Change of Venue
Posted by - Today, 12:41 AM -I need a serious change of venue. I have a place in Northern Co., however I have health issues that are exacerbated by cold. So, I am thinking of going to New Mexico as I do qualify for MMJ. I will likely do some location scouting in May. I am looking for a funky, artsy town. I am not a city girl, so a smallish town, say under 5000 pop. My husband will be staying here. I would take enough money to live for a year, but will likely try to find a job in a nursery. No problems in the marriage, I'm just a wanderer needing to find kindred/like-minded folks.
Anyway, does anyone have any recommendations?
stoned ramblings, say or post anything you want.
Posted by - Yesterday, 11:33 PM -My GF asked me to roll a hash joint tonight, you may have seen how I do it, I roil a little log of hash and put it in a joint.
We just harvested some blue dream and it seemed a bit too damp to put in the grinder so she asked me to roll a hash joint with roaches in my little box. I rolled the piece of hash into the shape of a little snake (as MrDirt calls it) and put it in the papers. I tore up some half smoked joints and a couple of them had a hash snake inside of them already. So I put the snakes of hash of those two joints into the paper, and then the new snake of hash and a little weed in to keep it burning. The joint was pretty big, it must have weighed over a gram. I handed it to her and went to wash the resin off of my hands. I come into the bedroom to see her pulling on that big joint and blowing out big bellows of smoke. She did that old cough cough cough cough cough thing for a few minutes, but still managed to get about three or four hits. I took only one, which is sort of usual for me. Oh Man did I get high. It is actually the first smoke I had in a few days. Anyway, one hit and I am loaded. Next thing I know she says she is going to throw up, She gets up and moves around, gets closer to the bathroom and starts talking all this sicky shit. I say you took like 4 hits and that thing was filled with super fire hash. Anyway, she will have a drink of coke or a cookie and be fine in a few minutes I imagine.
I have been on the computer all day. We did leave to just drive around town a little, look at some garage sales. She seen a set of ladies golf clubs, almost brand new and she bought them for almost nothing (Golden Bear, whole set, bag, irons and woods $10). Clubs look like they may have been used once. I never get deals like this.
So we drive around town some more and come to this Giant field where we run our dogs and I hit golf balls with my pitching wedge. She wanted a lesson. Since she is just starting I put the ball on the tee for her and had her use a 8 iron. After a couple tries she starts to get a little air and starts to really like it. She tells me she is on for golf now. She did seem to take my instructions pretty good, head down, arms straight, so on. She is kind of strong too, from walking huge pit bulls around on a leash every day (for years). I may have created a monster. I no longer have the golf course as a place of peace and solitude anymore.
She was good at using her irons off the tee, there are a lot more elements to the game. She will probably do well at all of them though. I seem to have a way to teach people stuff fast. I taught my brother to ski in one day for instance. It is not like I am a pro at golfing or skiing, but I have had lessons for both and remember what was taught to me. Maybe tomorrow I will have her use her driver.
We ran the shit out of the dogs too. I love to see them run at this park. My pup turns 1 year old today and we have been wishing him happy birthday for three days. He runs like a bull! I like the idea of wearing him out so that he will sleep well, but in doing this we are building his body. We took him to the vet for a weighing and check up (86lbs) and the doctor noted that he was pure muscle, something that I already knew. This year has been challenging and it don't look to be getting any easier. He is the most needy, greedy, forceful, powerful, vocal dog I have ever seen. He wants everything I have and don't let up. While I am making hash today he kept crying and scratching on me. I had to keep handing him ice cubes out of the bucket to shut him up. I compare growing my pure Colombian Jamaican Sativa to having a pup like this at my age.
My girl has been sort of upset the past couple of days, she just heard her father was in the advanced stages of cancer and I find her crying when I catch her alone. I need to be good to her, better than usual.
Extrema - Light Sensitivity / Bleaching?
Posted by - Yesterday, 11:32 PM -Howdy,
I had a question for those of you who have grown Extrema. I am working with Fem stock from about 2 years ago.
Both phenos I have popped appear to be very light sensitive. I know about the hermie concerns (that comes from the Chem DD I am pretty sure Sannie used in this cross). That is not what I am referencing.
I am talking about a perfectly healthy plant that gets pretty bad inter vein bleaching/chlorosis.
The genetics in this plant tell me it would be an easy to grow heavy feeder. In veg, this always seems to be the case. However, every time I have run either of these phenos they started to have issues after the stretch. Part of the issue is that they STRETCH, god do they stretch. They always end up at the upper end of my tent, closer to the light than I would prefer.
This run I have on shoved in the corner. The colas all the way in the corner look great, lush and green. The ones that are closer to the light are bleaching the fans between the veins hardcore. Looks awful.
I have been fighting this for a while and was always surprised. My organic soil can usually handle sativas to indicas without much tweaking. I have a good handle on this and generally grow green lush plants. This plant always shows issues. I was scratching my head thinking I was messing something up, but it now appears unlikely.
Anyone else having this issue? Certain phenos worse than others? My first pheno was all Chem, the current one is more hybrid maybe even heri leaning.
money in envelope.
Powder from buds..
Posted by - Yesterday, 11:03 PM -Hey all!
Just got home from work to look at my beuties. Then I saw while just breathing out very softly that the closest plant gave away like a dust of particles. Its pretty warm in there, i know its not good for them but at this moment they are renovating my house so they got the whole house wrapped in some kind of plastic so I cant have any windows open.
I get that this is a BIG problem, the warmth. But I didnt really have any choise. I was midway when they annouced the renovation.
I presume that its spores of some kind and im afraid its the bad sort. I already removed the plant from the other, I just wondered if there is any way I can see if the other plants got infected.
The plant i removed looked alot different from the others.
I switched to 12/12h 2 weeks ago so the buds have started to form abit. But the infected one had alot of small "Cocoons" ?
Ive looked it up on the web and found something called "Powdery Mildew" and "White powder fungus". It doesnt look exactly like that cause i dont really have anything on the leaves, it just comes from the buds.
To sum it up, my questions:
How can I see if the others are infected aswell ?
"Should" they look like the plant I removed if they are infected ?
I tried to do some research of my own but I couldnt really put the finger on the problem.
