  1. Sadly, it is located within 20 feet of a stand of 100' spruce trees to the south so it gets lousy sunshine. Another stand of 100 footers on the west side as well so we spend much of the year in the shade.
  2. Hola Open Grow peeps. Things have been kinda slow in the grow room lately so not much to report. The Red IPA (Phuuu's IPA x Nepalma CBD) all turned out male so I kept one and chopped the rest. That left one lonely Green Ale (Phuuu's IPA x Green Manalishi) girl all by herself. The last time I had all male sprouts was with Santero's Poisoned Chocolate. I've been wanting to pop some more of San's handy work and this was a good reminder so I looked through my San selection and decided on NYCD x Lemon Thai. Three of those are sprouted and potted and are about a week above ground now. Fingers crossed some ladies will come from these. The Green Ale gal is an unusual example. She is short and bushy, very unlike the norm of tall and open. I'm just growing her for smoke so did not take clones. I will however be taking clones of the NYCD x Lemon Thai if I get a girl or two. We have had an incredible summer here but it is definitely on the way out lately. I've managed to get much done with all the good weather and though I am ready for a break it is good to have accomplished so much on my to do list. That I think is the only good to come from this year with the virus. My current project the last few weeks has been to build a shed to keep our new utility trailer in. For various reasons I decided to make it from pvc pipe with a corrugated metal roof. Today I will do some touch-up painting and then the roof can go on. It is 12' long by 7' wide and about 5.5 feet tall. It's been a fun but challenging project. Because of covid related shortages I had to source pvc fittings from 3 different places and their dimensions were not all the same which made it interesting trying to build two duplicate walls. In the end all worked out as planned and after 2 cans of glue and 5 cans of spray paint it is ready for a roof. Here's a look at the process... I'll level the floor of the shed with dirt and then put in some gravel to finish if off. Our little trailer will have a nice dry place to call home.
  3. Go for the Chucky's Bride you recently received. I bet you will like that one.
  4. You need a bubble cloner it seems. I made mine from a 3 gal. plastic tote, a couple of long airstones and a good air pump. A good pump will set you back $80 bucks or so but the other items were cheap. roots after 7 days
  5. The owl is not to blame here. It is an easy culprit but one not supported by reality. Forest management has far greater challenges than the spotted owl. This has much more to do with climate change and local weather conditions that came together to greatly intensify the fires. East winds of 40-60 miles an hour raced through newly started fires blowing them up exponentially.
  6. Best estimate is 5 million acres burned so far in the western states. We always have wind here on the coast, always. For days now it has been strangely calm and only light winds in the forecast. Here's a pic showing that smoke going to Michigan from the southern fires....crazy.
  7. Hello from a smokey beach. You may have seen our west coast is on fire. Over 100 large fires currently rage throughout the region and smoke has been a real concern here for the last week or so. Ash covers everything outside and the air quality is in the danger zone. Looks like rain comes in on Monday so hopefully it will lighten up a little. We've been hotter than heck here until the smoke rolled in and cooled us down 20 degrees. The flower room has been in the 90's for a couple weeks with the fan on high all day. The girls are showing their displeasure with canoeing fan leaves, they only need to go another week thankfully. I put the roof on our seating area in the back yard so it is officially done now and we've been making good use of it until the smoke showed up. I put up some solar lights recently and they give a nice easy light when it gets dark. A cold beer next to the fire table under the lights while toking on my vape. Doesn't get much better. In the veg area I have 3 IPA x Nepalma CBD that I am calling Red IPA and one Green Ale fem. The Red IPA sprouted faster than the GA and have not looked back. One of them (#2) is considerably taller than the other two and one (#3) is really short and stout. Gonna be interesting to see what comes from these. OK, enough chit chat, on to the pics... This shot was taken at around 11 am today and it isn't fog. That's all for now. Stay safe out there, cya next time.
