Thanks MS Calamity it was not cheap. But it will all pay off in the long run. I lost 1of my WQ’s to the bud rot issue I was having. All the work and when I looked at them yesterday she had rot on all main colas. Chopped and the other1had very little. My Caramels are still ok.

Hey @Dhooter! Sorry for late response. Also sorry to hear of your bud rot issues :disappointed: Glad to hear you still have the Caramel left! What caused the rot? Was it humidity? Can anything else cause it? :thinking:

Hey all!

Sorry I’ve not been around much. I’ve had a couple of weeks off work but it’s been non-stop! I’m exhausted.
My car failed it’s MOT for the first time ever. It failed on emissions so now I can’t drive it unless it’s to a garage to get fixed :sob::sob::sob:

Also my neice ended up in A&E the other day for taking a few too many aspirins… intentionally! :disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved: she’s 14! :cold_sweat:
I’m trying to spend more time with her as she seems to have a lot going on right now. I’m a bit scared for her and I’m not too good at handling mental health issues at this level - especially on someone so young. I’m sure she will be ok, she just needs a change of environment occasionally.

Ok so moving on to less depressing matters…! here’s some snaps of my Lady Blue - I think we’re almost there!!! :hugs::hugs::hugs:

I’m thinking another flush with water then chop end of this week or early next week - whaddya reckon, guys?

CJ. :v:

Sending you lot of good vibes :peace_symbol:

And for that lovely lady, personally, I would wait at least another week… :nerd_face:

Better days are ahead. I have a 14 yr girl and always the drama. Well I chopped the white queen. She has way to many leaves to let her get soaked. The humidity is supposed to be in the mid 90s. The 2 caramels have been loosening a lot of leaves, they we’re about 2 weeks behind the WQ. Lots of shakes and no sleep for a couple of days.

@kaptain3d Oh man, you’re killing me! :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:
We’re on week 14 now (from seed), I was hoping to be done by the end of this week. It’s ok though as it actually gives me more time to get another good flush in. :+1::+1:
Now, this one smells sooo good! It’s actually crystally as well - for the first time ever in my growing attempts so far!

Thanks for the good vibes, Kap. I certainly need some of those right now :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Sad face. It’s great that she had you thinking of her, even if it’s not your strong suit. Mental health is tough. My 13 year old was brought to a psychiatrist (by her mom) to get meds for depression and anxiety. I’m not willing to let her be prescribed crap like that yet.

Being a 13 year old is hard enough, but her mom’s house isn’t an easy place to live, and transitioning to the high school… during covid…

I got her to mom to agree we’d try CBD before pharma, and maybe wait till the world feels a little less crazy. If we ever get back there.

Your buds look out of this world. As torturous as the wait to chop feels, I agree with Kap. 1 week to perfection.

Hope life settles down! Good luck

I’m basing my suggestion on the fact that there are still plenty of clear trichomes and a lot of white, straight pistils sticking out still… :nerd_face:

But I feel your anticipation, she’s really beautiful :star_struck:

Prayers lifted Ms CalamityJane :slight_smile: That’s a lot to be carrying. Don’t worry about “being good at” talking to someone about mental health issues. Just be YOU, and just being there is probably doing more good than you could even have imagined. Showing genuine concern/care, a listening ear and love. Reinstating repeatedly how valuable her life is to everyone around her, and how much it should be to her.

The ladies are looking lovely as always :slight_smile: :heart:

@Underthestairs Thanks man. She actually phoned me in floods of tears, I ended up taking her to hospital but thankfully she was just having a massive panic attack rather than any actual effects from the aspirins. Glad she felt like she could phone me though! Yeah and I agree, I don’t particularly want them plugging her with depression meds as such a young age.

Oh do you really think so?! Thank you :relaxed::relaxed:
This is defo my best attamept so far! :grin:

Being there for them is everything. I used to work as a mental health specialist on a locked psych unit, the one thing I recognized over two and a half years as the #1 difference between people who attempt to hurt themselves and people who succeed… is the people who succeed have no family support.

And yes ma’am, I think them buds look wonderful. I’m getting itchy palms swing all these seeds popping all over the forum. Waiting on a bigger tent because I just got a way bigger light. It’ll be my turn soon enough.

Ah ok thank you. I thought they were mostly cloudy but that’s probably just my excitement getting in the way! :sweat_smile::sweat_smile: and yes, agree still a few white pistils.

Thank you :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

It’s tough being 14, I’ll be praying for her. I have 14 year old as well, and she can be fierce and vulnerable at the same time. Completely understand.
Plants look good as well, keep on keeping on there.

Don’t know what to say about the wee one CJ other than wish her well from us :pleading_face:. Your car however I can help with. It could be as simple as taking the air filter out and taking it for a retest. Filter could be dirty/choked :face_with_monocle:

So sorry to hear about your car troubles, and with your niece, if you need help, just holler. I’m trained in suicide prevention, so if you want any help in what to say or do, I’m here for you OK?

And on your beautiful lady, I’d let her get more cloudy and fat tops on those trichs.

You rock! :heart_eyes:

Thanks, Mr Grower! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Yep, you’ve hit the nail on the head there! Very feisty but oh so fragile. She’s feeling better now and she came over for dinner last night. So for now, she’s steady. :relieved:
