Dude, boooya!Sounds awsome!
This is my first Journal.....I have sucessfully completed a first time, 12 plant indoor grow this past winter. I have also constructed several DWC Bubbleponics units that are in use. DWC is amazing! They are super cheap and easy to build, alot faster, bigger gains with the plant and seems to be pretty worry free. For indoor growing, DWC is the way to go in my opinion.
I have now started 150 plants that I am going to transplant outside.I have these transplanted into medium sized ,drainable, styrofoam cups. I've been reading everything I can on gorilla/outdoor growing that I can. I've also been gathering the necessary equipment that I feel I need to complete the operation....
Over the past couple of weeks I've gone to Wal-Mart and purchased a few odds and ends thing.
Lastnight I took out the first batch of 25. I straped the Rubbermaid tote with my plants in it to the back rack of my Kawasaki Prarie 4X4 along with all the other items listed above and headed out towards the woods. I tried to keep the locations along the woodline where briars were thick. I chopped a narrow path through them and cleared out the center. When I was done for the night, I had planted all 25 plants in 2 hours in 10 different locations. Now I only have to do that 6 more times. haha. I stored all the locations with the GPS so I don't lose any! I think some are going into the corn fields which will be awsome using the GPS!
- Rubbermaid 20 gallon storage tote to transport 25 plants ($4.50)
- Machette to cut and clear paths through thick briars ($15)
- Rechargeable 12V One-Million candlepower spotlight ($15)
- Mini shovel to dig holes (that's what you do with it) ($7)
- Garmin handheld GPS unit with memory for 500 locations ($150)
I figured out of 150 plants, 75 (1/2) would be female at a guess. Then I figured I should be able to get close to a Q.P. per plant. In the end I hope to have a good crop.
I will try my best to keep things updated as things progress throughout the spring/summer maybe even add some pictures when they really start to grow.
Thats all for now.....~Outlaw~
Dude, boooya!Sounds awsome!
sounds pretty damn challanging for 2nd grow
Nothing i say is true, i do not use, grow, or condone the use of marijuana, every thing i say is a fabrication.
Excellent outdoor grow...nice...wish I could do that here but there isn't many places round here that I could get away with it! Make sure to comment on other peoples threads in the outdoor growing section with a link to your grow journal in your signature, you'll get a lot more responses to your grow from people with lots of experience!
I haven't put anymore plants out yet......still vegin' inside.....The chance of potential frost is deminishing each day we move further into the month of May. Farmers Almanc says May 3rd. for what that's worth.....I think each weekend I will put out 25 plants till they are all outside.
I will keep posting as I make progress......
Each planting I plan on checking the previous plants to see how they are doing I think......I don't want any well worn paths though! The last group of plants to go out may be in time for corn-field planting.....Corn is in the ground here now.....waiting for it to pop up and grow a few inches before I attempt field planting. That's all for now! ~Outlaw~

Geez I feel like a lazy bumb!!! I started getting sick Thursday evening, by Friday morining I felt terrible but made it the day through the Friday workday..... Went to bed really early.....Awoke Saturday morning for about 3 hours, (just long enough to mow the yard and drink a few cups of coffee) after that I was dead tired......went back to bed around 1pm Sat and slept till 5pm.....went to wal-mart got some tylenol and went back to bed!
Now it's Sunday and raining/blowing like crazy! Rats!
I know I still have plenty of time to get everything out and still be early but I feel disappointed I didn't get anything out this weekend! I need to readjust my schedule now. lol. Feeling much better today, may attempt to get some out during daylight hours if there is a break in the weather for a while.
On another note...had a sucessful first mailorder of seeds from HighGradeSeeds.Com.....Purchased three varieties, White Widow, Northern Lights #5, and AK-47.....total transit from mailing payment to receiving shipment was 9 days! Pretty quick! Germinating two of each variety for some mothers to clone from....hoping for a male out of the bunch to replentish seed supply.
youll get um out dont you worry!
Alright, today the rain ended.....I loaded up 18 plants into a large boxy chainsaw case and headed out the railroad tracks on the 4 wheeler..... Still daylight but didn't worry to much. Found several good spots along the brushy woodline next to the RR Tracks. Parked the 4 wheeler on opposite side of the tracks behind some brush (it's cammo anyway lol)
Got the trusty handheld GPS, Mini Shovel, Machette, and Chainsaw case.....found a couple good spots and started planting when I hear some 4 wheelers in the distance.....no biggy! finished planting the 2nd plant when I realize they are coming right towards me through the creek....Yikes!!
I throw the shovel and machette into the brush near me and grab the saw case and duck behind thick limbs of a fallen tree for a second. They keep getting closer and closer so I take off down the bank, sprinting lol, out of the woods to the RR tracks and start walking towards my 4 wheeler. Shewww! The 4 wheelers rip around through the woods for probably 15 minutes and take off.....I listen to them in the distance as they get further and further away.... I don't scare easily but that kinda ruffled my feathers a little! Now that I have my heart rate back under control I hoof it back along the woodline and plant about 6 more plants (Marking all with GPS).....At this point I have 10 plants left to get in the ground. I back track about 75-100 yards and cross the tracks to a pretty steep hillside (from base to top is probaly 30 feet) that leads up to a farm field. I planted the remaining 10 plants in groups of 2-3 probably over 50-75 yards along the hillside. None of them will be able to be seen by a passing train nor from the farm field unless you walk just over the edge at the top. At a guess I would say the plants could grow 10-12 feet tall before you could see them from the field. Sunlite should be abundant there also (late morning till early evening should allow them full light)....The soil there was awsome! Super rich dark soil but very sandy too! I think it should be ideal! I'll find out soon enough though I guess!
I only have approximately 100 more plants to go lol.....Hope this weekend is nice! Will post more as I make progress!
P.S. My White-Widow, Northern-lights, and AK-47 seeds have all sprouted, just waiting for them to break the surface now......
