I did start my own compost once I started w/ the garden. Have tons of carbon but need more nitrogen. Once I start growing microgreens, I'll have tons tho.@lowfat - Compost costs nothing when you have composters do it for you just need to ensure you don't put the wrong things in them to make it a toxic environment. But yeah, it's not too much especially if you slowly slowly add over time. And if you get nature to do as much as possible for you (rain catch ect).
Sounds like a sweet setup! So i guess having the veg tent you have a constant harvest going on?I run 3x900w marshydro full spectrum daisy chained per tent, 2 tent setup( so 6 lights in all for grow ) with a seedling 2x2x4 tent and a 1000w oneo for light.
Running soil still just have not had time to switch everything over to my hydro setup. Everything has to be closed down for the switch so yeah, this spring though I will make the switch.
Fans, feed and supplements are to many to list TBH, do a simple co2 drip in both grow tents.
Yeah some people have allergic reactions, my brother inlaw has his throat close up on him no matter what, , has to stay away from it.I thought about it, even tho I quit a few years ago as it started giving me headaches and hay fever. Then this summer I helped a friend harvest a plant and I got hives all over my arms for the first time in 5+ years. So I'll probably stick w/ fruits and vegetables, as I'm not sure I'd want to risk an allergy attack.
Also considering you could just buy easily now without feeling like a criminal.@danmitch1 - I thought long and hard about it. And came to the conclusion that although I probably could do it without too much issue, it just wasn't for me. I prefer things like teas, and veggies, and herbs. I love herbs. Drying Bay Leaves , Dill, sage, all together makes some of the most amazing smells in the house.
My strawberries are producing, although not a lot. I get to eat a few each day for the last couple of weeks. They are way out of season so I'm not sure whats up.Thats really awesome man, have you tasted any of your crops yet?
after my ladies are done im going to start some kale and baby spinach
