    * ok i need to clarify. My flower room is HID free. Still running a full combo of like, everything, in veg. Mh400, t5s, cheapo daylight LED, LED shop lights, and blurples, depending upon application. Its a wreck. Sue me when i have more assets.

    Edit: the Midcentury pendant is and has never been part of my grow lighting lol that's going in the upstairs bathroom if I renovate it rather than turn it into a Veg Annex.

    Neither do I, and I've been doing it since I was a dumb twentysomething. I still feel a sense of wonder (and relief!) when I take down a meaty plant. There's always more to learn and it's easy to become impatient with what you perceive as your own shortcomings. I've totally spent years tearing my hair out that things never came out like the breeder pictures lol. I look at it like the impact of cultural ideals of what women should look like and how we still beat ourselves up for failing at someone else's idea of perfection.
    You can pull off an indoor crop quite respectably!!! Let yourself grow however you're comfortable ; )
    Trust your instincts and the wisdom of your friends.

    Seriously. I can't shake the image of those indigo-tipped buds. It's like, SEARED in my mind. Much respect and I can't wait to get you some more fun cuts to work your magic on.

    I can't wait! I have 4 good sized grapes that have already shown female preflowers, and I've already backed them up with healthy rooted cuts, so all I need is space under the Big light! Couple more days and in they go!

    When I was younger I thought I knew everything. Now that I am older I realize I know nothing. There is always more to learn no matter what your gardening skill level is. :)

    The batch of clones I took a couple weeks ago, where I set the plugs on top of moist dirt in oversized cells- they hardened off super painlessly, and rooted right through the dirt and out the holes in the cells. All potted up and ready for wherever the wind blows them.

    Backup cuts of triple grape are in the middle here, these are the new moms.
    The triple lemon didn't sprout all that well for me unfortunately and I have 2 males and 1 unknown. That being said, one of the males is shockingly vigorous and the clones off him have outpaced their buddies by far, and it's a rugged, solid plant that I am thrilled to have as a breeder. I've got that kosher kush x lemon skunk female who has been striking out on tinder so far ; ) hmmm just in time for Valentine's day...

    There are more ‘characters’ in your garden than on the whole ‘Game of Thrones’ series(complete with family lineage). Like GoT, I keep coming back for new episodes...

    Sous vide pork chops with balsamic fig glaze, kale, and toasted cashews. It's better with hazelnuts but that what I had in the freezer. This is, IMVHO, THE ONLY way to do pork chops: few hours in the sous vide, glaze, few minutes under the broiler.
    Nomnomnom!!!!

    You know the January Thaw is over when you put a HID lamp in your grow just for heat... less than 3 days after removing it in favor of something a bit more modern. It's too cold, I want off this ride. Which one of y'all living in the Hot Part needs a farmhand/personal chef til about April lol
