Glad to hear, seriously. It's need to snow for you. I am however truly excited for you and your harvest. You've got some AAAA chronic! Two months I'll be back to being medicated and more involved around here lol even my own journal is slackingStill here. Fire is still burning.....still on Pre-Evac. No direct threat at present....but this will go on until we get rain or snow so it's all still a huge crapshoot. We're just trying to be aware but not let it change what we do normally. It kinda drives ya nuts not knowing and being on the ready.
The first buds are starting to dry. We left the first 2 plants fairly bushy on the initial trim. Did a bit of final trimming on a few colas tonight. Now I remember why I don't "dry" trim.
Thanks for asking @yougrowyourway
I was going to get another 12 pots but the shipping more than double the price. 12 pots 12.96 shipping is 17.49. Still works out pretty cheap 2.50 a pot.Yes...that's where I got my 30's at. I just went there and dropped 20 - 30 gal pots in my cart....about $80....it says the shipping would be $20 on that quantity.
"Smart Pots" want $18 for ONE container....
How many were you looking to buy? Maybe a small quantity costs the same to ship? Still seems cheap here compared to "Smart Pots". Hope ya figure it out.
I must have bought them somewhere else. 247 showed i had a account but no record of my first order of them. I checked amazon could not find a record of it there either. It just goes against the grain paying that much for shipping ( 13 dollars for 12 pots and almost 18 for shipping) I guess if you were to reword it and say 2.42 per pot and free shipping it would sound like a much better deal.@Capt C
They warehouse/sell at amazon also....free shipping on $25 (across entire amazon site)
Not sure if it's all products though.
Their shipping on 5 lousy grow bags was $14.20. 5 bags total was $22.15
Amazon, same 5 bags was $9.99 total.
So let those dunmbasses @ 247 garden pots pay the amazon fee due to their ridiculous shipping prices. THAT'S REALLY STUPID on their part. They could have easily stuck those bags in an $8 envelope, instead of the insulting shipping charge which pushed me to Amazon. But even if the shipping was $8, they would still be 50% higher for the same purchase...their own stuff. wtf
Man that snow is welcome news. I would think that would calm that fire down along with your nerves.@Bodyne .....I used a 50/50 mix of Ocean Forest and Mother Earth coco/perlite. I reused the soil I used last year this year and will do so again next season. This year I used the Megapoop....then a bit of their bloom.....then switched to Big Bloom and Budswell for the finish. If I was guerilla growin I might think about some polymer crystals to extend the periods between waterings. Not sure how it goes in the Midwest though. Might not be needed. Holes will definitely stay wet longer. Out here I have to water the 30's daily when it's real hot/they are wee ones...and every other day later in the year.
Yeah guys...didn't check on any pots smaller than 30's for that shipping thing. Seems stupid I can get 20 - 30 gallon pots sent to me for $18.....and it appears the smaller pots are just as expensive to ship.
The fire has calmed with the cooler weather.. We are under a Winter Storm Watch...possibly 5-7 inches tomorrow night. Hope so. Could really do some damage on the fire lines.
Still sittin Lip Smack outside....was 60+ today and sunny. Definitely has grown in the last week....gonna be over soon though. Everyone else is drying well...a few come due for bagging everyday. Just lettin em sit and letting em breathe every-so-often. Really jonesin' it to try a few of these but am holding off a bit to let them have their due.
Had the CP resident Master Builder and a buddy here all weekend + a few days building on my shower room addition. Was good to hook/smoke/hang and to watch them at their craft. I'm a total hack in comparison to what they can do. Woulda taken me months and wouldn't have looked as good as this. Now i have a buncha shit to do. LOL. Insulated it all today (itches...scratches...) and am gonna try to get the eaves in and some paint on before it snows. We will see how that goes....LOL. Many thanks my friend...
In the end, I bought the vivosun 7 gal bags for $12 for 5. I have a dozen or two already, in 1, 3, 5, and I like the quality and the way the handles lay off to the side. Some folks on Amazon were griping about the 247 sizing/pots being small also.I must have bought them somewhere else. 247 showed i had a account but no record of my first order of them. I checked amazon could not find a record of it there either. It just goes against the grain paying that much for shipping ( 13 dollars for 12 pots and almost 18 for shipping) I guess if you were to reword it and say 2.42 per pot and free shipping it would sound like a much better deal.
whatever mix works for you for the dirt, then cut with 10% vermiculite. That stuff holds water very well.@stiickygreen, what is your medium in those pots. I got a chance to do a few outdoors next year, but more guerella style aka not being able to tend to em as often as normal. So gonna try to get em started inside and get strenghthen up, bug sprayed a lil and put outside. I should prolly dig a smaller hole, amend it, plant the small ones and just let go, prolly, I guess. Hope for the best expect the worst and almost try to forget them as then if they do make it, be a big surprise on top of the indoor. Just curious, wasn't sure if you did all the special teas, etc or just a more basic feed regime. Thanks in advance
They've upped it to a Winter Storm Warning with "5-9 inches with locally higher amounts possible".
