Gnome's Passion Grow 2012

Hi folks by now i would expect to have been 4 pages into a diary with an eager crew of peeps egging me on but, there has been considerable reluctance.

I prepped a couple of fine spots for the 5 Frisian Dews i popped to go into. The first 3 i popped went out into some very nice looking soil in a new location while the later 2 went into my good old plot Gnomehenge.

So far the first three have all had their roots attacked by mice after i followed the advice of another GG and put a small amount of oats in with them at plant out to encourage beneficial bacteria. What a fucking shit idea!

Anyhow the 3 Frisians were mouse attacked as were 22 other seedlings i put out.

2 of the Frisians were the only survivors proving em to be tough as you like. I mean there were little tunnels in to the roots and mycorrhizal crystals were all scattered about the place. :sadwalk:

The little scrotes!

Anyway the root nibbling has now made the plants bonsai'd :headpain: Actual Gnome sized lol

The other 2 have gone out at Gnomehenge and were the biggest seedlings to go out at the time. They seem to have actually got smaller :shock: while other strains there are picking up! :spliff:

Anyway the 6 autos are soaking in water now and i feel the grow will end up just being about how these go outdoors...

I am well gutted as i wanted to try the famous Frisian Dew properly and made them some great spots anyway I will get back when there is something half worth seeing to show you all. Sorry Tony mate that is just the way the GG cookie crumbles some times. :russian:

That is a bit of fact mixed in with a whole load of bullshit. What oats are actually used for is to encourage fungi not bacterial growth. The way to use them is to leave a tray out so it gets colonised by fungi then chuck it into your compost pile which will encourage a diversity of microorganisms that break down the organic matter.

A better alternative to oats is dog biscuits as they contain micro-nutrients as well as a good base for fungal growth. They go in the compost though, not into the ground when you plant.
