Summer 2020 first ever grow. Outdoors. I made a ton of mistakes in the beginning, but turned it around in July and August. Beautiful CBD in ground. Autos in felt pots. Right before harvest plants pulled from ground and pots. Not easy to spot from road. Very few people knew. Only person to see in real life was lawn guy who occasionally helps out with yard.

I now have cameras. I’d like to try a 2nd season. Aside from cameras, what else can I do to protect my potential plants?

I waited until last rain that night and so did they. On porch until about 3 AM, so they were watching when I flicked my last light off at 4 AM.

Am I stupid to try to grow again? I love working with the soil and plants grown in natural sun.

build a enclosure out of fencing a buddy did it and no one has stolen his 10ft ers in a couple years..
cameras are kinda useless, get something that will trigger an alarm..

Booby traps with (or without, lol) warning signs might be a deterrent.

Yeah once you get ripped off, that location is basically shot, thieves often return once they score. Unless you're going to camp out or fill your yard with free roaming guard dogs... I wouldn't risk it, at least not for a few years.
