    Hey everyone from the AFN and to my Good friend Gtg. Going to be Growing No-Till using @Mountainorganics new soil Recipe of Peat moss, Malibu‘s bio dramatic compost, Pumice, perlite, Microfine Basalt, Bio Char, Ewc and garden lime to buffer PH.

    I’m currently running 5 regs from @mofoseeds Strain Maya, 5 reg Dragons Blood hash plant that’s a bleeder from Bohdi seeds, a Red Dragon fem from Barneys farm, Colorado cookies auto from Dutch passion, a Gorilla glue fem from RQS and a Brooklyn sunrise auto from DP.

    I’ll be running in a 4x8 using an HLG 550 V2 and HLG V1 and will be adding 4 HLG Elite 96’s hopefully before I flip to bloom.

    This is the Maya [​IMG] Red Dragon [​IMG] Dragons Blood [​IMG] Gorilla glue[​IMG] Colorado cookies[​IMG][​IMG] today I’ll Be adding these fresh earthworm castings[​IMG] with nettles, horsetail, yarrow, neem leaf and comfrey as a mulch layer after I cut some of the cover crops to mulch with.

    This is day 16 for the 30’s and day 12 for the red dragon and day 13 for the cookies and GG.

    I do IPMs every 5 to 7 days with hand crafted botanicals.

    This will be a before picture until I add the ewc and the accumulators and water in. they will only be feed plain tap water except when I do my IPM foiler sprays.

    Happy Growing!

    Wow @Robbie714... Thats looking real good...
    Really looking organic my friend you got that no till going on. There's a lot of cover crops it look really well.
    So what exactly is the cover crop for when you're running no till?
    There's not a whole lot of guys on here running organic like this there's a few. I think @TheMongol is running a no-till garden right now.
    I think I was just reading about his no till just the other day.
    Looks really good Robbie I'll be watching for sure learn a little bit about this No till stuff.
    I may not be fully organic but I'm 92% LOL... nice job. Oh yeah those lights look pretty good to man didn't you make those ?
    I don't think I've seen them yet.
    How much area do those cover and how much do they cost you to build and run them? Robbie

    Thanks for stopping by Gtg

    the cover crops add nitrogen and aeration to the soil. actually I just covered a lot of the cover crop on the Dragons blood with the ewc and nettles, yarrow, neem leaf, comfrey, horsetail which is a source of silica and kelp meal and watered in.

    my lights I’ve been running the QBs for about 2 years now the 550’s are already built just plug and play. one of the drivers went on my first 550 and it was still under warranty so he shipped me a new light but when I received it there was 30 out of 1052 Samsung diodes that were a little dim so then he sent me the new HLG 550 V2 and didn’t ask for my old lights back after I offered to ship them back

    Anyway I paid $650 for my first 550 then he sent me two more which are in the picture above so actually I got two lights for free they go for $1000 a pop but I think they’re on sale for $900. I know the one owner of HLG so he really hooked me up big time. I also got him a lot of business to Gtg. but yeah I haven’t had a Journal for a minute so we’ll see how everything goes Buddy

    Yeah it's still illegal here too thank God I don't follow no laws illegals where it's at for me been illegal since I was 12 I can't remember when I did anything legal LOL. Kind of funny you said that yesterday the cannabis Growers Association or some acronym like that?? I forget what it is seen it on the news last night though.
    They're suing the state of Michigan because cannabis is still a schedule 1 narcotic in this state even though we've gone completely recreational now.
    I didn't know that Michigan had a schedule 1 narcotic law that's like the feds schedule 1 narcotic law?
