IBeautiful plants! I’m in SE Mass, trying to get my three Afghan Kush over the finish line with I’d guess a week to go. Have had to fight caterpillars, mildew, spider mites and bud rot. Now I know why my buddy in the industry says commercial outdoor grows in Massachusetts will not be successful, it’s like dealing with the ancient plagues of Egypt, LOL. Fortunately I’ve caught all these issues as soon as they crop up and I haven’t lost more than 1% of the crop so far.
Mildew and bud rot have been kept mostly at bay with a few applications of peroxide, the latest today after I found limited bud rot on my biggest cola (pic below, after I cut out the bad section). Captain Jack took care of the bugs. At about 40-50% brown pistils on the higher up flowers and thinking I have about a week left before harvest. Just now seeing some amber trichomes through the microscope, and am looking to get at least one of the plants overripe for nighty-night effect and high CBD content, so maybe a couple weeks for that one.
Given that the weather forecast for the next week calls for more unseasonably warm temps, I’m actually thinking of pulling the girls into my air-conditioned sunroom for the duration and keeping them cool and dry. Thoughts?
