    I don't care, half these plants are dead anyway, next month is going to be just garbage and trying to turn these around. Ill snap some photos of the vcog13 when its done drying and give an end weight. It looks like 3oz max. Pretty colors though. I didn't harvest grizzly purple auto yet cuz it looks pretty healthy still.

    Yea, I think remaining an actively moral person keeps people out of your business more often then not. So, if you're "breaking the law" in the personal health sense, then nobody will notice. I don't sell diddly out of my stashes, even to best friends. I give them a mason jar ever so often but I look it as a garden plant and I love sharing my vegetables lol

    In insanely jelly, is this something you do often? What kind of yield you get ?

    depends on the year. sugar content of the sap varies season to season. last year was shit, 35-40 gal of sap made a gal of syrup cause of the funky weather. this year i think will be better. last year i didnt even bother running, the spring was so fucked up. got warm too fast and didnt get the freeze/thaw daily cycle needed.

    my first year, 3 yrs ago i got a modest couple gal, but quality was superb. then the next year i made 6 gal as i increased the number of taps i had + it was like the best year in 50 years from what i heard on the forums (bout 180gal of sap boiled down to make 6gal of syrup :lol: ) and last year was bunk.

    this year im hoping for an average season. glad the weather got cold again... was getting worried for a bit there!

    homemade tastes better than any storebought i've tried since running out of 2015's batch last year. must be the woodfire :fire:

    its a lot of fun to tend to the fire all day and watch it all boil down... but its a lot of work too. finishing the syrup is the hard part. cook to a boiling point of 219 deg F. at that point you've achieve syrup. then you let it cool to 190 and filter it through a series of filters to get the ultra clear, grade AAA finished product. I really enjoy it :)

    Fuuuuuuck I love syrup, in making pancakes now. I can totally appreciate the effort you'd put in. If its better than those glass jar syrup at the store then.. fuck. .. Must be so happy when you get it

    especially when i see 6 gal of it stacked up :hump:

    i make some badass whole wheat pancakes. nice and fluffy and from scratch (use white whole wheat). I make some badass belgian waffles too from scratch (little more involved process).

    i've thought about using syrup to brew up a compost tea before.... just never tried it.

    Some people have tried that route and came to the conclusion it wasnt as effective as say bs molasses, but never done so myself. Ive also used raw sugar cane pieces in my teas, made a hell of a foam...

    id try and see if syrup will get consumed by LABS while air tight or while aerated. You'd have to taste it to find out

    What do you guys think about utilising this as a fungicide? https://buildasoil.com/products/agsil16h-potassium-silicate
    I found this as I was searching the other day, any credence? Its potassium silicate powder & was recommended for foliar for PM. Ive not had PM in a long time here (usually on shows up on squash), but good to know what works

    "Also, there is increasing evidence (in the 'straight' horticulture world) to support the use of potassium silicate products as systemic fugicides, instead of as a source of P as they're usually sold in the cannabis community.

    Here's some links; http://www.pqcorp.com/products/SilMATRIX.asp

    Tell you what VN, we must have some kind of telepathic shit going down pmsl, was reading up a bit on silica myself last night and came across this quality post from @Cann stating similar stuff as your post. http://www.rollitup.org/t/subs-supersoil.539844/page-2#post-8469059

    The link you posted didn't work for me, but the site it did bring up looks like an awesome source of info.......cheers

    Yeah the Sour Stomper gave a nice weed. Nice aroma and taste too!
    Not my best auto though, that was the Fastbuds Pineapple Express, which was extremely complex in aroma and taste.
    I'm probably going to be growing both again next to tune in my new grow room. So in about a month ;)
