The 4th of August feels like a long time ago.
That's when i germinated my first 2 auto seeds, without a growroom or any clear plan of how i was going to get anything from these little brown nuggets.
i have filled in a few gaps between now and then in earlier posts. Now i am here, at last, in week 9 when i hoped, on that sunny August morning, to have something worth harvesting.

im really happy with how the older ones are coming along, and the 3rd one has grown a lot even since the pic was taken.
im a bit worried about the youngster. the autobubble doesn't seem to be doing anything.
I started this because i am sick of the price of weed. for decent buds i am payin up to £140 for a half Oz, and the quality is not always that good. i have set up now and I am a few weeks from harvesting...something...and have done it for the price of a half Oz.
Mysetup has evolved as i have learned over the last few weeks. I'm not writing this because it's the best method or the way to get best results, but for anyone considering a first grow, here is how i have done it on the cheap(ish).
the purpose of this is to record what i do so i can learn from it later. if it helps someone else, or if anyone wants to add anything please feel welcome!
My first steps into growing were taken on 6th August 29012 when my two seeds germinated and said hello to the world. their names were Speedy Gonzales and Critical Mass (Kannabia, Big Buddah) and they lived on my window ledge for the first 3 days while i tried to put together a grow room in the attic. their first home was crude,
