I'm hearing from others that grew the same that my plants look great in comparison.
They took a beating from the winds and rain so many growers are scrambling to harvest what they can.


I am not sure if I should do the same.

Would you (or others) say its time? or wait.
Dry weather expected for another week then all bets are off.
They look okay; obviously a very different cultivar from mine, which originated in Manitoba. I'd push it till you see a little fade if possible and run out in the middle of the night when it starts raining.

wow 600K for a LOT????? Wow you could buy my whole neighborhood, houses included for that sort of money.

Rico; In answer to your inquiries about my plan for the CBD issues and LEDs We have structured a little steel frame with translucent roof but thus far no walls and 2 LED boards hung with 240 watt total consumption.

The idea with leaving out walls is to allow entry of friendly bugs and wind; also light of course The lights come on adding in 5 hours of light giving a total 17.5 hours daily.

In the small pots on the table are the planted cuttings from the previous posts; also my experiments with the compost; and a tray full of sprouting alfalfa for lawn turf.

[btw the compost burned the tips of the cannabis seedling leaves, the alfalfa seedlings yellowed a wee bit; however the tomato seedlings faired great] My general conclusion is 3 months was insufficient to produce stable compost from the materials used; onward we go.

The plan is to have the greenhouse sortof area to keep mothers and start CBDs to keep them in veg until a decent size to send to the other yard for flowering [fruitset]



The other morning to my horror, I discover thrips on my transplanted cuttings so powdered them with diatomaceous earth. The next day I sponged most of the residual powder off and later noticed I may not need to repeat the process as I spotted a tiny Rove beetle eating the eggs. You can still see the stain from the DE.

For no special reason I have plantain (herbal) companion plants which seems good.



My Panama red is putting out flowers and I'm disappointed to not see the beauty colors. Perhaps it was the cross I did with Tims that brought out the color or maybe future plants. I'll try getting some of my seeds back from my F1.
There is decent trichome coverage though

Planting time here. Long time very dry but the little green leaf spiders are all about at present. Seems they only need dew to survive and do their thing. (Ours hop along. What about yours?)

That green spider is not a hopper but we have lots of small hopping spiders of various colours.
