Late Spring / Early Summer:
After greenhouses were built, it was time to start filling them up! This first season was a big testing bed to experiment and see what was possible, how the climate was, how the plants performed in various places etc.
We did the following,
Test native soil in pots and beds,
test various pots (smart pots, airpots, standard square and round pots of various sizes, Pre-bought Growbags of various sizes,
Making large grow bags from Soil Bags,
Different soil mixes,
Plants inside transferred outside,
plants outside for the duration,
Plants brought inside to finish.
We monitored feeding/watering frequency,
Tested various nutrients,
Made self watering systems,
Saw what vermin/insects and pests there were,
Recorded dates of when photoperiods started to flower, and importantly the key periods for best AF growth
We put a few AF's outside in Mid-April as a test, (started inside until they sexed) the weather didn't really turn good until June here, Trust us to come and experience the wettest, coolest Spring since the 1890's. Still, can't shake a stick at some free buds to smoke.
The sunshine also brought about lots of other pretty flowers around the property, Also our cacti flowered twice over the season, briefly but nicely, something I hadn't seen before.
1 greenhouse starting to fill out:
To be continued soon, cheers all.
