So been talking, dreaming and preparing for this season in the Southern hemisphere. I chose this spot as it its close to home, has good access to water and protected by large trees and bush. It took about 2 days just to cut out all this bush and make a space. But here it is. All of these are started out from seeds, mostly regular and a couple feminized. I will document and post some updates of what turns out tops. But some notable strains here are Sour Mango Gelato and Black Poison from greensmokeroomseeds.com , Lemon Haze, Early Durban, DPx ( Durban cross ).
I only use organic supplements, which generally means what I have available. Glad to say the only things I have used outside of my small world are used/upcycled tyres. My basic principle is “least amount of effort”.
The soil layers:
About knee deep a homemade compost mix ( inc chicken, goat, donkey, horse and pig manure. )
Layer of forest mulch ( includes pine needles )
layer of donkey manure as a mulch
Dandylion and weed tea watering
Cal/Mag supplement weekly using eggshells and epsom salts.
Well this is the start and loads more to come. Any suggestions, ideas, questions welcome. Backyard growing at its well, finest.
