  1. Hey All Happy New Year! Seems a good time to start a diary Thanks to all at Sweet seeds for running another great competition and Joolz for hosting. Good luck to all the competitors, hope everyone has some fun getting their jars full. I've had a few issues uploading pics but with that sorted I'll whip through the first couple of weeks and get up to date. Cheers
  2. Runtz XL Auto® A 6th Generation autoflowering strain. This is our extra large, autoflowering version derived from the Runtz genetic line (Zkittlez x Gelato). The strain is notable for its delicious aroma, strong effects and high yields. The Runtz strain has revolutionized the Californian marijuana scene and it is one of the most aromatic and potent genotypes on the West Coast of the USA. Runtz XL Auto® (SWS88) is the product of crossing a carefully selected Runtz clone with handpicked individuals from our Sweet Gelato Auto® (SWS76) strain. It contains high terpene concentrations, which lends the buds their very intense, delightfully sweet and fruity bouquet. It has a short life cycle, with just 8 weeks from the appearance of the cotyledons until harvest. Its effect is powerful and well-balanced, producing peaceful, relaxing vibes, while stimulating creativity and the imagination. Variety SWS88 Indica: 47,1% / Sativa: 52,5% / Ruderalis: 0,4% THC: 17-25% · CBD: 0,5% Indoor Yield: 400-550 g/m2 Outdoor Yield: 50-175 g/plant Indoor/Outdoor Harvest: 8 weeks from germination Height: 60-120 cm
  3. Welcome Amigos! As a sort of tradition by now, I'll start by thanking Sweet Seeds and their entire team for hosting another edition of the greatest comp in the weed net! You guys rock, especially in those "challenging" times! Now let's get to business... I received a few new strains and still had a few more in my stash box, just waiting for the comp to start. There will be two batches: one batch containing fast flowering strains (8 week flowering) and the other with regular speed strains (9 week flowering). I'll be growing 2 seeds of each strain. FV Batch (8 weeks) Gorilla Girl FV - I've grown the normal Gorilla Girl version a few times and enjoyed every time. Some strong and tasty smoke and wonder how the FV will compare. Crystal Candy FV - Same story the Gorilla Girl, done the normal version before... Green Poison - This is the first strain I ever grew during the first comp back in 2009. I remember it being a good smoke - looking forward to travel back in time. Sweet Cheese FV - One of my favorites from the catalogue. Never seems to disapoint. Normal Batch (9 weeks) Sweet Zenzation "Zkittlez" - First time growing this strain. I've just noticed the name change... are the original packs more valuable now? Red Hot Cookies - Hoping for some colourful phenos, but my first with her as well Psicodelicia - I think i've mentioned this strain a few times, but keeps returning to my grow room and for good reasons - I just love that strain! Black Jack - Actually, I wanted to get the CBD version for my gf... sadly, i did a mistake while ordering.... well, the normal Black Jack is still good in my books. Sorry Nutrients and Additives Biobizz All Mix Compost Grow - in use only during flowering Bloom - in use only after the 2nd week of flowering Fishmix - mixed into every other feed during flowering Topmax - mixed into every other feed during flowering Root Juice - mixed into every other feed during vegetation CaMg Boost - Mixed into every other feed during flowering from the 3rd week until end of 5th OG Granules - Only used during pot ups The way I germinate the seeds Always under the watchful eyes of my trusted accomplice. I place some Biobizz All Mix compost into a seedling tray. The compost is evenly spread and slightly compacted, not too much though. Water is sprinkled on the top of the tray and then small holes are made about 5mm deep. Seeds are then selected and placed into holes with the pointy side up! The holes are closed with a pinch of compost. Never forget to label! Tray with the lid is then placed onto a heated pad in the system. I actually left the light off during the first 24hrs. I also leave the vent holes closed until first seedlings appear of the ground in a few days hopefully. I plan to keep both batches in this system during vegetation and then seperate them when entering flowering. Possibly flowering the FV batch sooner then the "regular" batch. I might also only pot up the FV only twice while i will pot up the other batch 3 times. They will certainly be topped and cuts will also be taken... System used for vegetation Bonanza Box (110x78x160) CXM 320W LED light, courtesy of diyled - dimmed all the way down atm 125mm TD Silent with PK Carbon filter - passiv extraction The FV batch will remain in this system until the end of flowering, while the normal batch will move into another system. System used for flowering of the "normal" batch Darkbox 120 (120x120x200) 400-660w hps lumatek - mostly dual spectrum light bulb 125mm TD Silent with PK Carbon filter - passiv extraction All the seeds have been placed into the system just about 2 days ago and hope the first seedlings are going to appear soon. In the meanwhile, I wish all the contestants some good luck and for all to stay safe out there... AT

  25. Amsterdam - Fraggs Family's Sweetest Weekend - Trip Report Before starting this trip report I'd just like to thank uk420 for being an amazing place where such cool things are possible and of course Sweet Seeds for taking me and the missus to Amsterdam not to mention the 3500 Euros , on top of that also welcoming my kids along for the ride In particular I'd like to thank @Sweet Seeds-tommy for all his hard work organising..... well everything frankly and being a superb host for the weekend and @Sweet Seeds -Jaypp who was the just the friendliest and warmest person I've met in quite some considerable time. We had many smokes and laughs despite my non existent Spanish and him having to pester poor Tommy for words he didnt know To sum it up I felt I made 2 friends for life meeting them both and they are both always welcome to stay with me if they ever get the chance They are both past winners of the Spanish version of this competition over on cannabis cafe and it felt like they were welcoming me to the club which was really nice ....cheers lads! Right onto the report..... The night before I thought I had better get some sleep early for once, a thought I have had nightly pretty much all my life and as per usual it failed to happen I was simply too excited having never been to Amsterdam. I have also never had the opportunity to go on holiday, even for a weekend, with my whole family in the summertime so I was just over the moon at having this chance at last But yeah it meant bugger all sleep! The upshot was my wife and I plus youngest son were up at 6 with v little kip to leave the house at 7 am and pick up my eldest son an hours drive away in Carlisle at 8, then drive across the country to Newcastle for our 11am flight to the dam. We were messaging my daughter who was flying out of Gatwick as she lives in London and she was on track too, we were due to arrive about 10 mins apart in the dam My first task however was to make 3 pure spliffs with some Haze CBD to get my endocannabinoid system dosed up ready for the weekend and get into the right vibe I had one before we left, one in the car to Carlisle and one more on the final leg to the airport. Luckily my timings were perfect and by the time we got through all the damned checks they have at airports these days and scored a pair of Oakleys for my son, the boarding was just beginning ...phew we had made it just in time! Ready to fly high Landing in Amsterdam we discovered my daughter had landed before us and was waiting outside Schipol airport looking very happy to be back in the the dam with the famous "I amsterdam" sign behind her (it's not her in the pic!) We made our way to the train station and caught a train to Amsterdam central having been told they had double decker trains I wanted to try one but ours came and it was just single but it took us swiftly into central Amsterdam with our 5 Star d'art Hotel just across the road from the station. It was noticeably warmer then the piss wet Lake District we had left just hours earlier and promised to be a warm sunny afternoon Our first task was check in and we were greeted by the ever smiling Jaypp and we arranged to meet up with the rest of the party at 3 having taken our stuff to the room. The room was just superb with cool designs and 4 settings just for the lighting, mood was my fav The ceiling was damned high so no hope of popping a shower cap on the smoke detector but I had little intention of doing anything but sleep in the room so it didnt matter Speaking of which it was the most comfy bed I've ever slept in, seriously cosy I had meant to ask them what the mattress was but well I was a little baked most of the time and it slipped my mind! The central part of the hotel was this sculpture We all met up in front the the hotel at 3 I think it was, firstly @Highburyway and his lovely wife that we all got on great with, they really are just the sweetest couple, each one of my kids told me so individually which was nice I swore, as is my way I'm afraid, and said she thank God for that I thought I might have to watch how I speak The Spanish couples were both there too with their girlfriends/wives the eldest one Jeep having won this competition before was an old hand and his wife was lovely We also had a really sweet young couple from Sweet Seeds who would be covering the trip, I hope they are as I decided not to take any photos having seen the size of his....camera I decided not to get my compact out In all seriousness I wanted to enjoy the whole experience and soak it all up and not waste time worrying about photo composition and the camera so I must apologise in advance for the dearth of photos in this write up but I can promise you there will be some great photos and videos taken by others that I wouldn't be able to compete with I know @Sweet Seeds -Jaypp did a very cool video of our boat trip on Sunday I hope he can share with us all soon After some initial introduction we headed up the road to explore the city in the direction of Amsterdam Square and to find somewhere we could get a meal as we were all hungry and not a little tired. It turned out that all of us had little sleep the night before and so we were all tired and in need of nourishment. The weather was superb, I'd guess around 24/25 with a cooling breeze and the odd cloud to stop it being overly warm. We found an Italian restaurant for lunch that could fit us all in and had a swift meal of Pizza and Calamari washed down with Heineken. I'm not a drinker much these days but always wanted to try Dutch Heineken and it was superb tbh, I used to drink Heineken when I lived in Greece when I was younger and loved it but the Heineken in the UK was always shit by comparison. We then hit our first Coffee Shop the Feels Good, my Greek wife texted the kids saying we are at Phil's Good and I bought the first weed I've paid for in God knows how long! Fuck me the price too!!! However given I had an unexpected windfall I wasnt about to skimp due to the prices so I went for the priciest on their menu the A'dam haze which for a while I thought was Adams haze wondering who the fuck Adam might be? Well I was tired guys and with one of those pure Amsterdam haze spliffs later more than a little confused I also picked up a gram of Amnesia Haze to see what it was like but it was a little cheaper too. See the pic below for their weed menu. My 3 kids found us here having sorted their room and tucked in to some weed too, my eldest struggling with the pace not being a regular smoker at all The A'dam haze smoke was nice and strong I thought but tasted of hydro compared to my usual organic worm shit fed ganja but I wasnt going to let that fact spoil it I was up for the whole experience Jaypp had a bag of goodies and he started to hand out Sweet Seeds stickers and skins for us all bless him @Highburyway being the experienced pro he is had got some Moroccan hash to supercharge his spliffs with, a move I copied from there on, cheers mate I felt a massive relief to up the THC levels though and I felt nicely baked by the time we left to continue our amble around. Tommy then guided us, not for the first time, through the Red Light District that he seemed to be magnetically attracted to Just pulling ya leg mate We ended up by the clock tower with some old very articulate tramp telling us the history of the building I was gazing at, poor fella looked like alcoholic and asked for some spare change. I duly gave him some thinking what an elegant pitch for money, Highburyway also dug into his pockets for some shrapnel and our temporary tour guide shuffled off into the crowd and some better breaks in life with any luck. The next Coffee Shop was the Dampkring, this one I had actually heard of when I had looked up recommended Coffee Shops on Google before coming, it was packed when we walked in and we couldnt even find a place to roll having picked up some AG13 and some Super Silver Haze Luckily some tables cleared and we could sit down and skin up, I had hoped more vapes would be available in general around the coffee shops but decided pures was the way forward for the weekend I had to decline tobacco spliffs for the first time ever which felt weird Again I found the weed here strong but not exceptional and the flavours were nice as well, I think I got some black hash here too but it could easily have been elsewhere, in fact alot of the details in this report are a little bit ummm hazey shall we say Haze's were the theme of the day of course as they take so long to run at home so it was nice to try a variety from different places for once I'm sure we then went to another shop the name of which I cant for the life of me recall where I purchased yet more Haze and Black hash to give it some kick All the while we were walking further from the hotel a fact that Mrs Highburyway was becoming painfully aware of as she has a bad back and so was getting worried about finding somewhere to eat and sit down. We walked something like 9km that afternoon/evening Jaypp told me, so no wonder she was in pain, luckily I'm on my feet daily all day with my work so was OK despite being an old fart Looking back I'm personally glad we walked so much on the Saturday as it meant we saw as much of the city as we possibly could for one day and come the boat trip I knew places I had seen the day before and the place started to make sense ....a bit! Damn Amsterdam is a quirky place the houses with hooks leaning over so they could pull up their furniture to the top floors all multi-coloured and fairy tale like, its delightful I think as is the tolerance of the Dutch and calmness they seem to have Here's a few phone pics so apologies for the quality as you can see the weather was epic! But we sure did some walking! Mostly with my daughter telling me to get out of the road as the whole pavement/road/cycle lane thang in dam is not easy for a country bumpkin like me! I was screwing up all over the place Somehow over the course of the evening everyone peeled off to romantic dinners, hotels or live sex shows..... who knows!...... but it was just me and my wife and Tommy and Jaypp looking for a place to eat in the end and places were starting to close as we found an 'Argentinian' Steak House with tables on the street as I felt it was time Amsterdam walked past me for a change We filled the table with plates of food Mediterannean style with a massive pile of mixed grill meat taking centre stage and it was a really great meal just what I needed as I was starting to flag from the early start and lack of sleep, in fact I think everyone was really. We then headed back towards our hotel as it was around midnight to find a place to smoke nearby, we ended up in the Resin Coffee Shop and I picked up some Candy Kush and White Widow I think it was as a later night bedtime smoke. The rest of the Spanish posse were already there tucking into their smokes so it was nice to meet up again and it was a nice clean place with plenty room for us all but come 1 am we were turfed out and headed back to our hotel and our uber comfy beds for some desperately need sleep The Kush certainly levelled me out nicely for sleep but I could have slept standing up by then anyway! I was going to need my sleep as tomorrow would be filled with loads of fun like cookie eating, boat trips, cannabis cups, free judges weed handouts as well as freeing the weed itself at Cannabis Liberation Day If Highburyway, Tommy or Jaypp would like to correct anything my shocking recollection of the day's events please feel free guys As I type this my daughter has just landed and is already feeling the downer of being home that we have had this last day, it says something of how much the whole trip meant to us all how much we now miss it!! TO BE CONTINUED.....
