  1. Athina

    Fatrasta's Athina, #1
  2. Fatrasta's Athina Landrace Greek or not?

    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.
  3. Hemorrhoid cream

    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

    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!
  5. Kinky Blaze x Silverfields

    Perfect timing, too. I'd imagine that SiFi Blaze could be some great yard/garden work weed. A joint of some nice upbeat weed is one of the most essential tools when working outdoors. I need to get things rolling in the garden over here too by the looks of it. Been bitching about the cold weather, but now that it's warming up.... I don't have an excuse to put it off anymore! Damn it!
  6. Kinky Blaze x Silverfields

    Toss some schisandra chinensis berries in the mix, your body will thank you. At least mine did. Especially good for the liver, great for those of us who may have overworked that poor organ in our young and careless years. Plus, I personally love the taste. Make sure you bust open the seeds too when preparing, lots of the goodies are "locked" in there. Easily cultivated in most climates, too. Chicka chicka yeah!!!
  7. Lets Share Some Bud-porn

    I'm glad I'm not the only weirdo that stares at critters when I'm stoned . Take the time to enjoy the little things in life, folks. Sorry, I have nothing far enough along in flower to share... Gimme a couple weeks . Beautiful buds, everyone.
  8. I'm complaining

    I feel ya bro. It's been a rough one out here in my corner of the woods, too. 60° one day, snow the next.
  9. Sleep

    I agree with everyone on the edibles. They always guarantee me a nice long deep sleep, whether I want it or not.
  10. Stinkers

    I'm not sure why... But, for some reason, reading this post brought an extremely mischievous, "Grinch-like" smile to my face. I have a problem, guys...
  11. Buyer Beware: Hemp Depot Seeds

    @wisecalyx That's almost EXACTLY what I was thinking. Sannies customer service, in my experience, goes above and beyond that of many distributors. I don't see anything wrong with a company sticking to their stated policy. BUT, on one occasion, I sent them an email regarding low viability. Pretty sure I left the package inside of my black mailbox for far too long on a hot sunny day and cooked them. Anyway, he seemed very eager to help solve the issue. Not only did he ask about my process and how I generally get things popping, he also offered suggestions on how to improve the process AND replaced the full order with nearly no questions asked. So I do believe, as somebody else mentioned, that it has a lot to do with the breeder and not necessarily HD itself. The order that was replaced, consisted entirely of beanho crosses. It seems to me, and please correct me if Im wrong because this is just an assumption, that Brad is the breeder behind beanho. Which would make it easier to send replacements, opposed to contacting another breeder such as gage green genetics (just an example) and explaining that the seeds which from what I understand are "fronted" (i.e breeder doesn't get paid for the seeds until the seed bank sells their seeds) didn't reach their destination or didn't germinate or whatever the situation... Anyway, I guess my point is that it may not always be so easy to get a breeder to agree to replace an order. That replacement is coming out of someone's pocket, and people tend to be reluctant to open those pockets. Of course, I could be wrong. I may have just gotten lucky. It wouldn't be the first time I've seen a once great seed bank go downhill (cannazon, anyone?). But, for now, I still wholeheartedly trust and support HD. @snookster, I definitely didn't perceive this thread to be dissing HD at all. People deserve to know what they're in for and what risks they may be taking should they choose to place an order. Nothing wrong with that at all. Reading it on a forum first and choosing to take the risk is sooo much better than placing an order under the impression that lost orders will be replaced, only to find out "surprise! Order confiscated. Better luck next time" I hope my long, rambling post makes sense. I am running on very little sleep and nothing but bacon, so the ol' brains working a bit slow today.

    You've got good taste, Baq. Can't wait to see these develop.
  13. Buyer Beware: Hemp Depot Seeds

    That's just a risk everyone has to take when purchasing seeds outside of their own country, unfortunately. Not really any fault of the seed bank. HD is a solid place to buy from, hands down.
  14. Bouddica

    Can you tell us what you think about the smoke from the UK blues? I've been eyeballing that strain for a while thinking about picking up UGORG's version. Sounds like an interesting project, man.
