    I have no idea how this works, new to site, new to growing...friend tossed some seeds in garden and whoops the damn thing is 7 feet tall now and I just hope the neighbors don't see it. Looks like buds all over the place, sorta white, sorta green - what happens next and when. It's a mild climate here.. someone told me to try to hold out till just before first frost. Is that right? then what????

    I read some advice on this site about pruning the bottom branches where there aren't too many buds. This will supposedly put more energy into production of the upper ones. Correct? And should I go ahead and dry out the clippings and give them to my friend to try, since I don't even like the stuff. Or toss them?

    Correct. yeah let your buddy smoke them. They wont be that great but it should give him/her a buzz. A friend with weed is a friend indeed.

    Will the clippings be some indication of what to expect from the real harvest? We have no idea what seed actually took hold since he'd been tossing some out there over time from a couple of different purchases. I understand the seed is key and not the growing conditions. In other words this may be cheap weed and not worth the risk I'm taking leaving it out there in my flower bed for neighbors to potentially freak out about. It seems to have stopped growing upward, but as I stated earlier it's gotta be at least 7 ft tall, maybe more. My neighbor down the street is a real pothead and she's inquiring about samples, and my cleaning lady informed me she just noticed the damn thing a week ago while sweeping my porch and she wants some too. So several people are emotionally invested in this experiment and I'm worried it may be a dissappointment to them all.

    Not really. I mean it may kinda resemble the final product but its definitely not going to get you high like a mature bud. One thing I would like to point out is the growing conditions mean a lot. So does the drying process. If I grow some bag weed I can promise you it will be better(unless its a hemp cross) than the bag weed. Just because I would put more time into it and wont treat it like some crop in a field. Im sure the cartel that grew the weed doesnt have rollitup.com in their corner either. lol.

    ohhhhhh....thank you, that sounds so encouraging! I guess we'll just proceed and see where this goes. It's been fun watching it mature. I'm an enthusiastic gardner and feel like a proud parent.

    I feel the same way about my sprouts! At night I go into my grow space and talk to my little "green babies". I know it's probably the carbon dioxide, but I feel like they grow better when they know my voice and hear it often.
    If having a actual kid produces anything like the feelings I get when I see my plants grow, I might actually consider having one.:roll:

    Can't beat nature at her own game I guess. Oh well, I like being a part of the process.
    I can smoke with a feeling of accomplishment.

    i think it depends on if it is female or not , if it is and it doesnt get too fertilized ,meaning not to many seeds , they wont be dissapointed , it might be far from the best but is definatly good enough for people wanting free weed . And watch out for thieves , were i live they dont ask , they just take
