CA Fires Affecting Harvest

I’m dealing with heavy ash for the second time this season not sure if I should harvest now before it gets worse or should I ride it out looking for some input.
Thanks

These are about 6-7 weeks into Flower.

I recommend doing a peroxide wash after you harvest.

Yeah do a wash don’t pull em yet. Heck that ash is pure potash for them. I know they probably can’t breathe but when life gives you lemons. Wait maybe it get better.

we are getting ash here too there are a few fires around us, been a good year though generally. Fire risk is low compared to most summers.

Sadly, the ash you want is hardwood ash, most of that is softwood and dry grass.

Hopefully the fire’s will be over soon, sad to see people loseing homes and businesses, been seeing it on the news, Nice looking weed, it would be great if you can save it, I’m not exactly sure how ash will effect it growing, I can only imagine how hard it is to breathe in California right now,

You have my thoughts and prayers, I consider California as a very productive place for weed, I’m on the East Coast, and can grow pretty good! But you Guys got it going on! Some of the Best I’ve seen comes from California

Dude we are covered in forest!


Heres a fire in my back yard!We get massive fires in BC! But remember, most of our province is barely inhabited, so many fires burn all summer and fizzle out when the snow comes. 100 square mile fire is nothing for BC we get those every year. Ill bet there are hundreds of forest fires in BC this year. Most we never hear about. California is a different animal, there isnt many places that people dont inhabit in Cali. Most of the state is highly flammable and water to fight the fires can be scarce. Here we have large lakes and water bombers and helicopters with bladders. Our forest service is world class! When we arent fighting forest fires we help Cali, Oregon and Washington State. I was a snag feller for a fire jumper team for a couple seasons, it can be exciting and shitty all at the same time. The smoke is brutal, the heat and dehydration is also brutal. No, I really feel for the folks in Cali, its very scary to watch an orange and black monster heading your way. I wish them all the best.

I figured BC would be wet enough not to burn. That’s crazy they just burn till the snow comes. BC is beautiful. I’d move there.

Gonna make ash out of it anyway right?

I do have a thing for Canadian weed. I actually was looking at Canadian seeds last night. You recommend any strains. We used to get a lot of great weed from over the bridge from Detroit back in the early 2000’s.

it gets 100 American here in the summer! This is a huge tourist area. People come from around the world to summer here. What we get here is 4 distinct seasons. In the winter we do winter sports


The mountain behind my place is called Crowfoot Mountain and is some of the finest terrain in the world for snowmobiling and snowshoeing or back country skiing/ boarding.
The area is very 420 friendly!
Oh… this snow is anywhere from 12 to 15 feet deep!
Yall are welcome to come here and go snowmobiling anytime from November to March/ April.
