So this year I am planning to grow outdoors. I am located in New Jersey and so far I have found an area to grow. I have a pond as a water source very close by. So far I dug a 3 X 5 X 2 hole and filled it with cow manure and humus, 2 bags potting soil, 2 bags topsoil, 1 part soil from the area.Below are the supplies I have gathered so far:

10 Dutch Dope seeds
10 White Haze seeds
20 Outdoor mix
40 bag seeds

1 bag Miracle Grow Organic Choice
1 bag Vermiculite
Horse Manure

I have very small pots to start seeds in, I have larger containers and buckets of all sizes ranging to 5 gallons. I have plastic black pots that tomatoes are started in and other pots to germinate seeds directly in the soil mix. I was planning on germinating outside in these small pots in may.

Think this is a good way to go? This is my first grow so tips are greatly appreciated.

Are you planning on planting all of those seeds in that one hole? I don't really understand what you are planning on doing.

haha my bad i was really high when i posted that. I was planning on planting a few in that hole, and others in pots and 5 gallon buckets. Im not really sure what I should do, thats why I posted this. I already put in a good ammount of money, and want to make sure i do it right.

i bought miracle grow organic choice garden instead of potting, is there any difference? Can I still use it in dankohzee's seed starting mix?

I have done some guerilla growing. My personal policy is only plant 2 or three in one place. But I'm trying to get a pound or two per plant. Not a fan of miracle gro soil. What are you using to fertilize? In my experience plants get really rootbound growing in 5 gallon pots outdoor. This can and will cause problems. I have seen clones taken from the same mother plant. The ones that were transplanted into a big hole or planter where fine but the ones that were left in the 5 gallon pots hermed. Can you use what in dankohzee's seed starting mix?? Dude are you still stoned?

Miracle grow can be used for growing but it is not recommended. And I hope if you do decide to use it, you wait until the plant is a lot bigger. If you start your seeds in that soil, it will get nute burn.

exit 100, wassup fellow NJ grower =) and to comment that would be really hard to take care of that many plants. It would be better to plant maybe 5 -10 and weed out the males then get a pound or so off each of them. If your not happy with 3-5 pounds of mary then O.o

You want to start with a fertilizer thats higher in N than P and K. The one you listed was higher in P and K. Sounds like something I wouldn't use at all so I can't help you there.
