Danville's a pleasant enough sleepy town. The loss of all the tobacco business, textile industry, Goodyear (I think) tire factory, has hit them hard over the last couple of decades. I think there's still an ag economy there. They have a multi-hundred million dollar casino on the way, and I guess that's good for economic development. The Valley of Virginia - Augusta and Rockingham Counties are the ones I know best, and they are beautiful. I'd look there. Staunton / Harrisonburg area. I think those are the two a poster above mentioned. Big NH dealer in Staunton.
You're right... kevinn did suggest this area. Thanks for the info on Danville. Sounds as dead as this place.

Most places even Cali is one ounce unless your medical. Which is so stupid. One ounce is a joke. I can smoke that in 2 weeks alone and a crop can take 4 months indoors.

The laws are DESIGNED to make you buy highly taxed commercial weed from the state designated dealers.

Get a doc to write you a script if you have any qualifying disability. It’s worth the 100$ a year.

Smoking weed grown with any Neem makes me sick...that is tested and proven...it's not pleasant, so I only smoke my own...I'm not much into concentrates other than edibles...I would never smoke dispensary weed...just not my brand.
I live out here in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by horses and cows...the two people closest to me are in their 90s...been growing long before it was legal...now that it is legal...I still grow it and always will.
I'm on a Tony Green kick right now...pics to follow:

Hey guys can anyone tell me if 7.4ph is OK for seedlings? Soil is mostly happy frog with just a little of my soil in the bottom half of solo cups. Top half is just happy frog. Will that ph level be alright when the roots make it to the soil?

Sounds a bit high to me. There's some dirt growers on here that'll chime in. I do hydro, and I keep the PH right around 5.8. 5.5-6.0 is the usual.

There are pH buffers in most commercial soils. 7.4 is not optimal, but in your soil... It will be ok because...

Your soil will buffer it until you've flushed out the bennies it has in it and start feeding. Then... Like said ^^^, you want to keep to 6.5 to 6.8.

Thanks guys. Is azomite going to affect it any? I forgot to add it and plan on incorporating it before transplanting. I've never used it but have read great things about it.

This might be a dumb question but can organic material raise ph? My soil was exactly 7 about a month ago and that was taken when I had the materials first mixed. Now it's 7.4 worm castings, bat, seabird guano. Fishmeal, bone meal, crab meal, kelp, and oyster powder. I have yet to add my peat moss also. That might lower it a bit huh?

Azomite is full of micros that will benefit your microbial herd. It also acts as an anchor for the microbes to latch onto. Anything that makes soil better will benefit all of the good soil dwellers.

Yes it can and will. When adding bone/blood meal and guanos, it is best to let it "cook" for a few weeks to let the herd balance everything out. Oyster powder is a basic additive... Yes.. peat will help balance it out. It needs time to help tho.
Thank you. I figure on transplanting around may 20th. That's almost another month. I'm gonna hurry and get those mixed so I have time. Very excited. People are saying it's going to be one of those years that are great for gardens. Fingers crossed
