I believe if you plant every 30 days you can get at least 6+ harvests out of it. One harvest a month roughly. Start some new plants when your first batch are 25-30 days in maybe?
I’m personally interested in planting new seeds every 3-4 weeks and having a harvest once or twice a month if possible for me.
And then, would I give them till October, then bring them in for the final 12/12.
So my question, if I was going to start some feminized girls indoors and planning to put them outdoors come the end of may, how far along should I be.
I would imagine that I would still be in a strong veg growth at least for a while.
Looking for some opinions, This would be for Northeast US, in this part of the country, let’s just say you wouldn’t plant your tomatoes outside until the Middle or end of may. The Equinox is what like March 20th so the hours are still getting longer up until like June 20th.
Thanks for any comments.
It’s all bullshit – until you smoke it!
Johnson notes that the outdoor grow season lasts from around April to October, meaning if you plant seeds now, they’d still yield flower, but not much. Since it’s late in the season, he suggests buying a large clone, which will have more branches and therefore yield more flower.
When the pandemic hit, many of us turned to quaint pastimes to soothe our existential dread, whether it was baking sourdough, knitting, or doing jigsaw puzzles. If you want to expand your repertoire of distraction methods with an activity that still has that quiet, homey vibe, but with a bit more of an edge, consider growing your own weed.
Your cannabis will be ready to harvest at around October. You’ll know they’re ready when the buds “start to get really, really swollen and packed pretty tight,” Johnson says. But it can be hard to tell if you’re a beginner. Many growers say that if you think your plant is ready to harvest, wait two weeks, since many newbies tend to harvest too early. Or, you could share a photo of your crop on a forum and ask more experienced growers to weigh in.
Don’t go overboard, though, he warns. Start with growing three plants in five-gallon pots. This way, if one dies, you’ll still have two plants, and the pots will limit their growth. A general rule of thumb is that they’ll grow one foot for every gallon of soil. He recommends mixing your own organic soil, which he explains how to do on his website and will save you the headache of adding nutrients or pH testing. “The soil is what we call alive,” he says. “It’s always breaking things down to replenish nutrients that are missing.” But if you can’t mix your own soil, or don’t feel like it, you could buy organic Pro-Mix soil, which Johnson says many outdoor growers use.
Before you get started
To check if your cannabis is ready for trimming, perform a break test on each branch. If it bends so much it nearly breaks, then it’s ready, and if it breaks right away, it might be overly dry, but still totally usable. Trim off the buds and seal them inside a mason jar for curing, opening it periodically over the course of about four weeks to let moisture escape. Johnson outlines a detailed schedule on his website, including instructions on how to look for mold.
“For the City of Windsor to try to do a bylaw, they’re kicking a dead horse because it will be challenged,” he warned.
“I might as well get a pet skunk.”
The Town of Pelham, for example, passed an Odorous Industries Nuisance Bylaw last year that applies to all cannabis cultivation except people growing four plants for recreation. The town has purchased $5,000 Nasal Rangers (field olfactometers) that can measure the strength of odour coming from farm properties and requires growers to use air filtration systems. Kaschak is also hopeful the city can learn something from the legal challenge of Leamington’s bylaw, and that Health Canada will tighten up its regulations to reduce the volume that medical growers are allowed.
“From a risk perspective, it may be preferable to await the court’s decision on Leamington’s bylaw and/or the outcome of Health Canada’s public consultation before proceeding with a City of Windsor bylaw,” the report recommends.
The average daily quantity of weed authorized for people licensed to use it for medical reasons is two grams if you’re purchasing it from federally licensed suppliers. But if you’re growing it yourself, or having someone else grow it for you, the average authorized amount swells to 36 grams. That equates to 176 indoor plants or 69 outdoor plants, according to the report.
“It’s a bit of a disappointment, there’s no doubt,” he said. The report notes that there have been 10 complaints about cannabis odour to the city’s 311 system, all of them concerning one property, the backyard in Fontainebleau.
“But this one is certainly concerning to neighbours,” Kaschak said. “It’s affecting their quality of life with the smells.”
Cannabis rights advocate Leo Lucier, who visited the “jungle-like” backyard last year and even took a video of the massive plants which he said rose as high as 18 feet, said the complaining residents are making too big a deal of the odour. “You’re going to have complainers and Karens wherever you go,” he said.
In an interview Tuesday, Kaschak acknowledged that waiting to take action, as the report suggests, could cause the neighbours to go through another summer with the skunky odour driving them indoors.
