Good morning folks. I’ve been absent for a couple months. Finally got the last hay in the barn. Season is over and I’m relieved of that.
I’ve been delinquent in my garden updates but better late than never I guess.
My 2 ILGM Jack Herers’ “the Jackies” have exceeded all growth expectations. If you remember I was topping and scrogging one to maintain a stealth crop. I learned quickly who was really in control, and it wasn’t me.
Here are some recent pics
I parked the mule trailer behind garden to hide better from road Jeesh!
This was a couple weeks ago. I’m in there somewhere
The Au Naturelle girl is doing beautifully. about 7.5’…that’s a lotta stealth She is building great bud and should be ready in a couple weeks.
Mylittle topped and scrogged girl La Toppa had other ideas about her growth. She has turned into an enormous butterball. She is a few weeks later than AuNaturelle due to the topping and manipulation she had to deal with. I’ve decided that this method is pointless for me. She is putting on lots of bud, but I think I will get lot’s and lot’s of small popcorn stuff. Good for Keef I guess.
If you remember that I went on vacation a week in end of May and bought @Blumat carrot watering devices. They worked well that week and to my surprise I am utilizing them 100% this last month in my watering duties. The 10 gallon fabric pots are so root bound and solid that the water must be administerred almost drop by drop. The Blumats are delivering 2.5 gallons a day to each plant, a drop at a time and keeping them healthy and happy.
Light is getting shorter. Harvest will be upon me soon. I am excited. And from here on out i plan to take the more natural methods for growing and not try to control the plants artificially. Mother nature knows best. Au Naturella is absolutely more robust and building MUCH bigger colas over all and weeks ahead of the other plant. I’ve learned my lesson well. @highcountrygal, I am in your camp,…natural growing is the way to go in my world too
