I started to realize, as I went to the west coast on a visit, the real reason that we (at least me) grow cannabis. I purchased several strains while I was there (little kid in the candyshop routine) and I compared with my homegrown stash. My home state is almost religously against pot. I could not believe that I preferred my own grown weed to the “good” stuff. I immediately figured that it was just because it was my own product and I was a little biased. I took some of my own grown to a gathering and had several people compare mine to to store bought. I did not tell them what I was doing and was amazed that almost everyone except one liked my Super Silver Haze WAY better than any other sativas they compared with. Made me realize that all the love that we tend to put in our grows actually has makes a difference in a good outcome.
I had been told previously that my WW was way better than what was available on the market here. I didn’t give it much thought at the time but now realize that the care we put into our plants shows in the results.
That’s enough to get me growing again in the fall. I want to try some blueberry in a small (2x4x5) tent and mainline it. The SSH came out really great despite the fact that I did not get to finish the last part of it (thanks Barnburner for finishing for me!). I am a dedicated grower now and can’t wait for the weather to turn so I can set up for a long winter grow inside.
Ya’ll take care and stay safe !
