The evenly spaced holes are pleasing to the eye. And the 5th pic down looks like a serious slab of hash, lol.
Guessing 5lb, I need to get a scale to help with consistency, that's part of how I lost the big piece, it was just a little too much clay.
Dang brotha, you make it all so perfect for my ocd.
All perfect in line and such.
Cool stuff.
Do you chop it with a big ass cleaver, like "Agghhh", Chop, "Die clay!!!"
Its an outlet in mote ways than one, unfortunately not able to work on the till friday. There is a wire from that stick on the end of the table, you see the wire in a couple of pics.
In my previous life as a cook those look an awful lot like the commercial silverware holders in reataurants!
Just an observation, they come in plastic too.
Looks good.
Belgian waffle style tile!
LOL, Not exactly what I was going for but I can see the confusion.

I did some boring research this morning on leaf surface temperatures at the top of the canopy. Huge variables in that a lot of factors go into the ideal LST. My take away from the research would be The ideal range for most strains would be (25-30 C ) or (77-86 F) LST. Inferred laser is the best way to measure canopy temps. Thermometers hung at canopy height tend to heat up and give a false reading. The laser guns on Amazon are less than 20 bucks. Now you can say you learned something today that

You're absolutely right. Lst is very important. When I was researching it I read that with led you need a higher ambient room temperature to get the same lst as you would from an hid light. Just my .02

I was running Black Dogs for a while. They recommended a ambient room temp at 82-84 degrees. I was not comfortable running that temp in my room. While i understand that those temps are ok it is just you are right on the edge of being to hot!

That's funny you said that. I believe my information may have come from their site. I run my rooms at 83 during the winter. This summer has me riding around 76±2° not too happy about it. Even though my colas are larger this time around I feel like if my LST was higher I'd see more of an increase in yield. Idk just something to look for next run. I've basically got my blueberry dialed in just a matter of not neglecting them which I've been doing well with lol.

How are you getting cooler temps in the summer verse winter? Did you mean to say 86+2?

Tending my garden(s) here. (insert James Gang tune). Also working on fixing up/readying an old "travel trailer" we bought a year+ or so ago. It's a 1957....and they don't make them like this anymore. No particle board and printed "wood" in this baby....she's all birch/bitch veneer...and the corners are curved veneer. Everything is original. Fridge/stove/countertops. Tile is new. Plumbing is all reworked/PEX'D. Need to have custom cushions made...but getting there. Moved her in place down by the creek. Hopin to find the energy (and help..LOL) to build a cover over her so she'll be here awhile...longer than me, likely. Should work well for the visitors who wanna do the "Glamping" thing...

That’s awesome. I’ve been wanting to get a pull behind trailer and do some traveling...Hopefully soon

What you fishing for @Main Cola ? Getting ready to sell a nice fishing boat if you know anyone interested. The boat is a custom built 22 Judge Yacht With brand new Honda power. I will probably list it this week on the Hull Truth.
I was fishing for Tarpon but didn’t catch any but I did catch some nice snapper on one of my smaller rigs
That’s a nice boat..why you letting her go?

I hate to sell her but i am getting to old for the trailer launching and retrieving stuff. She is such a sweet ride zero wood used during construction. Has Honda propulsion very low noise level and sometimes i think it makes fuel it burns so little fuel.

Nice Red and jumbo Spanish mac's. That's a pile of fun there!
Yes...it's on fire right now...ran over a huge blob of Reds...trolled it a few times...nothing...stopped and jigged...hooked up four, lost one...Spanish and Blues came on the troll...next time when I don't have to go out and then hurry 3 hrs home...we will jig more...much more productive...caught the Reds about 1/4m- S. of buoy #72 in sight of Point No Point. On my way outta the creek to start fishing.

Nah I was correct in my statement. I couldn't quite tell you why. Stand alone room ac keeps the room cool or I'd be in the nineties with 80-90% RH. So I'm at 76±2 which really sucks becuase I know at those temps my LST is not even close to where it needs to be. During the winter tho I run a nice space heater at 78-80° the tent gets to 83 and chills with 30-40%RH I had to bring in a humidifier for veg to get the RH up to the 50s. I just prefer the winter right now. I have my system dialed in for that. This summer has been a fun learning experience for me. Honestly wouldn't be as much fun if everything went smoothly all the time for me. I'm learning and would like to learn firsthand so being hands on with a lot of issues prepares me for later when things go wrong and I've already dealt with them.

As for today. I ordered just the new 36x20 veg tent for rn and some yoyos. I'll acquire the rest of the tents guts over the next month. Most likely tho it'll be Friday when I get paid. Drop 4-500 on everything in my amazon cart. Fuck it you only get one life.

Yep that grower skill can only be earned just like you are doing. I know my last few grows i have been seriously flirting with the lower end of that scale. My LST's have been pretty low especially with the light mover. Example right now my room temp is 82 LST is only 78-79. I have not not noticed any grow issues at these temps. I would like to do some more research on this subject. However i would like to search some stuff other than the study done by black dog.

If I come across the research studies on it I'll send them your way. I had no grow issues at 83 and my nighttime temps only dropped to around 76-8 and I had a great grow. Now if I only had my feed schedule I have now and all the knowledge ive obtained in the last 6 months theyd have been massive lol.
