Grow Journal of the Month: September 2018 - Grow Journal of the Year: 2018
Thats a bummer :/ hope you still have plenty of meds buddy
Hey NS! Nice to see you here . I'm glad you're on the upswing and digging the DTF. I'm hoping for a good sativa high from it.Heya shed
How are you doing This fine saturday? I’m slowly getting out of a huge energy dip so I tought Lets pay your journal a visit
And the dtf... Its hunting my mind lol
Anything but sleep .I saw a lot of clear still Shed. Maybe the AK is ready. Its all about you though, whatchu lookin fer?
Seriously! Cash or some appreciation would be nice.I'm with you brother! I had the same thing happen to me with an unemployed niece. No intention of working (A youngster) had her mom call and ask for free weed. I told her mom to send her over and the cost/gram is such. She never came. I never charge anyone and I always have a gift for family and close friends but don't send your kids here for free things to perpetuate their lifestyle of laziness.
@medmanmike had his GL tested a while back and there wasn't much CBD in the results. High CBD for ILGM is a completely different number than what we consider high now. Here is what he found:I am looking forward to growing and trying some Gold Leaf, It has THC and CBD which is what I want for Pain , Depression etc.
Test results were not what I expected compared to What ILGM.com says, but still ok. THC: 12.64 %, CBD: 0.36 %, Total Cannabinoids: 14.68 %.
Go Shed Go!
Done! Update soon.^^^ What otter said! Snip-Snip! Chop-chop!
Thank you VGToo bad you lost so much.
Nice to see you back here CR. It was definitely a bummer to have to keep taking of huge chunks of buds and dropping them in the scrap pile. On the plus side, the plants were big enough to still have something to keep the jars filled until next summer.Sorry, that is disappointing.
#nolarf for sure.#nolarf
Thanks NS. If the DTF turns out to be a big hit I can always flower another in the spring. I think I'll have enough to get through the winter.Thats a bummer :/ hope you still have plenty of meds buddy
I don't recall anyone mentioning racy for the Gold Leaf, so that's a plus if you have nowhere to go .1/4 Per Sucks , but NoLarf !! am sure there is still enough , That Gold Leaf sounds good if its not racy . Hate to get Jacked up with nowhere to go lol
It sure does make a difference - even if only for a short block of time.My wife and daughter both put in over an hour of de-leafing before they went to the movies Saturday night, which saved me a lot of time.
Yeah, trimming is easy compared to digging for rot. Miss any and the whole stem could go to shit while it's hanging.Very nice shed, and I can say, digging for all the rot when I was cutting added a lot of time to the process.
Thank you Van. She tried out a tester on Labor Day and liked it! I'm sure it's even better for the week of ripening.Well done Shed! Well done sir. Nice looking colas there. Hope the wife likes the smoke!!
Thanks UA! Should still be a good harvest. That's one of the pluses of growing plants that are too big .Nice Shed, bummer about the rot, but nice to get them down and hanging. Looks like a decent amount even with the rot.
Many hands make light work! And the yields are coming in well. It's gotta make up for the miniature fall and winter grow . Thanks BL! And once the AK is down I can get back to work on the pipe...Congratulations on another harvest - hope your fingers survived the weekend trimming!
It sure does make a difference - even if only for a short block of time.
Also congrats on 10 oz of IIP! It seems you've had several killer yields this time around.
Thank you carcass, it is a great feeling! I moved one plant today. I watered one plant today. I feel like I have almost nothing to do in the mornings now, and yet I was still 10 minutes late for work .Great job,Shed-only one to go-that's got to be a good feeling!
Thank you MrS! And the key is to grow big enough plants to be able to lose some.It's been a tough growing season for you Shed...
nice haul on the IIP! All considered I think you did well with all the numbers.
Thanks Dutch! The humidity and the small things that turn into moths (is that okay @Virgin ground?). I'm adding those to the list of things I've learned this grow...Nice harvest Shed! On the bud rot... humidity is not your friend down there!
Still another great round of flowering though with some stellar plants!
Okay, it's another Monday double-harvest update! Saturday was Sour G and Sunday was DTF, so let's do them in order of disappearance...
Sour G is a cross created by @The rooster from Sour Diesel, Gorilla Glue #4, and THC Bomb. I first planted a seed at the end of December 2017 and I veg them for a long time, so this is only Sour G 1.1.1. The clone was planted on January 21, 2019, and if we give it a week for roots, it's a total grow time of 222 days.
Pardon the blur in the first two pics. Always clean your lenses first!
I decided to work in the shade this time!
All the rot:
My wife and daughter both put in over an hour of de-leafing before they went to the movies Saturday night, which saved me a lot of time. Cutting out bud rot makes the process take a lot longer.
And Sunday was time to take down the DTF, a creation of @Van Stank Genetics and a cross between Durban Poison and Alaskan Thunderfuck. I planted a single seed and hoped for a female, and I got it. It sprouted on April 24th, so total grow time was 137 days, and it turned out to be the perfect size to move around.
One of the least rotten mains, and a beauty it is:
These are the outside branches, some of which I had to cut in half to fit in the wash bucket! Without the rot they would have been pic-worthy after trimming:
I lost a lot of the mains to rot in the end .
Here are the Sour G (bottom strings) and DTF (top strings) in the tent this morning:
It was hard to draw a line to delineate them because some of the DTF is hanging below the top string of the Sour G, but the top three rows are DTF and the bottom ones are Sour G. The loose buds on the light are Sour G. The loose buds from the DTF are sitting in a box lid in the house.
That leaves just the AK-47 for next weekend and I'll be done! If I harvest on Saturday, I will probably drop one or two auto seeds Saturday night, and then Sunday I will deal with the all the root bound clones. They too get moved twice a day, from inside the bike shed (under the Mars 300) to on top of it. Staying in 1 gallon pots are the Peyote Critical and Berry Bomb mothers, and I will be making four 1 gallon mothers from the many solo cup clones: DTF, IIP, Candida lanky, Candida squat. And in a month I will move a Sour G clone to a 1 gallon as well. Those will be my mother plants for the winter.
I hope your weekend went well and that the week ahead looks sunny and bright, except up by @newty where it's probably starting to snow .
