Growing some Strawberry Cheesecakes Autos. Seeds in the dirt 5/22/22. I did a tent grow last winter from the same seed pack. There is no substitute for sunlight.
I’m in the north Georgia mountains. I probably have the ideal outdoor growing conditions. Lots of sun but not scorching due to the higher elevation and a constant breeze. Plenty of rain. We are the wettest county east of the Cascades!! Some years, we qualify as rain forest. I’m growing in 3 and 5 gal bags. I grow in the cart so I can move them to avoid downpours or excessive sun. I did put them into the tent once during mid-veg while we were under a week long monsoon.
No issue of privacy. Pot is still illegal in Ga. but I have 18 acres and my property is only accessible through a locked gate and a 1700 ft. steep drive.
These girls are all short. My winter grow was much taller but they had gotten light stretched. But the buds are very dense and the aroma is super strong. I smell these from 50 feet if down wind. The buds are as firm as a young lady’s breast and very sticky. I’m smoking Bannon right now and discovered I DO NOT like diesel smell/flavor. The smell of SBCs is making my mouth water.
I use Mix-A-Soil and rain water that I collect in a cistern. pH is 6.8 to 7. TDS is 40 to 50 ppm. Occasionally I give them a little black molasses and I did give them some Home Grown Flowertime booster N16, P6, K30. I don’t expect to add anymore Neuts.
I don’t expect much on yields. Maybe 2 oz. per plant if lucky. I don’t top autos. Other than repotting as seedlings into the pots you see, this has been nearly a no maintenance grow.
My question is: can I do anything at this stage of the game to boost the output?
that’s our “eating” garden with the wife weeding. LOL
