Thanks guys and gals. I’m not complaining. I have literally been submerged for most of the year. Mom really was my primary focus. And at work, we have switched to 12 hour shifts due to the “pandemic” so that seriously eats into my day. All of the extra preparations to maintain social distancing at work for 12 hours has had significant negative psychological and physical energy consuming affects on me personally. The same restrictions and not being able to visit my mom in her final days really screwed me up. And then being the only person in my family, I had to organize and pay for mom’s funeral during all these stupid pandemic restrictions laid out by the government and that meant mom didn’t get the kind of funeral that she wanted to have. I know people bitch about the cost of living. I have a really traumatic story about the cost of dying. But I’m not going to share that story here. That’s not why I’m here. I just wanted to let you guys know that I haven’t forgotten about you, and that I do read your posts. I just don’t comment very much because you guys have way more to offer in the form of knowledge and advice than I do. I’ve got to confess that this new world we are living in has had some serious negative affects on myself and the small circle of family, friends and coworkers. All of the hatred being displayed and the rioting and the killing and the destruction has really got me stressed out. I thank God every day that I live out and away from the madness. As difficult as things are, He has blessed my life with awesome family, great friends, the gift of cannabis to enhance my life and the other earthly possessions that allow me the privilege of being able to survive during these darker days.
As for future grows, yes, for now I am submerged and idle. But I’m sitting on about 2 pounds of seven different strains. I have a lot of smoking to do. Hahaha. But I think my next grow is going to be an auto called hulk smash. Thanks for all the kind words. I will be around. But I will most likely just bereading up until I start my next grow. And I will probably need some advice, because I’ve never grown an auto before. meanwhile let’s spread peace love and cannabis seeds and stop the hate and destruction.
Peace Out!

So let me tell you a story about blazing with my 3year old son.

As some of you already know, I am a retired firefighter/medic haz mat tech who has lost a kidney to renal cell carcinoma. My other kidney isn’t very happy either and my prostate is threatening a walk out. I use cannabis to make my life bearable. My son is 33 years old, married and living in Tennessee with his wife and son. I live here in the DFW area. Back in June of this year (2020), My son came down for my moms funeral and oh boy was that a trip. He didn’t know it, but I have converted his room to be a grow room. I was worried about how I was gonna explain the tent and all the associated gear in his room. I was especially anxious about the rosin press and microscope. So I broke it to him like this.
I engaged in some small talk and asked him how things are going at home with his family and his job and one thing leads to another. He reluctantly tells me about his anxiety and Insomnia. Now mind you, he knows I’m pro cannabis however, he didnt know at the time that I was actively growing and toking. So I ask him how he’s managing to function with his chaotic life. He looks me square in the eyes, smiles and says “weed”. In the back of my mind I think that he expected me to have a negative reaction, because I could see a bit of defiance in his eyes. I suspect he was expecting me to have some sort of negative reaction. But I think I caught him off guard. I busted out laughing. I cheekily ask if he brought a little to share. The look he gave me was priceless. He meekly admitted he brought 3 Js with him. I took him to the “store” room, and said, “son, you need to step up your game”, and then showed him the seven 40+ OZ jars and four big tins of the seven different strains I have grown so far.
All he could manage to utter was “Holy Fuck!! Holy Fuck!!” for about five minutes. Then I took him to his old bedroom and showed him my grow operation. I laughed. He laughed. We got high on each other’s supply. It was a very lovely bonding moment between father and son in an otherwise tragic event which was the funeral I had to put together for my mom and his granny. And yeah. I sent him home with a quarter of the tangerine dream and Eleven Roses. I also got to do some dabs with him. He had never done dabs so I turned him on to some of the eleven roses rosin that I pressed earlier in the year. He loved it. And that’s how I got high with my son for the first time ever.

That was one hell of a grow. Somehow I missed it in this huge forum but I'm glad I found it. My son is 37 and I have yet to smoke with him. I know he does it but we live far apart. I hope he comes down here sometime soon. I'd love to teach him how to grow.
I know your not growing right now but when you do tag me. I'll visit for sure...lol. I love plant porn and watching other succeed. Your experience showed on this grow. I hide behind that curtain too. Its not a comfortable feeling at all but we do what we have to do. I hope to see more grows from you soon.

I saw a Typo in my last post. My son is 32 years old. I have stupid thumbs lately.
I know the feeling. No matter how many times we check we still miss a few things.

Just having fun with you but your son is 3 years old in the first sentence and then 33 a sentence or two later.

Great story no matter how old he is.

Just checking in. It’s been an insane year so far. Still submerged as far as growing goes. Nursing on my past projects. I just wanted to add that the second GSC phenotype “B” that was grown in this project apparently hermied because we are finding seeds in the buds. LOL. I have no idea how it pollinated since it was in a tent with filters on both the inlet and outlet and the only other plant in the tent was another female which didn’t show any signs of going hermie. Not sure what happened but I’m gonna collect what seeds I find and keep them. I’m really enjoying these two girls buds. It’s an amazing high. I blaze and laugh my arse off watching Monty Python. And it

And it really helps me sleep. It’s so amazing to be able to actually have a large supply to nurse off of during these challenging times. I will likely start another project this fall. Things are finally settling down to where I can focus on home projects.
hope everyone is doing good.
