    I am new to organic gardening. I have been a subscriber to Skunk magazine and a fan of The Rev's.
    I have leaned toward his style of growing because he actually understands it and can explain it, vs it
    being a recipe he just copied from someone else. (like I am doing now).

    The 2.1 soil was mixed 2 days ago.
    Gathering all the needed amendments up here in the UP during winter was a complete and utter pain
    in the sack. Much of it was ordered off the internet with shipping costs often being 4x the cost of the actual item.

    1 fuck up this round. Well, one that I am aware of anyway. We switched up unleached bone meal for fish bone meal.
    If that sounds fishy, my bad. I fucked up. In a few weeks we will mix up more and use the correct bone meal.

    Thank You Trichyn9ne for the helping me out. He actually played the roll of concrete mixer and did it in the basement
    on top of that.

    People are big on adding and subtracting to recipes. I don't like to do that. (even though I did with the bone meal). I want
    to keep changing this recipe every time I read an article on organics. I want to roll with The Rev's plan. Teaming with
    microbes will be read next, but this is where and how I am starting my Organic career.

    I do grow in hydro. Bucket system with Advanced Nutrients full line. I am not a fucking tree hugger, I just love pot and want
    the best. I will periodically list the amendments and put why The Rev uses them.

    About 4 weeks and the soil should be "cooked" or "activated" enough to use.
    I just ordered a control wizard ph meter to post levels starting next week.
    I am leaning toward using only 3 gallon pots.
    We mixed a double batch and it's 3/4 of a garbage can worth of soil.
    I am also going to try using blumats to automatically water my plants.

    Are you cooking that indoors bro? If done right, it may smell like you are collecting dead bodies in there :o

    But like they say, stink in stink out ;)

    We mixed it indoors and are cooking it indoors. My garage is below freezing.
    I just did a Chem 4 grow and nobody came by without mentioning the smell.
    That includes strangers at my door as well.

    I had to fed-ex cow manure. The next day it took me most of the day to figure out
    where that smell was coming from. When we added the fish bone meal, I really started
    to question the idea. roflmao. The feather meal was pretty fucked up too.

    If this works good. I will hit up a half dozen stores to carry all the amendments, if they all fail to do so, they will become victims of shitty management and I will then work on opening a real grow store here in the UP.

    There are several in the process of opening right now. I think I can talk almost any of them into making more money.
    If I had time and wanted a job, I would have opened one up in perkins last year. I had too many irons in the fire a few
    dozen irons ago. My biggest focus right now is getting Medicated Acres running smoothly and help Belle get her shit together.
    Then we can move on to everything else. Like runs of Rick Simpson Oil made with only the top colas of these TLO plants.

    Shaymuny what area are you looking at up here?

    Honestly bud i am just sick of all these city-idts around here area not important... i lived in flint for 27 years and that is in itself enough to make anyone wanna seek a new location lol... i moved up in the thumb area to try and find a better place to raise my kids but there is nothing around here... bout the only option for work is factories which give ya the boot before your 90 days are up or fast food lol... seems like everywhere and anywhere ya go is 30 40 minutes away too... i use to have family in the UP that passed away few years back and use to visit em and i loved everything about it up there... that is where i want to raise my kids around good folks in a good area... ive done all kinds of work in my day... jack of all trades master of none type deal lol

    Nice work Glad getting this thread started for people thinking about organic growing. I'll surely be following along to see how this new style of growing compares to the bad ass bucket system you've got!

    kinda was getting that same impression (insert stomach ache)... i been searching various job seking sites with not much luck... but honestly if fast food is what a man has to do to support himself and family im game and would much rather do so around the company of good hearted people then the zoo of flint or surrounding area... greatly appreciate the input tho trich... sorry i been blabbing about stuff that has nothing to do with TLO tho which this thread was intended for...

    Bring your work w you to the U.P., work is possibly even more scarce up there.

    So anyone gonna share this nu secret recipe....?

    It's strange as far as tree-hugging goes, I can see three of 'em out in my yard right now. One is a crazy assed local who always runs away when I approach him, second is a Native American baddass, Johnny Barkwood. And third is a life-sized chicken wire and painted paper mache' dummy of me so people always think I'm at home.

    Lookin' forward to Rev/Glad's new organic revelations.
    shout-out to Rrog who recently opened my eyes much wider.
    all you fuckers are great!!!
