just a example of the health were looking for in our plants and this is just the start!
