It's a weird reaction, to be sure. We'd probably get better relations if we were doing crack. Why such negativity from people, especially relatives, when many of us are just trying to look after our own health?

And then they go on with their 'holier than thou' attitudes while having a cocktail and smoking a cigarette. At least our choice has world class healing powers.

I have little time or interest in dealing with those close minded people. Life's too short and all that.

Funny thing is, in ten years after this has become more accepted they'll be wanting our advice and act like nothing happened back in the day when they all had an attitude.

Good morning Krissi :ciao: great to see you back safe and sound.
I'm so sorry about your son and everything else you have been through lately.
I know life is crazy sometimes hopefully this will pass and calm down for you soon.
Just know we care and hope for the best for you and your family. :green_heart:

Stay safe
Bill
Happy to be here with you all and thankful my son and all of life are getting back in line! I feel the love, so heavily! :love: you make me smile!
Damn girl, you are getting you ass kicked. Sorry to hear the extent of the gory details, man....Well, on the plus side, you're hanging in there like a champ! You'll get through this. Just a bump in the road. Small thing to a giant. So you got good vibes coming from this direction. And hurry up and get here with the jar of Banana Blaze we talked about.

:19: :19: :thumb: :circle-of-love:
Man oh man buddy I could come now I need a vacation! As my son likes to say ,"I got this"! Just gotta get back in the swing of things is all! Thanks for the love Jon, means a lot! :love::love:
It's a thing folks. I lost my entire side of the family. My sister talks to me but to say happy holidays. Her family, that we were very close to, have disappeared from our life. I was crushed for a long time (still kind of) and accept it for what it is. What we make of it. I choose to make good things when I can. The best family isn't always blood related!
You know it's funny cause Satan actually smokes and has a med card. In a way, I think it almost worked out in the end...MIL got me some cannabis leaf socks for Mother's Day :19: the rest of TKs family may take some time and my mother has yet to hear my bich about telling her in the first place

You are absolutely right. The hypocrisy and irony in all of this is unprecedented with the way marijuana is taking off across the globe with its medicinal benefits. Kicked MIL in the butt when her dog owner (she's a dog watcher) came to pick up her dog the other day and told her she needs to start smoking weed again. Makes it seem more normal I guess because it was so taboo before

It's been a ride Verb just happy to be back around here again. Thanks for the positive energy. Stop, your notification bells are thanking the green Gods :19:


Bode, it has been something else but you know what we take the good with the bad and the balance of life is what keeps us grounded.

No here it was rainy and 65!! I moved my garden over this time, too. So many things going this year. Still have some things left flower wise in the veg tent! Hope you have a healthy harvest and lower temps, thats crazy!

Missed you Bode and I hope all continues to be well, happy to be back to all of you. Happy smoking!

And here as promised is the leafless, ever fluffing ever giving me a hard time fighter of a beast of a plant, Pudding....

She got ransacked basically when the inspection came and thrown in the Shed. Her most bottom branch broke off and yielded a 1/4 dry. Now in a jar at 63 humidity.

Since the nutrient upping she has been filling in all the foxtail gaps all over her, top to bottom, with more huge foxtailing buds...

These plants smell to die for and taste the same. Super smooth taster I had from Aphro already.

She is 116 days today. Phew...I don't know how long this will take but I'm hoping around 30 days or less, I've got tomatoes to move out and new babies to move in

Sometimes the family will see the light over time. I have three very uber religious, uber Republican siblings/families. They very much are anti-weed. My mother and stepdad are similar in their weed stance, or at least they were almost my entire life. But after having to move back in with them following my accident, and the subsequent $600/month they watched me spend at the dispensary, they began to ask me questions like "you aren't just smoking to get high are you?" There was a glimmer of understanding. Then I got the Trump check and started growing with their permission, and now they are both heavy supporters of me and what I do, and anyone else who truly grows for medicine. They finally "get it." But that took years of work and me getting my ass paralyzed. It's rare, but it does happen. And I also think everyone's family's will take a step back on the vehemence of their stance once it's federally legal. We'll see.

It's the generation and mind set. " Brain washing "
It's like trying to de-program Cult members.
And you throw in religion and law and you will never get them down from their hight horse.
But no problem getting pissed drunk and poisoning them selves with Xanax and perks daily.
I'm about to rant:meditate::meditate::meditate::meditate::meditate::meditate:

Don't let them get to you.

I have no idea what is going on in there. I've managed to get her stable and she just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I've never seen a plant grow like her. She's not pretty right now, leafless and baron, but she smells divine and what she lacks in beauty she makes up for in shape and girth. Really struggled to get her where she is but she is just taking off...odd gal I got, gonna be worth it in the end.

That's the type of story I need to hear. It's different when I have the cops in the family. Apparently they've started smoking since they were allowed to on 4-21 but when I brought up growing in the past they were sure to tell me it wasn't good on paper. I highly doubt they will try to throw my life away over some plants but I just feel the eye without it even being on me. Hopefully they will all come around like your parents seem to have. I'm sorry you had to go through all of that Jon, certainly a fighter and a winner in my book

Right. It's the whole "don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up" syndrome. Some politician decided something based on their own personal biases and now the rest of us have to live with it.

It just ain't right. :confused:

I agree Bill, it's a de-sensitivity that will come with time...provided they aren't too drunk to see it

This down here though!!! Spot on!!

Thanks Krissi, I wasn't crying the blues just so you know, it is what it is. While I'm not sure the tradeoff was worth it, I am truly happy they finally came around. (heh) I'm working on step 2: getting my mom to smoke my weed. She's a smoker and I've asked her before. The stepdad doesn't smoke but seems very curious to try edibles. I have them both on CBD for their joints now too! But yeah, if I had cops in the fam I'd feel the eyes too. On the other hand, you never know, maybe you have some protection now!!! Lol!

Back to daily updates!

Pudding got some of her tomato friends removed and put outside so she's down to 3 purposefully to keep the RH up a little as it was going under 30 a few times and also to help prop her up.

The sole branch picture is her most bottom branch. Just amazes me what these plants can and will do even with adversity.

Salute

Love the veggies in the tent getting some primo light to get ready for the season. :circle-of-love: I wish I could share some of my veggie harvests with you. I went direct sow for almost everything this year. I did buy a few commercial tomato plants though.

Your puppetry! That is the only thing I worry about with doing a scrog or yo-yo strings to hold up colas. I worry about having to move them for whatever reason. I don't think it is a valid concern anymore. I'm blessed to only have my wife as the inspector. I need to give these a try and see how I like them. What do you dislike about using them?

and this exactly why I stay out of discussions based on politics, sex or religion and try to keep my mouth shut on the bud industry
:bravo::thanks:

Intolerance is seen on both sides in almost every situation that arises with those topics. I too will keep my mouth shut.

Highya Krissi,

Pudding is still making bud? She was behind Aphrodite. Did you say another 30 days? Doesn't look possible she would go that long.

I still have peppers and tomatoes to put out, but this planting moon is gone so I'll wait for the next one. Will be warmer then. Less chance of frost or windburn. Hope you're doing well! Happy Smokin'

I have so much overflow, my bed is not near big enough for all my plants! Love this season my friend and they loved both this light and the Maxsisun MG3000 to start off with.

I dislike that if buds are really fat there is nowhere to really place the attachment without them flopping over some, I guess it's like super cropping without super cropping though, evens out the canopy. She is just so heavy that there is no way I can leave her hanging by herself and you know I like to move my plants so this vs anything else more permanent, I go with this any day

I don't think so either but yes she stalled and now she's plumping away. I can't believe how thick she is becoming

Doing better talking to all of you! In the high 70s this week maybe 80, had to turn the AC unit on in the grow room
Sorry to hear of your troubles Krissi, but it's good to see you back. It wasn't the same without you :green_heart:
Thanks so much Budman I appreciate your concern, really do. You all are like family. My green family :green_heart:

The foxtail life....I'm so new to this...

Maybe I'll harvest next week, maybe in 2 maybe tomorrow :rolleyes::laugh: I have no idea lol

Not glam shots but tail shots plus one that shows how plump even those bottom foxtails are...gonna be a bitch come trim time.

Makes me wanna try the Dr.Grinspoon strain now....kinda like the different appearance and the heavy trichomes-could really care less how dense these foxtailed buds are so long as they hit like Aphrodite does

Happy Monday friends!

Highya Krissi,

I've never seen foxtailing like that! Pretty crazy!! I can see why you're concerned about trimming all those foxtails!! The better they hit, the more I like trimming!! They are loaded with trichomes. Have you looked at the trichomes?

I hope life has settled down for you for awhile. Stress is a killer. Happy Smokin'

I'm wondering about your state. I thought they passed a bell to legalize medicinal cannabis. Can you get hooked into that somehow to become legal?!? Happy Smokin'
