probably a good 45 min away...i live in highland indiana which is closer to chicago, but me and my friends have driven up to new buffalo michigan and that usually takes between 40-55 min depending on traffic
Bro im also from north west indiana about an hour from chicago, I buy everything from the hydro shop in new buffalo, has everything you need.
I would buy ff happy frog, some wormcastings, and some perlite and prep your holes with it at least 2 weeks before you transplant. I used earth juice grow, bloom, catalyst, and maxicrop soluable seaweed in my past outdoor grows. I had great results using this last year and its organic.
I dont put them outdoors until early to mid may, before that its too cold but I think were getting an early spring this year. They will start budding late july early august depending on strain. Use neem oil as an insecticide, trust me on this here bugs are bad and they eat.
