Are you interested in growing organically??
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!

Bud in the first pic was 118g trimmed, wet, guess the dry weight? (TBD)
 

 

 

 

 

These two flocks are slowly merging into one. The teens can get closer to the hens and eat for a bit longer before being chased off if at all. It depends on the hen and her mood. Sometime both flocks are complete merged before they relies it. Normally the teens run off then come back.
 
 
Just some teens enjoying some puddles during a hot day
 

 

 
The new chicks. If you look at the checks you can tell the difference.
 

 

 

 

 

 
Nut Nibbler now not fearful from last night storm has noticed the new chicks
 

 

 
 
Since it's a colder wet day, my flock got some oatmeal.
 

 

 

 
Golden Nugget tried to steal the teen's bowl, but I moved it and made sure she and the bully (barred rock) didn't steal it. Lucky Pecker and Road runner are upstairs working on their egg for the day, so I gave them some. Don't want them to miss out

Arbuscular Mycorrhiza and Growth Responses of Several Ornamental Plants Grown in Soilless Peat-based Medium Amended with Coconut Dust (Coir)
Coconut fiber dust (coir) is being used as a peat substitute or amendment to potting mixes with varied results. However, its microbial composition and compatibility with beneficial microbes that might be added to growth media in the nursery, such as mycorrhizal fungi, has not been determined. In this study, coir was amended to a peat-based medium (15%, 30%, 45%, and 60% by volume) to determine its effects on growth of several ornamental plants and on the formation and function of the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Glomus intraradices.

Pest: Crickets
 
(family Gryllidae)
 
 
 
 
Warning:
 
Crickets have relatively powerful jaws, and several species have been known to bite humans. Although they can bite, it is rare for a cricket’s mouthparts to actually puncture the skin. Crickets do carry a significant number of diseases which, although having the ability to cause painful sores, are not fatal to humans. These numerous diseases can be spread through their bite, physical contact or their feces.
 
 
 
Special Species Notes
 
Cricket is derived from “creket” in Middle English which was originally came from “crequet” in Old French. It’s thought to be onomatopoeic, which means that the name resembles the sound by these animals. A group of crickets is called an orchestra.
 
Crickets are one of the most common insects. They break down cellulose-rich plant materials into feces that are easily digested by bacteria and fungi, enhancing energy and nutrient flows in the ecosystem. They also consume the seeds of many weed species.

Post in TW lazy grow journal, lol multiple strains!
Did some rearranging today, made new tubs to replace the 5g buckets I was using.  The new tubs are 17g each, I cut holes in the tops so I could just move the existing lids from the 5g buckets and place on top, I drilled 2 sets of 2 holes in each of them and then secured into the new lids so they would not move.  I also cut U shaped cutouts on one end of the new lids (with a pair of holes to attach pipe cleaner handles to easily open them so I can now look inside and add nutes (just pumping to fill them from an external 5g bucket).  Used B/W panda plastic to cover the yellow lids to make sure to block the lights, new setup looks pretty clean, imo.
 
Also switched to 12/12 and changed lighting from pair of Herbal Vador 2x to a pair of Dominator 2X.

Post in New chicks,...... and a frustrated cat
The chicks had their second outing today. This time they couldn't wait for the door to open.
 
 

 

 

 

 
There was a lot of flying, running around and pecking at the ground. Some of the hens gathered to watch.Butterball flew from the carrier to my knee.
 

 

 
They stayed out about fifteen minutes longer then last time. The scariest thing to them was a military jet flying around. The first time it went over head, the chicks scattered, I called them back. You'd be amazed after roughly 30 years of raisin chickens how I can sound like a hen. After that anytime the jet was overhead the chicks ran to be under me...will my legs
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
My dog got some sun bathing in
 

 

 

 
I put the chicks in the carrier and opened the garden are. The hen know that the chicks haven't learned to scratch the ground much, so they went straight for the areas I dug. Some of the chicks went to the back of the carrier once they relied how much bigger the hens were.
 

 
Once back in their tub, the chicks got a drink and some food then they all cuddled up to each other and took a nice long nap.

Training has started
