    Hey that pork sounds good. I was raised on vinegar sauce bbq and red slaw. Most of the Midwest seems to slather on The brown sugar goo. And if I ask for it without sauce it bruises their ego.
    I think you have to put sugar on meat...
    should've got better meat.
    Glad you got something out of the Larry and gsc
    I have some hso diesel about two weeks in flower I'm watching closer now that the alarm is sounded. and some cc headband about to go in (6 new seeds) I was looking for a different phenotypes but they look like carbon copies so far. 100% germination and totally homogenous. What's the odds on That

    Just a quick harvest update and an early smoke report. The larry1 was seeded to the top and there was not much harvested. I got about 1/2 a quart jar of partly seeded buds ant the rest went into the hash bin. It was however very well covered in trichomes and should make good hash of butter. The bit that is smokeable is nice and skunky. The buzz is a nice energetic head high but if you keep smoking there is a bit of body buzz to be had. Would have to smoke a lot for couch lock.

    Larry2 is similar to larry1 but the buds were more compact. The skunk really comes through and it's got a lot of nice orange hairs. This turned out to be my best yielder. I haven't weighed any of it yet but I got 2 nice full quart jars. This plant would have been a more indica leaning high had it finished.

    The Girl Scout was something different for me both in the way it grew and the way the finished flower tastes and the buzz. It grew tall and much more sativa like in structure. It was probably the farthest from finished when harvested. The buds are greener with fewer lightly covered hairs. The flavor is not like anything I've tasted before. It kind of reminds me of cookie dough or something. Very interesting and a great contrast to the skunky Larry OG. The buzz is very up and energetic. Would be a great one to smoke before a bike ride or other physical activity. I can really taste the lavender flavor. Makes me want to grab some and have a puff right now. Oh well only 2 more hours of work and then it's home to puff some.


    After only a week of cure time it's getting pretty dry. I had to leave the jars open overnight once this week and it got slightly crispy. I'll do another report in a couple weeks when it's had a more proper cure. Have a great weekend everyone...Fiddy.

    how many weeks did they go anyway?
    im all about the variety and totally encourage you to salad it up!
    i always have a few different strains on my tray at any given time
    i like the different flavors and i think its brings a more balanced high

    i have been doing a lot of things with fresh dough lately
    we have a large ball of pizza dough rising right now and i am going to make some egg noodles later this afternoon
    after having so much fun wiht the pizza dough mrs chicky made last weekend i thoguht wouldent it be cool to make some fresh homemade noodles too?
    i went to amazon and found this pasta dough roller for like $20
    i figured what the heck and am going to make my first batch today

    im still working on my grind and have learned a few things like keeping things colder and working in smaller batches
    we are planning on making some sliders too, and with ny strip on sale i figure thats what im goign to use

    pork butt sounds awsome! do you add vinigar to your after its done?
    i like the apple cider kind
    man, lay some of that on bun with some pickles and im in heaven!

    good luck to your packers and i cant wait to see this games this weekend

    hope you have a great weekend too buddy!
    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    They went about 7 weeks I think. Long enough to frost up a bit but would have done a lot of swelling if they had finished and not been seeded. I'm with you on the variety. I need to get a rotation of keepers going and keep adding variety. Once I find my favorite skunky/chemy pheno's then I'll add some nice contrasting strains like blueberry and other sweet ones.
    Good work on the pizza dough. It's been too long since I've made any of that. I need to get to some bread making soon. Maybe a fresh loaf for tomorrow with the pulled pork. I have a pasta attachment for my kitchen aid mixer and have only used it once. I think my dough was too dry and it didn't want to separate into noodles much. I improvised and made the sheets into lasagna noodles and it was good. Got to get back to experimenting with pasta as well. Good luck on the pasta making.
    Smaller batches is a great idea for keeping things cold while grinding meat. Ny strip sliders sounds absolutely delicious. Make sure to get some cuts with plenty of fat cap on them to keep them juicy.
    When I'm doing a competition style pork butt I inject it with apple cider and apple cider vinigar. It's a bit more work but it's really juicy and the acid is a great addition for the rich smoky meat. Pickles for sure if making sandwiches and my other favorite is to serve it on tortillas with diced onion.
    I've been critical of how the packers have played this year but they have been hot at the right time. The cowboys have always been a good rival and there have been many great games over the years. Not making any bets but I hope it's a good game to watch.
    Enjoy the pizza, pasta and sliders and of course the games....Fiddy.

    By the way they were regs
    Good morning Rodehazrd.
    I'm thinking a couple weeks into flower is about right for when the pollination would have occurred given the maturity of the seeds. I remember reading a thread of a test grow of some feminized seeds whare the breeder said that weeks 2-4 of flower is where they usually herm and pollinate. I'm thinking mine were on the earlier side of that probably weeks 2 or 3. This makes sense since the balls would be obscured by the calyx and pistils making it hard to spot. I have to pay better attention from now on and deal with it.
    Have a great weekend...Fiddy.

    I think with such a high variety of GSC hybrids, you're going to have an increased chance of getting one prone to seeding out or hermaphroditism. Seems like a lot of what I've seen from other people running GSC.
    Good morning GG.
    Much learned and much more to learn indeed. In the end it's hard not to look at it as a step in the right direction. My first grow yielded more but I didn't learn as much and to be honest 2 of the 3 plants on the first grow didn't have a great flavor. At least all these plants stayed healthier and have a nice dankness to them.
    Like you said I've noticed a lot of mixed results with Girl Scout genetics with a lot of the threads I've been reading through. Only one of the Bodhi seeds packs I just got has any GSC in it and I'll have to see if I have any better luck with that. Looking forward to getting some seeds in the soil this weekend and starting a new journey.thanks for stoping by and your positivity...Fiddy.

    thats the weird thing about herrmies
    i very rarely see them on any plants indoors or out
    /and hope im not jinxing myself to a lifetime of nanners
    the one time i did it was because i had left the tent open for several days so the plants were getting a really erratic light schedule
    i would like to add i pretty much use only reg seed

    i think it was something in the genetics you got but like your idea of checking for any stray light
    we can always improve on our grow techniques and this is somehting so easy that unless you need to see that little light, why not cover them all

    so what are you planning on goign with next,fiddy?
    Good morning pop_rocks.
    The smoke is surprisingly good for how early they were harvested. The larry2 seems to be a bit more mature than the GSC and is a more balanced buzz. The Girl Scout is more sativa like and probably would have gone longer in flower than the Larry's. Great idea to make a "salad" with some of my old harvest and get more body buzz.
    I've been reading a lot of threads about hermies and there are many different opinions and possible causes. One thing that has come up a couple times has been that indoor plants get so much light up top and so little at the bottom. Some say that is very stressful for the plant and is a reason some plants will herm indoor but not outdoor where the sun gets better penetration. This has me thinking about how thick my canopy was and has me considering doing at least some light defoliation in the future.
    Not sure which beans to pop next but be flipping a coin or something and getting them in some soil this weekend. I'll also be starting a new thread which will be a perpetual grow thread and should be up by the end of the weekend. I'll put a link up in this thread as soon as it's up.
    Are you getting any use out of your meat grinder? I'm doing a pork butt for the NFC game on Sunday. You been doing any cooking or riding lately? Have a great weekend and enjoy some football and food and drink...Fiddy.

    Good afternoon Rodehazrd.
    All is well here. Your right I learned a few things and ended up with a few jars of grass too. The quantity was not great considering but the lessons made it more than worth it. Not sure about the blinking light but I just one more thing to eliminate and won't be a problem next time. I also am not currently using the tower fan. I've herd that too much wind can stress them. Like you said I want something more stable that I can abuse a bit and won't turn on me. I have a friend that grows roof top in the city of Oakland with street lights and other city lights all night long and she dosent seem to have these problems. I'm really hoping that I was just unlucky and not that my environment was the cause. Only way to know is to get the next run underway and see if I have better luck next time. I have a lot of new gear to run and I think I'll find some keepers over the next few grows.

    Reading threads on icmag about cc it seems like some people have a lot of hermies and others don't have any so may be just luck or the ones who have more problems have harsher environments. So when I was trimming I found one set of balls and it was on the GSC. Judging by the amount of seeding on l1 I'd still say it must have also had some balls but I rushed through the trim and didn't take the time to find them. The others were mostly ok in the tops but the lower 2/3 were all seeded larf. The Larry's taste great. Both are skunky and I love that. My Blackwater had very different tastes between the three but both Larry's taste similar. The GSC has an interesting flavor and the lavender comes through nicely, never tasted any weed like that. More sativa like high as well. All were picked early so not a lot of body buzz. I'm sure you will find a good Larry.
    Hoping all is well...Fiddy.

    hope your new year is off to a great start
    how are your new sprouts doing?
    Good morning pop_rocks.
    I am on well water here and it's both hard and full of iron. We have to use a softener and an iron filter just so it doesn't clog up our faucets and appliances. My wife's house plants don't like the water here so I've never used it on my plants. Since the humidifier didn't really help much with humidity I'm not going to experiment with distilled water or anything.

    Not sure about the light either but I've herd that little things like that or the glowing button on a power strip can piss the girls off. I just have to try and remove any thing that could be causing them to stress out.

    2017 is going good so far and the autoflower plants are growing and budding up. They get right after it and should be done in a few weeks. That said I have to choose my next seeds to grow. I got a few packs and some freebies a couple days ago and I'm excited to get to pooping some of them. I have 3 Bodhi packs, lemon wookie(lemon diesel x wookie15), granola funk (GSC forum x wookie15), and his chem91 jb x snow lotus. I also have a pack of tony greens gorilla bubble BX1F1. I plan on spending the next few grows going through these packs and finding some good keepers. These will be the first non fem photos I'm working with so I'm trying to get a strategy together for getting the males out and cuttings taken of the girls before final transplant and flip to 12/12. Been reading a lot on icmag lately and want to get cracking ASAP.

    Looking like I got 5 quart mason jars of mostly seed free flower from the Larry's and GSC. After drying and trimming and the sample flavors have been pretty good. Defiantly should get me to the next harvest.

    I hope your new year is off to a cracking start as well and you and yours are healthy and happy...Fiddy.

    Update

    Greetings friends.
    I have a coupe thoughts on some things that may have stressed these plants and contributed to the pollination. I was checking for light leaks a couple days ago. I sat in the tent for several minutes and while I couldn't find any light leaks I discovered that my remote temp and humidity gauge has a tiny red LED that blinks once in a while. Not sure how often it blinks because it only did once during the time I was in there. For such a tiny light it sure is bright in the otherwise pitch blackness of the dark in there. Even if it only blinks once an hour or something it's probably enough to piss off the plants. The only other thing I can think of is the white dusty residue that I found after getting and using an ultrasonic humidifier. I was worried about low humidity and figured I'd try using a humidifier. It didn't do much for the humidity but after a coupe days I noticed a white powdery residue in the tent and on some of the leaves of the plants. I guess it's the minerals from the water that the humidifier was vaporizing. I unplugged it and stopped using it right away but the plants might not have liked the powdery minerals or whatever on them and that might have been a factor. These are just the only things that I can think of that could have been problematic for the girls. Not sure if either was the cause or just a contributing factor. The good news is that I won't be using the humidifier again and I put some tape over the light on the temp remote so I have eliminated these problems.lets hope I have it fixed and the next few grows go well.
    I hope everyone has a great weekend and your plants are healthy and happy...Fiddy.
