Hey folks, finally feeling more myself and have been able to get a bit more done in the garden, sorry for the while it took to get an update through. Here’s the situation outside right now (we were just barely hit by the big storm that rocked Ontario, thankfully no damage done).
Here’s what the back yard is shaping up like right now. All the Copa JR77xGSDF5 testers are super healthy. I topped them all yesterday, to keep the height down and allow them to become a bit more bushy, we’ll see how they take to that but nobody looks sad today!
I also tossed an auto fem bean that I’m playing with and have sent out to some folks on here that I bred in my grow tote, tentatively called MephMonster, into my little raised planter box with my lavender & strawberries. The lineage is a ridiculous amount of Mephisto - hence the silly name - including but not limited to, Double Grape, Forum Stomper, 3 Bears OG & Skywalker, to name a few. I don’t have high expectations for growing this outdoors, and in such a shallow grow space, but I’m hoping it will atleast look nice as a decorative plant and maybe give me a bit of frosty, airy, buds to add to my hash bag.
The Autoflowers are all loving their lives, both organic and the one getting citrus feed. The biggest one on the right is CDLC x SODK (Citrus Feed) from @BasementBeans in a 1 gallon pot - outgrowing it’s organic, living soil-planted sisters from RocBud (Raz-Berry Runtz) & Barney’s Farm (Gelato Glue), which are both in 3 gallon pots.
There are still a few photos vegging in cups/smaller containers behind the autos that are not able to be seen. These are Bhudda’s Cane (going to my neighbour who’s wife has cancer) and Gushers x OGKB, both from @ShitSeeds. My Pink Tourmaline from Cult Classics decided it didn’t want to break soil after showing my a nice long taproot when it germinated. I likely fucked something up there, kinda bummed, but they’re fems and I still have a few more I can pop later. Sooo, I popped another Auto bean instead, True MAC Auto F4 from RocBud (MAC x Grape Dosi Breath Auto), which I should be able to finish before my late summer travel plans, where a re-popping a photo, that would be less realistic.
These are the Pineapple Sunrise (RocBud) x ??? In the competition I’m in sponsored by Wildwood Seeds. These photos are a few days old, but we’re getting really close to finish now on 2/4 of the plants, especially the largest that I left to grow most naturally. Beautiful sweet, earthy scent coming from the tent, and the colours are fantastic.
You’ll notice some tacoing and signs of heat stress. My central AC unit died overnight earlier this week (another reason I’ve not been posting, dealing with some shit) for 2 days, and these poor girls took the brunt of it, the tent was in the 90s when I woke up that morning, and the tacoing & heat stress was clear. They still smell nice so I’m hoping there wasnt too much degradation of terps, but certainly took a visual toll on the plants.
I’ll try and be more active with the posts now that most things are outside in the garden, and I just have a little bit of building to do to beautify things/hide the plastic totes.
