Monday update, the one where we talk about this weekend!

First off, I'm having a new roof put on starting this morning. Some of you may remember my trials and tribulations with my old roof and the patching and the tarping and the leaking into my son's room. It's quite a mess but it will keep me off the roof for 30 years, which is not a bad thing at my age :).

To the plants! On Saturday I transplanted the Colombian Gold 2 into its final home, a 7 gallon GeoPot. I took a razor blade and scored the roots around the outside and across the bottom:

After it went in I tied it down:

Here is the genuine SaugaView®:

I took off the lowest nodes:

Which I think were the second or third, having taken the very lowest ones when it went into the 1 gallon pot:

CG1 got flipped Saturday night and spends 12 hours of darkness in the shed each night.

I also started the finish work on a bench top I cut last weekend. The wicker seat had ripped and you'd fall through if you sat on it. The stain ended up being too dark so I spent most of Saturday afternoon sanding it down. Then I put three coats of spar urethane on it Sunday, and this is the finished product (the color is more even than the pic...the reflection of the sky makes the left half look lighter):

I also transplanted the Durban Poison on Sunday, even though it could have gone another week. It got tied back down:

SaugaView®:

A spider supervised the photography, similar to the one from the Chocolope harvest:

That was my weekend, which was mostly overcast. Of course this week will be sunny while the plants spend the days inside because of the roofers. :( Oh well...

Thanks for stopping by! :ciao:

Nice work on the bench. You grow, you bake bread, you do woodworking. Is there anything you can't do? You're a real Renaissance man. :4:

He's kind of cute. For a spider. However, if he dropped onto my shoulder, I'd probably still squeal. :laugh2:

Everything looks great shed even the bench I wouldn't mind parking my fat ass on that and smoking a fatty.
Looks like there’s room for three on the bench!....
Plants even look like their coming along, I love to see a good DP spread out like that.

Thanks HG! Not much of a woodworker, but I'm okay with the tools I have on hand :). Oh, and squealing is perfectly acceptable!
glad your mucking about the roof is over, especially at your age
Me too, but I probably will look up at it wistfully on occasion ;).

You're welcome any time smokey. :high-five:
Nice Shed. I like the plants and the bench
Thanks PCa!
This is great news! After that it’ll be someone else’s problem
My children or their spouses! I'll be 92 and if I'm still alive hope someone will be looking after me...
I love your furry furry spiders. Wonderful update too - CG looks the goods alright!
The furry ones are cute, but they jump. :eek: Thanks Amy!

Thank you DAB! The DP is growing well but well behind the CG. I know which one gets the bulk of the tent in flower, that's for sure.
Pine for the bench Shed?
Just some plywood I had lying around, so it's gotta be pine. Took that stain like nobody's business! Went through a lot of sandpaper taking it off. :rolleyes:
Oh yeah, meant to say I love the effect of the sanded back dark stain. Looks like it’s been licked by fire!
Yeah, took a while before I was happy with it, but I am now :)

Oh! Also, nice update. The plants are looking good and what a great idea to salvage that wicker bench! Advice I give you about the roof - beware of nails everywhere around the outside perimeter of the house! They will normally roll a little magnet thingy around but it never gets all of them. :eye-roll:

Maybe it's just me, but he/she looks very happy. NIce update Shed, and the plants are looking really good!
Thank you Mr/MsS!
:ciao: hi Shed! Quick salve question...after 4 days did your stems/stalks soften a bit? I'm a about 54 hours in and mine are still fairly hard.
Not by much, but you're only halfway in so give them time. They were completely dried before you put them in the oil, yes?

Thanks Boo! These guys were very good and the place was in great shape after they left yesterday. I will definitely do a perimeter check when they're done though.

They finish the plywood today and then put the paper and shingles down tomorrow. Nail-guns galore!

True. Oh yeah, they were seriously dry. I also have roots and leaves and smaller stems as well. I have to say, I don't much like the scent of the coconut oil but it is fading as time goes by. The oil has a nice green color to it. :3:

Omg. No fun being there when that is going on. :eek:

This is the only time you will really smell it. Once you put the wax in and split it into containers, it's hardly there.

Luckily I'll be at work :3:

only when there's a certain degree of rooted-ness?
I scratch the roots loose if it doesn't show a high degree of rooted-ness, but if it looks like the CG2, razors ready!

The Durban Poison just needed some scratching. My dog needs a lot more. :)
