But around the Mtn were my buddy lives there's a few bears. There's just a lot of animals here and the fucking insects. I've got a bunch of wire I've got from old chicken cages. So that helps me on some cost. When I start putting out some guerilla plants next wk I'm gonna pour some urine around. I'm also gonna get a bottle of that deer repellent this week at Walmart. I'm gonna take some wire to cage them also I guess. Might as well try to lock it down on what I can control.
By July 1st your plants should be booking it. If they're not in a huge growth spurt by then, you should add water soluble Nitrogen and use foliar and ground nitrogen feed. This is a critical time that will affect your yield and requires emergency attention. If you have no nitrogen to feed it, you can urinate around them because urine has an NPK of about 12,1,2. But you'll need more N to keep it going. It's better to burn them a bit than deny them what they need.
Last week I filled a 55 gal drum with water, grass clippings, leaves, nettles (only green stuff. Nothing brown.) to the very top, and put a lid on it. Now the sun will heat it up and cook it. In a couple weeks it'll be rich in N. I should have done this a month ago though. I'll be bringing 10 gallons with me every time I go out in a couple weeks. I'll keep giving them N until they start flowering, then I'll switch to very low N and high PK.
My holes were dug around May1 and every hole was amended to supersoil and cooked by June1. If I start to see nute burn, I'll back off, but until then it's "Open Wide Baby". The only thing I'm afraid of is lockout.
