Thread name jack from one of the classics. Anyone that knows, knows. Let's kick it off, come here for a vent, for support, to flex, post music, whatever. Just no trolling please. Heated debate is AOK.

I'll kick it off with this. Been struggling with the obligations of parenthood, career growth, and getting my most productive run ever to the finish line. A lot to juggle, and there are a lot of nuanced impacts through and through. This forum used to have iconic threads one could dive into and get discretely personal, and a lot of that culture seems to have faded as the world has grown. I can't help but reminisce, and be inspired by previous mentors to push through and recreate a new gen forum for this kind of thing.

In terms of the topic of the host, I'm getting ready to harvest these ladies, they're two or three weeks to the finish line. Post it up! Whatever it is, let's support one another.

I'll leave this here as I'm sure some can relate:
How do y'all deal/reason with a spouse or significant other who doesn't share the same passion for growing cannabis? (She likes hash exclusively but even then will only buy it 2-3 times a year)

My wife is a saint (given the fact she married me😁) but I get the eye roll/sigh when I bring up needing to purchase items for growing...she seems to think all that's needed is to plant a seed, water and voila, a healthy cannabis plant is produced! If it were only that easy!

She's especially sensitive to, and always comments on the wonderful aromas the plants give off in flowering. I've just started my first indoor tent grow from seed in the basement of our townhouse (2 plants, almost 2 weeks old, my first grow was outside) and before they hit flower I need to get a ventilation system bought and put in place. That's gonna be a nice conversation lol. She'll hem and haw before ultimately giving in.

I try telling her it's a bit of an investment in equipment, supplies, nutrients, etc. But future grows will be more economical since I'll have what I need for successful farming.

How does anyone else deal with situations like this?🤔

It's always "There's a reason it's called weed, leave it alone."

Could take the approach of using the opportunity to buy some bubble bags too, so once you two are done trimming up the harvest, you can share the scissor hash then make some bubble hash 😁 turn the hemming and hawing into a winning situation for her too!

Full disclosure, I'm not married and my ol lady smokes waaaay more than I do, so she was all in when I got back into growing. She also taught me (through experience) how to get what I want without much fuss from her, so long there's benefits on her side lol

Mornin all. Kinda hung over, shouldn't have drank a six pack of IPAs last night.

Gotta get out in the garden and get the covers pulled off, put away, get some more peat moss spread and amend with blood and bone meal. Then, get the old 1/4 hp rotatiller running. As much as I don't want to till, last year showed the soil is just too dense of clay and I don't have much choice.

Sunday Funday! Worked my ass off today. Didn't touch the big raised bed yesterday as I had planned, so got to it today. Pulled the covers, but the local garden center doesn't have peat bricks in yet, so figured it's good opportunity to let the soil air out a bit in the interim.

Did a bit more cleanup though and things are shaping up for a good jump on the spring plantings. Veg closet is packed right now, so won't be able to start anything more right now, but once I harvest this round, everything in the closet can move to the tent for a bit. It'll be a few weeks before I have anything ready to run in the tent anyhow.

One thing not done yet is getting that tiller running. Just didn't get to it this weekend. I'm sure it'll fire right up, it just needs a good spray down and the plug checked.

Think I've opted to go with soaker hoses again this year though. Running drip irrigation with the potential of moving late summer just isn't a viable option.

Anyways, would love to see this thread get more traction! What yall up to?

Damn.. no traction on this thread. Looks like this forum doesn't get to the timeline these days. @Aqua Man @1diesel1 can either of you confirm if the smoker's lounge doesn't hit the main feed?

Either way, looking back at those pics, that run was beast. Wasn't terribly impressed at the time, but looking at an old pic changes perceptions. Still could've done better. lots of waste in that one.
