#1469471 Where to get worms?

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on Today, 12:35 AM

For composting that is.

I'm looking at starting a worm farm, and am under the impression that you can't use any old worm from the the ground.

So where do you get worms to farm?


Thanks in advance, TBG

Groupies??????

 

GROUPIES?!?!?!?!

 

 

 

Okay, this is serious now. Get ready for some 

 

 

​BLONDE ANNIHILATION!!!!

 

 

 

 

Not sure if that involves me annihilating you or the other way around     :confused: 

 

 

 

I'm sooooo super tempted to start right here, right now, but hopefully I can contain myself.  :seeya: -Fingers crossed-

 

Worst comes to worst, I'll put a padlock on my seeds and chuck the key in the lake? Doubt even that will work....

 

 

But everyone is off to a flying start, Powelly in the lead with a whopping 0 pods, while KAOS trails behind in last with a dismal 0 pods. TBG was last sighted  headed for a straight jacket...

 

 

:rofl: 

 

 

 

This is gonna be fun!

It's quite disappointing that people will take advantage of other's kindness. That kind of stuff is simply not on. We definitely need a way of cracking the bad nuts! Fortunately, in my shortish time being on here, I've only ever had good experiences.


#1468803 [Jun 19] What are you working on this week?

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 20 June 2017 - 05:04 AM

Also I added a nice subwoofer and 2 speakers under my patio for listening to music while I'm gardening. I found a nice bluetooth attachment for it so I can change music and volume from my phone while I'm in the back yard.   :)

You are now on my list of official legends.

 

 

 

 

I built a medium-ish raised bed. 30h x 150l x 95w

 

No pics yet, but hoping to put in soil soon so I can grow some spinach and broccoli over winter! And then its going to house the large portion of my in-ground grow next season!

Seeing as the Growdown starts TOMORROW I thought I'd make everything crystal clear.

Cannot start before tomorrow in your local time zone. Only plants grown from seed sown tomorrow or later are eligible.
You DO NOT have to start on 21st June 2017, you simply cannot start BEFORE then
No mature plants, all entries must be from seed, grown by yourself.
Seed used should be from a reputable dealer. No open poll seeds.
You must post your start date in this thread, when it occurs. This includes whenever you soak seeds, put in paper towel, put in soil or however you start. As soon as you do something to the seeds, that's your start. Your start date will be used to calculate your time to fork, flower and pod, and determine your eligibility for the relevant minor competitions.
Photos showing your progress are not mandatory, but would be preferred. They also help to validate your entries, and spice up the competition! It would also be preferred if photos were timestamped, although this is not always possible.
You can harvest pods ripe or unripe, and whatever stage you want. Just don't go picking your flowers as entries...
For a harvest to be eligible, a photo clearly showing the picked pods on a scale should be posted in this thread. In your post, you should also clarify the weight and number of pods.
It is not mandatory to keep record of the number of pods, but it will boost your chances of winning a prize!
No limit to number of weigh ins.
I will be keeping score of everyone's tallies, but you should keep track of your own score so that we can compare notes at the end of the challenge. I will also be getting an outside member of the forum to do a tally of the comp when it is finished to verify our results.
You should weigh any pods that you think may be contenders for the heaviest pod title. This isn't mandatory.
You should clearly post the dates of your first and last pickings to be eligible for the longest season prize. Also not mandatory.
Eligible seeds cannot be sown before entering - you must post your wish to enter in this thread, and then sow seeds.
You can enter at any time between now and the closing of the competition. Obviously the sooner you enter, the more time you have to grow your plant, and harvest its bounty!
Your chosen plant for the competition must be confirmed before your first picking. Whichever plant you weigh in first, is your entry for the season.
No cheating. (Duh)
The competition runs on the honesty system. If you're really low enough to cheat, then you need help.
If someone is suspected of cheating, we'll figure out what to do with them.
The Official Winner of the Inaugural Southern Hemisphere Growdown Throwdown - Aji Amarillo will be the person who successfully grows the plant that produces the most total weight of pods within the timeframe provided, that is, 21st June 2017 - June 2018. The winner will be announced once all the results have been compiled
The Winners of the Minor Competitions will be the people who:
Grow the plant that produces the most total pods
Record the heaviest weigh in
Contain the most pods in a single weigh in
Record the heaviest average weigh in
Produce the heaviest pod
Grow the plant that forks in the shortest period of time, from sowing (un-topped)
Grow the plant that flowers in the shortest period of time, from sowing
Grow the plant that produces the first ripe pod in the shortest period of time, from sowing
Has the longest producing season (from first picking to last picking)

A prize pool will be put together, either physically or digitally (through the forum) for the winners. The majority of the pool will go towards the Official Winner of the Inaugural Southern Hemisphere Growdown Throwdown - Aji Amarillo.
All contestants are encouraged to have fun!

There is probably more stuff to address, but we can cross that bridge when we come to it.
Seems like a lot of rules and stuff, but I feel that we should make it clear now, before any issues come up. Hit the nail on the head before the metal ore has been mined is my motto.
The most important thing is that this competition is honest. And we aim to keep it that way. Please resist the urge to cheat, it ruins everyone's time. If you are that departure for some powders, pods and seeds, just ask for some, don't cheat these honest people out of their hard earned prizes.


And that's about all I can think of saying. So buckle up, and get ready to eat some Blonde Dust!

BTW I am competing, that's why I want to bring in an unbiased third party adjudicator.



GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

#1468495 This time for real - need moderators

Posted by ThatBlondGuy101 on 19 June 2017 - 02:50 AM

Nope.

 

The Boss continues to trawl the seas of the forum solitary, waiting for the day that the Messiah of Moderators emerges from the darkness.

 

Many have attempted to fulfill the position, many more have failed.

 

Maybe, just maybe, one day he will realise that his soul-mod is already here. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, that man is Scovie, the one true God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

:rofl:  :rofl:

Actually got no idea lol. 

 

Cool story, needs more dragons.
