Instructures on the coast of maine website .I also bought a bag of organic worm castings,COM fishbone meal & COM plant food and the Squid jell.Hopeing to have a network of people on here I can reach out to for advice.Ive been a heavy smoker for the last 15 years ,so I really want to hone this craft.Any advice as I'm growing would be great I included pictures of what My setup is.Seeds will be here in 2 days according to tracking.

Sounds like you have a good plan already. If you go to journals in progress you can start one of your own. Tag me and I'll follow along with you my friend.

Beautiful! I'm in a couple of tents and as long as my health holds up a few will go in the ground in the yard. Nice day here today, I'm scoping where I'm putting them. It's been a few years since I went out, and then only once. We're on the other end up in the northeast corner. How early can you get the greenhouse working?

Good question...I've never used one but thinking I should wait another couple weeks.Were still hitting 30s to 40s at night at 65-70 as of right now.After the autos get tall enough to move to the tent ,ill get some photos strong and then move them outside.I mean let's be clear this is how I imagine it.lol...Im very optimistic about things but need to remember I've never even grown a tomato...So I'm just gonna shut up..and calm down and listen to what all of you have to say.

Clean setup and wow, what a green house.

I post the journal link to start, so we can keep an eye on you and help where needed or if you just want to communicate with others about growing.

Welcome! I'm east of you near Boston. I just put in a greenhouse last fall myself and am looking forward to this summers crop.

Do you have exhaust and intake fans for your tent? Are you planning to go all the way through flower indoors? The reason I ask is my indoor winter crop (first crop) finished mid June and I had to put in a portable ac, and I'm in a full basement that doesn't get too bad. The room that your tent is in, is it climate controlled?
