Yikes man. You get around. Im a lifer in MA. Living in Abington, about 20 minutes from Norwell. @garrigan65
Says 1/8 Recipe??? Why 15 gal. Containers?


#42

Wow you wouldn’t believe how many times I walked from Norwell to Brockton walking through Abington and my dad worked for the Anderson’s who lived across from that lake on 139 and sold Insulation that my father put in for them for over 35 years. We had a road side stand and sold corn, tomatoes and all kinds of vegge’s and pumpkins. You very well may know me. You Think…lol
What a small world we live in. By the way I used to hang out in Rockland Center down town where the drugs poured like water back in the 70s

The answer to your question is… the bigger the pot the bigger the plant which increases your yeild

And I use a larger amount of ingredants

@garrigan65
A small world it is. I am positive i got pumpkins with my kids from your stand. Lived in Whitman for 31 years. Whats with the 1/8 recipe man. 1/8??? Going from 10 to 15 gal will do what? Thank you BTW. I use promix. Good enough for veg??? Thinking flower soil under promix. Is that the plan?


#44

Yes, i use something just like pro mix just made by a different company.
And i do use it for vegg and flower.
I’ll post the 1/2 and full recipe for ya when i get back on my computer. Ok
