Bro in that top pic, you have a wormhole at the branch/stalk. That is what weakened your stalks. Fish the worm out with wire, inject BT into the holes. Where there's one, there's many. Look for sawdust like clumps at stalk/branch location. Bet you'll find more.
Thanks man I’ll take a look.

Those girls got some time left based stricy on the pistols. My “White Wedding” looks like that too. Thinking at least (2) more weeks maybe (3). The weather gods aren’t calling for a freeze anytime soon so there’s that! Lol
True. And yes, its 1 qt h202 to 5 gallons for a wash

After finding rot on at the very top of Tirah 10 about a week and a half ago she’s been fine since. Still adding bulk. Just took a few hits of some of the bud I saved from cutting, it does the job quickly as I am already content and yawning. Flower smell is gassy cedar and smoked very smoothly for such green weed -C62A8337-CF15-4FA1-846B-2BC24AD72A0B.jpegBDBC23B9-58CD-42C7-B775-C02B424BCF56.jpeg068049D4-B40D-4C2E-BFC9-5C11A055AC5A.jpeg

You know -

when people inquire as to why we need to grow 10 plants this is why: because this year will probably end up losing a majority of my crop to mold, despite my best efforts, as I am going to take them as close as possible to FULL maturity.

I’ll probably only end up with maybe 2 whole normal plants worth of clean weight. And that’s probably not enough to last me till next season. Dispensary is SO expensive, so I hope this does last me. This last rainy cold weekend just destroyed my plants, inspite of my preventive steps. Quite humbling to be sure

Honestly it’s primarily my fault because I chose my strains poorly this time around, but the weather was a nightmare for me as well.

My disillusioned expectations (whining) are already well documented here, but this is my 1st time outdoors so I’ll continue to learn! I have a question though… Are your strains long flowering? My strains are all supposedly (9) weeks to finish and are looking pretty ready. With the mold/rot issues a real thing (I lost 5 out 8 mainlined colas in some degree to rot on 1 of my girls, burns my butt when I have to toss an otherwise great looking cola bud in the trash… while affecting the overall yield too) . Speaking of learning, I’m working the next 2 ladies for live trimming (still in pot) for cut down and wash, with my 4th under potential consideration (she started flower about a week later than the other 3), I recall seeing you wanted your ladies to go till Halloween. Isn’t done… done? Or am I missing something? It’s to long a grow cycle relevant to indoors to risk losing more than I can save imo. I dropped seed 4th week of April (indoors), a mid-October harvest seems like welcome news to me lol :D My indoors are typically 4 month… 4.5 months at the most and I rarely lose… but the cost of fueling lights really sucks too, so there’s that…

I just snipped a half dozen spots of bud rot off one of my already underperforming plants. Thankfully the weekend is here with clear weather. I’ll have more daylight to access trichome ripeness and set up the drying space.

This was the wettest season ever here in western MA. Hadn't even planned to grow outside at all this year cuz last season was such a disaster. But I had 3 extra clones and no space in the tent so I just planted 'em outside in the ground for a clone farm. Never fed 'em or watered them once. The soil there is about 3 inches deep, too and then there's bedrock. And it was complete shade almost all day long. But those plants still managed to flower and produce some small but fragrant sticky buds. Found a little rot but not much so far probably because the buds are small. Weather outlook looks okay for next few days we'll see what happens.

Tirah 1 bracts starting to show some purple. Coke can pom-poms without much popcorn. Love her structure. Getting resinous and is quite sticky. Zero mold! Gives me me hope I can take her deep into the month. View attachment 5004992View attachment 5004993View attachment 5004994View attachment 5004995View attachment 5004996 L
Absolutely beautiful, how long left u think? I'm hoping the end of the month too, but once mold starts raging, it's a wrap. Hurts my heart.
