    yeah man, im making the white bean soup with some of that stock
    so far, everything smells great
    my buddy deep fries the turkey on his back porch
    that cranberry dish your wife makes sounds rad!
    mrs chicky just makes fresh sauce from raw berries that she simmers on the stove with some sugar and stuff in it
    its great fun when everyone can chip in something and share
    so did you guys get to take home any leftovers

    its still kind of nice here, our nights get cold ( 50's) but teh days are still in the 70's
    we kind of slept in this morning and didnt hit the trails until like 9ish, but it was still kind of cold in some of the valleys
    we had a light rain a few days ago so the dirt was still super tacky

    def let the plant guide you throughout the grow

    i kind of have time frames i like to stick to but nothing is set in stone.
    /just like harvest times,i think of it more as windows of time to work in, not set dates

    for sure the top priority is keeping those lights on and you took a big step already this grow when you took your first cuts.
    it sounds like they clones are doing good so lets still hope for the best
    as long as they are green and plump,they are prob ok

    that way you can take only the best ones and let the others go

    so how was your thanksgiving guys?
    smoked turkey seemed to be on a lot of menus
    the night before, i could smell the air perfumed with the scent of turkeys being smoked
    mrs chicky and i went to a friends house who deep fries his
    we brought a bunch of sides as well as chickys home made cranberry sauce (my buddy likes it so much he would eat it by spoon out of the jar!)
    he also fried a turkey for us to take home and i have the bones and stuff simmering on the stove top right now

    keep it up fiddy and looking fore ward to the next update
    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    I'm thinking I'll pull the dome off on Sunday when I'm around to check on them frequently. Even if I have some week ones I'm just getting some experience and maybe they will pull through. I'm not planning on growing them out for a few months anyway so I'll probably be growing out cuttings of these cuttings by the time I know if any of them are any good. I'll be growing from seed on the next run and will get another chance to practice taking cuttings on those. I really want to get a good system down and some practice rather than relying on cloning to keep my tents full. I've gotten some experience on these and also learned that I shouldn't make too many decisions based on a schedule of taking cuttings but should let plant health determine when is the right time to take them. This time I think I was so focused on a schedule to get cuttings that I took them when the plants were still recovering from some droopiness. It's a technique I need to learn and get comfortable with but that will come with practice. More important for me is to focus on keeping the girls happy and healthy and keep the tents full and keep learning.

    Thanksgiving was good for me. I hung out with family and ate a shit load of food. My uncle does a bird on the charcoal grill and it always turns out great. I made and brought the mashed potatoes. I kept them pretty classic with just a little garlic and thyme and a lot of cream and butter. I always fill up on stiffing potatoes corn casserole green bean casserole ect.

    I like the trend of smoking turkey. I've always found turkey to be pretty bland and a little smoke really helps bring the flavor out. Oddly enough I've never deep fried one. I have a turkey firer that I use for doing fried chicken in during the warmer months. I hate do deep fry indoors my house smells like a fast food restaurant for days after.

    My wife always makes a cranberry dish as well. I think it has cool whip and nuts in it kind of like a Waldorf salad or something similar. The acid in the cranberries goes nice with all the rich sides and what not.
    You still making a bean soup with the turkey stock your making? Something warm like that sounds great today when it's cold and rainy.
    Pics and update tonight after lights on and watering.

    Sounds like fiddy may have a stellar first clone .
    If they are warm and damp 10 days does it for headband. You should be seeing roots soon.
    You may not be ready to do this but I just grab the.clone by the top, about day 10 and if the plug comes out I it's good if the clone comes out no roots it's not a good one and just discard it. Sometimes they may root slower and survive but I only want vigorous cuts. A puny seed could be the most interesting in the batch but weak clones not worth the space. Small personal growers like us have room only for A++ starts and strains.
    Good morning Rodehazrd.
    I hope your thanksgiving was great.
    The cuttings are 11 days old now and still nice and green. They seem no more or less perky than on day one. I haven't opened the vents yet or done anything other than a couple spritzes of water here and there. I'm going to give them a couple more days in their bubble and then pull the dome off when I can check them often. They seem to be happy in the dome, maybe too happy. I've read that they need to dry out a little to help force them to root.

    The moms are looking great and growing a lot. They seem to be digging the 600w. They will need water tonight so I'll probably get some pics and put up an update.

    how are your clones looking
    they are what, like at least a week or two old now?
    are they standing upright and the leaves still green?
    you should have a good idea by now what kind of strike rate to expect and i hope they all take

    agree with t-leaf, after a while you kind of get used to the same terp profiles and sometimes it helps to change up strains a bit
    another thing would be to change how you are smoking too
    sometimes just switching to a different pipe can bring back that spark
    or try smoking joints for a change of pace

    hpoe all is well wiht you and your family (that includes rufus too)!
    got big plans for thanksgiving?
    Good evening pop_rocks.
    Clones are looking pretty much like they did 9 days ago. They have some droop but aren't laying over against the side of the cups or anything. They are still nice and green too. If they were more upright I'd be happier but the fact that they still look like they did when I took them gives me hope that they aren't dyeing or anything. I'm going to let them chill for a few more days then see if they can handle getting some more air. It's looking kind of lonely in there with just the tray and dome and no moms.

    I've always noticed that variety is a good thing when it comes to smoking. Anytime I've been stuck with one strain for too long it's a noticeable difference when I smoke something different. I like your thoughts about switching up the pipes and joints. In fact I may have to bust out my dry herb vaporizer and full some bags soon. I haven't used it in a couple years and it would make for a good change up.

    Rufus is doing great and is spunky as ever.
    Spending thanksgiving with family just taking it easy and will probably watch some football and over eat.
    I hope you have a great Holliday and get a bike ride in if you have time.

    Update

    Greetings friends.
    Just a quick update tonight. The lady's moved to the flower tent this evening and are starting their first short day. After more than two months the 600w and fans are humming once again. I added a new tower fan and filter for circulation this time around. The plants are bushy and already filling a lot of the available space in there. The girls are about 18" tall and are growing like crazy. I have about 24" of space to rase the light so I'm hoping that they only stretch a little over double their currant size.
    Here is a pic of their new home.


    The plants have been looking great for a few weeks and didn't seem to mind their transplant 3 days ago one bit. It probably would have been ideal to let them get use to their new pots for a few more days before flipping to 12/12 but I'm just too worried about them getting too tall.

    I'm going to have to start feeding them pretty soon and I'm still unsure exactly what the schedule will be and what products to use. I know they will need some nitrogen to get through the stretch and then a good bloom nute. I haven't had to give anything but super light nutes and just a couple times so far in this grow. I under fed my first grow and want to keep my girls green this time around.
    Here is a couple pics of the girls in there new home.

    Good morning Rodehazrd.
    Looking back on my last grow the roots were not circling the pot like mine are now. I don't remember exactly how long they were transplanted before switching. Last time I went right from the 6" pots to the finishing ones. This time they were not happy in the 6" and weren't ready for the final pots. I went to 10" pots for the 2 weeks in between. So last time the roots had a lot of room to expand going from the little 6" right to the 14". I'm going to do things a little differently next time starting smaller and moving to maybe some 8" pots before going to the 14". That should give them more room on the final pot up and I'll do it a little earlier before flipping to 12/12. I should be able to give them a couple weeks in the big pots before flip next time but this time I have to get them flipped early. They are getting big. They are looking really healthy and happy so I think they will be fine. They have had 3 days of observation under the weaker t5 and don't show any stress so I'm going to move them into the flower tent tonight.

    That's some gangster grade root ball you got going there. Should be ready to support some colas.
    Thanks Rodehazrd.
    Yep,only 2 weeks in those post and already they are looking for more space. I hope they can go the 2 months of flower without getting too root bound again. I think I've herd that the root growth slows down after the stretch once they start putting everything into making flowers. I hope they like their new pots. They have about 2 or 3 times the soil of the last pots.

    I suspected it was something like that. I have 2 strains going this time so more variety after the next harvest.

    That's how I've always felt too. Not sure why but when I've been smoking the same strain for a while I always get higher when I get something different. I wonder how different pheno's affect it. Like if there is more of a strain tolerance or pheno tolerance. Either way it's more reason to try growing some variety.
