Starting and maintaining a Living Organic Soil set up!
Hey guys how's it going I decided to start a new thread because this year I'm changing things up! Last year I planted in pots and my root space was restricted so this year I'm digging out my garden space which is 6x6 and I'm gonna be digging it 1 foot deep. Today I got some progress made so here's a look at today's progress! Getting started!

My puppy, Chloe, fundraiser
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.
 
 

 
If you would like to donate to help Chloe get her much needed surgery, please click on the link below or a picture.
 
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.

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.

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!

Here are a few updates for ya guys this is the Jurassic pheno of Oregon pines she's coming down next Sunday! 

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!

The 3 largest got moved to 17g tubs, moved the other 2 in 5g to the same area.  Now under a pair of Lush Dominator 2x.  Some cuttings also taken, dipped in Clonex and put into RR cubes under a dome to root.

Alright time to talk about Compost Teas!
 
So first we will start out with my personal method of brewing a good quality compost tea. 
 
I use a 720 GPH (gallons per hour) air pump, getting good amount of air in your compost tea is important to multiplying microbial populations without causing a anerobic environment!
 
6 inch round airstone placed in the bottom of the bottom and cleaned after every tea!
 
5 gallon bucket of water with no chlorine or chlorimites so do not use city water this is important you want to use either distilled water, well water without chlorine or spring water to have the best compost tea, chlorine's in water will kill the microbial life you are trying to grow in your compost tea and we want that microbial life to live and thrive! 
 
I use a mesh produce bag easily found at any Fred Myers for only a few dollars works great and it's cheap!
 
Ok down to the recipe now that you know what all you need to get started!
 
I used 5 gallons of non chlorinated water
2 Cups of high quality compost or worm castings or 1 cup of each 
1/4-1/2 cup of molasses I usually use 1/3 cup molasses and you want to use black strap molasses because you want unsulphered molasses with no preservatives in it!
And then simply brew for 24-36 hours 
 
I then dilute at 4:1 or 3:1 (4 parts water to 1 part compost tea) I like to add my compost tea first then add water so if you use a resivour then add your finished compost tea at the dilution rate recommended and then fill with water so it all mixes together nicely! If you have a small garden like myself you can use a 2 gallon sprayer you can find at any big store with a garden section. In the sprayer I add the compost tea then add the water and shake it a little bit before applying! 
 
Pictured below is a proper example of a finished compost tea at 36 hours brew time! You can see the beautiful color in the tea and it doesn't smell bad at all! 
 
Next I'll cover some basic benifits of using compost teas but for more information on compost teas check out http://www.microbeorganics.com
 
 
When brewing a compost tea basically what your doing is massively multiplying microbes found in quality compost or worm castings! The molasses works as a food source for the microbial life increasing the population rapidly! 
When growing organically the microbial life is your friend and you want healthy populations in your soil to help break down organic nutrients/ matter in the soil and make it plant available as well as aiding the cycle of life in the soil food web! Compost teas can also help with fungal life in your soils which is great for helping with water retention and overall plant and soil health! 
 
I usually apply this tea once a week or once every 2 weeks 
 
Thanks for reading hope this perks some people's Interest and if it does definitely check out the microbes organics page. Let me know if you have any questions?

The Jurassic pheno is gorgeous definitely gonna have to dig through more of these beans! 

Post in TW lazy grow journal, lol multiple strains!
So, for the buckets, I am doing (till transplant some of them to larger ones) and have done start to end, just basic anywhere 5g bucket with a lid, small basket to hold the plant within the lid, airstone in the bottom, then water with some basic nutes
if you don't have temperature problems it's way easy and simple, plus low maintenance
NOTE; extra air should not hurt anything, especially if keep bubbles small (factor of the airstone and pressure applied), but not enough air in the medium is a bad thing. that can cause things to rot

The hell's angel was looking so great this morning after it got topdressed with compost last night and watered! Then tonight all the plants got a top dress of neem, kelp and crustacean meal and some crushed malted barley as well! Then covered everything up with more barley straw to get the decomposition layer started this is where things really start to take off!
