Second Childhood

  1. I'm probably old enough to be most of yours great grandfather. I smoked a lot when I was young. Burnt out on it and layed off for about 30 years. I recently got a couple of joints from a friend and really enjoyed it so I had her pick me up a quarter and was a bit shocked when I had to fork over $50. I used to get an ounce for $10 and they would usually throw in a little extra. Thats the way it was in the sixties. Anyhow, I saw right away that if I was going to start up again I was going to have to grow my own as my income is pretty limited. I got a couple of dozen seeds out of the quarter but have not had much luck at all getting them started. I have done a lot of reading on the net and tried just about everything suggested so I assume the seeds are probably bad. I did get one to start using the moist paper towel method and it was off to a fine start but went out one day and the leaves had been eaten off. I didnt think about the squirrels which can get into my shed. I was heartbroken. Fortunately I didnt throw it out and after a couple of days I noticed some tiny growth at the top and it now has a couple of leaves going. The other day I was surprised to see another one pop up in a cup I had setting outside so now I have two going but that seems to be all Im going to get. I'll just have to hope at least one of them is female. I did move my plants to a safer location. I had this experience once before many years ago when a small garden I had planted had all the leaves eaten off in one night. I guess animals like the stuff as much as we do. Really nice forum you have here.
