    These work great empty, for bubbling up your compost tea.

    Mouth watering...

    Yes, very dry, and just the freezer. I will prepare the box next time and freeze the whole thing. Great yield, looks like Blonde Lebanese

    You are drying the trim/bud first correct? Freeze by dry ice or regular freezer. Nice.

    This is my first try with this and it works great.
    i lined the lid with parchment paper and fill the box with frozen bud. Use silkscreen fabric to separate the box from the top. Line the two up, turn over and shake the trichs into the lid. ( if bud falls all over the floor and you lose a pound of pot, your doing it wrong ). Good luck

    I’ve been using fly fishing line to tie my branches down. A simple knot won’t slip and it’s easy to untie. It cuts into the branch a little like anything does. A branch tied to this nail pulled the line so hard it bent the nail.

    A sled made from futon slats and heavy duty casters, with a 30" square piece of plywood on top for my tent to sit on. Most I've put is eight people in the tent to see what the sled can hold. No problem.
    Home Depot moving boxes, with fans, as a flowering chamber for a plant taller than my tent. Never put no people in that.

    Pridefully, previously posted pictures.

    I made a funnel hose setup for when topping off reservoir or for pouring out the few ounces left in the bucket when doing reservoir changes. There is a funnel every auto parts store in the U.S. I'm sure sells it is made with a long tapered spout that I've found stays connected to a piece of 1/2" I.D. irrigation hose with friction. Only down side to mine is the opening you pour into is a little small so need to watch how fast you pour into it. I do plan to add to this thread in next couple of days with pics of the different things I bought or made to make growing easier or more enjoyable and will add pic of my funnel then.

    I use a piece of an old garden hose and just spill it when I pour. Never thought of your idea for a funnel but I like it👍🏻

    An airstone to oxygenate water.
    12" of stiff irrigation hose pushed through and caulked into the lid of a flat, half gallon juice bottle. Makes for an easy watering to the plant in the back corner of my tent. I do half a gallon, per plant, then go back and give them another. It slows down the watering so less runs out.

    I think sometimes the answer to how to trim is- it depends. The last harvest I did, hand trimming was best due to the beautiful buds that were formed in some amazing shapes that I wanted to preserve, and did not need any trimming at the tops. The next harvest coming, the buds have almost no sugar on the sugar leaves, but plenty of them and are already a uniform shape. These would be ideal for a bowl trimmer.

    An inspiring story Poppa . I can relate. Thank you for sharing. Best wishes and good health to you.

    I have an innate need to be busy doing something productive every day it's what my daughter calls my ADHD. When I worked for a living I'd always say work smarter not harder when when finding the most efficient way to do a job/project. Now when friends or family ask why I did something a certain way I reply "Cause I'm Lazy". I can see where it could be quicker or more efficient to use a trim bag or bowl. But for me the spending 8 hours on average setting on my ass listening to music while hand trimming allows me to sleep at night knowing I've had another productive day on Earth. For reference and understanding let me say I learned back in 2010 or 11 my mentality shifted when I came face to face with the fact I will die from complications or from a side affect of COPD I would toss and turn at night mentally beating myself up anytime I was healthy but unproductive for wasting one of my remaining days. I'll end by saying I DO NOT plan to go any where soon and hope to be around and productive for another 10 years or so if lucky. We all have our own way of doing things.

    The probe floats in the reservoir all the time. The control only does above or below, not both. I have mine set to activate if the PH rises above 6.2. The control turns on the pericalastic pump and adds drops of PH down until it reaches 6.1then turns pump off. It usually floats down to 5.8 after pump turns off.
