Good morning lovelies! :toastingyouallwithmycoffee: Hope you have a great day.
We are due for some of the rain that Harvey has been pouring on Texas and Louisiana. Not nearly as much thank god, but we do need some rain. It has been at least a week and my outdoor plants are looking puny.
Last night we began the process of transplanting the girls into their forever homes - 5 gal cloth pots. Wow, if you don’t use cloth buckets, I would strongly recommend them. They are great and much sturdier than I thought they would be.
I say that we STARTED the process - so consequently that means we didn’t finish. Ran out of dang potting mix! I think that one of the very overlooked costs to growing is the cost of the soil! Especially if you choose quality (read high priced ) soil. Ugh. We got 4 of the 7 transplanted and will finish the other 3 tomorrow night after we get more soil and perlite delivered.
Transplant came none-to-soon after removing them from their 2 gal bags the roots were perilously close to being root bound. We were shocked with the size and capacity of the root system! Pleasantly surprised. I expect they will really take off now that they have more room to grow. At this point - if all goes as planned and we all know what happens when mice and men plan things - we will be going to flower in a week and a half or so. getting EXCITED!
Well, I found a new app for my ipad for a grow journal and it looks pretty awesome so I am going to be playing with it today. Yes it looks pretty awesome, but complicated soooooooo now to the 64 million dollar question today is:
****Can a nearly 60 year old woman conquer a complicated app? Yeah, I will let you know HAH
