"Impossible" soup sandwich
  • Ordered cucumber limeade once thinking it would be a refreshing cucumber-tinged beverage and it turned out to be more like a lime-tinged glass of thick cucumber glop. It actually tasted pretty good but the milkshake-but-a-cucumber vibe was just too much.

  • As a heavily mustachioed and embearded individual I am 100% down with a knife and fork sandwich, I’d eat this for sure.

    This was the final big pruning for my mainline grow, from here I'll just let the 8 tops grow upwards a bit and then flip to flower.

  • I've taken the 2nd and 4th nodes from each branch leaving each with 2 nodes with 2 growth tips each, so 8 growth tips total.

    My goal is a uniform "crown" of 8 colas so I'll continue to train each growth tip as they get larger to guide them into that shape.

  • @ed with surprising frequency

    "@ed"? This is new to me, what do you mean?

    should not tolerate them at all when growing outdoors so I don't seed someone else's crop?

    That's my personal take yeah, my nearest downwind neighbor is a ranch about a mile away and I don't think they're growing but you never know.

    My neighbor went full-on intentional seed factory in his gh over the winter, I guess that was low-risk though.

  • I have no idea, these were random seeds collected from various strains from dispensaries over a few years. Can’t complain too much about free!

    Two of my greenhouse plants decided to start waving their junk around, they’re now enjoying new life as compost. Here’s the other one:

    That leaves 4 in the greenhouse and 1 in the tent inside 🤞

    Okay, I see what the rage is all about
  • Right on, I’ve got a POTV Lobo with the dosing capsules. Love those things, keeps everything nice and clean :)

  • Okay, I see what the rage is all about
  • It takes some practice for sure. I’ve personally landed on a single jet zippo torch and 3 burns per bowl, starting with a quick burn near the tip for that initial flavor hit then working my way down to the base of the bowl with longer burns to get those clouds.

  • Harvest week growmies, but not quite yet. Album included
  • The idea is to get a slow controlled cure and not a quick dry.

    I’m in an arid climate and I generally cut individual branches, let those dry, then harvest the buds, but some of my friends just hang the entire plant up to dry. If you’re in a humid climate then you might look at cutting it down to individual buds.

    Lots of good info at https://www.growweedeasy.com/drying-curing and elsewhere :)

    My latest grow, one month in

    I started these from seed indoors one month ago as of today. The strain is Bye-ya x Cake Fighter, a freebie from Great Lakes Genetics gifted to me by my neighbor. I popped 6 of those and 6 rando bag seeds, ended up with 5 of these and 2 of the randos.

    Moved them into the greenhouse last weekend and they are as happy as can be ❤️

    Not pictured are the other Bye-ya x Cake Fighter seedling and the randos, I'm keeping 1 rando in the tent to play with mainlining, the other 2 are in the greenhouse with the others. In the end I plan to have only 2 girls in the greenhouse, any remaining females are going to fend for it al fresco for the entire growing season 🤞

    Leveled up to Lobo

    I used to vape with a little Pulsar APX but I got tired of cleaning teeny-tiny threads and screens, and the chamber is a bit small IMO.

    I picked up a Dynavap this past summer and really liked it, but those hot monster hits were starting to take their toll on my throat so I decided to give the APX another day in court.

    I gave it a good cleaning and was really liking the flavor and cooler hits, but it’s an old device and still a hassle to clean so I went shopping and landed on the Lobo from POTV.

    I love this thing! The chamber size is just right, flavor and vapor quality are great, the dosing capsules make cleaning mostly a non-issue, and the glass accessories are pretty nice. Having a swappable battery is a nice bonus too.

    Finally out of trim jail

    (previously)

    Finished trimming #3 last night, she was the last plant. Final yield from all 3 plants was 922g of bud and 144g of trim 😎

    The strain is Deep Line Alchemy 11 (Vintage Pakistani x 88g13/Hashplant) from Bodhi. I started from 6 seeds on June 14, acclimated them to the heat wave a month later, then moved them into a 4x6 greenhouse (too small!) to finish up. I ended up with three females, final chop was on October 11.

    Plant #2 turned out really larfy (except for the giant cola) and doesn't smell as good as the others but I'm hoping the cure will improve it a bit. I'm not complaining, I still got well over 20oz of good bud out of this grow. I'm set for a while now! 🌲🌲🌲

    Deep Line Alchemy 11 plant #1 in the jars

    (previously)

    Finished trimming #1 yesterday, final yield was 301g of bud and 35g of trim.

    (Not pictured: 10g from a branch that broke off 10 days early, she was a decent smoke so I’m looking forward to the finished product!)

    and then there were none

    (previously)

    I chopped #3 yesterday, the final plant from my Deep Line Alchemy 11 grow. Not a lollipop, I let her grow naturally but I’d already cut the branches before I took the picture.

    This gal was the one that topped herself naturally not once but twice!

    #2 had the biggest main cola of the three plants, but the three colas on this one combined are more bud I think.

    torch recommendations

    RIP Scorchy. Something broke inside and now it won’t spark. I’m going to attempt to repair it but I suspect I’ll be replacing it.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a nice twin-jet torch? I use it mostly with a Dynavap and would like something big enough to not refill every day but not too too big. Bonus points for a low-effort reliable trigger, a warranty would be nice too.

    Edit: fixed it, still interested in recommendations :)

    this ridiculous cola right here

    (previously)

    #3 looked farther along a week ago but #2 leapfrogged her and was ready to chop yesterday. Had to get a shot of that beautiful cola before the final cut!

    She's drying in the attic now, #1 should be going in the jars in a couple of days.

    Strain is Deep Line Alchemy 11 from Bodhi Seeds.

    1 down, 2 to go!

    (previously)

    Vintage Pakistani x 88g13/hp (Deep Line Alchemy 11), 1 plant is chopped and drying as of yesterday. The other 2 old ladies should be ready in about 1-2 weeks.

    (previously)

    Trichome development on Vintage Pakistani x 88g13/hp (Deep Line Alchemy 11), 3 plants at week 14. #1 seems farther along than her sisters, possibly harvesting in a couple of weeks. Should have all 3 in the jars by the end of October.
