Vermont 2019 white critical and blueberry outdoor grow

Have a couple ladies that I have been growing for some time now, ready to go outside.

This year I started with 3ftx3ftx1.5ft boxes lined with weed control fabric. I have filled these with some home made soil of my own design. I will most likely be making a Scog based setup on top and incorporating a pvc “green house” style cover for the end of the season. Although I’m still going back and forth on the final design here’s a couple shots of me getting ready.

At one point I built a pvc rain cover. It wasn't the loop type system as I needed it in the 8'-10' height range so it was more of pvc frames on top of pvc legs (slipped over rebar spikes) that I could tie tarps across. But after a couple seasons I trashed it as it was never water tight and I could never get the taps tight enough and water would pool up in the tarps. I ended up just getting a (good) 10' E-Z Up tent. Wasn't as cheap as the home made system, but it's much easier to put up/move away after the rain. If you can afford a decent popup (the cheap ones aren't designed for rain or wind) I found it to be a much better solution.

(I also got tired of sitting up on a ladder picking out bud worms on the colas, so keep my plants shorter now and they fit under the canopy.)

Set two of the ladies up yesterday. Should do well here. Also filled the largest RAW cone I could find (over 3oz), and tried to finish that this weekend with some friends. Damn I was ripped
