Hello all.... I have just started to underway myself in my own outdoor grow. I have a house that is in the redwoods close to the beach. I am looking for any advice on the growing process. I am planning on disclosing every forward step on this thread pre going through with it, if you have a better idea on how to go about a certain step, it would be greatly appreciated to post your advice!!
First of all my location gets about 9 to 10 hours of sun light through the appropriate months to grow. I am plannning on digging four one ft deep beds with chicken wire lining the bottom of them to keep out ground predators. Each bed of two, will be about six feet long- so 4x6 (this is not exact I might do 3x6 and have 3 or so, I am trying to fit 20 in a fairly decent area it just needs to be done right.) Right now under plastic I have started to compost one year old sheep manure mixed with 1/2 of fresh chicken maunre to sheep manure and 1/4 of worm casing to sheep manure. That will sit for about 3 months and I will then layer the bottom of the beds with it, about a foot or a little less deep- just to keep the roots nice and warm in the cold temp, and cus I think it should help it to grow some monsters? Once I do this I will layer the other three feet with Organic Soil mix (FoxFarm.) At this point I am going to buy teens so they will be nice and tall. I will probably put them under my own lights for two weeks with a steady fan on them and just a good ventilation system to get them even stronger for my conditions. Then it is off to soiling them; and from there on I cannot say what way they will go unfortunately, but as of now everything I have entered should go according to plan..... I hope!
