    Hey AFN Looks like spring has sprung in mid Michigan

    I can hardly wait to get outside and get started this year
    I started growing my outside crop at Christmas. I'll be making clones and growing from seed this grow season.
    Those of you who have watched me in the past know that I use light deprivation techniques.
    This year however I will be using those Techniques plus other traditional techniques to grow these crops.
    My goal is to grow my entire winter stock outside this year under the sun.
    This is not a goal that's unreasonable.
    I should be able to grow a very large quantity outside.
    (Weather permitting and Mother Nature allowing)
    I should also be able to harvest several times over the summer months.
    I'll be using photosynthesis plants and automatics this grow season.
    Those of you that have watch me before know I don't usually run autos. But I have found few breeders this year when I was shopping the Seed City seed bank looking for SeedStockers seeds for the the biggest grow battle in the world competition.
    I discovered quite a few breeders who claimed they had large yield and high potency fast growing autos. So we'll see

    I'll also will be using some bottled nutes this year probably one or two kinds. Mega crop is going to be definitely one of them.
    I am undecided on the other bottle one I'm going to run.
    Still have time.
    For those of you who watch me and know how I grow. Know I am not 100% organic I am 92% organic. So this gives me a little playing room with bottle of nutes and Commercial nutrients

    Some of the Breeders and strains that I'll be working with this year will be

    SeedStockers seeds
    Big bud and OG Kush Auto,

    Dinafem
    Cookies family test seed


    Royal Queen seeds
    Green gelato

    Pheno Finders
    Wedding cake

    Sagarmatha seeds
    AK48 automatic,

    Phoenix cannabis seeds
    Big yield Auto,

    Dr Krippling
    The Incredible bulk

    Advanced seeds
    F-Afghan Skunk

    Also be running some of my old crowd favorites

    Nirvana
    Aurora

    Humboldt Seeds
    Chocolate mint OG

    Humboldt seed organization
    OG Kush Auto test
    Lemon juice Express Auto test

    Seedsman seeds
    Silver super Haze
    Citrus super Haze
    Somango



    The grow season is still early there's a lot to do yet. I'll be updating this thread slowly over the next few weeks until we get to plantain and start growing

    Thanks for stopping by[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hello my fellow Michigan grower I to am ready to get back out doors. I don't believe u can beat the taste n smell of good Michigan outdoor weed. Last year I did 5 pounds with 2 plants so if ur hoping to stock up for the year it's easy to do. Last year I had lots of rain in lower Mich n had a slight mold issue I hope this year isn't quite as damp in the fall.

    Thanks DJ....
    About raising the roof right now on the grow cage trying to get it up to about 8 foot on the Northside and it'll be six foot and a half almost 7 foot on the Southside so I get a little bit of a runoff. Then going to throw some plastic on top of that to help with defeating any Frost issues might happen between now and the real grow season I'm also going to put some T5 lights in there to help take up the slack of the not full daylight so I can give my first crop a little bit of rooting time before I start throwing a tarp over top of them and start flowering can't wait.
    I got all those auto run now I'm thinking about running the auto so outside of the normal grow cage. I think I'm going to invest some money and put some more fence up so I can put them in their own caged spot outside of the regular grow cage and they can get light as long as the day is.

    Hey hey how are you doing down there in lower Michigan

    You can't be too far from me cuz I'm in lower Michigan I'm in Lansing area not too far away been growing a long time. I've legally been growing for 6 years on my medical license. I've been outside now steady for 4 years started doing light depth techniques 3 years ago this will be my third year. harvesting two or more times during the summer months easily growing quality cannabis outside.
    I don't even count the lowers in my poundage count. I only measure the quality flower bud. Last year's Harvest was smaller then my 2017 Harvest the 2018 Harvest was 12 lb from 9 plants of quality bud. The 2017 Harvest was 23 to 25 lb from 11 plants of quality bud.
    Last year I did things a little different then I did in 2017 and I had many problems health-wise that didn't permit me to run like I should have ran with all of my projects Crops.
    So this time around I'm doing things different again but I'm going to lean towards the 2017 grow on my photo plants and the auto will be in the beginning more but I'm going to harvest three or four times this summer two times with photos and many times with the autos.
