September Nominees
@Dusty Kiefers - Mars Hydro TSW2000 Grow N Show
I think Dusty Kiefers deserves another shot at Journal of the Month competition. The reason is obvious, but let me walk you through again about Dusty growing abilities, his commitment to helping others, and the site sponsors.

His current journal is thoughtfully laid out from germination, different stages of veg and flower with complimentary images showing what he is doing. Updates are on a timely bases and quite detailed.

Dusty has been a member on this site for some time now, and his current grow is a testament on how to do it right. He not only encouraging members to ask questions, but meticulously answering all questions ask of him, in a kind and courteous way.

Always encourages other members to use the site sponsors when needed.

Don’t vote until you get a chance to read over his current journal, you will be impressed, I was.

@Jon - Jon's New Pared Down Setup Soil Grow: 3 Photo & 1 Auto With New Dedicated Auto Rig
I would like to nominate:

Jon's New Pared Down Setup Soil Grow: 3 Photo & 1 Auto With New Dedicated Auto Rig

He is very detailed, helpful and inquisitive. I have followed him since day one.
A classic and classy 420 Magazine journal. Great set-up, with all the relevant details, nicely illustrated with good photos. The journal is a clear and clean narrative, with terrific information on subjects such as Rhizotonic, light distance and living soil. Jon's a really thorough poster and talks you through the whole process. Great subscriber participation and a must-read for any first time indoor soil grower.

@Modest Grower - 420 Magazine's Official Girl Scout Cookies Comparative Grow by Modest Grower
I think he did a great job with the comparative grow constantly providing us lots of high quality photo updates with good attention to detail while highlighting his sponsors and replying to questions and comments with good energy and pride. Those colas were monsters and those calyx's were extreme, it was a fun journal to follow from such an amazing cultivator.

@Moto258 - 420 Magazine's Official Girl Scout Cookies Comparative Grow By Moto258
This was a sweet comparative journal with not only great pictures of the grow, but also lots of cool creative shots that could be strong photo of the month contenders. Everything was very clean and organized, the way a proper grow should be. Excellent choices of quality equipment topped off with some very extensive cultivation skills. All sponsors were promoted and I had a blast following along.

:goodluck: Good luck everyone! :goodluck:

Plant of the Month: Jan 2021
Thank you for nominating me words couldn't explain the amount of pride I now have for 420 magazine! Not only were yall here threw some very tough times in my short time I've been a member here but given me more insight on other members here and why this place can be a special place to come too! I've learned a lot being a member here as well with cannabis species that futher enhanced my real life journey away from the garden I get to share with yall! 420 magazine keep fighting for the weaker so that one day they can thrive again! Personal experiences at thought!! ( I can name many others that grew with me in this girl scout cookie comparison that had outstanding journals that went over and beyond what I could have even tried to put into a presentation like they all did! Makes me strive to a better more detailed version next time if their should be one!) Thanks again to 420 staff and all the sponsors that make yalls mission come to life in the real world!!

Damn you guys. Someone actually nominated me again this month. Wow. Last time someone made a comment to me offline and alluded that they were maybe going to nominate me but I forgot all about it until I saw it. This time I have no clue, and whoever it was, thank you very very much. I am as honored to be here as I was last time. The other folks who have journals here are all very very worthy nominees and I wish them the best of luck. I will be voting for one of them, and it's always so hard to choose. The greatest thing about this contest is that everyone's a winner. The real prize IS the nomination, and the likelihood is that those voting got something from the journals in question. So WIN WIN WIN. Those are nice, lol. So thanks again, and please know that win, lose, or place, I wouldn't spend as much time as I do with y'all if I wasn't getting big time return on my investment. The growers here are almost 100% responsible for my rather quick climb up the learning curve, and for that I could never say thanks enough times. The respect level here that we all show one another is also worthy of note and something I love very much, especially after Facebook, my god.

Good luck everyone!

Congrats Jon!

Grow Journal of the Month: Sept 2021
I woke up today wondering if the results of this contest would be up by the time I was finished with the plants. Indeed it was.

WOW. DAMN. I am speechless you guys, and as you may know, that doesn't happen to me very often. First time in my entire life I ever won anything in a contest.

THANKS SO MUCH to those who voted for me and the person who nominated me. Congratulations to all the nominees, and I gotta say @Modest Grower, that was a close one, I was sweating it a little bit, but would have been happy to have placed second to your fabulous journal. I read them all and any one of us could easily have won this month.

Thank you to 420 and the moderators too. You guys do amazing work here, tirelessly, and it is very much appreciated. I hope y'all are aware of just how successfully you are carrying out your vision here. There's not a sniff of "social media" stuff here, and that alone makes it super special. The help I have gotten since I joined the forum has literally changed my life, as much as that may sound like hyperbole. It's interesting, and fun, and an unparalleled learning experience that I have never found on any other forum. Truly a one-of-a-kind place to be and I am glad as hell I'm here.

Thanks also to the sponsors for putting up a fabulous prize pack and all the support you give to us here, I am very excited to try a new light and upgrade my blurples, and I guarantee my autos in the outdoor rig are going to be singing a happy song. I also probably won't have to buy nutrients for quite a while. Awesome, and thank you. I am very happy to now be using several sponsored products which I wasn't even aware of before joining the forum.

This is a humbling experience for me guys. It really means a lot and thanks again so much. I'll try my best to finish this journal with the momentum y'all have now provided me.

Yay!!!!

Your journal was amazing and if you hadn't been so damn close to overtaking me I would have voted for yours. I learned a lot from yours as I grow in soil. The transition is on the horizon, and journals like yours really help me get an idea of what I'm in for. Great job man. And thanks!
