420 Magazine Background
Hi guys .
Hope I'm posting this in the right place " current grow logs " ?

I'm new to the site and a bit technical thick .
I'm doing a gorilla grow this year due to circumstances I might explain as we go along.

Anyhows..I'm an autoflower virgin but have been growing photo period plants for 17 years. I've got some Amnesia haze , green gelato , white widow , northern lights, blue cheese and Royal Queen seeds and a cookie cream I scabbed off a friend from 420 seeds.
They are germinating as I write this and are nearly ready to go into 10L pots and into my green house.

I've hacked a ditch away in a local forest ( more than 2 km but who cares about #lockdown)
And smuggled lots of supplies in. I've even managed to get a green house into the forest. I've only been able to do this because of a lack of tourists and hill walkers since covid hit. Thank

God for Corona.
 
going for a potting mix of 3 parts compost / 3 parts pet moss / 2 parts perlite / 1 part vermiculite. And a handful of cocoa pellets at the bottom for drainage.

I'm working with northern European temps so might have to smuggle in a little heater for the colder nights.

Low temps for the last few nights. I've had to smuggle a gas heater I to the forest.
I must be some sight to behold. Creeping through the undergrowth like David Bellamy with a green house and heater on his back.

Finally got six seeds popped through the soil. It's been hard work. Temps have been as low as 5 degrees Celsius some nights. I've started them underneath a 250watt ecolite. When they are sturdy enough for the journey I'll smuggle them into the forest.

Wow, amazing. I really liked your idea and all your efforts. The setup is so cool and can surely see all the great work done—one thing which I consider a bit odd is the area, forest. I mean, it's hard to maintain the temperature in the forest, rest everything is great, including the combination of strains. You have really ignored COVID alluringly, dude. And congratulations as they have started germinating. Take proper care and precautions, and I'll all set to ride along with you on this journey. Keep it up.

Hi Amy. Glad you could join my little gorilla grow in the wild.
I germinated 2 Amnestia autos & 1 Green Gelato earlier so hopefully they can go in the mix.

I've chosen the forest as it's nice and discreet. It's also only a 10km from my house. I've got lots of helicopters flying over where I live every summer. Sometimes its coastguard, and they are notorious for looking into peoples garden greenhouses. So it's far enough away that I cant be blamed on it.

I'm working on a solar powered system at the moment. I'm trying to build somthing that will power a heater on colder nights. Should keep me busy.

You are geared to go my friend. I dont have that much gear going on at my house, and it's all legal here. I love it!

Hay buddy. No such luck here. I've got low temperatures & helicopters everywhere. But sure God loves a tier.

Love what you've got going on at your house. I'm looking forward to see what happens.
Thanks man. I'm gonna follow along with you. Wasn't too long ago I was watching helicopters, and riding in rented vans full of half grown plants. The struggle is real. Fight the fight brother.

Wow Eddie, That is a really ballsy gutsy effort, top marks dude! Hopefully the spot you've chosen will be a non explored area when the lockdown in over. Clearly you just have to sacrifice it if it's found but hopefully by then you've had some good crops from it. :thumb:

Haha.
Sounds like you have the making of a good book there. I'd buy it

Them helicopters are a pest. I dont mind the rock stars flying over. It's the coastguard I'm wary of. They control all the drug drops in this country so they are allways on the lookout.

Thanks dude. I'm gonna make the most of lockdown here. I've gone off the beaten track on this one. We suffer from tourist invasion in my area. Hill walkers and MTB are everywhere. But I'm far enough away from their trails.

I'm trying to find some electrical fencing for sale second hand. Unfortunately shotguns are illegal here like everything else on life that's useful.

I'm just hoping the karma I've paid in will get me through.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.
 
Looking great, but what happens after the lockdown is lifted? Really interested in your logistics (and what happens if/when someone breaks in there)


Hi. I'm just hoping that i can get them done in time. Maybe karma is on my side this time. It's far enough away from the locals, yokles and tourists . I'm doing autos for the first time so hoping I can get them all done by the end of lockdown.
Fingers crossed
