    Welcome and Salutations!

    This year marks the first year California has legalized the use of Marijuana. I dedicate this year to all who persevere in other states and countries who’s government yet do not recognize the gift of nature that Marijuana is.

    For your enjoyment and possible enlightenment I keep a journal here. All are welcome to view and comment. Many of you know me and Mr TC so let’s get the show on the road.....

    We popped 18 seeds, bought online from the Cali Connection web site. We ordered 6 Alien OG, 6 Headband 818 and were gifted 6 Boss Hog. We grow in 45 gallon Smart pots. Today we transplanted 3 week old seedlings into gallon pots. We start them indoors under T5 lights. We used Happy Frog Potting Mix.

    We live in the mountains of Northeren California and have a short Grow season (average last frost is May 31 and September 31 average first frost. We harvest usually starting first week in October. Second week in May we will begin to harden off the plants and have them out in their smart pots by May 15.

    I Look forward to reconnecting with you all and meeting new friends. It is gonna be a fantastic Summer!

    Hello Rose! Indeed spring is here, tho with the temps of the last couple days it feels like summer is just around the corner.

    The pics are the girls going out for a walk and a big drink. The last individual plant looks funny, almost like nute burn on a seedling, but not. It will prolly not make the cut to go into the garden by its looks.

    I have a question for those familiar with outdoor growing.

    Will using shade cloth over the plants be beneficial to the potency of the Marijuana? I understand that Marijuana does not grow under 46 degrees and conversely not over somewhere in the 90’s. High nineties, I’m remembering 98f, but my memory is becoming challenged. We are considering using it over 1/2 the garden, (I am comprising at an experiment). Mr. TC thinks the high temps from last summer has affected potency of our plants. If Marijuana grows in hot Africa and Afghanistan then temps would hot temps matter? We get some heat streaks of 110f and a bit over. So I’m concerned. I think our potency is good. I have heard no complaints from friends who smoke it. So the question, Will shade cloth help or hurt.?

    Thanks for reply’s.

    Hey TC! I have no idea about shade cloth. My plants handle the 100+ pretty well. It would be interesting to do a test. hmm

    Your last plant has what in roses we call a virus. I have seen it in pot but I don't think it is a virus. It usually grows out of that. Glad your babies got out for a walk, i think it agrees with them. What are your overnight temps? I haven't put mine out yet.

    Good morning Rose, I think the shade cloth idea is over. The price of the stuff is pretty pricy. I have a lawyer, lol. Thanks for the info on the sick plant. I have isolated her. She’s getting tall but still has the crinkle leaves.

    The plants are getting hardened off to the sun now. Been in dappled shade these last few days, heading out to a couple hours of morning light today. Overnight-temps are mid 40’s to low 50’s now. The smart pots will be ready this weekend. We use 50/50 old soil to new. We screen out the old soil, getting out the old roots and loosening it up.

    Trump, didn’t know you smoked the ganja. Welcome to our small effort to green up the world.

    Good morning Rose. This looks different here, is this good? Tried bold. And unbold. Didn’t unbold. Or did it? Is interesting. Smaller print. Okay I guess.

    I like the new software.
    Fresh transplanted into their new homes, Headband, Alien, and Boss Hog. Look all the same to me.

    One more. These will be going to live out their lives at my Brothers garden. Front left is the sick looking one from the earlier post. Looks like it is growing out of it Rose.
