yeah its very tiring. i amnot making soil. i am just ammending the native soil thats there amready. instead of bringing in bags of amendments, i am amending with whatever i can find onsite: rotten wood, leaf compost, sand etc.

for ferts i have granular organics and another mineral fertilizer thats 12-12-17; last year the girls loved this stuff. its blue granules. funny cuzz not all chem ferts are accpeted by the plants. last year i tried another type of granular ferts on a few and they died in 24 H

for hauling out the harvest , well thats with a big back pack and a 45 MINUTE TREK;

I live in a rural area andall my sites are in walking distance from home. i am too precautiouse to drive bud around in my car. i have a family and must make choices wisely.

Check out a video by an Australian fellow. Search for KOG growers lot.. It's an old school film there might be a few helpful hints. Also you could use a little chicken wire to put around the base to help protect from rabbits etc.. An all natural bug killer I've used indoor is diatomaceous earth and contains silica which is good.

If you have a lot of clay add a lot of compost to your soil, even attempt to make a compost pile for future needs somewhere else. Even grass and leaves makes good compost. I would recommend finding a old manure pile or buying compost if you have too. Adding sand to clay holes will make cement like soil if you don't add enough compost.

hello. indeed i have thought about making small guerilla compost piles onsite, probably the year before.

right now i am collecting lots of free compost from under the oak trees near my site. there is a spot where the ground under the oak patch is shaped like a little swimming pool. all the leaves accumulate there. i push away the top layer of new leaves, and underneath there is 2 feet of nice leaf compost. i fill up a 40 L shopping bag and walk it to the patch like 4 meters away.

i will be doing this hauling of compost for a few weeks. i work on my plots every afternoon. so i have enough time to haul thousands of gallons of free native ammendments into my variouse spots.

to bring in bags of purchased soil or compost is almost impossible. to get to this area one must trek down a steep ravine side to get to the stream in the mini valey below thatzs where the patches are. secondly i will be blunt; i am a poor man. i must stay in budget.
the main reason why i dont like to carry bags of soil is for safety. i do cross hunters and hikers sometimes. now if i had a huge backpack full of 100L of perlite during those encounters, the people would probably get suspiciouse. but as it is now i always go with a very small city backpack. in there is my drinking water 2 L bottle, and my collapsible shovel and my smoking gear. a very small backpack, considering i am out in the bush. so whenever i meet people out in the bush i talk about the weather the trees or how dry and hot it is, and then we all go our own way, no second thought.

dont get me wrong and i mean NO INSULT TO ANY ONE ANYWHERE,I really think that haviing fancy soil is a little over rated. that is the result of the very expert marketing skills of the companies catering to cannabis growers; I dont 'need' super soil to grow a cannabis plant. if i want a perfect 5KG plant then yeah maybe, but for the guerilla, nature 'can' provide what is needed , simply the grower must think outside the box

is my native soil better than super soil? DEFINATELY NOT
will my native soil satisfy my growing needs? YES IT WILL

Well said. If I may add one thing. Most people just look for natural clearings when searching for a spot. In nature the natural clearings are there for a reason. The soil does not provide for good growth. Instead find robust,green, vigorous growing natural vegetation.
It is a pain to cut though and prepare the spot but the soil should be excellent compared to a natural clearing found in nature.

Also become aware of which native plants in your area prefer which soil. Some are very close to cannabis in there needs and are best to plant around. While others prefer wet/dry soil or high/low PH and are best to avoid.

Peace GG

I came back home from being away for work for 5 months and found a 6 foot tall pot plant in front of my house. There is an azalea hedge row about 10 feet in front of my house and that hid the plant. The plant was between the hedge row and the front of my house. I've taken plant waste from trimming and harvesting my plants down that path between the front of the house and the hedge row.
A seed must have fallen there at some point and the plant grew while I was away. Thank my lucky stars it grew there and not out in the open. That summer, 2015, was one of the hottest if not the hottest on record in Southwestern Washington state here in the US. Several days over 100F, many over 90F and a bunch in the upper 80's. We had zero rain in July and August and half of September.
I have heavy clay soil below the top 12 inches. This area where the pot plant grew has had nothing done to the soil since the home was built here in 1976. Some grass was planted back then and that's it. I've lived here since 2011 and all I've done is walk over this site over and over again. Yet with extremely high temps. with no rain for 2.5 months and no soil amendments of any kind, a 6 foot tall pot plant grew all by itself.
