What strains are you other Aussies growing?

I’ve got some BigBud xxl (the ol’ chestnut), Zensation and an Ultra White Amnesia. All from Ministry of Cannabis because they have been the most reliable by far with getting past Customs.
Hey Anna, how's your garden been growing? Have you been practicing cloning or making your own seeds? That would get around the problem of customs.

Hey T
It’s average tbh. I didn’t get the same stretch as I normally do. And no...still buying seeds. But I’ve discovered a breeder that has so far been 100% successful in deliveries and decent, stable strains.
How’s yours? What strains? And any vegetable garden action? Regards & Respect, Anna

You should keep practicing on the cloning. Lollypopping/trimming often gives clone sized branches anyways. If you're still buying seeds, have you thought about investing into some good quality regular genetics and grown out 5-10 to find a decent male and breed your own? It will cut down on costs a lot, and if you don't clone your genetics might aswell try to breed your genetics. It's amazing how many seeds you can get from just a little pollen.

The veggie garden has been growing pretty good, though the slugs and snails and other pests have been getting a good feed. So far managed to grow some lettuce, beetroot, garlic, snow peas, sugar snap peas, carrots, mini cabbage, watercress, and hoping the potatoes can be harvested soon. I'm already behind for the spring/summer crops but I'd like to try some purple beans, red cabbage, pickling cucumbers, okra, different types of beetroot, 2-3 types of tomatoes, 2 types of chilli peppers, and maybe a zucchini and eggplant if I've got the space. And I didn't really like veggies much before, but I'm enjoying growing everything. Learning to grow weed has been a pretty handy skill to learn.

Hey T
Wow! That’s a very impressive vegetable garden. Good for you. I remember how satisfying it was when I grew mine. I recall I used to fill up a couple of small bowls of beer for the snails...they love it!! And half egg shells on top of the tomato stakes are supposed to help deter cabbage moths.
I’m really happy for you.
I just got some White Widow seeds yesterday which I’ve never grown before so I’m excited. Ministry of Cannabis - 8 days from ordering to letterbox!!

Great thing about container gardening is you can do it practically anywhere, you don't need good soil or any soil (other than what's in the pot), just a place that gets 6-8 hours of sun a day. Or you could throw a few veggie plants in with the weed plants indoors if you've got enough space.

Thanks for the pest tips, there's more than a few around. I really hope I don't transfer any pests into the grow room. Found a green caterpillar inside on my desk chair the other day. We got plenty of slugs and snails and always had cabbage moths but first time having cabbages.

8 days delivery to Aust? Very impressive. Good to see you finally found a seed bank that can deliver. I hear lots of good things about the Carnival strain MoC stocks.

Carnival, eh? Love the name for a start. Reminds me of The Notting Hill Carnival I went to in London once....with 1 MILLION other people!! Biggest crowd this little girl from a one horse town has been in!
I’ll send you some garden pics this week btw. Respect & Regards..Anna
