Hey every one, I have been debating for a long time wether or not I should do an outdoor grow this year or not. It has ben quite some time since I have gone geurrilla I think not since 2004. When I was thinking of doing it this year I wanted to start my own plants early and put some out at the start of june with them starting at a verry good size. Because of my procrastination and undecisivness I cant grow the plants that I wanted to and now I have to revert to getting some clones. I have access to some Blueberry x Hashplant clones so that will be my strain for the summer. I have made an agreement so that I can get them at a pretty good size, defenitly not as big as i wanted to have mine but it will have to do. I will be putting them out sooner then origionaly planned as well. Over the next 2 weeks I will be preparing my site. the last time I grew outdoors I just stuck to basics, dug a hole planted the plant visited to water when needed and what not. This year I plan on doing things a little different to make it a little easier for me. Hopefuly this year will be a good trial run of my new system and I will be able to make any fine adjsutments to improve it for next year when I will grow my own plants and do it Like I wanted this year. When I go out to do work I will take some photos to keep you guys updated on the status of the site and how its looking. But I will give you a brief description of what will be happening over the next 2 weeks. My site is just one of what are probably many random openings in the middle of a dense forest. mostly cedars with some pines and other trees scatered about. my peticular opening is surrounded with all cedars except at one end of it there is a pretty big pine tree. what I plan on doing is setting up a self watering system out there so I dont have to visit as often. I want to get a rain barrel out there and hide it below the big pine tree to be my water resivoir. i dont realy have any water sources to close to my site so if i can do this it will make my life so much easier. I have a battery operated digital watering timer that I will be hooking up to a spout I will be making on the bottom of the rain barrel. I will have a hose that goes from the rain barrel and around the plants. I will poke holes in the hose where it will leak out to water the plants so all i have to do is set the time for when i want it to be watered in the morning and or night. This way I can jsut keep the rain barrel full and it will catch water when it rains to help keep it full. I thought that maybe the pine needles could fall in the water and i dont know if it would mess with the PH of the water or not so i think i might throw a layer of screen on top of the barrel to help keep them out as well as any bugs who would be attracted to it and drown in it. For Soil I think that i am going to use a mix of compost, manure, black earth, and worm castings maybe some peat moss as well. If I remember correctly I believe I can get 10 plants in my site. I think thats all I got for now so just a quick recap 10 Blueberry x Hashplant clones Growing in compost, manure, worm castings, black earth, maybe some peat moss Setting up watering system and preparing grow site Aim to plant in approx. 2 weeks Wish me luck and il keep you updated. Thanks for coming by, hopefuly you choose to stick around.
