    Nice! Looking good.

    Ever thought about goats for the poison oak?

    Mangoes are also in the toxidendron family with poison oak and sometimes help people get over the reaction. You could try gettin some organic mangoes.
    Juice cannabis and eat salad everyday.

    Food is medicine, medicine is food.

      You have a nice little sunny spot hollowed out there. Does it get sun all day?

        Goats will do the trick I'd imagine, might need alot of fence though. Nice garden and nice spot!!

            Very cool indeed.... I just bought a decent size plot and will be putting up a couple greenhouses when the ground dries up. Did you buy a kit or you building it from raw materials?

              Thanks everyone.
              Highlife45, thanks about the mango tip. if it doesnt work, iots not like it was bad, i love them. And, yeah, weve considered the goats, and the fact that drinking goatsmilk from goats who have eaten poison oak is alleged to induce immunity to that vile shit(scratch, scratch)
              Vonforne, well, it mostly does now. I have felled about a dozen trees so far, with about 8 more to go. those are just the ones that, at some point in the day, add shade to the gardens or a greenhouse. Going to go ahead and saw them into 12-15 inch chunks, then see if one of our patients has a log splitter, work out a little trade. That way it can cure all summer, hopefully be ready for the winter.
              Old Headbanger, yeah, we just got 2 rolls of 7' fence to keep the deer out of the orchard and the gardens.
              FTI, whats up, bro?
              Coldcanna- A guy on the oregon coast does these...and he actually travels into california, and probably WA too. It was definitely raw materials, but he has a JIG to bend the pipe. I saw a sick one with pvc recently, the ribs were super close together so it was tough...

              The clone goddess took a shitload of clones today. I took some the other day and hardly any rooted, so she had to rescue the situation. she is greeat at it.
              we took a bunch of seedlings to the small greenhouse. I added doors and rolled the wall down, and we got 6 yards of compost delivered
              it is soon time to rock n roll
              All of the indoor girls got just h2o and Power-ful last night. going to go see how theyre doing(light just came on, i heard the fan)

                as you can see, this is the moms, and the baby chicks, and veggie starts, and clones, and nutes and chicken food( om-made )



                this is measuring, 4 of the 5-gallon buckets = 20 gallons per wheelbarrow load. here its between pumice and compost



                we got the fence up...mostly. hopefully itll keep the deer out, or will let me catch one in it, like a net. lol

                been mixing a bit, the base soil is 3 wheelbarrow loads of pumice, compost, and peat, which is 2 bales. thats 180 gallons per pile, ive done two. about a yard each. almost. havent added ammendments
                damn its hard

                  this is about 2 plants worth, just the base



                  each 2 bales represents another 180 gallon of base mix...by hand

                          Ahhhh, the clones have rooted...mostly. i guess 85%!



                          And Big Dick O'Malley is about to shoot his stuff, it seems

                          Hey, Thanks, Coba. I sure hope so. its turning out that way (strawberries went in yesterday, and seventy-two 4" pots with basil went from the growroom to the greenhouse today

                          Slow, VF? things are going on all day every day, and I am so sore from mixing soil...my ol lady ( <3 ) made the funny comment "..what made us want to be farmers at 40?" with no farm implements, none-the less. it was just a hella deal that took every cent we had, but weve both always dreamed of organic farming (since tour in the early 90s) and its just NOW that we can. (yes we cannabis)

                          And FTI, we may go to october or even november, if we do 2 crops in the greenhouse. but maybe just september if we do one...I have a feeling they will be healthy!

                          so far i got a dozen yards of base soil mixed, tomorrow is a break (fishin, maybee)...and sunday, going to amend the soil.

                          what does anyone think of the 'landscape fabric' as a breathable raised bed material? with wood as a frame? that thin cheap shit, like 20 bucks for 100'...its not really hella strong, but I would end up reinforcing it with wood, in a month or so...just need something as a pot-like raised bed thingie, and i think the smartpot shit is expensive
                          Thanks for looking, have a grateful day

                            I don't recall where I heard it, but I think that stuff is tough enough for the job. Are those your jedis in the pic above?

                              Oh, no....the last jedi was damaged in the transport ship, and we didnt clone the one in flower. I found 2 seeds, which were from an OG male that was discarded, but had a feew flowers...I hope to pop em, because that jedi kush is the fucking jedi flowers for real(not in stealth, but in thier power)

                                Okay everybody, some amazing discoveries
                                1) landscape cloth will NOT hold up the soil, in a wooden framed pot. gotta go with something stronger
                                2) always bring your tape measure, and measuring cup, and extension cords, or you may make 3 trips from the house to the barn and back

                                Anyways, about 12 yards of base soil mixed, and one pot made, that failed, but the mix was as follows
                                7 cups nem seed meal
                                7 cups kelp meal
                                7 cups crab meal
                                7 cups alfalfa meal
                                7 cups og fishbone meal
                                1 cup calphos
                                1 cup sulpomag
                                4 cups oyster shell flour
                                25 pounds(half a bag, about 32 cups) of basalt

                                thouroughly mixed with 20 five-gallon buckets of base soil, ie 100 gallons, ie about 14 cu ft

                                anyone think this is good, bad, or indifferent? Ive had decent results with just the kelp/crab/neem, at double that dosage...wonder wehat the alfalfa/org fishhbone meal/sulpomag/calphos will add to it? its not a lot, like 1 tbsp of the minerals, per ft, and 1/2 cup on the alf and fish
                                Ima let it sit for a bit, and plant cover crops of course, for a living mulch(damn ive learnbed a lot here at IC)
                                Got to mix a few batches. at least I can keep track of em here. Got to check on them smart pots
                                Oh, I asked another member who had mentioned it in the past, but I am going to start slinging horsetail, nettles, and a few other botanicals, and my friends said if I did the packaging, they'd list them on their store, on etsy. Would there bee any in particular anybody would be interested in? If we cant find them, we can grow them. Id love to grow comfrey to make compost for wormz to eat. We have a couple hundred, from workin in thegarrrrden,(worms) ive been giving them pinches of neem, alfalfa, different rock dusts, in a bed of peat and compost(wonder if they could eat those fuckin crab shells?

                                sorry for rambling. Got 36 clones poppin,(plant limits suck ballz) and are ready to pot up again took another round last nite
                                Tahoe OG.
