There's blue dream, strawberry sour diesel, and blueberry headband here.....try to guess which is which. I know the last pic in the row is strawberry Sour deez; check out the baby seeds growing. Crossed this plant with a KOS candyman haze male; sure to be an interesting result.

    The BC god bud is still finishing in week 11; maybe just a bit longer but I'm getting impatient. Last time I took it to week 12 so should be ready very soon. This plant was accidentally revegged in mid flower during the great timer fiasco of 2017 which over-vegged the F out of her. Now she is a 6 headed hydra that is taking up valuable grow space with her swollen colas dipping towards the floor while my veg tent is bursting at the seams with so many plants stacked up ready for bloom phase. Can't really get all of her majesty into a single frame she's so large. Gotta get her outta there soon but she's still ripening. I know she's droopy because she was thirsty; need to water her almost daily. IMG_4621.JPG IMG_4622.JPG IMG_4623.JPG IMG_4624.JPG IMG_4625.JPG

    Found out why my last plant was not up to par; it got seeded, Buds from my recently jarred blue dream plant are sorta loose and leafy; even buds that have no seed. This is due in part to the great timer fiasco of 2017 which will go down in history as one of the most devastating events to ever hit my flower area. The rest is due to underestimating the unbridled power of nature:
    Apparently some of the pollen that was dusted on a few targeted branches has also spread to the far corners of the bloom room. Shout out to my oscillating fan btw for spreading all the love. Horny little Devils impregnated the plants I didn't really want beans on but oh well; got mad beans.
    The deep green plants listed in the pics in above posts (all except the god bud plant) were done using no till methods. I usually build my pots with a high N layer but since the last few plants I harvested stayed green all the way to the end I decided to keep the magic of the soil food web going for another full cycle. All I did was pull off the old root stem, formed a little hole for the new root ball to fit into, sprinkled myco, and placed the new plant right on top of the old root ball. Filled it in with a mixture of recycled soil, fresh EWC, & some kelp meal and mulched with straw. Finally I pushed in 2 jobes AP organic spikes 180 deg from each other towards the outside rim if each smartpot. I am impressed with the results so far and will do it again this way when I get it right. Peace

    Thank you sir! You are appreciated as well my friend. I try to report on both the ups and the downs so those paying attention might learn something from them. For the ups it appears I have 2 plants ready for harvest, a BD and the god bud. On the downside the BC god bud is incredibly airy and leafy. Some of the other plants also affected by the aforementioned time fiasco were the same and I thought maybe I picked them a bit in the early side. The blueberry headband was absolutely perfect smoke as usual at 9+ weeks yet the buds were a bit too leafy. Let the blue dream go to 10+ weeks and the smoke was tasty but mediocre with super airy buds that looked bigger than they were. At least the god bud is the last plant affected by the great timer fiasco and the BD is the first unaffected so here marks the place where we turn a new chapter. The perpetual rolls on...

    The BCGB has now gone 13+ weeks and has cloudy to amber trichs yet still has many white pistils; Im getting desperate and think I'm just gonna take her down this week and put her out of misery. Was hoping she would firm up a bit more but looks like it will be some fluffy-ass bud.

    There is also a BD ready to pick very soon which is among if not the last BD clones left in the garden. Those buds in the bottom pics feel rock solid...so that's good:hump:

    Thanks everyone for all the warm comments. Here's what I just trimmed up for hanging; it's a strawberry sour diesel that's been crossed with candyman haze; she's so full of seeds they are literally pushing out. Should be interesting to see how this turns out; it'll be awhile before I know if I got a winner or meh. I love this strain so much and it's the last clone I had so I'm glad I could keep these genetics going in my garden somehow. Yes and I know the leaves show minor thrip damage; leaves never seem to recover once affected by them. A spritz of Monterey garden spray killed em but damage remains evident.

    You don't need all that just use whatever soil you have or get some FFOF soil. You do not have to use super soil or coots mix. Just get any old organic soil you can and amend it after your first harvest. TLO is not as complex as it seems it's really easy actually. Just need to know what to add in when you amend the soil that's all. If you just add vermicompost you are halfway there already...

    tbh i think whats messed with my perception is theres gjys who add like u said worm castings compost and grow as healthy plants as one could then theres the dudes who nerd out in every single aspect of it but thay get the best results iv seen so far tbh but im talking like 10 years of learning basicly whatever one could im about to give coco a try found some one part nutes and so far im 99 percent sure there safe for the mycrobes im all for tlo but ye thay add tricoderma to the coco plust thay seem to have addatives tjat are organic like a humic fulvic and 2 that are sea related im gunna gove coco a go while my mix braeks down pluss i can gain more knoledge reading tne plants ect

    I started out doing hydro and it definitely helped me understand what ph is and how to "read" plants. Coco is not an organic medium ebut it's safe to add coir to organic soil. I use it to cut down my mix when it gets compacted along with extra perlite. Coco is a great medium for holding onto whatever nutes you want to use.
    Some peeps get nerd rage when you dont follow methods to a T but organic growing does not actually have to follow any formula. You can tailor your grow based on what you have on hand or have access to. It helps to have some experience before diving into organics because all this can be overwhelming. Honestly though once you get an established and active growing mix it is so easy; just water your plants. That's pretty much it.

    The last of the blueberry headband clones has been harvested and was hanging to dry since Friday. Took no pics as it's not a very impressive plant anyway plus it's really seeded out. All these seeded plants yielded way less than normal but at least I'll have beans for years to come. No more boys in the garden. From here they get killed as soon as they show balls from here on out. I still have a TGA strain, Brians Berry Cough, that I would like to collect pollen from but I think I'll just keep it in the freezer. No more beans in the garden for awhile.
    Popped off 5 TGA BBC beans back in August and then lost one seedling soonafter; guess I forgot to water ithat one and found it all shriveled up one day so we are down to four. Gonna flip all these next week and see what's what.
    The KOS candyman haze is next up on deck. 3 sisters starterd flowering the same time but they are at least two different phenotypes. Very different bud structure yet all three have a similar sweet &is fruity aroma, not skunky at all, very cherry. Today is about day 60; trying to give them another week for a rock hard density.

    Finish trimming the last of the Emerald Triangle blueberry headband. Only a few scattered beans on this one but seed production has seriously diminished yields compared to previous runs. Oh well at least we got beans to pop for year; there will be no more boys releasing pollen in the garden for quite some time. What a mess!
    Next up is KOS Candyman haze; all 3 sisters are ready to pull. Nice tight rock hard nuggets on these; 2 out of 3 have so many seeds it's ridiculous but one plant has none I can see. It has slightly bigger buds than the other 2 which leads me to believe it never went to seed production. Fingers crossed...

    I had a Durban Poison male last year release pollen in my brand new grow room. The first run had mad beans in all the buds. Fucked me good. The second run had less...and so on and so on. I’ve harvested several times since then......

    In hind sight I should have hosed down the room.

    I was trying to be so careful yet still seeded the fuck outta everything. It's all good though. Got some interesting crosses out of it. Next set of plants after these CMH's should be seed free.

    Next up is a blue dream I think or maybe it's blueberry headband. No idea because I forgot to mark them & it seems like so long ago. Smells like skunky blueberries so it's gotta be one or the other. I know I should give this plant another week or 2 but wtf I need weed. The seeded plants yielded so little I am still catching up. Looks like this plant has more than a few beans on it; so much for sensimillia.
    So far I've only got 2 of my SSD x CMH seeds to pop off out of 10. Hope I didn't pick em too early.

    Hey thanx for droppin by! I started this thread because I do things a little differently than alotta growers around here and wanted to show how easy it can be to grow in living soil.
    So I got 1 single female out of 5 TGA Brian's Berry Cough seeds. One seedling died after a couple weeks because I forgot to water it so that left 4 and then 3 of those were boys. Killed them all with extreme malice and without a shred of remorse and then fed them to the worms. I cloned the hell out of the female and reset the timer to 18/6 so she gets bigger. Gonna re-veg her for another few weeks.
    I currently have 9 seedlings started and 4 are doubles because I thought the first set wasn't going to germ. They all sprouted right after dropping another bean in the same hole so now I gotta veg em until they get mature enough to sex out. So it turns out the SSD x CMH were fine they just took their sweetass time popping off. The other 5 seedlings are KOS candyman haze x themselves. At least there are no more seeded plants in the garden nor will there be anytime soon. All girls all the time...stay tuned
