      ROTFLMFAO - so much for Saturday being the centerfold pic!🤣

    Grow timeline final report: 13/14 May 2022
    The lights will be going out in a few hours and with that I'll post my final photo's of the grow until after harvest. It's supposed to be in the 90's f here tomorrow so the tent is going to be staying open for their final day. I don't think they're gonna pop any seeds in 24 hours, the grow room is dark-ish and I'll get a chance to look them over and take photographs documenting their last day. Harvest will be on Sunday. Depending on how I'm feeling afterwards and how sticky my fingers are, it may be Tuesday or later before I post any final photo's and harvest pics. Final Grow images with Light On/Light Off (flash) are coming up in just a few hours. Until then here is the final grow timeline report from my end - PLEASE stay tuned TOKABIGONE 'S grow is yet to finish up and final grow weight and documentation yet to come!

      Nobody Does It, Quite The Way You Do... Bravo Maestro, Respect.

    As the clock is ticking and new leaves are growing as I type I suppose I should post a few photo's of the girls in their relative nakedness with nodes exposed.

    Harvest Day!: 15 May 2022



    A friend and I started trimming at 9 am this morning and finished up at around 5:30 - 17 man hours later. I’m just tossing a few pics out since I just got my hands cleaned up. I may do some re-arranging before I’m done - but here are the results of your 4.5 months of patience.

    I think my estimate is going to be close 🤞
    That's two full 4 foot long bundles of buds or a total of 2.44 meters of trimmed bud bunches for those not hopelessly american.

      Very nice work my brother! I did not trim to achieve PPP this time as I wanted to let my one plant do it's own thing tho I did FIM it. Going forward I will be giving more attention to my training as the results are obvious in BU2B's grows. Can I produce an equal quantity in living soil? I think so! Harvest this time will be around the second week of June if the heat doesn't force me to go earlier! BU2B has 17 man hours invested in his harvest. I'm sure mine will take me at least an hour!

        It does look really good. Now I need to get cherry tomatoes, the pugs love them. Normally there's an abundance of free ones but this year people will probably save everything they can can.

          Thanks to the Arizona humidity for a rapid drying time. In 4 weeks this sweet pair will be ready for consumption. Thanks to everyone for tuning in!

            Looks delicious!

          So now BU2B is gonna get ETS although he is always so busy he should survive till Fall, lmao! My CM lady is starting to show her age now with slowly yellowing lower fans. She is a tough old gal having survived my early fumbles with watering (Not Enough!). Time for me to start taking a serious look at trics! She is plodding along taking her own sweet time as she stacks and fattens her flowers. They are very firm and sticky now so I'm in no rush. I'll take the larger colas when they are ready and leave the rest of a hundred smaller buds to finish up in their time. I'm won't even hazard a guess on finish weight right now. OK maybe 4 oz of flower but hope for 6? She is very typical of the CM strain in structure and fat firm buds! This grow was not my finest hour but I pulled one thru to finish and that always excites me! Looking forward now I'm really hoping to start my grow for seed first, product second Sativa Landrace strains while there are a few left so I or my followers can experience the old school genetics that got a lot of us started using if not growing. It's a project I will never finish but maybe leave a legacy for someone. I'm sure there will be volunteers! I don't have any seeds for it yet and it seems I'll have to do the old cash in the mail over seas to get the regular seed I need to start which always makes me nervy with a couple hundred involved! Roll the dice and send it off to someone's bank account! I have some mighty tasty stuff in mind and I will NEVER HAVE TO BUY SEEDS AGAIN! That in itself makes it worth while to me to take the chance. I think The Vault Seeds in Scot is pretty reputable, I hope !?

          This one is for you Puglover1 lmao! My cherry tomatoes are trying to bloom and I've pinched off several but I think that's it for training on her! She is gonna move out to the front south facing porch for full sun all day! Nites are now upper 60's, low 70's. I saw a post from you somewhere inquiring about the results of a full grow in such low humidity (average 20%). I always used to fight it with a fogger humidifier, buckets with towels, extra pots soaked with water, etc. BU2B never worries about it, he tells me, so I tried it this time and seemingly no problem. Maybe if I were a large scale farmer I would pay more attention but for 2 or 3 plants at a time in an enclosed space not so much. Were the situation reversed with too high RH, it would be a serious issue!

            So much frost and lotta a lowers for second harvest, nice rescue. I'd like to not keep filling a small humidifier if you guys grow fire in low RH.

            I should be selling my KingLED panels, the weather here is crazy. Sixty-two degrees Inside my house last night, rain today, 88F tomorrow and rain for Saturday. Sixties for the start of next week, then more rain. I should be growing bell peppers and a baby tomato in the small closet. Could be a repeat of 2019 when all 102 counties were declared a Federal AG disaster, given the food prices and shortages it makes sense, this year. I'm hoping for a drought to save $ on lawnmowerman. I have city water before the meter and a hose through a basement window to water anything outside with 200' of hose.

            Had a drought in 2012, year after a destructive derecho. I had already planted 3 new little trees, I kept them alive in a yard that looked like it belonged in the AZ desert. Three tomato plants in big pots, the leaves looked like hell but the tomatoes were fine. I later used those pots for my Mag grow, maybe they have a magic touch.

          His estimate for amber currently around 5%

            Hi guys! A big thank you to BU2B for posting my tric shots! I'm signed in on my phone which lets me do the same thing just not as easy. I was surprised to see about 90% cloudy and 5% amber! That is exactly where my tastes lie! So now I have the decision to make whether to chop or no. I'll be away for a few day from Sunday to Wednesday so now I'm nervy about them drying too fast! I think I've decided on a plan. Turn off the lights and put the pots on risers in the small bath with a few inches of water below and a small fan to increase RH from ambient 20% to around 40%. They should dry slower that way is my thinking so no harm in leaving for a few days. BU2B tells me the trics continue to ripen for a week after chop so that is a word of wisdom to remember when you are trying to hit that perfect level of readiness! This means I am drying on the trunk which should slow the process a little. I know some do dry this way and I did once on 2 plants and they were good. This would then preclude a 2 stage harvest and I lose weight. That's my problem... the floor is open for opinions. Thank you!

              Could you cut the top half of the plant that's ready and hang the whole thing over the bath? Let the rest finish up. Last harvest I dried at 55-60% rh, it took about 9 days, that was individual branches. Can you do a trial run on the bath to see how high the humidity will get?

            Hey Smoklahomathat's where my thinking is going cuz 4 oz ain't gonna make it to Christmas! And I've had the swamp cooler running on high last 4 hours with most of the other vents closed off. Right now at 41% with ambient at 10% so it's getting there. If I can get it to 50%I'll be very pleased! 45 will work tho! Somewhat cooler the next week (75-80 degrees). So RH will come back to 20. Thanks for the reply bud!

I whacked off her head! Wet weight 32.78 gr. Maybe 1/4 oz dry for first harvest. Hoping the rest will fatten to an oz! Won't add to the larder but we'll get a taste.

              Had to show my drying room using the evap cooler with all vents shut but the small bath. Got it up to 50% RH with ambient at 20%. Just right for a slower dry! About a week I think. Click image for larger version
