Biddy's Sister + Biddy Early Grow

115 posts in this topic

Happy New Year All :D ,

I've started off with 5 Biddy's Sister and 5 Biddy Early, germing them the usual way - in wet paper towel which in turn gets put in the cupboard where the boiler is, seem to get results quick this way with it being a nice tempreture in there (touches wood).

The medium this time is Bio Bizz All Mix which i'll be adding an extra 33% perlite for the first pot up then once the roots have outgrown their pots it'll be neat All Mix from then onwards

Nutes again are Bio Bizz Grow and Bloom and i've still to decide wheather to try either Topmax or Heaven

Using the same Powerplant 400w but this time i'll have a MH Bulb for it as well as a HPS Bulb :rofl:

Fingers crossed the first of the seeds will crack within the next couple of days so i can get the Diary started :yep:

Peace

Baz :rofl:

Hi Bazza,

Good luck, it will be nice to see them side by side.

@ Gom, suitable for outdoor does not have to be unsuitable for indoors at the same time :)

@ Dr. Rockster, I've named the Biddy Early after an Irish legend, see cut and paste below.

I thought it was appropriate since she was just a herbs lady that got prosecuted for witchcraft in the old age because people where afraid for things they could not understand, nothing changed much since huh?

Also, the name of a witch fits well next to Warlock and Magus, I wonder if there are any Irish members among us that know about the legend of Biddy Early.

Especially the first verse of the song makes a perfect fit to "Mary" i.m.o.

THE LEGEND OF BIDDY EARLY - WITCH OR WISE WOMAN OF CLARE?

by Mary Mullins

Biddy Early was a well known figure in County Clare in times past. - in Kilbarron, Clare, the tales of Biddy Early are still told. Born Bridget Ellen Connors in lower Faha in 1798, the daughter of John Thomas Connors and Ellen Early, she married four times but was always known by her mother's maiden name, because it was believed that her gifts were inherited through the female line. She is said to have been a witch, with her cures and potions but perhaps she was a woman before her time just dabbling in herbal medicine.

Dromore Lake

Biddy married four times and her final home was in a cottage on Dromore Hill, overlooking a lake which became known as Biddy Early's Lake. This home in Kilbarron is identified with Biddy 'The Healer', 'The Wise Woman', 'The Witch'. There are many stories of the opposition of the clergy, and in 1865 she was in Ennis charged with witchcraft under the 1586 statute. The case was dismissed 'due to lack of sufficient evidence against the accused'; those who were to give evidence remained strangely silent! She died in April 1874.

So well known as this woman that songs were written about her. Here's two verses from "The Ballad of Biddy Early":

I sing of Biddy Early, the wise woman of Clare.

Many's the man admires her carrot-colored hair,

and many those that come to her on horseback or by cart,

for she can heal a broken leg or a broken heart.

"She keeps a magic bottle in whose majestic eye

a tiny coffin twinkles and if it sinks, you die.

It rises, you grow better and slip out of pain.

It's time for bed," the tinker said, "but pass the cup again.

From "The Ballad of Biddy Early" by Nancy Willard; Knopf Publishing; ISBN: 0-394-88414-0; Out of Print

The reason I have chosen Biddy's Sister is rather simple, I've used the same mother but a different father hence Biddy's Sister.

Many thanks for the detailed answer about Biddy Early,Gerrit.

A choice of name that when explained does fit in rather nicely with the Warlock and Magus. :)

Be watching this one with interest...

Grown out Biddy Early and Biddy's Sister and I have to say that the Biddy Early was by far my fave. A lovely euphoric stone-completely positive always. Really slender Sativa-esque leaves and very open buddage, covered in sticky trichs, sweet on the nose with a very slightly earthy flavour...Beautiful!!

Only trouble was, (as warned in the bumph) that she was impossible to keep as a Mum without 24hr light and at the 18/6 regime in my Mum room she went mad, flowering for all she was worth.

She was lovely and I cried the day she went into the flower room to finish out. Ahh fond memories.

Will probably try another batch of 'Biddy Early' one day to see if I can get a lady with the same uplifting high that isn't so keen to autoflower.

Thanks for the background stuff Gerrit, Very interesting stuff!

Bu.

Cheers every1 :cheers:

A little update :

100% germ rate on both the 5 Biddy Earlys and the 5 Biddy's Sisters, they were then put into 3 inch pots with the All Mix and around 33 - 50% extra perlite, 4/5 Biddy's Sisters have broke the surface and 4/5 Biddy Earlys have broke the surface also, i can see the other 2 pushing the compost upwards so they should be up and going by tomorrow, will get a pic up tomorrow once the other 2 Biddys have shown, Baz :yinyang:

Hi All,

The last 2 seedlings came through this afternoon :ninja: , i've got them all under the usual ES Flourescents, i'll keep them under those until they're around 10-14 days old then they'll get put under the 400w MH :stoned:

Gerrit i forgot to ask you at the start are these beans regular or feminised?, peace, Baz :stoned:
