It’s been a few years since I’ve posted here. I wonder how many of my old friends are around. I learned most of what I know about growing from this forum. Now, probably 10 - 12 grows and pounds of quality cannabis later, I thought I’d come back and check it out - and journal my summer grow.
These were given to me as clones in solo cups. It was too early to plant outside when I got them (still getting into the 30’s f at night) so I kept them inside. I purposely tried to slow down their growth. I waited longer than normal to transplant from the solo cups to a bigger pot. All in hopes of slowing them down.
Anyway, they’re in the ground now and starting to grow fast. I’m trying something I haven’t done before, which is to SCROG outdoors. In New England, the end of the season can be scary. It’s cold, windy, and rainy. Every year I fight with mold and plants falling over because the big duds get weighted down with water. I’m hoping SCROG will help. Plus, I have nothing to lose. Based on what I learned here I have so much bud on hand I cold totally lose this crop and still not run out of smoke. However, I have no doubt I’ll get to harvest this fall. I’ve also put some chicken wire around the garden to keep dogs out when friends bring them over. My dog won’t walk on them but I can’t trust others to be as careful.
I’ll try to post weekly updates if people care to follow along.
I also have a new order of Bubble Gum seeds from ILGM I’ll grow soon.
