The Chronicles of Chronickyle 2021

Hello everyone welcome,

I have decided to put a thread together where I will post updates as to what i have going on, I have to many plans to have individual journals. I will still update seed run journals that I do specifically but will have extra updates in here.

In this thread there will be indoor growing, outdoor growing, organics, hempeys, hydroponics. We will be growing cannabis and a whole bunch of vegtebles enough vegetables to provide a family of four with all of their vegteble and fruit intake for the entire year. I’m sure my cattle and chickens will make it in here periodically as well. We will be making wine, giving away seeds, and lots more.

Seed germ by planting just in wet promix nothing extra.
Running tally 2021. (i will update this each time)

I sadly dropped my watering container in this little guy :frowning: I felt bad so I’m giving it a fighting chance. Whatever happens happens. Of all my plants I was germing only 2 of the aghan havnt germed yet. So 2 out of 24 is pretty good I think. Just wish it wasn’t the afghan! And of course the one I damaged was an afghan lol of course!

I really enjoy the process of wine making I find it all very soothing, except for the bottling aspect all the sterilizing and leaning over kills my back, I’ve been considering brewing wines and putting them in a keg to get rid of that part of the process. I don’t make your average wine I like the different things. Hoping to brew some dandelion wine this year. My favorite brew so far has been a lemon base with a 4 berry blend. Dangerous stuff on a hot summers day… Thanks for the warm welcome, hopefully I share some secrets, I most likely won’t even know they are, I try to let the plants tell me what that want me to do for them

Nice! That’s actually one of the last’s things Iv brewed I like a good middle of the road traditional about 15lbs of honey per 5 gallons fermented out with dry Lavlin D47 I found the best overall middle of the road type of yeast

Oh that mead recipe sound delightful 1 gallon? that’s got to have a pretty high alcohol percentage … like the idea of a strong Belgium yeast used! Interesting! Sounds like the Newly purchased refractometer might come into play here as well!
