Hey Smokey

Yes everyday I cover them. Either in the morning or at night. So that I'm only giving them sunlight of 12 to 13 hour's a day.

This is light deprivation techniques.
The same techniques that @dankstyleJ is using out in Oregon.

This allows us to have at least two crops during the summer months grown outside.
I could possibly run 3 if I had a better Greenhouse and was a bit more organized . Also if I was really organized I could run as many as 5 crops in the summer. But that would take a little more room than I got and a couple more greenhouses.

But having a area to grow green plants in veg. Then I can take them to 4 to 8 weeks in veg and then put them from 8 to 10 weeks in a flowering Greenhouse using a light deprivation. I could run and harvest a crop each month from April through September maybe even November depending on the season and how much heat I want to spend on the tail end or even in the beginning of a grow season.
Hey GTG:pass:
You would have a bit of twilight there in summer? Summer here 12hrs would be about how much direct sun i can get, winter is 6-7
Light deprivation is good then, great to fit in more grows during summer. Light deprivation is good at flowering stage?:d5:

Yes light deprivation helps me grow at least two crops in the summertime without it I wouldn't be able to do it that way and would be stuck growing naturally which is fine for a one-time Harvest but I'm looking for more. So if I can shrink my daylight hours down to at least minimum 9 or 10 to 12 or 13 hours I can get a pretty good grow for flowering.
For photo Plants only. Right now my light in my region in the mid Michigan area pretty much anywhere in this Latitude is about 15 hours a day of Daylight right now. So my veggie plants are loving it and growing wildly big right now I got to do something drastic measurements real soon I'm going to have problems when end up putting them in the ground it looks like today or tomorrow.
Autos of course can have daylight all day long like @trailanimal. He is running almost a full 24 hours of sun light right now. So his plants are able to maximize the sun in his region.
You getting any of this rain today? Been a minute since I've had any down my way !
Yeah we're getting a little bit of rain but it's so light and so little it's not making any kind of difference but they're scattering across this and it looks like there might be some more coming at us this afternoon or this evening from cross from Wisconsin but I don't know I'm not holding my breath for it LOL

Four of my veggie girls are huge they grew a lot bigger than I anticipated them to grow in this amount of time I tried slowing them down by not feeding them and just give them just enough water to sustain life and they've grown bigger than the plants that I have in the big cage lol. So now I shall have to come up with some drastic measures I guess I'll have to put them in the ground and add some cage to my grow in order to be legal I'm thinking of harvesting the Humboldt seed organization OG Kush Autos and the Lemon Juice Express autos. Also the big yield Auto is just about ready as well it needs about another week or so really.

They're ready and I could take them right now and get them out of my way because I am pressed for space and they're done I'm just waiting for them to get more Amber.
