Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Santa was good to me, brought me a new camera with all kinds of knobs and buttons to figure out. Here's a few shots of the Purple Hindu Kush and Truck girls who are 3 weeks into 12's.

The PHK are looking great, already some nice bud growth and there are lots of them. The Truck is reaching for the sky, still adding an inch or two a day.

Gotta figure out how to shoot macro shots with the new camera. I did figure out the white balance so making progress. This thing has an users manual about 600 pages long so taking me a bit to absorb it all.

Enough chit chat, on to the pics...

Kinda nice to get back to peace and quiet around here. Grand kids are great but they sure can wear a guy out. Our 3 dogs have been sleeping two days straight since all the company left.

Best to all in the coming year. :verrygood :spliff:

Hey thanks guys :tu

Been playing around and can get decent closeups now that I figured out the different focus options.

With a good camera comes every dog and cat hair that comes through the house. I have very few good close ups that don’t have a hair or fiber. 

With the macros, a tripod will really help. You’ll get hooked once you get some cool macro shots of trichomes and any cool spot on a plant. They’re  truly beautiful to me.

Happy New Year peeps. Hope you had nice holidays and are ready to get back to business in 2020. We've got a lot of weed to grow. :D

All was good here at the beach except the weather but it wasn't awful by any means. Chilly and rainy with some wind mixed in. We've had some impressive tides and waves lately but so gray and yucky that I didn't make it out shooting with my new camera. 

The house is almost back together after putting Christmas away for another year. Multiple totes filled to the brim and waiting to go back in the loft. Christmas is a lot of work.

All is looking good in the grow rooms. Today I up-potted the 2 Purple Hindu Kush clones to #2's. I did the same to the Truck clones over a week ago. They have very different growth rates these two.

I won't veg the Truck clones as long as their Mom because there won't be room for 3 of those big girls in my flower room. They will get up-potted to #5's in a few days and then off to 12's they will go.

Veg area 2.jpg

Veg area 1.jpg

 

The PHK clones are another story. They will get topped soon, then they will veg awhile before I take more cuts. I'm leaning towards keeping the #2 PHK only but we'll see how they finish before choosing. I have 1 more PHK just sprouted that I'm really hoping is a male. My goal is to make a bunch of seeds from these so fingers crossed I can find a dude in the few remaining seeds that I have.

On to the flower room and as you can see the Truck girl grew some legs since last time  you saw her. She is about 46" now and will probably finish around 49" after going to 12's @14". Except for her height, her overall structure is similar to the PHK's but that is where the resemblance ends.

Truck (train wreck x huckleberry kush) @ 26 days, I did her in 2 pics, top and bottom.

The PHK girls are bulking up rapidly and getting more purple all the time. The are also at 26 days in 12's. I see many possibilities for these beauties down the road.

Really liking the look of the PHK girls. I can see working with these for awhile and I have a few crosses in mind for down the road. 

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by. :tu

What do they smell like? Hash?

They have a lavender/coffee/hashy smell if I rub them. Not too fragrant otherwise yet. Couple more weeks and I bet they start smelling good.

 

@bigun Thanks man, best to you in 2020 as well

They look beautiful Beachbud, love the deep purple:). That hoppy smell on your IPA's is pretty cool, intriguing.

Rain and wind and maybe snow on the way. Welcome to January in the PNW.

Good day to sit inside and update the grow log so here we go.

The ladies in the flower room are 5 weeks into 12's and are coming along nicely. The Truck girl towers over the PHK's but what the PHK's lack in height they make up for in eye appeal.

I put one of the two Truck clones to 12's a couple days ago at 10" tall. The other one is gonna get topped soon, as are the two PHK clones. This will buy me some time for space in the flower room and will allow me to get several cuts from the PHK.

Here's a look at the veg space.

So far all I can get is girls from these PHK seeds. I started another one last week and it showed 2 pistils before it was a week above ground. I'm thinking these must be selfed seeds and will continue to give me girls so I am gonna turn to colloidal silver and see if I can get some pollen that way. I really want to preserve these PHK if I can, they appear to be the real deal. 

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by, cya next time. :tu

We are having King Tides currently at the coast. Yesterday and overnight we had a decent little storm blow through with west northwest winds 30-40 mph steady with gusts over 50. Those two things combined to produce near 40 foot seas and great wave action. Sadly it has also meant flooding in many coastal towns near by.

This morning it stopped raining but it was still cold and windy. We decided to brave the elements and went to check out the wave action at Waikiki beach. No, not that one. The one at the base of Cape Disappointment, a light house at the mouth of the Columbia river. This is a great place to see and hear the power of the ocean and the wind. We arrived just before high tide and though it stayed pretty gray a little brightness crept in now and then.

I gave the new camera a good workout. Amazing how fast it is. Here are some of the many shots I took.

Beautiful @BeachBud! Been a long time since I was there. I remember how rough it was off shore in winter there. I was awed as well. That’s a stunning corner of the world. Not to mention when it’s sunny. Plus, the seafood! Thanks for sharing.

My trim bag was getting full so thought I should do something with it. I usually break out the little washing machine and make bubble hash with my trim but that is a lot of work and time.

This time I gave the dry ice sieving method a try and am very pleased with the results. I wound up with 27.5 grams of kief that I stuffed into five 25 micron squeeze bags and ran through my rosin press. After cleaning off all the parchment sheets I had a nice 4 gram ball of rosin. Really pretty stuff, kinda dark deep purple in color.

On to the grow room where stuff is getting stinky. The Truck and 2 Purple Hindu Kush girls in the flower room are 45 days in 12's now and the PHK's are smelling good. They have a wonderful lavender/kush/coffee aroma that fills the room now.

Kinda bummed to see a bunch of nanners on PHK #1 starting in week 5, maybe half of her big buds have a nanner poking out. A search of PHK #2 found only a couple which I can live with. So, I will use the #2 to take more cuts but I will go ahead and grow out the #1 clone that is vegging now. I am not too surprised. Nearly all the seeds my buddy and I have popped turned out female so I thought they were selfed and this discovery bolsters that belief.

The Truck girl is wishing I had given her more N but is doing well otherwise, I forgot how hungry this big girl gets. She is bulking up nicely but still has a ways to go.

The veg space is filled with a Truck clone that I topped and a clone from each of the PHK girls and a PHK sprout. The clone from PHK #2 got topped a week or so ago but the #1 PHK was left natural. I put the Truck girl in the flower room this morning at 18" tall so expecting another big Truck coming.

Here's a look at the veg space.

I'm guessing about 2 more weeks for the PHK girls, maybe 3 or so for the Truck. Stay tuned.

What size pots are they flowering in, Beach? Very nice looking as usual. I have a couple of plants doing the single nanner thing. Actually one. Another was just beginning popping male flowers on the bottom of the plant. I seemed to have stopped it by removing every small limb that had them. It was already known to do that so I'm actually glad to get a chance to finish it. It's supposed to be a wonderful tasting one.

@Mr Goodfellow they flower in 5 gallon pots. I have two different types, some are narrower and taller than the other ones. A few nanners later in flower does not bother me much, especially on a landrace like the PHK, they know how to survive even without dudes around.
