    If you wanna grow free start a leaf pile and collect the leafmold in a year or 2 and use in place of peat. Start a worm bin its beyond easy and start a compst pile. Learn about nutrient accumulators and use them in your compost. Youll be on your way to free weed. Btw charcoal the same size as perlite seems to work pretty good so far as a aeration ammendment as does seashells.

      I did that for 2 years straight. Started a compost pile, put dead leaves, lawn clippings, and any vegetable food waste onto the pile. Even bought some of that "compost starter" in a bag for it. Spent hours working it over, getting it where i wanted it to be.

      Then about 3 months before I would have started using it, my father started in with his shit. Had to walk away from him, the grow, and my compost.

          Hey pin down the hatches and stay safe folks

            I've wanted to grow outside...and think I may have found a couple prime spots.. but was wondering on a good mix...

            My easy way out thinking was to just plant them in either 5gal buckets or maybe 7 gal pots (prob smart pot) and leave them above ground, or dig a hole and put buckets or SP in the hole... that way they have proper root enviro, just trying to figure out a way to feed them without having to constantly visit site.
            Granted my prime locale I visit bi-weekly anyway, so I don't forsee a problem feeding them, but would prefer a nute mix that I can incorporate either into mix or top dressing and just water... any thoughts?

                7 gal smartpots with the mix i mentioned and putting them out now they should have enough to keep them fine till harvest. You could even veg a week or 2 inside in the pots before you put them out and youll yield a whole lot better.

                    I think it was called lcs mix origionally. Its 50% canadian sphagnum peat 25% areration (perlite,rice hulls etc.) 25 % worm castings. You can use 33% of each if you want more aeration. Then add 2 tablespoons per gallon of mix of bone meal and lime. And 1 tablespoon per gallon of mix of blood meal or fish meal and kelp meal. Thats all thats needed. You can play with different nitrogen and phosphorus sources if you want but keep the kelp in. I use azomite too. Moisten and let sit a month and it wont burn them and coons wont try to dig in amymore. You could use high n and p guanos or alfalfa and fish bone meal. Just stick to those ratios and your good.

                      Microbeman and Dank Frank also have the soil mix they use listed, just search their name.

                        Ok cool!

                        Thanks fellas...much appreciated. If I DO decide to a outdoor plant, I may stick to just watering and feeding by visiting location, if i decide too...

                        For NOW, but I would like to make a mix that I can just water.... damn, I wish I still REv's mix still... damn...whatever happened to REv?

                        P-Nut... 2Tbsp of lime per gallon? That seems a bit high... but it has been awhile since I've used lime...

                          when i first started mixing my own soil i don't remember which recipe i followed i wanna say 3lb, or maybe might have been lc's. but basically it was equal parts compost and topsoil, 25% perlite 10-15% sand and then your amendments. lime bone, blood, or guanos etc. i never mixed a soil to feed plants all the way through i mostly just use it as a substrate. like i said never grown in ground just pots. and i never use pots that would hold enough mix of a water only soil to last me through a grow. basically organish and feed with whatever kinda bottle organic or salt nutes in small pots.


                          but as far as substrate is concerned can't beat that mix, and those other mixes stickied in the organic forum.

                              If your going to veg for a week or 2 that mix will be fine water only till harvest in a 5 gal or bigger pot. In or outside. And thats never been too much lime for me. My current mixes are a bit more complex with neem cake and crustacean meal and assorted rock dusts and alfalfa but a basic cheap mix works just fine and is alot easier to mix. Hell before i went no till i went through a few hundred gallons per run and made beds outdoors using it without reamending and had no prob making it through winter runs.
