      Update 46: November 12, 2021 Week 6 Day 5
      Let the fattening begin. 2 ½ to 3 weeks to go. I’ve started cleaning them up a bit and will continue to spread them out as much as possible in the time they have left. Projected harvest date is December 1st.

        Looking kind of sparse in there Got a bud count on the 'nana kush? It exploded, in a good way. Looks like nice Christmas gifts in someone's future.

        You are spreading them out by tying wire on them and pulling to the side, nothing else?

        Ckbrew - yep just keep tightening the wires up and adding more as needed to help keep them pulled apart.

      I hope you have some help lined up for harvest ol' feller! This is going to be a monster yield.

      Holiday Treats indeed!!!
      I grow exclusively in large pots using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
      My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
      I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
      Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!

        Sorry, I don't have an exact count on either plant but it's about 50 flowering branches per plant. At this point my estimate is that I will see a final harvest off of these two that weighs in somewhere in the neighborhood 1.5 and 1.8 lbs dried and cured. I'd be thrilled with more but we will see what time avails. I have 1/2 a pound set aside for oil and already have planned holiday gifts of 1/2 pound; still leaves me a goodly amount to smoke until the next harvest. ALL GWE MEMBERS show up with your membership cards for a free pre-roll by January 1st!

          BU2B's PPP Method v2.0 update - update
          Due to the fact that I have not received any requests for BU2B's PPP Method V2.0 as well as the fact that I've tried to cover the things I wanted to update in the original in this journal and as life has happened since I first made the post of v2.0 being available by January 1, 2022; the v2.0 update has regrettably been put on hold for the foreseeable future.

          If you have questions and I'm still here; please feel free to PM me which will send me an e-mail and I will do my best to answer your query.

            Update 47: 11.14.21 Week 7 Day 1 •42 Days in •Approximately 14 Days remaining
            Here comes the final countdown and I’m getting a little excited about harvest. The Cannabrushes have been ordered and should be here tomorrow and the girls are getting a fresh tub change on Wednesday with ph’d water and Flawless Finish only until they are done. Harvest will be when the flowers are done and I’ve seen the final push on the majority of branches along with my preferred 5%-15% amber trichomes. It should be very close to my projected December 3rd harvest date made at the start of the grow.

            The Banana Kush has not filled in as I hoped she would but the buds are dense and have my whole house smelling like bananas - much to my wife’s dismay. The Chocolate Mint OG is just a pleasure for both the eyes and nose, Amazingly-Holy Crap-Oh Baby sweet and sticky. Both girls are at the magnet stage - which you will clearly see in the photos. I am completely OCD when it comes to hairs and fibers on my buds and this time in a grow I’ll be darned if they aren’t pulled to my plants from across the universe! Time to get the tweezers and magnifying glass.

            Anyway, on with the show - here are the girls in their fiber coated glory proudly showing off their nice toasty tips - freckles and all. I’ll leave you to decide who’s who 🥸

            Update 48: Nov 15, 2021 Week 7 Day 2
            I changed out tubs one day earlier than originally planned. Water level was low in the tubs so I just went ahead and did their final tub change. Both girls will get nothing but ph balanced water and Flawless Finish from here on out. They’re looking happy and healthy and already bringing me lots of smiles. From this point on I will begin to daily remove leaves that have grown out of buds and start slowly cleaning them up and removing excess foliage in preparation for harvest.

              Ckbrew you got it buddy. Just cleaned CM OG up this morning before the lights went off. Planning on doing the same to BK as soon as the lights are back on. I’ll get some pics and post them before the day is up.

              Ckbrew to be quite honest, I probably would have had more harvest weight if I had not allowed so many branches to grow. 48 flowering branches are easier to spread out, will get fuller colas and still insure a pound per plant. Around 38 flowering branches with around 6 inches of total flower will be darn close to 16 0z’s.

            Locked and loaded. The harvest prep begins. If they’re good enough for the grouchyoldman they’re good enough for me.

                Update 49: 19, November 2021
                Wow! That was fast! Hard to believe it has already been 15 weeks since starting the grow. Yet, here we are down to the wire.
                It is going to be a crazy few weeks at our house so updates and photos may not be coming in any kind of regular fashion. Other obligations will be cutting everything pretty close to harvest and drying time. I will post photos of Week 8 Day 1 as usual however, after that date it may be rather sporadic until I wrap this grow up.
                Harvest and drying photos along with the final tally and dried and cured weight still to come. About 4 weeks for all of that to happen. Estimated timeline:
                • Harvest date November 29
                • Final weight and close of this Journal December 20
                —————————————-
                21 grams (wet weight) of popcorn bud samplers from cleaning out undergrowth (about 9 grams dry)

                  Thanks

                Just because it's Saturday... I don't know if any of you ever listened much to Simon & Garfunkel but this (in my opinion) is THE BEST rendition of Sound of Silence - since the original. It's rather oldish and even though about as far as I get into metal music these days is Nine Inch Nails and I'm not really a fan of being yelled at -> THIS version by Disturbed is just amazing.
