Smoke Somethin

15 March 2019 - 11:02 AM

Got this char-griller premium kettle for my birthday, it says its a smoker too. 🚬

So after a little research and about 40 bucks for charcoal baskets and a pizza stone I'm gonna give it a shot.

Here's the kettle

Modified grate out of my old grill, had to cut the sides off, and hit it with a hammer a couple times so it would get past these bolts. 🔨

Forgot to add the apple wood, it wasn't that bad to open everything back up. Glad I took out some of the center of the old grate.

Anyone used either of these ph meters?

I just grabbed a hanna instruments meter for sauce making, wanted to get a good cheaper one,(for watering/feeding plants) even though these aren't a lot cheaper, I thought about grabbing one

Or Dr. Meter

Menards 1020 trays and coir bricks

18 February 2019 - 07:58 AM

My local Menards has 1020 trays for .99 and coco coir bricks from burpee 2 for 4.00

I think I saw that the sale was going on till the 22nd or 23rd.

I paid 1.50 a piece for trays at Greenhouse Megastore. And I just bought the coir from Menards for 2.97 a piece the other day.

Figured I should let you guys know.

I was looking into growing my own Mycorrhizae and came across this info.

Its says Epsom salts aren't good for the fungi.
Also said cannabis in the presence of mycos removed heavy metals from the soil. That's cool unless your smoking it lol.


I might try to grow some but I definitely need to do some more research.

What do you guys think? I know a lot of people use Epsom salts, myself included. I'm going to attempt to meet the calcium and magnesium levels needed with compost teas this year so I might lay off the Epsom

Compost tea recipe for young plants?

04 February 2019 - 04:05 PM

I got my compost tea kit today and I have the airstones going in a gallon of water right now.

I was wondering if anyone had a good recipe for these plants. They vary in size from just cotys to 2 sets of true leaves.

Materials available for the brew are:

Worm castings

Souluble kelp powder

Soft rock phosphate

Azomite (0-0-0.2)


Alfalfa meal (3-2-2)

Dry molasses

Fish hydrolysate (2-3-1)

Sunflower hull ash

Soluble mycorrhizae fungi

Any input is appreciated!
