    Right here! Still checking in occasionally, but had some bad stuff happen. Hurricane, lost bank account, two year old broke his foot... you know, life stuff.

    Worked out great. 16oz from 8 5 gallon pots in a 3x4 foot space.

    With this summer's outdoor tomato crop, I used just earthworm compost, perlite, vermiculite, and peat at first, which made for some exceptionally thick and healthy plants, but they started showing deficiencies when it was flower time, so I supplemented with organic tomato food. Still going strong - only part of my garden to survive the hurricane since I was able to move them to higher ground.

    Anyway... they did really well outside in crazy heat all summer with a variety of plants, so I'm thinking the design is pretty good for most conditions.

    I just found something new though... turkey litter. A guy I know has a turkey farm, and has given me permission to take as much as I want out of his 280 ton pile of poop, urine, and bedding. Along with the occasional carcass. Yuck.

    I looked up the NPK, and looks like it's practically made for cannabis, especially blooming. Will be testing on tomatoes in the hippy pots soon.

    Sorry to hear about your troubles OBX! Especially the poor little one. Saw a guy wearing an OBX shirt over the weekend... I said 'so that's what it stands for'. He looked at me like I was a little off lol.

    Wow, that must have one packed closet... doesn't sound like you could have worked in a vertical yo=yo though :smoker:

    Glad to hear you weathered the hurricane... we had coastal company for a couple of days!

    Great score on the turkey poop, does it have to age like chicken shit? I hope that domestic turkey superior intelligence isn't passed on thru the tomatoes :smoker:

    Anyone using 100% coco hempys? Is it possible to run fine coco with chunk coco in the reservoir? I know the norm is to mix in perlite, but I would like to get away from it. I've used 100% perlite with good results, but it always seems to make a mess in my experience. Coco seems much tidier.

    I was also wondering if anyone was running only organic nutrients (except perhaps synthetic cal/mag) in a hempy bucket.

    My third and final question is about flushing. I know the OC+ guys don't do it, but I wonder how some of the other hempy vets approach it. After flushing 2 weeks I had premature yellow/necrosis and still felt like it could have been flushed better (hence my interest in organics). I used 2 part synthetic triflex grow and pbp bloom (which is supposed to be at least partially organic).

    Thanks for reading! I hold bluedawg, ss, obx, and docbud (among others) in the highest regard! I followed your respective threads on another forum, and I can't thank you all enough for sharing your knowledge. I would still probably be a failed soil guy without your patient and informative posts.
