    Hey guys....

    New grower here. I have 15 Bubba Kush plants growing in my garden and they are 3 weeks into flowering. But its getting colder and wetter. Am I screwed because of wet and mold? Thanks !!

    I don't think you're doomed. There's a lot of outdoor growers up your way, search the forum for how they cope. Maybe someone that can help will see your thread.

    I live in WA and have experience growing outside. Are your plants in pots?

    Some are and some are not. The potted plants are almost done and will be fine. By my garden plants....are 7 feet high and are going to produce lots of bud. Here are some pics. Any idea when these will finish?

    Yeah, I've got plants in a similar state. Looks like they'll be done in about three weeks. Maybe less since the weather is cooling down big-time. It's weird how highs went from 85 to 65, and lows are now around 47. That should make em turn purple!
    On the bright side, they were predicting four straight days of rain yesterday & now they are saying only two. By tomorrow it may just be partly cloudy with zero rain.
    My yard could use the water, but I want my medicine garden to stay dry.
    If the weather goes to shit I can bring some of my plants indoors, but the two biggest will have to stay outside.
    If you've got tomatoes, now is a good time to hit them with neem oil. Brown fungus is going to show up with all of these cold nights. I've got some gourds that are almost completely consumed with powdery mildew. I may chop them today just to get that shit away from my other plants. My zucchini is very high brix and has zero PM -- which is a first for this time of the year. I should take a pic because it's normally a magnet for PM. 8-)

    Yes that's what I thought about 3 weeks. My potted plants will be done in a week. They are already going amber. Hot out today. Weather guys are always wrong so lets hope for the continued sunshine. I'm to understand that rain on the buds is worse than cold. So lets hope for SUN SUN SUN !!

    The most important thing is damp air or water settling on the plants. Im up here in western Washington and its a challenge. I use clear sheet plastic and make a semi rigid frame around my outdoor plants. Enough to keep the dew off and the rain, when it gets incredibly damp and muggy or overcast I drag out an oscillating fan and put it under the tarps with them. So far haven't had pythium or p.m . Gotta stay diligent though

    You better get those covered before the rain this weekend. Keep them dry and keep an eye on them. Look closely for bud rot. It happens quick.

    Look for bud worms too. Tis the season. Their webbing gives them away.
    Keeping your plants healthy is the key to success when weather turns to shit. Keep them fed and don't over water. They will drink much less now that average temps have dropped 20 degrees.

    Thanks for all the advice !! Nice and sunny today. Building a tarp system with one of those 2ft square fans to push the air around this weekend !!
