Raining now and the snow is nearly melted. I got out in the truck and got all supplied up but nearly didn't make it back up the hill. I think it just needs a tune up.
All my seedlings are doing great and looking forward to nice wether so I can get back to cleaning oit the greenhouses and camp. There a 2.4 acre property just up the road from me for sale. I can aford it but it is covered in trees and no imprivements. Would be an easy move. I'd need a well and septic as well as fiencing and clearing. Still it woyld be just as far from town and just as likely I'd get snowed in during winter storms though. Still waiting to sign the papers on my 20 acres that is sold. Going to carry with a note over two years.

Can’t wait to see you kill it this year! Read a good amount of your journey can’t wait to see what you got coming this season. I’m just doing 5x 200 gal this year but I have goals to start going bigger next year. Best of luck!

Got most of my seedlings repotted before the storm. Got them under a hps 400 watt light in a 4 ' x 4' area . Looking forward to putting them under the sun. I want em big enough to take a cutting or two from each to root and place under 12 ,12 to sex.

My truck is down so I'll have to get it towed to the shop. Should have gave it a tune up earlyer. Today goung for supplies then if I get time going to ge see a person selling a swamp cooler. Every year I think about getting one for the RV and by the time it gets hot there none to be found at a good price. RV sits in the sun and running the AC costs more fuel on the generator
Hoping to convert it to 12 v and run off batteries and solar.

Cleaned up the weeds in my Greenhouses today. Next a few repairs . Put my seedlings out in the sun today. Have a couple floresent lights to add light to 18 hours but they will stay outside as long as it is no less than 50 degrees at night and it stays sunny. Need em big to take clones from.

Just heard they are still busting people for growing over 6 plants or transporting over 1 pound or without a medical recomendation or any amount without a recomendation here in Bitte County. There have also been a few dozen cases where they took property and fined people for growing starting at 28k and so far up to 60k. These fines are held against the land owner by way of lien on the property. So much for the tax,control and regulate laws passed into law protecting growers. Not happening ! We still need effective laws past to make cannabis legal .

I managed to cleat the road and fetch a load of water before the next storm. Lot of work for this old man ! Today I'm planning on fetching a couple loads of water. Trying to get my tanks cought up . The greenhouse is cleared of weeds and needs a little repair. All my seedlings are now between 3 and 6 inches high . Won't be long until they need to be repotted again.

I may have my 10 acres rented to own by a different party. Still looking for an other property to buy. One 2.4 acre plot of land is availible just up the road from me and I might make an offer on it. It has more useable land but would need cleared and a well put in. It would be eazyer to get in and out in the winter being on the top of the ridge . Same long trip to town and still above the snow line though . Wouldn't be able to move for a couple years but it's only a 1000 ft up the road from where I am now so it wouldn't be that hard to move on to it.

Re set the apointment with the prospected buyers of yhe property until tomarrow. Been raining and even had some snow that didn't stick. More snow perdicted . I'll be glad when mother nature calms down and it stays warm enough to put my plants back out in the sun. I still need a couple loads of water and need to make a few cuts on the downed oak trees to comepletly clear the roads to the creek.

Got my tanks all full. Going to get one more load at first light so I can run my pressure washer on the outside of the Rv and a few other things. Then the transfer tank comes out and I can go fetch my smart pots and soil! Looks like sun and worm for the next week. Going to makw a push to get as much done outside as I can.
