    I'll have to take a photo of the leaning trees next time I pass by for ya, a real quirk of nature.

    I must admit when I pulled it out of the box I had a WTF moment on the quality ... then it says 2/3 people for construction but as I was itching to get the seedlings in I decided I was gonna do it myself and being the independent kid that I've always been lol ... I did it without destroying the whole thing.

    It also said to bury the bottom in a trench but the ground is so bloody hard this time of year there was no way I was gonna break my back even trying to dig a shallow trench ... the soil is this dirty black clay that turns rock hard in summer with 1" cracks and turns to sticky muck in winter that lets you grow 1" in height if you walk on it long enough.

    Really happy I had that stash of blocks laying around from an old garden bed to weigh it down ... already put it to the test with 45 knot winds ... didn't move an inch.

    thats just cool to see if your not expecting it make you say WTF lol I will have to look around that looks well built , My wife bought one and it was the cheapest piece of crap I've ever seen it didn't survive the set up lol

    how are ya oldjarhead ... the dimensions are in metres.
    If the pots were all of the four litre size it would easily hold 90 ... that's 24 in the cart as it is.
    Mature, probably no more than four if they were big producers, ten to twenty in the smaller range.
    Not far from me is a patch of coast where the trees have the same lean as the stakes ... the prevailing winds just hammer them non stop.

    hey tripper good morning I like the green house how big is it you gave dimensions of 2x2x4 is that meters or feet and how many plants does it hold. I was in a place once that all the trees looked like your stakes lol I dont think the wind ever stopped looking good but outside grows are over here, I am in a legal state and I grow outside every year usually I do gorilla grows in the woods but after the dismal yield this year if I can grow in my yard I'm going to

    Thought I'd show how nicely the greenhouse has been to my tomatoes too ... put them out in the shade house this morning ... will let them acclimatise for a couple of days before going in the ground.

    Oct 05 ... there's a Capsicum in there too. All heirloom varieties. I passed a few onto others so what you see in this tray is more than the next couple of pics ... that's some Violet seedlings in the bottom tray.

    Re-staked the plants with home made untreated pine stakes. Started out as 2x4, then cut down to ~10mm square on a table saw and sharpened on the belt sander.

    Now for the so called Big Sativa ... here is #2 with the first hairs breaking through. I was suss on this variety anyway before any balls or hairs showed as the leaves had some width to them which was indicating that there was some Indica in the mix somewhere.

    Morning trip, what an excellent project you have going on, everything looks great, can't wait to watch the rest of your grow. Good Luck
    I love a good project ... and I'm always up for a bit of civil disobedience.
