          Maybe one day lol

        Transplanted these last night and just showing off the delightful roots. These pots rock! I have a friend who always finds random useful odd things and he sent me the last photo today thinking we can make our own. He has a bunch of this stuff and will update how they come out.

          The shortest is a iced grapefruit. The other 2 are the GG#4 photos. I, or I should say mom, have 3 mos left of growing. The tallest is a GG at 7 1/2’+ tall. They were all started the same time and this is the first time in this location. Ends up there’s not enough sun there. Depending on if I have my CBD license next yr, but if I don’t they’ll all go to different spots. Electric guy came out today and parked close to where they are and made us a bit paranoid....lol. We need to stake and bend Bertha over. I can see her from my porch 100yds away. Thx spider for the seeds. Hope she can kick you ass in our personal competition....lol. Love ya bro

            I'll post to this since you Retodd called me out. You can do better than I did, well your mom can. The gorilla glue was 7.7 ounces per plant when divided by two. The 4x4 tent totaled 40 ounces. So you got this. Sorry I'm not around much anymore. I'm fine. If you want to talk to me PM me. To much going on now to be here.

            Mother nature don't hold back hoping we all finish without mold issues. Our temps are in the 90s dry gonna start cooling a few degrees shortly. That first pic could be me Retodd that's what 2 mama mia look like. I gotta feeling there going into the greenhouse tent come late sept. Keep it stealthy peace.

            SoOrbudgal I’m in KY and the temp is the same here. Dealt with a lot of rain last yr and bud rot. It’s been a better season this yr. Still had to chop a grapefruit from rot, but not a lot of airflow where they were planted. It was a first time growing in that location ever. I’ll come up with a better spot next yr if I grow outside again.

          no update today I didn't get into the GH I was out in the woods doing 3 week defoles on plants,oh we had one plant hermie on us strange seeing balls this time of year

            The seeds I used this year were seeds from grows where they where stressed out and got seeds so I was looking for it ,to bad it was a 6 footer

          So apparently my auto fruit punch hermied slightly on me. I found 2 viable looking seeds in my first jar that I busted up to make some concentrates. If my understanding is correct, these seeds will also be feminized autos that have a very high chance of herming on me again? Or is there worse that could happen if I grow these out?

            Yes but the pollen could have came from an outside source,,,,,
            I would plant them outback,,,

          I was staring at this stem and thought holfy fxxx thats a long stem 5 feet 4 inches from bud to stock ,I have 1/4 of her left to defole and one other plant then the three week defole is done

            smashing is helping, not seeing so many now

          I started to set up the security system ,installed cameras and was running the video/power line and ran out of wire the premade ones were only 60 feet ,so I figured that I would just couple two wires together all I needed were some connectors for the coax cable 3 stores later I came home and ordered them on line.4x 150 feet for 45 saves me alot of mcgivering lol

              oldjarhead100 That's why I grew autos with my photos this summer outdoors. We were also running low on stash. I'm trying for 3harvest of autos outdoors this summer, 2 sets of 2 are jarred and got 2 more still growing they are now in the greenhouse do to rain last couple days. Way to go lurking I just love fresh bud after the cure. My garden is getting real stinky

              And it isnt the 10ish tomater plants they are sitting beside 😁

            Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying the tail end of summer and getting out there to enjoy mother nature.

            Things are moving along in the garden. Still no final weight for the Grapefruit because a good chunk of it is still slow drying but I can tell it's a lot better quality and more g per plant vs blackberry.

            The blue dream is still chugging along. in hindsight I screwed up the LST because now everything is so close together:

            But I'm keeping RH low and air flow high to try and make sure I dont get bud rot. Top left plant is getting pretty chunky:

              Sorry for the name mix up Ocgreen ,I use a auto watering system now but when I watered by hand I treated it like dirt and watered every few days when it needed it ,then flush once a month ,although I feel the watering 4 times a day has really made a difference in size and quality and setting up the auto system was easy ,
              Watering to run off does require plant trays and risers in the trays ,Htgsuply.com was the cheapest Ive found they were like under 3 bucks a couple of well placed bricks works well to , I bought a small wet vac and suck the water out until I set up my auto drain if you want directions for building either one let me know just to much stuff to write if not interested lol

              Hey oldjarhead100 np and thanks for offering to provide more details. I took your advice and ordered a bunch of 13" plant risers for a few bucks each and some saucers at dollar store. And then I was out with my son at hardware store and was really happy to find a 15 gal 6hp shop vac with stainless steel tub for only $90 CDN. Never occurred to me but this will also be really helpful when I need to empty a DWC tote with multiple plants. Works great and I'm happy with price

              Will let you know if I need more info on that auto system. Sounds like something I should pursue at some point but too many things on to do list already to look at it right now. Thanks again

            Hey ocgreen yes I put elevator under pots and use those plastic rings for collecting run off saves your floor. You can get them at any plant section in the states there cheap under a buck. I mix my soil with coco coir so not seeing salts but OJ knows his coco

              Thanks 😊 I ended up grabbing some elevators, saucers and a shop vac for about a hundred bucks Canadian. Not sure I totally understand how much to water and when but I'm getting closer and plan to do some more reading tonight
