How much snow do we have....(drum roll) ... last weekend the U.P. 200 Sled Dog run (an Iditerod qualifier) was ended early because of too much fluff snow and no visibility. A little warmer weather this week and a day of full sunshine has the snow settled down a bit.

This is the sliding glass door to my bedroom. We still have a bunch of snow just not as much as you. There is a gap between the snow and the door only because of the roof lol

Too stoned to follow any format. I was born, raised, and live in G.R. This is my first grow of NorthenLights auto and Blue Dream photo’s. I’m growing in ffof with fabric pots. The auto is in a 3gal, and the photo’s in 5 gal. Using cheap LED’s looking to upgrade after summer. I started in a 3x3 tent, using a 6x7 room now. Hobbies are fishing, coaching football and Homegrown. I really haven’t met a strain I didn’t like. I prefer smoking flower but we’re going to adventure into edibles. Cheers all!! Happy growing

Fishing? My cousins and I would catch catfish in the Grand River near Leonard St. back in the 50's.

I was born at 1332 Broadway, Old Lithuania Town. Mom was 16, we lived upstairs and her sister lived downstairs. Grandparents lived across the street, they raised chickens in the back, this was 1946+. Uncle was a Monsignor at St. Peter & Paul around the corner. Dad was a gunsmith, hunter, fisherman and guitar player, ran around a lot, it was always fun when he'd bring guys up to jam. I got lucky and made it to the U.P. for my 10th birthday because Dad bought his own sport shop. Sold guns and Alumacraft boats, became the first Honda motorcycle dealer in the U.P. in the mid '60's. I got drafted into the army a year after I got kicked out of college. After Saigon fell I got to go to Bangkok where I met my wife of 45yrs.

oops, kinda stoned here too

Hi All! Love the Michigan home growers coming together here!

MI area: Kalamazoo
Grow Setup: 4x4 auto tent, 14 x 16 grow room
Grow medium: Good Organic Soil or Promix
Favorite strain: Not sure, but on a quest to find out :)
Favorite edible: Haven't explored enough to know
Favorite team: MSU Basketball and Football
Hobbies: All things gardening and plants, alternative/homeopathic health, Fungi, Air quality, ecosystems, and all things tech (hardware, software)

I have been learning so much from this community in my first couple Auto grows. The biggest lesson is really just to have a clear plan from start to finish and adapt the plan based on knowing your plants. Be thorough, be patient and occasionally be ready to be frustrated. Just about to start my first photoperiod plants, here's to hoping it goes well!

Nice to have you here my friend!! My wife is from Kalamazoo, her whole fam lives there still. We go down quite a few times a year to visit. Not a bad place as long as you dont go to the wrong side of town at night and get lost like I did lol.
