I'm new here obviously and I just wanted to take a few minutes to dive into this new (to me) community. A little about myself and how I got here. Again. I'm from the east coast, I'm old enough to remember how severe being caught with a joint was in the 80's, my hobby is leather working with exotics and because my 'give-a-damn' is busted I'm fresh out of given. I haven't smoked reefer since high school, in fact I've grown to hate it. The smell, the culture the stigma etc etc. Fast forward 30 years, I find myself with a medical issue that I can't afford so I was left scratching my head and my thumb up my ass. By sheer luck, (usually the only luck I have is bad) I find a no-frills fold top baggie with 3 bright green nuggets inside. Thinking back on that find I must admit it was choice bud. So me with my thumb up my ass sat on the edge of my bed one afternoon, appetite shot again because of the stomach churning pain. Keep in mind this was a few days later. I opened my dresser drawer and caught a wiff of the weed I found. I put 2 and 2 together in my head and grabbed the baggie. I smoked a pea sized amount because I really didn't enjoy my last reefer session. Then again who would smoke up WHILE I in a facility of "forced confinement"? This idiot, that's who. I let the high roll on slowly. Grabbed another pea sized amount. And another. Munchies would all me to eat, Finally! Where I live isn't so nice. Not joking, I've seen a half dozen dead bodies in the last two weeks alone. Most are OD's but two gun deaths and a stabbing death isn't any better. I have to walk thru this area every time I need new green. I'm not built for fighting any more. Hell, I don't even like verbal arguments. Went shopping online for a grinder. Stumbled upon the Kind Cannabis vape, then found an entire industry I never knew existed. Fast forward 30+ hours, my eyes are bulging, I have a twitch in my neck, I'm in a pool of urine, with 273th cup of coffee in one hand and my credit card in the other I'm ready to spend everything I have!
I crash off the coffee and get some sleep. Once I’m recovered and alert, I start making a list in my head of everything I’ll need to make my first grow a success. Lights, timers, space to grow, loafy soil, PH testers, CO2 meter, etc etc. Ebay, Amazon, Newegg, I start checking everywhere for the best prices.
My list starts with one check mark, then two, then six. I ordered the seeds, hit the button my various internet shopping carts to complete the sales and here I am.
(I sincerely hope everyone reads this with a bit of humor. Obviously I didn’t piss myself or stay up for 30 hours, all just over-exaggeration. Laughs are how I break the ice and I hope this gave everyone a good chuckle. Believe it or not this is 100% what lead me to here).
I do have one question if anyone is willing to grace me with an answer.
If you cant get Bergmans, what other fertilizer is recommended for the DEA pack?
If I violated a rule or if this isn’t supposed to be posted here I sincerely apologize.
