Planting clones outdoors in the PNW

img_7611All too often, home growers new to cannabis will simply buy a clone from a dispensary in the Spring and immediately plant it outside. Unfortunately, that will stress the plant and initiate a flower cycle prematurely.  This is because novice growers don’t know about photoperiodism. You will either end up with a very small flowering plant or a light-stressed plant that pre-flowers, reverts back to a vegetative state and doesn’t grow well during the season.

“Veganic” Practices

img_8478Fiddle Farm’s cannabis connoisseurs have high standards. They not only want their cannabis free from chemicals and synthetic amendments, but they want it produced sustainably and humanely. Our cannabis is not only grown organically, but it’s also cruelty-free. We say “no” to using anonymous animal-derived materials such as commercially-produced fish emulsion, feather, bone, blood meal and bat guano.

More then a cannabis farm

Welcome to Fiddle Farms !

We’re an outdoor micro-grow crafting superior, small-batch marijuana for today’s cannabis connoisseur. Farmed on the banks of Hood River in a luscious food forest, our sun and soil grown cannabis crops are tended by earthy farm fairies and thrive on fresh snow melt and enriched native soils. Both a high tunnel and a light deprivation system produce multiple soil-grown harvests throughout the season with a minimal carbon footprint.

We are proud of the cruelty-free, earth-friendly philosophy that guides our vegan practices. Fiddle Farms flowers produces a full cerebral experience: fresh, aromatic buds, delightfully smooth smoke and a deep satisfying high – a high you can feel great about!

We not only grow superior cannabis, we also grow a variety of vegetables and flowers (the other kind), have livestock (Goats, chickens and Ducks) and Bees. It’s a complete farm eco-system.

Please visit “Know Your Grow” for more information on our eco-friendly, organic and vegan-grown operation or visit our “Strains” page if you are interested in knowing what we grow.

 

 

Fermented Plant Juices

This year at the farm I’m taking fertility of the cannabinitas into my own hands.  I am striving to leave behind bottled fertilizers and replace them with my homemade goodies!  Less plastic waste, fossil fuel emissions, and mystery around what my ladies uptake.  After a recent side by side test I am more than happy with the results of my ferments. The only hurdle left to overcome is making production more efficient.  I will pass on a few techniques and recipes I am using at the farm along to you.

Fermented Plant Juices (FPJ)IMG_1228

 FPJ is a way to make liquid plant food out of ordinary/extraordinary plants that are all around us!  It has been used by those who farm using a Korean Natural Farming approach and many others like myself who enjoy mixing and matching the styles and practices that have been passed down since farming began. Last year I began exploring this technique and have really made it part of my flow this year.
