its spring time, the sun is shining, birds singing. babies fill little rooms, awaiting there journey to there final resting places. i decided to do a few things differently this year than previous ones. ill explain:
first, laws are changing every day it seems. people are getting hit harder every year. so this year im downsizing to stay as safe as possible. im doing my legal ammount of 6 per card. now i technically have 4 cards here, however were only doing 12 + 3 for the other 2 cards. yea im under the limits, should be better off.
secondly, im doing raised beds. After last years run in with Voles, Moles, gophers or whatever it was that destroyed a good few of my plants, i decided to make raised beds with 1/4inch steel mesh on the bottom so the lil fuckers cant come up n chew my shit.
the beds are 3x3 and 1ft deep. i decided instead of going with my cheap organic compost i always do, i was going to run nice expensive Fox Farm happy Frog soil. this soil is good because it already comes with some guanos and microrhyzias in the soil for good root growth. so i mixed in 5 bags per bed (thats 10cubic feet of dirt, approx 50-60gallons per bed).
Also this year im going to go back to seed starts. Normally i grow from clones, and with great results. im still going to do a few clones, but im going to try from seed again and see if it raises my yield due to lower plant numbers.
this years strain line up is the following:
Clones: TGU, Maui, Granddaddy Purple
seeds: Black, TGU x Durga Mata, B39, Dutch Dragon, Skunk #1 x Cali orange
not all of these will make it in the garden, but hopefully a good selection.
Stay tuned as u KNOW i love to post pics.
