Hi all,

This journal will be for the experiments myself and anyone else who wishes to share theirs here. I experimented in the past to build the Quad12 RDWC system and the fog cloner. I will be showing the good the bad and the ugly of things done to our plants.

A couple things I will be starting off with in this journal are the Raspberry Pi 3 and the Arduino Uno R3 I have to play with. Having never played with them I am greener then most who may read this journal. I encourage you to chime in and help myself and others figure out what we may be able to do with them in the grow room. I will be starting off real simple...LOL

I also have been playing with some of the KNF (Korean Natural Farming) ideas and am looking forward to see the effects.

Please jump in and humor in this journal is encouraged.

You're going to put baby vomit on your plants!? So gross.

And I'm curious about the leaf mulch. Did you sterilize it or does it still contain all the natural nasties from outside?

Do I smell patchouli? I think I smell patchouli. Have you gone stinky hippie on us? :hippy:

I like the sounds of your journal JM... but I think this is Wwwwaaaaayyyyy over my head!! You have used some acronyms and mentioned things I don't even have any clue what they are...lol! I think I'll stay in the bushes and watch... [emoji120][emoji482]

Rider,
From wiki... ##The heavy and strong scent of patchouli has been used for centuries in perfumes and, more recently, in incense, insect repellents, and alternative medicines.##

Sound like a possible IPM...Hmmm

Leaf mulch is dirty, if it was in it outside its in it now. Could be bad could be good.

Tunkers and Chris welcome.

Peece all the acronyms I think are from the Korean Natural Farming stuff, very interesting. I am sure I will be sacrificing some yield for quality, I am fine with that.

"It is high time that we depart ourselves from blindly apingthe west in the field of agriculture... to discover and rediscover Asianwisdom related to sustainable livelihood systems andtechnologies which are simple and practicable foraccomplishing household food security."

In other words, disregard the agricultural advancements of the west that have allowed a significant increase in production and quality and go back to using nightsoil and spoiled milk and the offal from our "piggery" and chickens.
I remember vividly a documentary on the markedly high incidence of esophageal cancer among the residents of a rural Asian country. It was discovered that their traditional use of natural fertilizers coupled with the practice of rapidly cooking food over high heat to conserve combustible materials produced high levels of nitrosamines.
No thanks. I'll take Monsanto every time.

"...he carried on his experiments and when the results were too transparent for everybody to see, truth prevailed finally" Isn't that kinda like the Emperor's new clothes?
LMAO!

If you had some links to the articles I would like to look at them for sure. I am not saying this is the best thing going, it is a road I am going to take and see what may come of it. I am sure I will learn something along the way that I will be able to use on the next path.

You've got to know that I'm just having fun playing the devil's advocate. From what I read about the Korean method it sounds like valuable knowledge if you want to grow naturally, or if the global economy takes a massive dump and civilization collapses and we're left to grow our own crops.

My grasp of inorganic chemistry is tenuous at best, and I have no schooling whatsoever in organic chemistry so I'll def read what I can find on the KNF method. You never know what bit of knowledge will someday be beneficial.

Come on! "aping the west" and a poo throwing monkey? That's gold, people! And the linguistic mistake of "too transparent" and the reference to the Emperor's new clothes didn't even cause ya to crack a smile? Do I need to include footnotes? Tough crowd tonight. I get no respect, no respect, I tell ya. :)
