Hi Guys! Happy New year!
This year I’m gonna take you through my entire process starting with the soil test, preparation and amendments as well as the grow. From start to finish. Dad and I have been plotting and scheming a new trellis system for the cannabis this year as well. We have concocted on paper basically a sort of outdoor SCROG type caging system since the trellising was a nightmare last year and we were unprepared. So, I plan to share the initial prototype build and subsequent trellising system with you as well.
If you journeyed with me last year, you may remember that we had dug out special planters for the cannabis. These planters produced excellent bud, but being against the garage wall held it’s own special challenges. It was hard to get to the back of the plants, a few tried to uproot themselves as the back branches were trimmed off, so they all wanted to fall forward etc… Because of this, I will not be planting any veggies and such in my main vegetable plot in the middle of my yard and instead will grow 9 monster cannabis plants there. Don’t get too excited though, I know some of you really want to see ridiculous Mendo Dope Boys style monster plants. I’m not growing plants that damn big! Too much work for this middle aged broad. lol My 6 and 7 footers were big enough and I’m happy with a pound a plant yield. Anyway, the veggie plot will hold 9 giant plants in 3 rows approximately 5 feet apart if I recall correctly.
In addition to these 9, I will be growing a few Indica dominant hybrids in 10 gallon pots and one container plant specifically to experiment on, hone my pruning skills and try out some supercropping techniques on.
Thanks for tuning in! Here’s to a successful and bountiful growing season!
