Week 13

A cannabis plant has a hard life here in this mountain climate. We had some early September snowfall which bend the branches of the plants at spot1 almost to breaking point. Nothing that couldn’t be fixed with some binding rope, but far from optimal of course. Luckily last week the weather changed back to almost summer and they got some much needed sunshine again. Considering all, the plants are still doing pretty okay though. 50% is about 2 weeks from harvest, the rest will still need a little

Another week, another update

Another week, another update. We have had bad, rainy weather all week up here. But the ladies don’t seem to mind it that much. Cut the lower 4 branches of all plants, since they won’t do me any good anyway. Took up the good camera today and made some nice pictures for you guys. Photographed the spots from an uphill angle this time to change things up a bit. Think the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. Spot 1: Spot 2:

WE’VE GOT FLOWERS!!!!

WE’VE GOT FLOWERS!!!! The weather forecast for today was severe rainfall, but it being me only free day this week I had no choice but to go up to the spots. The downpour was indeed severe so the pictures that I took are not that good I’m afraid. The thing that makes me wonder though is that the plants at spot 2 are considerable smaller than the plants at spot 1. I would estimate the difference in length now at about 30 cm. They also show some yellow leafing, which the plants at spot 1 don’t sh

Another Update

Here’s another update for you guys. We had a heat wave here the past weeks with temperatures up to 40 degrees and no rain at all. I just started a new job, so I wasn’t able to go up to the plants and check on them. Luckily my lovely wife made the trip one time for me and gave them some much needed water. She told me though that the wind had blown a few of the plants over. So I knew that it was time to stake them up on my first free upcoming day. The high temperatures and the lack of water caused

Update End Week 4

Small update again: The plants are showing the 1st signs of bloom, so started them on Bloom feed. A Deer stepped on one of the ladies at spot 1 when walking past, put it upright again but it’s a little bent. Ah, it’ll grow towards the sky again soon Will stake them up sometime in the coming week to prevent them falling over. Till next time!

Update Start Week 2

Today started sunny and super nice, but the moment I started walking up to my spots the heavens opened and delivered a truly gut drenching downpour, as can happen with unpredictable mountain weather. Had to walk up to both spots soaking wet, but really wanted to check up on the ladies so I stuck with it At both spots the ladies are doing great. They seem to have taken root pretty well and have already grown a considerable bit. The pictures were unfortunately taken in the pouring rain so the lea

Finishing touches on the Spots

Today I went up to both spots for the finishing touches. At Spot 1 I touched up the areas on the growing bags that I missed last night with the spray cans. As a Deer repellent I have a number of things now: The smell from the spray cans. The smell from the dog and cat hair I scattered around. I placed half a bar of fresh smelling soap at the corner of each bag to ‘add a human scent’. The smell of my dog that lies and walks around whenever I’m working on the spots. As insect repellent

2nd Planting Trip

Today I planted the 2nd batch of 12 ladies. Had to do it in the evening and just noticed on the picture that I missed some spots with the spray cans because the daylight was fading fast and I couldn’t really see what I was doing all that well. I’ll just touch it up next time I’m up there. All 24 ladies have been planted now, so let’s hope for an awesome summer with lots and lots of sun! Will go back to the spots almost every week and will take pictures every time to post here. So keep checking

Picture Updates First Weeks

There wasn't enough sunlight at first so they stretched a bit in the propagator. Then luckily the weather finally turned and they could go outside. And the sunlight started to do it's glorious work. This was yesterday. Small bushy, compact plants that look pretty healthy to me!

Preparing for our 2nd Mountain Grow

Here we are again! The preparations for our 2nd Guerilla Mountain Grow are in full swing! We've really learned a lot from our first endeavor. The most important being that one needs early flowering ladies here in the Alps. Otherwise the early snowfall kicks you in the butt after all your hard work. So I contacted my good friends at The Devil's Harvest Seeds and asked them for a feminized strain that would do well here. So without further ado...... the strain for this year is...... Shoreline by
