WOOT first post! lol
i remember last years grow. those trees were MASSIVE. cant wait to see how this one goes!
I know it's still a little bit early, but I was doing some work on the greenhouse & thought I would just get this years grow thread started. Cabin fever.
My DYI Greenhouse, is a Costco carport covered with plastic & sunscreen mesh for the walls. For any who may have missed it, there's a link to last years grow, below.
But for now, let's get updated.
There are many changes this year.
I have moved the greenhouse to the opposite side of the garage. Had to take out several large trees to do it. You can see the stumps & some of the firewood left from the tree removal. Was $2500 & 3 days work for 3 guy's. You can see me standing on one of the stumps. Let the sun shine!
I put some plywood into the lattice on top of the fence for a little more privacy.
I'm painting the frame white. The dark brown paint it had, would get so hot in the sun, you couldn't touch it! This will keep the frame cool & it won't fry the new top, or add heat to the greenhouse.
I took the carport legs off to lower the roof, in anticipation of the new plastic top. After I attach the top & sunscreen I'll raise it up.
Also, here's Molly, keeping a close watch.
And some clones, I just took for these years greenhouse
I'm gonna use 100gl Smart pots this year, should work well.
So,for now, here's a quick starter post on all the pre-work. I'll add more, as things progress
Let's get this show on the road & happy growing everyone!
All comments & questions welcome

subscribed!! good luck and stay safe on the ladder this year
Its never too early too start. Good Luck on your grow this year I will be watching. dirrtyd
What's up Double jj-
Damn your neighbors are close. Looks like 5' of yard between the fence and their houses.
Your new spot looks like you have better security vs. the driveway. Can't believe you grew those monsters last year in your driveway with the neighbors so close. Your neighborhood must of STANK to high hell last fall....lol.
Glad to see things moving along, any word from Hodge? TLD was supposed to pick up some Medijuana and Crooked Prairie seeds from him for me, but they never crossed paths since me and Hodge talked. Anyways tell him hello if you talk to him.
I'll be watching...
Hey folks, thanks for the kind words. You know I read all of your threads.
Yes, this new location is closer to the neighbors, but much more Sun. I haven't talked to the neighbors about MMJ yet, but judging by the Obama bumper stickers on their Volvo, I assume they aren't staunch anti-drug conservatives. The other guy is a single & older man & just moved in, my biggest hope is that he leaves his back yard light turned off this fall.
I'm going for shorter plants this year, so less ladder work. I have an OrthoDoc appointment in a couple of weeks, gonna finally have the knee repaired.
Haven't seen Hodge for a couple of months, but I will say hi when I see him. I have some Medi & CP seeds from him started for this year. I germ'd all of the seeds he gave me or I'd send you some. I will be taking clones from the females in a week or so, maybe you want some clones?
P.S. Here's a link to last years grow, Carport greenhouse 2010: Carport Greenhouse 2010

Pulling up chair!!!
Was that 100 gallon or what did the gl stand for? I've thought about going the smart pot route this year but not sure about the pro's and con's vs planting str8 in the ground?
Yes 100 gallon smart pots, they're kinda small by local standards.
Most of the BIG BOYS up here use 200 & 300!
Killer thread man! Cant Wait to see how this goes. Really looking forward to giving this a try. Brilliant man with simple ideas! what strains ya runnen with?
