    The summer harvest is barely cured and the weather is so freaking nice you forget we actually have winter here. I'm contemplating trying growing one more short grow on a Cream Mandarine & Blue Dream auto's. I'm curious has any of my near neighbors tried winter growing outdoors at all?

    Presuming you grow autos and it simply doesn't get too cold wherever you are in CA, (other than hours of daylight) what is the difference between any seasons or months for growing?

    You cite "summer harvest" - sounds like unneeded grow-limiting photoperiod mindset. Why not grow autos all the time?

    I'm in Australia and started my growing journey in winter, temps from 5c to 25c with my shortest day around 10hrs of light. My girls grew fine bud was a little fluffy, but still smoked great

    @BII I say summer harvest because I got a late start this year outdoor on my auto's (60days) and super auto's (125 days). I figured with this great fall weather here I might see If I can get another auto grow in. So today I started another Cream Manarine XL Auto which ran 60 days in my previous grow. I'm going to do it in a 5Gal so if the nights get to cold or rainy I can move it into the garage or house. Realistically if I started earlier this year I could have run three grows. Right now we have about 11hrs of daylight and slow decreasing with the temps 90-60F.

    The Blue Dream is off and running on day 4. The winter veggies are doing well too... The Kale and Chard re-vegged itself and the basil & cilantro are loving the soil amendments from Kellogg's..

    Have three autos going currently just up the way on the Central Coast, two were started the beginning of September and one just popped a week or so ago. I think it is best to get them started by September so we can take advantage of the beautiful, warm, and sunny month of October and they can get their growth on before the sun gets too far down on the horizon and the weather starts to cool. Either way, pop em' if you got em' is my motto.

    I got a double grape going in SoCal right now on day 28. My back yard gets completely shaded after 5, so I bought a tent and cob to supplement some light. Doing great.
