2020 DownEast 8

Hey all.
Finally got my greenhouse at the new place situated to where I can get my girls out there.

The shade cloth will keep it about 80-90° through summer.
Plan on installing screen for SCROG next!


They kind of tried started to flower since they’re all grown up, but have a long way to go before a 12/12 light cycle can occur.

Sooo.
Sorry for the month long wait. The greenhouse idea was a bust. They all started flowering despite still being under grow lights 19/5, so I took the shade cloth off. They never reverted. The oxidation on the poly panels is filtering so much light they were not going back to veg. I dug them all out and transplanted in soil in the yard. They all took a pretty big hit recovering from that time wise but they’re bouncing back.
Pics to come.

What a pain!

Yes! A real pain. They‘ve slowly bounced back reverting to veg and focusing on growth instead of recovery. Unfortunately they reall stretched too so I have support installed.

The other was found in a sample bud I got from my local dispensary during their open house on 4/20 so she’s a couple months behind her big sister and in a different garden with our potatoes.

You will have to post pictures of your new place when you get settled in,is it as big as your old place?shame you moved you loved your old place and you’d been there a while,it must be a lot more work preparing a new place from scratch, I hope it’s far from prying eyes for you,you are still doing plenty of strains I hope they do well for you

Both the property & home are slightly smaller. There is an invasive plant called Japanese knotweed along the edge of where I plowed up a plot in spring. I didn’t know it’s rhizomes would travel beneath the surface & end up sprouting here, there, and everywhere. We’ll move it next year. Same with a raised bed I built right on the property line. If we didn’t rip the knotweed out weekly it would completely overtake the all the crops in that bed. The potatoes are further away from that crap & unaffected by it. I abut forest, but aside from the thickly tree lined boundaries with my other neighbors there are no trees on our yard.
We have had persistent issues with several species of rodents trying to nest in the ceilings above our bedroom, kitchen & bathroom since moving here. Between chipmunks, red squirrel, & mice, I’ve been snap trapping and plinking about 12/week outdoors.
Out of ideas, I ended up calling the local wildlife control bureau to explain to my elderly neighbors that wild animals don’t really need them emptying 5 gallon buckets of sunflower seeds into their 25+ bird feeders daily or dumping roasted peanuts in the shell all over the ground.

Sounds like you’re missing the old place lol it looks like you’ve been working really hard at your new place,it’s going to take some work to get it the way like it but I know you love a bit of hard work and you thrive on a challenge so I’m sure in no time at all ,all your hard work will pay off and you’ll have things just the way you like them brother
