Jraven's Alaska Summer 2019

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

Hey friends and fellow growers it's time for another season here.
I'm in the temperate [cool] rainforest on the coast of southeast Alaska at 56N latitude. I'm a commercial fisherman, salmon trolling. and with that and the grow going on at the same time things get interesting! Our summers can be ok or not so good you never know but this spring at any rate seems to be progressing well so I'm inclined to start a little earlier than usual:smoking:
Here's most of the lineup for this year
ALF [HASHTAG]#5[/HASHTAG] and ALF#5 x Asian Haze CBD from @FullDuplex and Mandalorian
Bubba Trouble and the freebies that came with from @Magic which I don't know what it is yet but have confidence it will be good:biggrin:
Brooklyn Sunrise from DP leftover from last year
From Mephisto I have Samsquanch x HBSS and AvT and maybe 24Carat
And from Hybrids from Hell in Denmark I have LEB 27 and Monk, two photoperiod strains that are reputed to finish at higher latitudes. These were recommended by our friend @puffy. These will be outdoor grown when the autos start to take over the greenhouse.
I have some other seeds if it looks like there is room.
Here's my little greenhouse.

This is Store Cat in her usual position she's a good pal.

Here's the sunroom, the houseplants will get moved around to make way for the cannabis and then it will be filled with tomatoes after the plants go to the greenhouse @June 1st. By the way the sunroom is a wonderful thing...you all need one :smoking: :thumbsup:


The seedling cabinet over the stairway. two cobs from @BigSm0 and a fan and a little T5 flourescent.

I did a final mix of my soil...added a microbe tea with some biochar not a lot just wanted to add a little life to it. 120 gallons. I already have seedling soil about ready to roll so not much stopping us now.

Nice nice friend I'm excited!!!! I use those totes to grow an modify the bottoms for worms to enter there awesome I also was thinking of using the lid an cutting a hole in it an letting the plant grow out of it a way to keep the soil moist on a hot day an conserve water but also to protect vital microbes something to I'm curious to how well it would work .
