  1. Personally, I'd love to see more work done with the Santa Maria cut(s). Either way though man I appreciate what you're doing here, can't wait to see what's to come.
  2. They have fatrasta's Athina! Haven't tried them yet but they definitely just grabbed my attention. Lots of interesting stuff over there by the looks of it.
  3. Lost every single seed plant that I started. They were just beginning to bush out and show their gender, when somebody came along while I was away and uprooted all of my plants, and searched through my shed looking for more. Doesn't look like the work of thieves. But, luckily, two clones were missed. And those two clones just happened to be the two plants that I've been the most committed to preserving. This is why I always keep back ups for my backups. And now, on we grow.

    My garden

    Mmmmmmmm Definitely black berries. I love seeing people utilize the wild fruits that grow around them, instead of just overlooking them like many people do. The area surrounding the house I grew up in always had the most delicious blackberrys, with the perfect balance of sweet/tart and IMO the perfect water content. More often than not, the stands I've come across since moving away from my "berry heaven home" have still been pretty darn delicious, just not perfection. But let me tell ya, my current property is LOADED with stands of blackberry canes which produce by far the largest berries I've ever seen. Just absolutely massive. I was all types of excited, mouth watering in anticipation of the first sweet, juicy delicious bite.... But there was not a hint of sweetness and the seeds were so big that it was like small gravel. Imagine rubbing really fine gravel into a lemon slice and then chewing it. They are really juicy, though. And almost every single plant throws out that same basic flavor. I've only been able to find 3 or so plants on the property that could be called "sweet"
  5. Baker creek already seems to be hinting towards an interest in carrying cannabis seeds if the law ever allows it. On their Facebook page, anytime someone sarcastically asks "hey, when are you gonna offer some heirloom cannabis varieties? Huh huh huh", they respond with something along the lines of "We are unable to do so at this time, due to the current laws in our state" Idk, maybe I'm reading too much into it. But I'm hopeful. Sort of...
  6. Yep, freebies. I ended up with two packs before they were gone. I was going to buy a few full packs from a site he was selling through for a little while. But by the time I got the spare cash, that ship had sailed.
  7. Story goes the strain had been closely inbred by a family in Serres. While visiting the family, fatrasta tried to negotiate a trade but they refused because they had no interest in the Dutch genetics. So he bought some (110 grams, I think?) bud to smoke on. But the son accidentally gave him seeded buds instead of the sensi. 14 seeds he said he found. He also says it has been in the family for 100 years. Which seems far fetched, but maybe there was some confusion or miscommunication. I have no idea. Either way, whether the story is true or not, this strain has me hooked. She truly is a goddess in my eyes.
  8. Athina, seeded clone. Smelling even more pungent than her unpollinated counterpart. And this pretty little critter
  9. Looks like one of those spots where, when you go check up on the ladies, you run the risk of being carried away by mosquitoes haha. I like to think of it as extra security. I mean sure, you can always train the local bears to hang around the grow by leaving them food like that story they had on the news last year.... But people can get past a bear. Nobody gets past a swarm of mosquitoes

    Fatrasta's Athina, #1
  11. Forced flowering, close to a month in maybe a bit longer. Just now starting to see growth worthy of being called buds, starting to stink and also beginning to form visible trichomes. Until now, I've only ever grown Athina using the "chop and drop" method with various plants including chicory, dandelion, burdock, black locust tree, nanner peels, etc.. And once with general organics bottled nutrients. Smell and taste of the finished product has always been consistent- skunk and limes. Friends say they smell diesel, I don't. This round I've been using Earth juice bloom, with occasional light top dressing of rolled oats, and she's smelling different than ever before. Skunk, mango and coffee are the smells I can pick out. It's still very early, so there's no telling what it will evolve into. Pretty cool though to see such a drastic difference. She was vegged wayyy too long for being in a 5 gallon bucket, in my opinion. As a result, she gets hungry pretty quickly. It's been raining for just about a week straight out here, yard looks like a swamp, and my plants have obviously been drenched. So, they haven't been fed as much as they'd like. If this rain keeps on I'll cut out OSB discs with slits cut to the middle, to slide over the containers and help control the saturation.
  12. Hey man, maybe you should consider switching to a more "hoppy" beer. Hops have quite a few medicinal applications, and share a lot of the same terpenes as our beloved buddage. Not sure if it would be any easier on the rear compared to other beers, I haven't had the pleasure of experiencing hemorrhoids yet so I have no idea if it would help. BUT, regardless, why not drink some good with the bad? Know what I'm sayin' ? A local brewery out here puts out a brew called "Hopsolution" or something like that. To me it tastes like a mouth full of fruit, flowers and a hint of pine. Girlfriend hates it, but I looooove it. Sorry for the beer ramble, mizz Garden. I'm from the backwoods, beer talk gets me excited lol
  13. Mizz Athina this morning, soaking up some sun. C'mon, guys! Dig those seeds out of your vaults and get 'em poppin'! You know you wanna..... I can't be the only one growing this gal!
