I see nothing on your attachments??I do! A mixed bag of different strains. Operating on minimal resources and the weather has been strange, but with luck we'll get through to harvest. I think I wonked up my first post so I edited it and re-added the image w a thumbnail. I forget how to work all this lol
Purple Master and Blue Poison Those sound amazing!!Pics are working now. Will upload more soon. The most exciting thing about this year is that I will be breeding several of my plants. I have some pollen leftover from one of my Purple Master (blue dream x master kush) grows, so I'm going to use that to pollinate a few of them. I should be able to pollinate a Blue Poison (blue dream x durban poison), a Flying Dutchman (unknown pure sativa strain brought in from amsterdam in the early 2000's, resurrected in 2013), and possibly even a Jamaican sativa strain. Also a small possibility that one of my plants is a Purple Master, because some of the seeds were mixed, so if that is a female there will be more, stronger Purple Master seeds. Fingers crossed for good weather
Purple Master is without a doubt the finest I've ever smoked. I was lucky to get it at all, as it was initially created through an accidental pollination! Very smooth, with strong berry notes in the smoke. It's heavy on the indica, so you won't be leaving the sofa, but still great for gaming or listening to music. You FEEL the music with Purple Master. Violet buds, with purple leaf edges and stems as well. Blue poison is also pretty great, more on the sativa side. An energetic, do-something sort of high. Not as smooth as Purple Master, but not quite harsh either. Bud tips so dark blue that they can appear almost black.Purple Master and Blue Poison Those sound amazing!!
They are coming along! It's been getting down around 40F (apologies for funky 'Merican measurements) at night so that worries me a bit since growth doesn't really occur below 55F, but the days have been long and hot, so the plants are doing ok. I lost two of the late transplants but I saw that coming so it doesn't bother me. The biggest problem this year, other than the weird weather, is going to be bugs. Grasshoppers and worms were a tremendous issue on my last grow, so I've been much more aggressive with pest control this time around. Wanted to make sure they had a good start, since last time my seedlings were almost eaten to death. I won't put pesticide directly on my plants bc that is a recipe for cancer later in life, so what I am doing instead is maintaining a closely trimmed border zone of short grass all around my plot, and the diluted pesticide is on the grass instead of the crop. Since I've been doing that, and also attracting birds w sunflower seed feeders in the surrounding trees, I have had almost no bug issues. As the plants mature, I will install more bird feeders so that I can use less and less pesticide around the garden. By the time the buds are forming, I intend to be using just natural predation to control insects. Updated pics later today!
