Hello there, fellow Irish and Welsh heritage.
I’ve created this topic because I feel the need to share my experiences and tribulations with this year’s and other year’s grow, without clogging up the main topic threads with non-relevant comments.
My Road to Being a Covert Cannabis Grower
I emigrated from England in 2009 to live in a rented tumbledown cottage and 1+1/2 acres of scrubland, field rushes and bog in the north of Ireland.
Things were tough but I managed to survive until I took a stroke (Irish for stroke: a wee touch) in 2012. All of the progress I made on the land soon reverted back to rushes, rushes and more fecking rushes.
For a year I wallowed in my misfortune and embraced the black depression.
Then by chance, I found a way forward and inspiration through woodworking with a scroll saw:
Just as I was getting really good and ready to make some real money; a second stoke/touch occurred.
This one was rated as mild.
To fecking who?
It was devastating.
Feck the advice, which while informative, had been totally useless.
It’s was time to be a Sapper.
My first experience of cannabis was in 1976 when I was 21 years old and on a wild birthday party in Belize City. It was indescribable. However, due to heavy army penalties, I didn’t try it again.
Fast forward to 2017.
During a Happy Hour smoke break, I was offered part smoke in a joint.
I got a buzz.
The smoke was rank and I didn’t feel happy.
And this was the “BIG BANG”.
