I'm currently in the ground at 2000 ft. It gets hot here in the summer so earths thermal battery is hard to resist.


The ground in Los Osos sure looks nice.

Ive had really good results with 40 gallon fabric bags for the last couple years..
It's easy to grow 1 lb. plants in them.
I'd prefer to grow in ground but that isnt possible , security wise.
Too many thieving mutts around here, so I like to keep my plants within shotgun range and its really convenient to have them within range of the garden hose too. .
I start with a heavily amended mix of native soil and water frequently with tailored compost teas during the summer.


I did a final dry trim of this plant yesterday and got almost 15 oz. of the larger buds and almost 7 oz. of smaller buds and trim for the bubble bags. It is one of the smaller plants.
I could have saved some of what has been put aside for the bubble bags but its a wash, no pun intended.


Group shot from this past July.


Lemon OG early September.

Does anyone know if using raised beds helps disguise plant count? Like is it harder to tell how many plants are in the gh when using beds vs using pots which to me would seem a little more obvious how many there are.

Yes. When you are getting a fly over, it is much easier for them to count the plants when you have pots. It's just easier to see through the greenhouse plastic. With beds it's much more difficult. Once the canopy is fully grown in, it's less of a big deal.
