The YukonKronicle

So Iíve been meaning for quite some time to start a thread to document my pollen chucking efforts as well provide a place to discuss random shit related (or sometimes not) to growing or smoking Cannabis.

I figured on putting it here because the majority of my strains are ACE or ACE crosses and Iím pretty confident it will stay that way. I have a sort of particular interest in crossing ACEs landrace based genetics with modern strains of high regard to find new and interesting twists in the best of some ďolderĒ and ďnewerĒ strains combined.

If the powers that be want to move thread elsewhere then so be it.

Aside from medical use I enjoy the hell out of Cannabis and have been ďintoĒ it since I was about 11. I didnít really start smoking until my mid teens but it was always really interesting in every aspect to me. Even as young as 15 and 16 I knew it was helping me fight the depression that began developing just before my teen years.

I hope to lay out some of my reasons for doing shit and show people some of the results you can get from using as much locally sourced inputs as possible. I live in the Yukon so there are some things you just have to buy but there are others abundant in this place that may not be elsewhere... glacial rock dust for instance is everywhere. Kelp is not but COULD be sourced a days drive away. Bat guano is a rare treat in my garden.

Sort of in keeping with ideas from guys in the living soil threads I like the idea of minimizing the bottles and products and simply gathering the advantages your area could offer..
So Iím hoping to get people looking around and using whatís there and we can all learn a bit together about whatís in our own environments... I feel that connection to the place around us is something cannabis is already special for so why not roll with that a bit? I really love letting this plant teach me new things.

Aside from the hippy shit I just really like good herbs and want to have a spot to bullshit with others of like mind and perhaps pick the Brains of some who have greater...

If people have good stories pics of their plants or smoke reports and the like feel free to post up...
I have PTSD and depression and somehow that makes me anxious (go figure..) so thereís a bit of medical discussion to be had here if any want.

I got my ACMPR couple years back and got set building an organic living soil... my approach was not initially at all in keeping with local harvest ideals. I spent money on everything and gathered only some horseshit from a pasture..
But the soil I wanted to build was meant to approximate a flood plain on a riverside on a volcanic subtropical island.... lol at high altitude.
I figured from what I had read that was a pretty ideal habitat and I was probably right... but recreating it was kind of a ridiculously complex task in retrospect.
As I continued reading and learning and growing I bought some books (the teaming with series. Also had a couple organic garden books my mom had from the seventies) and learned more about how soils work and why and my soil evolved into its present state something between a loamy silty dirt and a highly biologically active tropical grassland/forest soil.
I have zeolite and lava rocks as well as local glacial till pebbles for drainage. I also incorporate pine forest duff (an area that was cleared for landscaping DONíT destroy virgin boreal forests. Please find areas already being developed and destroyed) sawdust soaked with fish hydrolysate and wood chips as drainage and tilth elements when needed.

I use locally made composted lawn/farm/leaf waste and several year old horse manure as a base now instead of peat although pro mix hp gets incorporated because itís my cloning medium. So thereís a solo cup of that once in a while...
I researched local geology and found deposits of volcanic ash from the white river eruption up here 10,000 years ago... it has higher silica% than azomite I believe as well as a numbers of other goodies.
I also located local areas where ancient lava has eroded to dust and can be scooped up under a cliff side and in the same canyon there is a dark brown/reddish layer sandwiched between two limestone ones that is likely (maybe?)higher in organic compounds as it appears to be an ancient organic deposit on the sea bed that was once here.
I have found calcium rich chalky deposits reddish iron rich areas and places where the organics from the forest floor have runoff into dissolving granite. I have also located areas richer in blue and green hues indicative of the copper and other metals common to this area.

I did buy greensand both micronized and not and add it as well as some kelp although now that I started using FPEs and getting Boron from Borax I am moving away from that. Boron is not easily sourced from plants... I have learned that Poplar is a B hyper accumulator though so suppose I could sprinkle Borax around some poplar trees and then compost the leaves. I just donít care enough.
There is also as much as 20% biochar in my mix. I use clay powder dug from a very blue layer 6feet down next to a lake to add more silt and increase CEC as well. I have 42 by 42 inch soil bins filled to about 16 inches with soil and incorporate some brome grass,chamomile, purslane, and some volunteer weeds and wildflowers I havenít bothered identifying. Most of the cover crop dies as I mulch with canna waste,dried yarrow and dandelion some bokashi grain rock dusts bone meal and alfalfa hay or straw but the brome usually pulls through. Itís really the lynchpin.
Brome can send roots like 8 feet deep and pull food to the surface. It also hosts Rhizophagus intradices I believe... I like chamomile because it encourages a healthy rhizosphere. Iím hoping some flowers take hold so there will always be pollen for any predatory mites to eat when prey is low.

I have a thriving worm population in my bins and a terrific multitude of little creepy crawlies right up to thriving centipede population.
Fungus gnats are a bitch if Iím stupid about overdressing/feeding raw organic matter. They donít last long at high numbers as the predators in my soil are varied and hungry and the larvae quickly become targets.
Aphids are an issue every spring. I just need to get my poop in a group and install proper air filters to keep em out... pyrethrums in veg wipes em out easy... I donít fuck with aphids in flower. A plant that gets 6 aphids gets fuckn cut before they spread. I have seen the nightmare they can become. I will not forget it.


Iím on 600 watt digital ballast MH or HPS conversion bulbs with supplemental LED lighting... I try to run dense canopies with high light intensity and lots of lollipopping but that basically just means Iím fucking up 75% of the time because I keep running boxes of multiple strains to evaluate new cuts or breeding goals and doing a shit job of training them.

This post feels like a goddamn Novella. Moving on. Iím thinking bud shots maybe some smoke reports or some shit in next post..

Edit: I figured out how to post pics better on pg 9 for those who get sick of tiny pictures

Fuck yea. Let’s throw down some GT scrog and drybud pics and then maybe some Zam crosses... anyone that’s noticed me here prolly noticed I like my weed to trip me the fuck out if possible

Or STOP me from trippin... lol PTSD fucks yo world up boys. I loooove Sativas but i have started on a juicy soft spot for BLD types that relax me...

PICS.
ACE Golden Tiger Malawi phenotype.

This got cut pretty much at 13 weeks... was actually a disaster as a power outage froze my garden and eliminated most of my strains including GT. I had to order more seeds and currently have a more Thai dom female in flower.... I’ll pop a couple s1 of the above pictured cut and find a more vigorous one to join the Thai dom in being pollenated by the single male I got.

I was relieved to find that freezing didn’t have too large an impact on the quality of the herb although it altered the Terpene profile a bit and made me trim/dry it a little faster so it wouldn’t mould from the moisture generated by thawing.... I’ll try to remember to roll a big ass joint and do a smoke report soon... it’s past 12 weeks cure and really pretty nice stuff. Fucking strong.

cool! nice to hear more, your last grow has been impressive, changing my thoughts about sativas indoors.
i have golden tiger going now, never finished her!!
excited to try her and panama for the first time.

i have never heard of brome

I started playing with Zamaldelica fem right away when I began growing. I love this shit.

I didn’t have males but I had a pretty nicely structured ACE Guatemalan male that stank pretty good so this became my first cross.
I’ll try to get into the complete genesis of this strain later but it’s basically a very Zam dominant hybrid with Guatemalan contributing strawberry terpenes better yield and slightly tamer structure as well as a goofier smiley edge to the Zamal trip.

These are F3s two most common phenotypes. I think one is more Guatemalan dom but the more I look at pics in Guatemalan thread I wonder if I’ve mixed up which one! Smoke test will tell... these are a few weeks ago...

Hereís ZamxGuatemala F3 zam dom... I keep thinking it looks tropical like Garretts but thereís a few pics of Guatemalan with similar looking leafy buds so now Iím a little less confident... shmoke test will prolly be informative.
