Its been a while...well not so long - since I have been regularly active. My life has been a bit busier than normal lately...certainly for the better so I have nothing to complain about really. But, I miss you all and the daily lessons I take away from almost every post I read here. I couldn't be more excited to get back into the routine of posting, contributing, and best of all GROWING.
Unfortunately, you fine men and women were not the only thing I neglected in the past month or so. I have done absolutely nothing to get my grow in order. A FINE STARTING POINT INDEED! Well I shouldn't say that. I have taken the liberty of ordering my soil supplies from buildasoil. They just showed up today at my office!
There was a mix up because they were out of stock of my pumice for a day right after I placed the order during the weekend...anyways I'll be getting the rest of my stuff in a few days. Those guys are awesome and I greatly recommend them despite this mistake...really friendly people. I know they have the support of several members on this forum. I'll go into more detail on what my soil will look like...and really everything else pertaining to my grow very soon :rolleyes3
I think many of you were already aware but did you know most seed banks no longer accept Mastercard because Mastercard refuses to do business with cannabis related businesses? So can you still use one of their cards at dispensaries? Well I wasn't, and conveniently as of two years ago my credit union switched everything over to Mastercard from Visa for some better features...so here I am trying to figure out how I am going to buy seeds. I tried to purchase a prepaid card at 7-11 with my debit card which was declined. That seemed liked an odd coincidence to me since I had just made a different purchase at a different store minutes before. I'll just have to take out cash, load it on a card, then purchase the seeds with the card. It could be nothing, but it got me thinking that someone somewhere is intentionally trying to make it hard to purchase seeds.
I'll wrap it up here and let you all know whats coming up next...
I'll be in Japan for two weeks starting this coming Thursday so I need to get my soil mixed and let it sit for a while. Me being gone actually works out perfectly in that way.
Phew so I said I was wrapping it up...let me just tell you briefly tell you why I called this "The Living Medicine Cabinet," and I'll be done
I'm certainly not the first, and will not be the last person to grow in a confined space. Some know them as micro grows. Call them what you want. My goal here is to demonstrate the potential and hazards of a space this small. As our country moves towards legalization in all sectors, many more people will begin to grow cannabis. Not all will openly embrace the fields of marijuana some of us have become accustomed to Some people, who only need to supply themselves, will want to approach this on a smaller and more manageable scale because of a need for discretion or maybe even because they physically/medically cannot manage more. Whatever it is, I want to provide them the blueprints for an easily reproducible, pure, form of medicine. If I can help anyone in anyway through my own journey I would be most satisfied!
So there you go...a half assed introduction.
You all have a good night and get ready to watch me do some growing!
