By the end of this post you'll think I'm certifiably crazy. Absolutely bonkers. Off my rocker, with a few loose screws and a bum kicker...
And you'd be absolutely right, but damn if I don't get results!... (Failure is a result. )
It's been a week (or two?) and the soil should be getting into gear by now, so it's time to get these seeds wet. @LegalCanada chocolate milk obsession reminded me that cocoa powder has five times the potassium of bananas, so I threw in a cup of small-batch organic Peruvian to the thirty gallons of soil. If we're being completely honest I also made a shake with a cup of cocoa powder, four bananas, and two liters of milk, and shared some of that with the soil too. Lmao.
The goal is water only for the entire grow though I'll gladly wait on them hand and foot if needed. Without a soil test a little mysticism is in order, so I used the ancient and irrefutable art of reading tea leaves.
You brew your water, and when it's hot you dump the tea leaves right in with a fat scoop of soil. When you're done drinking the cup you "read" the leaves in the cup and they'll tell you exactly what your soil needs.
This cup pretty clearly says we're on the right track. You see it, right?... You don't see it?.. Oh...
..... Oh well, we'll just have to wait and see than.
The seeds are fricken walnuts.
Six of them were dropped in a vial of glacial water from Alaska that's always cold, but it was advised that this plan was a dumb one, so they were quickly evacuated to some plain old, high quality H2O.
Will update in the morning when these ladies take off their coats.
