    I didn't get much done yesterday for work I had a date with my Granddaughter we picked blueberries,then made pancakes ,cut up some watermelon and fed the rinds to the chickens , then went to a family day at the park a friend puts on to thank vets, pretty good time for free, so anyways my GD wanted a smiling Tiger painted on her face ,once she got that she completely ran out of steam ,didn't want ice cream, didnt want to check anything else out ,just wanted to go home lol we met her parents there so thats what they did ,when we got home at 3 I checked everything out, I was worried because of the heat and humidity index but they pulled though just fine

      Harvested part of the unknown auto tonight. Hopefully it's tangerine dream, it doesn't smell like weed, but more like fruity pebbles or fruit punch. Still have the rest of the plant ripening another week. Hope this wasn't a bad idea, but it saves me from having to buy more to hold me over. Tried to only remove what was blocking the buds left on the plant.

        Can't believe the weight, two entire auto duck plants only weighed about 60g-70g after trimming. Note to self, don't grow first plant using your most expensive seeds.

        MmmHmmml3 Love your "note to self" comment. Best advice I ever received about growing weed was to grow a couple of tomato plants first, and do all the science experiments on them. If you fry 'em, no big loss.
        I still experiment on the tomatoes in our yard, and I've been growing weed for "awhile".

      Here I set a day (or 2) late and dollar (or so) short,, it has been a rough week, my favorite Aunt passed which meant a road trip into an illegal state. That made for one tough day, but as soon as we got back into OK we stopped and got some meds! (GG4, nice must add to the seed list). It will not be to long before I am the eldest of my clan,,,
      These pics taken Sunday, The CG went though a bit more training (just pulling and tying down), the Headbanger well she does not like the heat, poor choice for outdoor (or for a new grower). The BB3 is doing well, that twisted leaf is on the RG,,, and typing about the RG just look at her! Now what would all you guys and gals do with her? A friend was looking at her, stepped around for another angle, and then down inside the plant gently moving branches to the side "damn that IS just 1 plant!"! Well it is 2 plants that were to close to separate, so close they look to have grown together, for me I see 2 different phenotypes with 1 having purple stems to the leaf. then the Widow Banger she is doing well, looking forward to seeing just what this cross will do!

        Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

        Growing indoors is the only thing that will make me miss Canadian fall/winter. Those cold night temps help quite a bit!

            That does look really good!

          I need some quick advice. Should have mentioned it previously, but didn't realize it just now. Planning to let the partially harvested auto sit for another week or so.

          It's sunny next 2 days and then 80% thunderstorms till auguest 2nd. I know it sets the plant back a couple days or so when I cut some off.

          What I need to know is if it makes sense to just harvest the rest now. Will the buds get any better during the two sunny days or will it just mostly be recovering?

            Your buds will continue to ripen.
            It as a staged harvest (take the ripe upper colas, leaving the lower colas to finish)
            Just, dont let them get wet

            Good luck

            Thanks, will chop it tomorrow night to avoid a week of storms.

          Sooo, I’ve been gone 4 days aaaaaand, my p98 responded vigorously to being topped! It’s like not only did she NOT miss a beat but actually excelled. I did a defol just now and I have to get some ties tomorrow because she is more than ready to make for some easy LST work. Super stoked. I think she’ll be a monster.🤞🤞lets hope. Well until next time...

            hey Juicy I was in lowes and I bought some fence ties (6 inch aluminum with a hook on the end ) in packs of 100,some even had a coating to cover the shafts ,under 10 bucks if you factor in the cost of wire its not bad for a replacement

            So my latest girls have all been topped - few strategically removed fan leaves - only LST I am doing is gently encouraging the branches to grow away from the center - for the later weeks to try and guard against mold and bud rot. Click image for larger version

              Looking nice. Down here in the southern US states it has been so wet and humid that inside, outside, in greenhouse and everywhere in between we have been having to work double time to prevent mold and bud rot. I'm hoping August will be dry like it normally is.

              Just to give you an example of how odd it has been last night was 58 degrees and it's only 81 right now. Usually the high is 95 plus and about 80 at night.

              Lol I'm not the one complaining. It's my plants.

            Harvested a Six Shooter auto today. No preliminary weights. I'll wait until its dried. But have a Girl Scout Cookies to harvest tomorrow.

              I learned this from Mother Nature, and it works

            I'm am going to try 2 plants in Coast of Maine soil next grow in 15 gallon air pots with 1 other plant in Fox Farms Ocean forest in a 10 gallon and a 7 gallon with Ocean Forest. The Coast of Maine says no nutrients needed with a 15 gallon pot so we will see. Cost almost twice as much as Fox Farms.

              When you run FFOF do you add anything to it? (e.g. extra perilite)

              I want to start some photos in soil so I can maintain a few as mothers.. bag of FFOF sitting in basement... but I have killed everything I ever tried to grow in soil.

            Hello All ! Found some time to jump on with some updates as time runs short real quick. All is going well with the spring /summer grow with the plants enjoying the sun and fun of summer. The 2 Acapulco Gold Gen -1 Clones outdoor are doing real nice considering temps have been 101*-102*. The autos, Gorilla Glue and White Cheez have been up posted and moved into "THE BOX" and will finish there. (Will start a seperate grow journal) My clones, Acapulco Gold Gen-2 "Bernadette" is almost ready for the tent and the other girls ready for the final pots and a nice location in the sun outside. The most interesting is my surprise re-veg Motel 6 on round 2. It is growing to beat the band and healthy as can be ! Attached some photos. 1st photo from 7/17 all others from 7/21. Enjoy! Good Growing !!
